Game night is a fondly held household tradition, but all too often, we’re pitted against our family and friends instead of enjoying their company. Giving you a cooperative mission to focus your efforts on, the Flash Point Board Game turns you and your loved ones into a full blown fire department intent on extinguishing an out of control blaze.
At the start of each game, a distress call is placed that sets the team on full alert. After choosing specific roles for each player (Paramedic, Hazmat, Driver/Operator), you work together to save victims, extinguish flames, and move throughout the collapsing building. Easy to explain and only requiring an hour to play, the game can be made more interesting by alternating rule sets (family and experienced) or navigating the three difficulty levels.
If the base game alone isn’t enough to get you aboard the fire engine, how about some expansion packs? The Urban Structures expansion pack gives you two new buildings and a new firefighter type, 2nd Story spreads the action over two floors, and Dangerous Waters takes to the high seas with a ship and a submarine. The most complete expansion, Extreme Danger, includes six new buildings, more miniatures, and more tokens for in-game play, as well as a box to hold the other expansions. Each expansion comes with the necessary game board and scenario specific rules.
