Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a fully cooperative game, everyone plays on the same firefighting team - win or lose together! Every turn is filled with the tension of having to fight the fire back, rescuing victims or investigating points of interest. Players can ride the ambulance to safety or fire the engine's deck gun in a desperate attempt to control the blaze. No two games are ever the same - and with two rulesets (family, & experienced) and 3 different difficulty levels there is a challenge to be had for all.

I picked up the game almost a year ago, and have played it frequently. I was not drawn to cooperative games before picking up this title, and since playing it, I have picked up several other popular coops (D-Day Dice, Robinson Crusoe) only to sell or trade them later. Flash Point, on the other hand, I have kept, backed every expansion, and treasured. It's one of those annoying games that you take to a gaming meet-up and everyone wants to play... every time. As a result, I often leave it at home, because if I bring along the latest, most exciting, new Euro-game - and Flash Point is also in the bag - you can be sure I'll be talked into playing that instead. Fortunately, it's a great game, so I shouldn't really complain!
Very Brief Summary of the Rules
The board shows a map of a house, marked with a grid and simple coordinates to locate an individual space on the board.Read more ›
The Concept: You play as a team of firefighters with the aim of rescuing seven people from a burning building. Losing more than 3 survivors to the flames or allowing the building to collapse ends the game in failure for the team.
Players each take the role of a firefighter. Each turn a player has a certain number of action points to use either moving or firefighting (or performing other actions; see advanced rules). Players must get to 'point of interest' tokens to revel if there is a survivor there or if it is a false alarm. Survivors must then be rescued from the building.
Following the action phase, dice are rolled to determine how fire spreads through the building. This can result in smoke, fire or explosions which may cause structural damage or further block your path to survivors.
Family (Basic)/Advanced Rules:
The game has two sets of rules: The 'family' (basic) game introduces the core gameplay mechanics (eg. movement, firefighting, fire progression etc.) and is very enjoyable on it's own. I would advise all new players to have at least one game with these rules, regardless of your previous gaming experience as it sets the essential turn order and mechanics up without clouding the issue with overly complicated rules. The advanced rules add in different firefighter special abilities (eg.Read more ›
For these reasons I think it's great game for the younger audience, but not for a gaming group.
You each play the role of a fire fighter or someone from the emergency services. You have to work together to get people out of a burning building. I like the way you can change the difficulty so you can have a nice relaxed game or a real challenge. Great mechanics for fire spreading and building collapses.
Expansions allow you to play different roles and put out fires in various buildings, airports or even a submarine. However even just with the basic game you really have a lot of hours of fun.
