Flash Point: Getting along like a big house on Fire!

March 28th - via: teamcovenant.com
I wanted to let you guys know about one of my favorite board games, Flash Point: Fire Rescue. It is a cooperative game that up six players can enjoy. Each player takes on the role of a firefighter in attempts to save victims trapped in a burning building before it comes crashing down on them. It uses a creative dice grid system to advance the fire in the house thoughtout the game. Explosion and Hot Spots help to give this game a realistic sense of urgency as they destroy the foundations of the building while knocking down firefighters as well as killing helpless victims. The cooperative nature of the game makes planning a big part of how the game plays out. (Read More)

Meople News: Burning Trains on Fire

March 21st - via: meoplesmagazine.com
You probably noticed in the review that we really liked Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island, but that it’s easy to get rules details wrong or miss some rules when playing. To fix that, there’s a player aid for download that not only summarizes how things happen in which order but also shows the distribution of dice symbols and beast strength for better risk assessment. And when you’re on the game’s website already, there’s also a blank scenario sheet for you to come up with your own ways to suffer a horrible deathplay. (Read More)
