Play in a flash! Speed through the city!
Line up your electrons to get the current flowing and frustrate your opponents in the process. To win, reproduce the configurations as fast as you can. That’s all!
What’s in the box?
- Four player tablets
- 32 electron tokens
- 52 game cards
- Three high score cards
How to play:
When everyone is ready, give the start signal. All players play at the same time and as quickly as possible, there are no game turns. Each player moves the electrons on their tablet to try to reproduce any of the configurations shown on the cards in the middle of the table.
Electrons are moved one at a time by sliding them with a finger into a “free” space on the player’s tablet. When a player perfectly reproduces any one of the combinations shown in the middle, they say, loudly, “FLASH”. They first confirm with the other players that they’ve correctly reproduced the configuration of one of the cards.
The player then takes the card and places it next to them, revealing the next card in the stack. Play resumes immediately.
The game ends when there are no cards left in the middle of the table. Each player tallies their points by counting the cards they have collected. Each card is worth 1 point, except for those marked with 2 stars, which are worth 2 points. The player with the highest total wins.
Flash 8 is the modernised version of a well-known classic; the question is not if you can do it, it’s how fast! Because the game plays non-stop through to the end, Flash 8 is one of the most dynamic games ever!
