Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a cooperative game where 1-6 players take on the role of brave men and women who rescue victims from fires as firefighters.
The Tragic Events expansion adds Fire & Event decks which are designed to replace the Hot Spot mechanism in the Experienced game rules. At the beginning of the game, a Fire deck is created with Fire Rage and Accelerate cards, along with a pool of Flare Up cards which are set by the board. During each Advance Fire phase, a Fire card is drawn, then resolved. Flare Up cards are added to the Fire deck when the Accelerate card is drawn and causes an Event to occur. Flare Up cards also trigger Events, and add more Flare Up cards to the deck, which force players to draw more Fire cards.
New points of Interest tokens and three new specialists (the Strategist, the Suppression Specialist, and Fire Prevention Specialist) are also added as playable characters in this expansion.
