Based on No Thanks! by AMIGO Games, Flash or Blast is a party game in which you are presented with a challenging goal: Keep your points as low as possible without running out of ammo.
The game is played with a ball in the center of the room containing a set amount of points and ammo. On your turn, you must either throw your grenade to collect contents of the ball, or shoot your gun to pass your turn. Every time a player shoots, 1 ammo is added to the ball. At the end of the game, your ammo count is subtracted from your score.
As an added twist: If you collect balls with a sequence of points (for example, a 12 and a 13), only the lowest of those numbers are counted towards your score.
The point total on each ball ranges between 3-35 with no repeats, and there are 24 total rounds (a new round starts after a player throws their grenade to collect the ball). This means that not every number between 3 and 35 is guaranteed to show up in the game.
You can place your crosshair on other players to check their collection of points (but not their ammo!).
The host can determine a number of AI bots to add to the game before the game starts. If a player leaves mid-game they will be automatically replaced by a bot. If a player joins mid-game and there is a bot playing, the player will replace the bot. A combination of at least 3 players and bots is required to start a game.
