This is a pretty good cooperative board game, with a theme that I have not seen in any other board game that I know of. One part of the game that really brought the theme out was the fact that in the advance game, new elements like combustible material, and that fire could spread anywhere randomly much like what it would be in real life. There is some nice artwork in the game, and the layout is quite easily understood. The board is also double sided so there are two different layouts. The rules are quite simple, across all difficulties. It, also provides a good challenge, and is a great family game. Worth the buy.
