Time: 15-30 Minutes
Fire Tower is a fast-paced, tactical pattern-laying game that takes 15-30 minutes to play. You must protect your lookout tower from a rapidly spreading forest fire. Dispatch smokejumpers and fire engines to combat the blaze and construct firebreaks to fortify your tower.
But there is a twist! In Fire Tower, you also take on the role of nature. Harness the power of the wind to push the blaze towards your opponents and unleash an arsenal of fire cards to take down their towers before they can reach yours.
Prepare for a unique experience, a relentless battle for survival packed with shocking reversals and exhilarating victories. Most games about fire have some cooperative aspect, a team effort to beat back the flames. Fire Tower is a purely competitive game, where players have two objectives: defend themselves, and desperately try to spread the flames towards their opponents. Each player mans a fire tower and uses action cards and spatial planning to protect their fire tower and send the blaze towards their opponents. Every turn the fire spreads in the direction of the wind, and players must skillfully and efficiently manage their cards to avoid going down in flames. Players can harness the power of the wind to push the inferno towards their opponents, clear tracts of land to create a fortress around their towers, hinder the plans of their opponents with torrents of water, and unleash an arsenal of fire cards upon their foes. The choices are numerous; it’s up you to make the right one.
