    This is the best family board game I have played. It's co-opera

    This is the best family board game I have played. It's co-operative, so there is no animosity and the game is different every time you play, thanks to the random fire spreading. Every time the game gets played, we wind up with two or three games played since no-one wants to stop, especially on a loss. The game is pretty hard, but since we have fun, even when losing, it doesn't hurt.

    Ever wanted to be a firefighter without setting a real building

    Ever wanted to be a firefighter without setting a real building on fire? My wife and I absolutely love this game. Started out by using the "Family Rules". They simplify the game so you learn the base mechanics of how the game works. The Advanced Rules make each player a "Specialist" + introduce more fire spreading tactics. This is a cooperative game, so everyone must work together to save the victims/pets. Fire spreads after every turn and makes the game very dynamic. Also, the board is double sided to tame all your firefighting needs. Can't wait to take it to the parents to try out. Definitely recommend!

    This is a great family game. My three kids, whom are 13 (boy), 11 (boy), and 8 (girl), all love playing this game. The variety of specialists (characters) each with their own power make it so that each player can have their own special role in rescuing all the victims. The specialists are all well thought out and some combinations (Captain & Paramedic is great) just work extremely well together. All in all, this is an awesome family game. Being a co-operative game, the team wins or loses as a team.

    As a well-designed cooperative game, Flash Point is one of the more frequent games we pull out for family board game night. I am able to get my three five year olds actively involved in the gameplay, as we work together to try to save the victims, the house, and put out the fire. Each love to choose their own firefighter (which is quite consistent) and so they have learned what their special ability is, and what their available moves are. I'm able to help direct action, keep people on turn, and remind them of actions like spreading fire. But because this is a cooperative game, this help is welcomed, and we all work together to solve the game. I will note though, that when a victim is "lost" in the fire, we have amended that into meaning that the victim now needs to go to the hospital (instead of being dead). We are now starting to incorporate the expansion sets into our play (2nd Story, etc.) and can easily see that this is a game that will have a long lifespan in our family.
