Okay so as some of you may know, I am a big fan of card and board games so I thought that I would start reviewing some games here on my blog for fun.
The first game that I am going to review is Hotshots the Cooperative Wildfire Fighting Game. My husband and I played it for the first time a couple weeks ago at Ettin Games here in Albuquerque and really liked it. We originally played it to see if it would be a good gift for my brother, not thinking that it would necessarily be our cup of tea since we usually like more fantasy based games. However Hotshots surprised us. While it is a very easy game to learn and set up, it offers enough custom-ability to suite your playing level and for replay-ability. It is a cooperative game for 1-4 players. Basically you are a group of hotshots trying to stop a forest fire before it scorches too many tiles. You can set up the tiles any way that you like, which can make the game harder or easier. This is a game that relies on some strategy based on what characters you play and what you choose to do throughout the game, but also on chance as the roll of the dice determines a lot. It's a pretty quick game and was quite fun to play. Over all I really enjoy it and am thinking about getting it for myself and not just my brother. 4/5 stars! Locals in Albuquerque can pick a copy up at Ettin Games, or the link is below for those who live elsewhere.
