The world of Fire Tower is expanding! In 2019, we brought Fire Tower to life with the support of an amazing community of nearly 1700 backers. Now, we are back on Kickstarter for a second printing and to introduce the Rising Flames Expansion to add to the core game.
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.
In the Rising Flames Expansion, rapid crown fires, heavy winds, and tumultuous weather threaten the forest. Defend your tower with a powerful new deck and a flock of legendary firehawks. Beware the growing influence of the Shadow of the Wood, as destroyed towers now have a host of new abilities to claim a surprise victory. The Rising Flames Expansion adds solo and fifth player mode, along with new variants of play and a flock of custom meeples.
Here is a link to the full rulebook. For translations to French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, and Hungarian, click here. Watch a playthrough of the base game with four players or two players.
Now that you have the basics, let’s learn about this expansion!
Rising Flames adds several new concepts to the base game, which is why we’ve broken it into two parts: the Core Expansion, and Extreme Weather. Both parts come in every copy of Rising Flames. We recommend you play the Core Expansion first, then add Extreme Weather when you’re ready. Check out the two How To Play videos (in stop motion!) below.
Please Note: The base game of Fire Tower is required to use this expansion.
