It is a great game that can be played with family, non-gamers, and gamers alike.
R. Flaherty
Choosing the right role for the current situation is important, as circumstances can change quickly as the fire spreads.
A. Morgan
This game has proven to be a challenging experience for my group, though easy to learn and fun to play.

A quick review and overview of Flash Point: Fire Rescue.
Flash Point is a cooperative board game; its easy to play and very exciting and we recommend it a lot.
This was our first try at a video review and our hardware and software isn't quite up to it; I apologize that its very rough.

Wow! I'd heard a lot of buzz about this game, but I wasn't sure what to expect. I've owned and played a number of other coop games (Pandemic, Forbidden Island, Arkham Horror, Elder Sign, etc), and I can say with confidence that Flash Point is top notch. The game feels so much more "alive" than Pandemic to me, and is much more engaging than Forbidden Island. Venturing into the burning building really immerses you into the game -- you feel the tension of the burning building around you and never knowing what's going to happen. The danger is palpable, and it feels extremely rewarding to work together as a group to rescue victims from the building.

There are three levels of game play: "Family", "Veteran", and "Heroic".

"Family" offers simplified rules to reduce the housekeeping in the game, and makes the game more accessible, but still keeping all of the theme and cooperation that makes this an excellent family cooperative challenge.

I play with a pretty experienced group of gamers, and even at the "Veteran" level (which is what we decided to start with), I was worried that a coop would be interesting enough for our group. I need not have worried! Our first game was a 5-player game, and we all felt really engaged for the entire game. After we pulled the last victim from the smoking building, we all agreed that it was challenging and a lot of fun! We worked together, but the game doesn't require any one person to direct the action and boss others around. There is so much going on and always so many choices that people are able to operate independently, yet still cooperate. Just an excellent balance. We were able to win at the Veteran level, and I'm looking forward to trying out the Heroic level next!

Flash Point Fire Rescue is a cooperative game where 2-6 players play firefighters who are attempting to rescue victims from a burning house. Players have to balance their actions between fighting the fire and keeping it from going out of control and rescuing victims. Allowing the fire to spread too much and you will lose victims and potentially have the whole building collapse!

There are different levels of complexity in the rules starting with a simple family game to a more challenging experienced level with specific firefighting roles, vehicles, and hazardous materials. There are varying difficulty levels to start a game with which increase the amount of fire in the building and add hazardous materials which explode when fire reaches it.

The victims/false alarms in the game are represented by double-sided counters with a "?" on one side and a silhouette of a person or a blank, representing a false alarm or false detection. So there is a unknown variable and challenge in the game when it comes to locating people to rescue.

For a rules overview, there is good YouTube video which details the family game rules and setup and can be found here;
[...]

The components of this game are very good. Hard mounted double-sided board with two different building layouts. Cardboard counters and wooden cubes (representing damaged wall counters) and firefighters.

Due to the random nature of fire, placement of victims, and the two different building layouts the replay value of this game is very high.

Being a cooperative game, this has the value of teaching young people the value of cooperating with each other and how to coordinate actions and efforts to achieve goals.

We love cooperative board games. We love them because they encourage teamwork to win the game. And when we can't win, we all feel the pain of defeat together.

They're also a great way to get younger kids to enjoy board games because you're not competing against them. You don't have to `take it easy' on them because you're after the same goal.

So is Flash Point a good game?

You bet!

One of the things we really like about Flash Point is the randomness of where the fire heats up. During every player's turn they roll 2 dice to see where the next smoke token is placed using a cool grid system. So you never know what you're going to get. Everything may be going along just great and then all of a sudden, explosions start happening and knocking out walls.

And even though the recommended ages on the game box say 10+, since it's a cooperative game don't hold back introducing it to younger players. Sure younger players may not be able to pick it up and play it on their own from the start. But once they've been introduced to how to play, they may even be fine to tackle it without your help.

Intro:

Flash Point: Fire Rescue (FPFR) is a cooperative game wherein players take the role of a specialized firefighter and attempt to save victims from a burning building before too many are lost to fire or the building collapses. If you've ever played Pandemic, you'll already be familiar with the turn phase and action optimization mechanics found in FPFR.

Gameplay Summary:

There are two modes of play: basic (family) and experienced. The basic version is an easy way to teach players who are new to the game and those who are infrequent board gamers. The experienced mode is not that much more complicated, but there are a lot more options and avenues of attack. I would highly recommend starting with the experienced mode for new players to this game who are veteran players of board games in general. The experienced mode can also be adjusted for difficulty with rookie, veteran, and heroic levels.

Players can choose different firefighting specializations are have them dealt to them randomly. Some of these specializations are Rescue Specialist, Fire Captain, CAFS Firefighter, and Paramedic. Each of them has a special ability which usually grants the player bonus action points or allows them to do things other firefighters cannot. These options allow for increased variability in subsequent playthroughs which improves replayability. The roles can also be swapped out for unused roles using the Crew Change action.

Firefighters are required to bring their victims to the ambulance in order to officially rescue them and the ambulance can be moved around the perimeter of the house using action points. Also, a fire truck is available for firefighters to throw copious amounts of water on areas to contain large groups of fire quickly.
