Flash 8 is a fast-paced sliding-tile game where 1-4 players race to move their colourful electron tokens around their city board (their 'tablet') to re-create combinations and score points, all in real time.
The competitive version (2-4 players) has players racing against one another to be the first to claim the cards in the centre of the table by sliding their multicoloured electron tokens into the empty space in their city grid tablet in an attempt to re-create the colour combinations on the cards. Every time a combination is completed, the successful player yells "Flash!" and they collect that card while the game keeps going. The game ends when all cards are claimed, and the player with the most cards wins!
The solo version of Flash 8 asks you to re-create, using the same sliding-tile mechanism, any combination shown on the grid of electrons laid out in front of you. Be careful, though, because every success comes with a price: every time you complete a combination, the grid changes, and if you don't manage your cards correctly, you could end up stuck!
