Flash Point Fire Rescue: Urban Structures, from designer Kevin Lanzing, is an expansion for Flash Point Fire Rescue which adds two new city building boards and a new specialist Firefighter role for players to take on.
The structural engineer can return hot spot markers to the yellow spaces on the side of the board helping to contain the blaze, but they can come back on subsequent turns! They can also repair damaged (not destroyed) walls in an adjacent space. But the Structural engineer cannot extinguish smoke or fires so this could be a role to take on towards the end of the game when the buildings are on the verge of collapse.
The Brownstone game board is a duplex apartment that butts up to the buildings on either side making it difficult to access for fire fighters. Vehicles can still get from one die of the building to the other by expending four action points.
The high rise board is an Urban High Rise Office, access to the building is via a fire service elevator and the engine's ladder, the elevator being a special (and controversial) space on the board that moves between floors; each with their own set of special actions. The high rise also has light walls that can only take one damage maker and reinforced walls that cannot be damaged.
Flash Point Fire Rescue Urban Structures also comes with eight game scenarios to try, including; unmarked Hazards, Murphy's strikes, and a Hotter Spot. Each scenario has a number of changes to the basic rules such as not being able to use the deck gun or change roles.
Flash Point Fire Rescue Urban Structures is a game for anyone who wants to expand their Flash Point Collection with new challenges and new places to fight the fires of Flash Point.
