Ablaze

Ablaze Maker:  Mayfair Games Players: 1-4 Ages: 10+Playing Time: 45 min Designer: Heinrich Glumpler Art: Franz Vohwinkel The forest is ablaze, the smoke is thick, and the flames are spreading! The only inhabitants of this inferno seem to be a few courageous firefighters, their supporting planes, and a horde of fleeing animals. Ablaze consists of three complete, distinct games. Each game revolves around a forest fire, but each is different and has its own unique favor. In Wild Fire!, you lead a crew of firefighters who are attempting to contain a rapidly spreading wildfire. To emerge victorious, you and your crew must cover the largest area of forest while always maintaining a link to water.In Volcano!, you pilot an air tanker struggling to help extinguish a conflagration initiated by an erupting volcano. Extinguish or isolate the most forest fires and you earn honor and victory!In On the Run!, a lighting strike has started an intense brushfire, forcing fluffy forest fauna to flee the inferno in an effort to escape a fiery demise. You shall decide the fate of some of the frantic forest fauna. Saving the most animals will win you the game. Ablaze™ Contents:48 pawns (firefighters) in four colors47 forest tiles 1 volcano tile1 plane tiles 1 set of rules   

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
