Wings of War
A participation game for 1-12 players.
WW I Wings of Glory is the re-printed edition of the International Award-Winning Wings of War game of aerial combat in the First World War.
Each player pilots one aircraft, and attempts to survive the savage individual “dogfights” of the Era..
Players will get to fight the dreaded Red Baron in the course of his career, attempt the dangerous task of flying through Anti-aircraft fire to destroy enemy observation balloons using primitive rockets, intercept giant multi-engine bombers, and much more.
One scenario tales place during the Russian Civil War, a historical 5-cornered “deathmatch” where the Reds, Whites, German Freikorps, Lithuanians and Poles all fought against each other in the vicinity of Vilna in 1920. Other scenarios involve teams – Germans vs French and British, Austrians and Germans vs Russians, and so on in historically accurate line-ups. Games cover the entire time period from the first crude attempts at making fighting aircraft, to the sophisticated machines of 1918, forerunners to the modern aircraft of today. There will be one scenario from 1916, one from 1917, and one from 1918 each day, plus others as time permits.
Players can join and leave at any time, making this an ideal “fill-in” game between matches, and good for casual participants too.Suitable for ages 7 and up, it is an ideal game for whole families to play. Rules are simple, and can be picked up in ten minutes or less, just by observing play..
