Fireside Games to release Hotshots in May
January 14, 2017 - 5:21pm
Fireside Games and Justin De Witt, the publisher and designer behind the Castle Panic game, are designing a new game all about fighting forest fires called Hotshots. Hotshots is going to be a push your luck style game where you will take on different roles in the effort to fight a raging forest fire. Roles like the Crew Boss, Swamper, Sawyer, and Spotter will each have unique abilities as well as home tiles, and you will lose those abilities if you home tile gets destroyed. On your turn you will roll dice to try and fight the fire on the tile you move to, manage to match enough symbols and you will beat back the fire, don't match enough and the fire will spread instead. Then at the end of your turn you will draw a fire card which indicates how the fire spreads and if there are gusts of wind that blow around the embers. Manage to put out the fire and everyone wins! Look for this game on store shelves at the end of May.
