    AAR #1. For the holiday season I suggested using red, white and green airplanes. So we had a dogfight with two green Sopwith Camels (Baltic Bob & Jim) versus two Austro-Hungarian red & white marked airplanes; a Phonix D.1 for Todd and the Macchi M.5 for myself. Here is the starting position.

    After a couple of rounds, Todd exchanges gun fire with Baltic Bob and starts smoking.

    And I draw the dreaded Boom card. Now it is one on one.

    After a number of curious maneuvers by Todd, we realize he was trying to escape the map. This was his damage at this point.

    However, Jim was in much worse shape, but since he was still on the map, he was the victor.

    AAR #2. We continued our holiday flights with a quasi Snoopy vs the Red Baron. No flying Snoopies but Jim and Baltic Bob with their green Sopwith Camels versus Todd and myself flying red Fokker Dr.Is. Before the game Bob asked Jim to really shuffle the A damage deck to really mix up the cards. I jokingly suggested that Jim put the Boom card near the top of the deck.

    Well, in the very first exchange of gun fire guess what happened to Baltic Bob? Ouch!

    Later Todd succumbs to some serious damage in very few cards.

    After much maneuvering and exchange of gunfire, I was finally able to shoot down Jim. So the second and final dogfight went to the Triple Alliance.
