dmNorthTV and Guests play board games!! Saturday nights, we get together with friends and try and play a stream friendly board game. It is usually a fun get together with great people. A time to enjoy to social aspect of gaming that we are lacking right now.
Here, you will find our short and sweet review on the board game we have played from each of the players. We stream the gameplay on the dmNorthTV Twitch channel every other Saturday. Come hangout and say “Hi” of you get a chance.
This week, we played through Flash Point: Fire Rescue. Flash Point is a co-operative fire fighting game by Indie Boards & Cards. Your crew of fire fighters are called to… well, a fire. Your job is to work together to put it out and save all of the people (and pets) from the danger. You win together or lose together. Choose your roles carefully and plan your attacks to put out the fires and save the day.
This week, we were joined by comicsmike, RonathanPxPx, and everydayerika to see if we can work together to save this house. You can take a look at our gameplay video on our YouTube channel, or scroll on down to see what we thought of the game.
Final Thoughts About . . . Flash Point: Fire Rescue
Here, we will give you some basic thoughts about the game we played. This is by no means meant to be an in-depth review of the game, as there are already lots of those out there. This is just a “what did we think of it and would it be a good board game night game” type thing. If you want to see something more in-depth, please let us know in the comments below.
- 5 Meeples: Fantastic Game, A must-play game!
- 4 Meeples: Great Game, minor flaws.
- 3 Meeples: Good Game, some weaknesses.
- 2 Meeples: OK Game, needs work.
- 1 Meeple: Awful Game. Do not play this unless you want to punish yourself.
I LOVE co-op games. The sign of a good one is that you want to come back to it, even when you lose. This is by far the family favourite in the jourdo house. We have played it multiple times and loved every minute of it. You may think that things are under control, but the situation can change in a split second and all of a sudden you are in trouble. The variety of roles you can play keep things interesting. If I could give this one 6 meeples, I would. It is that good for me.
Co-op games are always fun. This game definitely puts the “working together” in play. You need to understand each players ability and use that for your action plan. We played on experienced veteran mode and it was intense. I think our Captain just lazed in the fire truck, no wonder *spoiler* lol watch to see 😉
I like co-op games. This game is a great theme that you can feel while you try to save all the people from the burning building. People just need to listen to their Captain a bit more.
A pandemic style cooperative game that replaces the infection card deck with random dice rolling. The different roles that you can play provide interesting group strategy choices. What is great is that unlike most games you can change your role in the game (for a cost) and not be stuck with a role that may lead to a negative play experience.
I think it’s fun and allows for all types of players! I love the co-op games in general but this is definitely one of my favorites!
