Flash point fire rescue by Indie Boards and Cards

This was out on the table again last week. It’s cooperative game like Pandemic. No cooperation and the team of players burn horribly.

Flash point fire rescue by indie boards and cards is well-rated on Board Game Geek. When we played this game we liked it. It’s another cooperative game.  Flash Point-fire rescue had lots of flash points for us and our incompetence led to very little rescue.

The scene is a building which has casualties that you have to get out and rescue. The players compete, cooperatively to do this and put out the fire. Unfortunately the fire spreads. We managed to incinerate ourselves twice-oh dear! It is a good game.

Pandemic-the plague will get you unless you work together

This Thursday, at the club,  there was another game of  PANDEMIC. Players don’t compete: they have to cooperate in order to stop the game generated virus wiping out the population of Earth. Often players squabble and are wiped out. A fantastic game that is highly rated. The group managed to win using  the second most difficult game variant. A significant achievement.

Ghost Stories

Boardgamegeek says Ghost Stories is a cooperative game in which the players protect the village from incarnations of the lord of hell – Wu-Feng – and his legions of ghosts before they haunt a town and recover the ashes that will allow him to return to life. Each Player represents a Taoist monk working together with the others to fight off waves of ghosts. Its best played as four-player. It’s hard playing cooperatively as competitiveness and individualism tend to ruin the team effort. The players at the club seemed to like the game this week and Matthew pledges to get Wu-Feng next week. We shall see.

The game has won a host of awards:
