I supervise an after-school game group for teens (mostly boys), and they're pretty good board gamers. (I played the 'Lord of the Rings' co-op game with them and we actually won. If you've tried it, you might know how difficult that is.) We jumped right into the advanced rules of Flash Point (Recruit Level) and it was pretty easy for us, but the boys immediately wanted to play it again at a higher difficulty level, which speaks volumes to me about the fun-factor and replay value of 'Flash Point.'

Like most cooperative games, each player has a specific role within the group based on their skill or character. Flash Point is unique in that players can actually change their specializations during the game, so you don't get stuck the entire time with a skill that becomes useless or redundant at some point. I think the player specializations in 'Flash Point' are more thematic than in any other cooperative game. In 'Shadows Over Camelot' (my other favorite) for example, character skills allow you to do things like pass cards between players or look at the top card of a deck - helpful, but artificial. In 'Flash Point,' your skills might allow you to treat wounded victims, dispose of hazmat, or use the truck to spray a large area - things real firefighters actually DO.

Most co-operative games follow the formula of "take your actions and then something bad usually happens" on each player's turn. Players then must talk and decide how to utilize each of their skills to slow down the bad stuff while working toward their shared objectives. Nothing new in that area here, but again it's the way the design incorporates things like chain explosions and structural damage to create tension and a sense of urgency that fit the theme of firefighting so well.

We like co-op games when we find a good one. There are not a lot of great options out there, but when we find one we like it has a regular space in our gaming rotation. Just to give you a few points of reference, Pandemic is one of our favorite games and we play it regularly. Others like Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Star Trek Expeditions, and the Lord of the Rings all have something interesting to offer, but just did not do it for us so we don't play them anymore (though we do sometimes break out Forbidden Desert when we want to introduce someone new to co-op games). I'd place Flash Point somewhere between these other games; not as good as Pandemic, but much better than the rest. So, I'm giving it 3 stars, which on Amazon means "It's ok."

While there are some things to like about the game (innovative mechanic, strong theme, multiple difficulty levels, and lots of expansions), there were a couple of key issues that put it in the "it's ok" range for us.

(1) Our main feeling about the game was that there were too few real decisions to make. Most of the time the only good choice was obvious... you either move toward a victim or fire, carry a victim out, or put a fire out. Only occasionally do you have to make a tough decision about doing one or the other, discuss strategy, or plan for the future (see next point). Pandemic (which should be a familiar point of reference for many people reading this) offers a lot of real choices options/choices, and often requires a lot more planning and discussion (i.e., where and when should we meet, build, treat, cure, play special cards? What's the best way to get around the board - drive, direct flight, charter flight, shuttle flight? Should I save this card to cure disease, give it to someone else, or use it to fly somewhere? Etc.).

My son is really into firefighting right now, and we wanted to introduce "Family Game Night", so...
The game is quite simply amazing- there's enough to the family rules to make it fun and exciting (and replayable), and for older players there are a further 3 levels of difficulty which introduce greater complexity.

Our 4 year old couldn't wait until Friday night, so we played Tuesday afternoon. As the board set-up (and game play) uses a combination of die rolls (6 sided and 8 sided), he could handle that part all by himself. The mechanics of the game play were simple enough for him to understand, but the strategic aspects were a little beyond him; no matter, he enjoyed fighting the fires, leaving mom and I to rescue the victims. With guidance, he did make some rescues on his own- notably, two victims who were trapped on the other side of the house from us, leaving him their sole means of survival. His pride in extinguishing the fires, rescuing the victims, and saving the day was pure joy to watch. Sure it was only moving cardboard counters around- to him, it was real.

This game is really astonishing. The way the fire spread was unpredictable and made for some tense moments. The rules are very simple but allow for complex mechanisms to play out. We were able to play through in about an hour, with little consultation of the rules after about the first 15 minutes or so. For little ones, there are plenty of tasks to keep them engaged, even if they don't understand the whole concept or don't yet grasp the strategy.

One final note- the game is completely cooperative: there are no individual goals, and you win or lose as a team. This is great for introducing the concept of working together, reinforcing others' efforts, and making use of others' strengths (especially true when you use the advanced rules with unique firefighter roles). While it's possible to lose a game, no-one will get hurt feelings as a result of another player's actions.
