It's a co-operative game (very useful to avoid squabbling and disappointment.)
Players can discuss moves (which speeds things up.)
I would recommend Flash Point as well. It's another co-op. It has basic and advanced rules so you can adjust the difficulty. And even young kids can grasp the theme; the players are a team of firefighters who are trying to rescue the occupants of a burning house before the fire spreads too far.
