Fire Tower: Rising Flames Expansion Up On Kickstarter

Fire in the disco! Fire in the disco! Fire in the Taco Bell!

Fire in the disco! Fire in the disco! Fire in the gates of Hell!

Ok, so these fires aren't in the disco or the Taco Bell, they're out in the woods, and you're going to be looking for them in Fire Tower, which is getting itself a reprint. It's also getting a new expansion, Rising Flames. Both of these are up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

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.

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 a solo mode along with new variants of play and a flock of custom meeples.

The campaign's making its way to 10x funded with 28 days left to go.
