Special Gaming Event: Flash Point: Fire Rescue Experienced Game

The call comes in… “911, what is your emergency?” On the other end is a panicked response of “FIRE!” Moments later you don the protective suits that will keep you alive, gather your equipment and rush to the scene of a blazing inferno. The team has only seconds to assess the situation and devise a plan of attack – then you spring into action like the trained professionals that you are. You must face your fears, never give up, and above all else work as a team because the fire is raging, the building is threatening to collapse, and lives are in danger.

You must succeed. You are the brave men and women of fire rescue; people are depending on you. This is what you do every day.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a cooperative game of fire rescue.

There are two versions of game play in Flash Point, a basic game and expert game.
In both variants, players are attempting to rescue 7 of 10 victims from a raging building fire.

As the players attempt to rescue the victims, the fire spreads to other parts of the building, causing structural damage and possibly blocking off pathways through the building. Each turn a player may spend action points to try to extinguish fires, move through the building, move victims out of the building or perform various special actions such as moving emergency vehicles. If 4 victims perish in the blaze or the building collapses from taking too much structural damage, the players lose. Otherwise, the players win instantly when they rescue a 7th victim.

The expert variant included in the game adds thematic elements such as flash over, combustible materials, random setup, and variations on game difficulty from novice to heroic.

Special Gaming Event: Eminent Domain

Survey the galaxy to expand your civilization – will you colonize nearby planets, or take them over by force? Harvest resources for trade, and do research to improve your technology. Build the best civilization and win the game!

Eminent Domain is a civilization-building game in which your civilization’s abilities are based on a deck of Role cards. At the beginning of the game each player has the same deck of cards, with just two cards for each Role in it. Every turn you must choose a Role to execute (and like Glory to Romeor Puerto Rico, your opponents will get a chance to follow suit), and in doing so you will add one of those Role cards to your deck. When executing a Role, you can boost its effect by playing cards out of your hand matching the Role you have chosen. For example, the more you Research, the better you get at Researching (because you’ll have more Research cards in your deck).

Special Gaming Event: Isle of Monsters

On the Island of Nowhere Atoll, terrifying (but utterly harmless) beasts reside. Can you wrangle the best sets of monsters, nurture them by collecting their favorite foods, and present the most horrifying group of monsters ever seen on the Island? Do so and you may just be named the new Island Protector…

In Isle of Monsters, a set collection, resource-gathering family game, 2-5 players take the role of monster wranglers attempting to gather the scariest team of monsters they can find in order to compete in the local Scare Faire. Getting screams from the audience gets you acclaim, as does scaring the monsters owned by other players.

Each round, players claim monsters and attempt to feed them their favorite foods to get the beasts ready for the Scare Faire. Each monster that’s fully fed by the end of a round goes into that player’s hand and participates in the Scare Faire.

Once every player is finished claiming and feeding monsters, a Scare Faire is held. Each player chooses a single color of monster to play from their hand along with as many cards of that color as they wish. Once every player has chosen, the played cards are revealed simultaneously and the player with the highest scare total from their monsters gets three scream points. Players can also get bonus points for scaring other players’ monsters or from having more monsters in hand than any other player.

Play continues until there are no more monsters available to replenish the monster decks on the island. The player with the most scream points is declared the victor and Island Protector!

Special Gaming Event: Voodoo

Ancient sorcery, dark omens and endless curses — you will become one of the adepts of the dark magic of the Egyptians or a follower of the ancient art of the Badly Dead Druids or an arcane sorcerer of Vudù rituals! Prepare yourselves for the biggest dispute of black magic ever. The Vudù tournament has just begun!

In Vudù, the players act as the most wicked and malicious sorcerers of all time, and they want to use their curses and black magic to make the lives of their enemies impossible to prevail over them! Each turn, you roll five dice, collect your ingredients, then choose whether to take new cards, take new items, or cast a spell. Each spell has a powerful and tricky curse attached to it that forces your target to play in a specific way, for example, talking with his tongue out for the rest of the game, or using only a single hand, or running around the table each turn. Each curse grants you points when you cast it and many more points if your target forgets to obey it or becomes too exhausted to continue. Collect as many malediction points as you can to reach the final tile of the scoreboard before anyone else!
