To add to the ever-growing list of board games that are being digitized in one form or another, Flash Point Fire Rescue will be joining their ranks in 2017.

Published by Indie Boards & Cards, Flash Point Fire Rescue from Kevin Lanzing  is a cooperative game where you take on the role of a firefighter attempting to rescue victims trapped in a building.  Each firefighter gains a special ability to help the team achieve this goal.  You must be quick, for as the fire spreads,  the building starts to weaken.  This could cut off rooms trapping someone in a room filled with fire or hazardous materials which may explode!  7 victims rescued is a win for the team, whereas 4 victims perishing is a loss.

Flash Point Fire Rescue, the digital version, will contain everything that you know and love from the board game.  No setup required…just start up the game and off you go!  The game will launch with 2 maps, lots of victims to rescue, and 8 different firefighters to choose from.  You can play solo, or with friends through online multiplayer.

Many more details are still unknown at this time, so be sure to check back with Dice Tower News for further updates.

Everything Epic Games is returning to Kickstarter to bring you the 2nd printing of their recently released thematic cooperative game Secrets of the Lost Tomb, as well as Fate’s Fortune, the newest expansion for the game.

Secrets of the Lost Tomb is a Cooperative, story-driven tile placement game, that plays in about 60 minutes, for 1-6 adventurers who have embarked upon a perilous expedition to uncover the ancient secrets of the Tomb. Each game is built around a different scenario with its own unique boss monster, such as the Pharaoh with the Blue Eyes, the Immortal Rhaz Azul or the Elder Forces of Hera’Thulhu. Over the course of the game, you and your fellow expedition members will explore ancient sites around the world, from the crypts of the Mayans to the ruins of Greece and the beautiful temples of the Orient; fight monstrous beasts; gather powerful relics and above all prepare yourselves to ward off the inevitable awakening of the Primordial Evil.

The Fate’s Fortune expansion introduces the eponymous Fate cards which will send each character on their own secret quest that will allow them to level up during the game (and will also unleash new furies from within the tomb). Using these secret Fate cards, players can also now choose to include the possibility of a Traitor in the game, rather than playing purely cooperatively. The expansion will also add new characters, new scenarios and new monsters to this already jam-packed game.
