I finally got to try Flash Point with Marc at work. Instant buy. Excellent cooperative game about firefighting. The big innovation is that, while it has different player roles like Pandemic, in Flash Point you can change them mid game - for a cost in time. This made for a ton of interesting decisions. Meanwhile every turn the fires keeps trying to get out of control. Very fun.
It’s our first play of the DC Comics Deck Building game. This is about as stripped down as it gets. The cards-in-a-line mechanic from Ascension but only one resource. But it was really quite fun. The main wrinkle is the Supervillan stack that acts as the game clock. It plays very fast and there were some very wild combos for big turns. Cory did fine and in fact scored a few more points than me but we were both way behind Cas.
