Fireworks product reviews

A group of cats has been training very hard to master their profession shooting off the biggest and best fireworks in the world! Although they are still rookies, they hope to become experts someday. Which cat can put on the most explosive fireworks display?

The goal is to collect Fireworks Tiles and arrange them on your City Board to create stunning displays. On your turn, you launch the Fireworks Die out of the barrel and into the box. You then take some face-up Fireworks Tiles from the box and place them on your city board. The game end is triggered when a player fills up their entire City Board. Whoever has the most valuable fireworks display wins!

This game was grabbed off the discounted table of a lovely little board game shop I like to visit, I had never heard of the game but my youngest two thought the cat on the cover of the box was adorable and I thought it sounded interesting, so I took the leap. I must admit that I find the scoring a little confusing at the moment, but the more I play it, the better I get at working out the scores you get, based upon what firework display you create on your card. Whilst the initial scoring can be a bit confusing, the good thing is that you can keep referring to your little score card and rearrange your firework tiles each time you collect a new tile, this is especially handy for the younger players.

What I really like about this game is that all the tiles go in the box, face down, so it is a sea of black. You then drop the dice on top of them (don't go too low or none will flip, too high and some may flip out of the box and then you can't use them that turn). What this dropping causes is a lovely affect of the tiles flying up and hopefully flipping over, giving a burst of colour (much like fireworks) which is rather delightful and quite different to most of the games on our shelf. The game ends when someone fills up all the spaces on their board, then you can flip the bottom of the box over for a scoring route, I personally, find this too small spacing wise and so don't use it.

This ended up being a good score, it's fun and different, just make the pictures accompanying the rules a little clearer and I would be happier.
