Forest Fire! with folding mat board

A collaborative game of forest fires and firefighting

Forest Fire! was inspired by a little boy who loves fighting fires. The game is set in a densely wooded yet populated area where forest fires often occur. Players work together to put them out and save houses and schools.

Players use several fire fighting approaches – bulldozers, water, helicopters and chemical extinguishers.

As the game progresses, environmental factors like wind and drought change, affecting the frequency, intensity, and spreading speed of fires.

Minimum age is listed as 12 (the only choice) but I built this game for and play it with my 5 year old grandson.

Game includes:

  • 1 board: a 20x20 grid of hexagons (referred to as ‘acres’)
  • 20 wood houses
  • 2 schools
  • 52 river tokens
  • 40 fire pieces (red crystals)
  • 70 burnt acre pieces (black disks)
  • 30 rock pieces (white crystals)
  • 28 water barrel tokens
  • 14 dry powder explosive fire extinguisher ball tokens
  • 2 bulldozer tokens (3 extras included)
  • 1 helicopter token (2 extras included)
  • 60 event cards (12 FOREST FIRE cards, 40 WEATHER cards, 2 CATASTROPHE cards, 3 DROUGHT cards, 3 LUCKY BREAK cards)
  • 2 20-sided dice: row and column
  • 1 6-sided die
