Product Description

The moon shines high above the forests and lakes. Suddenly its soft glow is surpassed by the red light of leaping tongues of flame -- the forest is on fire! In the nearby village the call goes out, telling of the danger and the fright of the conflagration...

The firefighters are assembled quickly. Twelve men follow your orders to fight the fire. Send your people to the large fire sources, but make sure that they maintain access to water.

Who will place his men most skillfully?
Who will stand as a hero at the end the long night?
Who will win, when the fire rages and the call goes out...

Feurio! is a board game in which the players fight a spreading forest fire. Feurio! can be played solo or with up to four players.

The Fire Is Spreading--Oh, My!
February 24, 2004

Feurio catches a gamer off guard. You think it is just a game of placing fires. Instead, you have to ration the firefighters for the best coverage. You think the fire is figured out each turn.

Then, the problems begin. In a two-player game (up to four can play)you place two hex blocks or forest tiles for the first turn and receive two different colors of firefighters. Then, the next hex is placed with a corner that does fit. Your fire can start out in one direction, and, then, suddenly, the forest fire is headed in the next direction. You usually have two or three circles for placing firefighters on the forest tiles. Players with different colors can place on the same hex. Eventually, that placement (e.g. two firefighters)can mean only certain sides of the forest tile are still available. When forest tiles are surrounded, then, new forest tiles cannot be placed next to the old tile.

You soon discover it is better to have your firefighters all connected in one or more directions with the forest tiles. To conserve firefighters, one should not place two firefighters on the same hex with the two circles. You would only consider that maneuver if you insisted on controlling that particular placed hex block. It is important to look for forest tiles that have No. 1 in the center of the tile.

Why is No. 1 so important? At the end of the game, a division of the forest tiles owned occurs for the scoring. The individual with the No. 1 can divide his points by 1 instead of 2-3-4 (e.g. 17 points divided by 1). As the fire spread, both players had to place forest tiles near the 6 and 5 hex blocks. That is because the rules state the hottest fires must have the forest tile attached first (a hot fire could be defined as 6+5 for two forest files). The hot fire is always the highest number of two forest tiles.

I became destroyed by the other player who accumulated 45 points to my 39. The yellow and blue firefighter who had at two divisions of 1. The red and green firefighter (me) had only one division of 1. The key in this game is to place firefighters on as many No. 1 circled forest tiles as possible. When the forest tiles are used and no more firefighters can be placed, the game is over.

The yellow and blue player commented he was not initially impressed with the game. Still, we both agreed the game is different every time it is played. Chance uncertainty definitely occurs in the game with all those burning forest tiles. What was the best feature of the game? Intellectual challenge.
