"Great coop game without the player bossing problem of Pandemic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you like Pandemic, Shadows over Camelot, or Lord of the Rings (Knezia), you'll love Flash Point. It is a coop fire fighting rescue game with all players working together.

It borrows a lot from Pandemic, but personally, I think it does a better job at keeping all players involved, unlike Pandemic, which suffers when more experienced players end up telling everyone what to do, and it becomes a play by proxy game. Flashpoint involves all players continuously. Two games (Family and Advanced) and several skill levels, not to mention cheap expansions ($22 each at some suppliers), will keep you coming back for more.

"Great game for kids and adults"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Flash Point is a great game for both experienced gamers and younger players alike. The game can be set up in either easy or advanced mode. Easy mode is great for teaching kids about fire safety and introducing them to boardgames, whereas advanced mode throws in extra modifiers like hot spots, toxic chemicals, and the ability to use the water gun on the fire engine. This is an excellent game and one my family really enjoys.

Description

The call comes in… “911, what is your emergency?” On the other end is a panicked response of “FIRE!” Moments later you don the protective suits that will keep you alive, gather your equipment and rush to the scene of a blazing inferno. The team has only seconds to assess the situation and devise a plan of attack – then you spring into action like the trained professionals that you are. You must face your fears, never give up, and above all else work as a team because the fire is raging, the building is threatening to collapse, and lives are in danger.

You must succeed. You are the brave men and women of fire rescue; people are depending on you. This is what you do every day.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a cooperative game of fire rescue.

There are two versions of game play in Flash Point, a basic game and expert game.
In both variants, players are attempting to rescue 7 of 10 victims from a raging building fire.
As the players attempt to rescue the victims, the fire spreads to other parts of the building, causing structural damage and possibly blocking off pathways through the building. Each turn a player may spend action points to try to extinguish fires, move through the building, move victims out of the building or perform various special actions such as moving emergency vehicles. If 4 victims perish in the blaze or the building collapses from taking too much structural damage, the players lose. Otherwise, the players win instantly when they rescue a 7th victim.

The expert variant included in the game adds thematic elements such as flash over, combustible materials, random setup, and variations on game difficulty from novice to heroic. The game includes a double sided board with two different building plans and several expansion maps are available.
