Board Stiff with Flash Point: Fire Rescue

I'm on fire in this week's Board Stiff with a look at one heated game for  summer, Flash Point: Fire Rescue!
The game starts out easily enough, I’ll grant you that. Assumedly someone’s called 911 about a fire in some residence on some street. You and your crew of skilled firefighters arrive, quickly assess the situation, and get to work saving everyone and everything you can. For the quick-start, “family” version of the game, the fire’s started in the middle of the structure – supposedly in the oven or on the stove: A fun lesson of why you shouldn’t let your six year old cook.
