Our first attempt on any board at the heroic difficulty went down last night. We started off pretty well by managing to remove some of the major initial explosions, mostly with the help of the driver/operator using the deck gun. The middle was quiet as we were keeping the fire at bay for the most part, while getting the victims out the building. We'd managed to avoid hitting too many hotspots, which we knew would begin to happen eventually. I kept looking at the large stack of hotspots with a feeling of dredd and excitement for what was about to happen. Sure enough it hit the fan about 3/4 of the way through the game. We began hitting hotspot after hotspot causing multiple explosions. We tried to get in under control but the opportunity to win this one had long gone and we were eventually overrun, beaten essentially by the building collasping. We got 5 vitims out, with 1 casualty. The firefighters took a few knockdowns too as the fire spread rapdily towards the end. Really enjoyed getting beat by the game. Took a picture at the end of game to capture the team's work. Unfortunately one of the apartments is not so inhabitable right now, but the other one is not too shabby at all.
