By now from my previous posts I'm sure you all know that Wings of War has become a favorite and it is a game I really want to play again as quickly as possible, with as many people as possible, this particular project is a little different from the others in that you can buy the miniatures already painted and assembled, this is a major bonus for obvious reasons right? the only thing that you need to add, is some terrain (I have taken care of this) and as many human players as you can find, outside of that you are good to go .
The fun factor in this game is huge, gun jams, mid air collisions, exploding planes, near misses, teamplay, and a real simple easy to learn game mechanic, what else could you ask for? more depth ? ... maybe, but we did only play a simple version of the game (no altitude rules) I included a quick description straight from the rule set of how this game plays:
"Wings of War is a game series which merges card and board game mechanics to recreate aerial combat. The first series of Wings of War games focus on the "knights of the air" age, World War I, portraying the abilities of the fighting planes of this period, Wings of War uses an innovative card-based movement mechanic. By selecting from his maneuver deck, each player can plot out the loops, rolls, and twists that his dogfighting plane will undertake. Each plane has a specific maneuver deck with its own unique options, so you'll fly differently from game to game. Outwit and outmaneuver your opponent, and you will reap the rewards !"
There is also a huge variety of aerial machines to choose from, anything from a large range of fighter Biplanes, Triplanes, Two seaters, Bombers, Observation planes, Observation balloons there is even provision to pit your fighters against enemy Zepplins ! this game has so much potential, the scenarios that could be created really get the creative juices flowing, if you haven't played this game before, at least try playing one game before you give it away.
