NOTE: This review consists primarily of images, and thus make take some time to load on slower connections. My apologies.



Flash Point: 2nd Story, Urban Structures & FF Figures Kickstarter page

















Editor's Note: Indie Boards & Cards were kind enough to supply me with a preview pack of the new plastic firefighters, but I paid full retail for the game itself. The Legion is incorruptible!

Stellar job as always Mya!

I love the bucket, and the inclusion of a dog in the pile of rescued victims.

This is easily one of my favorite coop games, and I'm super excited about it going back on Kickstarter.

Top notch work!

I actually have some ancient (20yrs+) firefighter Playmobil figures somewhere around, but that "somewhere" is currently in a box in an attic almost 300 miles away from my current locations, so... the bucket brigade had to suffice!

Terrific work as usual!

But seriously; who doesn't enjoy a good immolation death, at least every once in a while?

Edit: Holy crap! I just realized I actualy have a microbadge of an immolation death! Should I be worried about myself?

I got lost once as a child and do not remember suffering a hideous immolation death. It may be best to avoid euphemisms.

As a house rule we refuse to save the cat.

I'd apologize, but I'm not at all sorry. I'm simply following in the footsteps of all those reviewers whose reviews have made me add more games to my wishlist. It's a vicious cycle.

When playing with my brother, it's a house rule that we automatically lose if we don't save the cat.

If I owned the copy we play with I'd send you the cat. Then we could both be happy. I guess we'll have to let things continue as they are and consider it karma.

Ok confession time. This panel:



made me really sad as it reminded me of the story in my Latin textbook about a dog staying over and trying to protect the body of his master (Caecilius) as he was overcome during the eruption of Vesuvius.

I was laughing before I even read any text as I quickly scrolled down to look at the pictures. The pile of rescued victims and the building collapse are awesome.

So much creativity in this one. The smoke, the water, the hole in the wall (whatever do you have a hole in the wall for?)... Great job! Thanks for doing these.

Thanks, everyone. Putting these reviews together can be quite fun (quite apart from the joy derived from actually playing the games involved), and I'm glad people enjoy them.

That I do not know. I'm temporarily in a rented apartment over the summer and it came with a hole in the wall, so I thought I might as well make the most of it.

Not to ruin the illusion, but in case anyone's interested, the water is half of a blue Post-It note and the smoke is (unsurprisingly) shredded tissue paper. The Legion's special effects team spares no expense!

Smart man! If people think cats are evil when they are alive, imagine how bad their ghosts would be if you didn't save them from a fire!

Yes! Well-spotted! I've used Buckyballs in almost all my reviews. They make excellent card stands and are good at propping up all manner of game bits.
