    Default Holtzem Pfalz D.IIIa Reprint: No Ace Card(s)

    Hey guys,
    Just got my Series 4 reprints and notice that Holtzem dosent have an Ace Card, instead its got a load of crew skill cards. Is this intentional or a packing error?

    I have the same, no ace card, just 8 crew skill cards.

    Strange they wouldnt have an Ace Card set for him (if its intentional). Not particularly annoyed because i dont really use them.

    Same here. I'll give out ace/crew skills when running games but haven't used the Ace Cards as of yet.

    Actual series 1 reprints (Fokker Dr.1,etc.) don‘t have ace cards.

    Ares wrote, that some of the Se5a‘s habe one, but I don‘t know if they equip them all with those.

    All 3 SE5(a)s have ace/skill cards. I haven't opened them up yet so don't know how different each plane's sets are.

    In the articles on aresgames for the release of the reprinted planes are all special cards listed, except the Rumpler, if I remember correctly.

    Holtzem: The special cards for this model cover a wide range of possible pilot skills, both good and bad. They include “Lucky pilot” and “Intuitive,” as well as “Itchy trigger finger” and extra abilities at escaping from trouble and avoiding gun jams.

    It seems there is a mistake with the cards. My Holtzem should arrive next week. I'm curious if there are also the wrong cards included.

    It's mostly because he wasn't an ace Dan ! So no mistake. Appears he was a talented pilot though.

    Aren't "Lucky pilot”, “Intuitive” and “Itchy trigger finger” ace cards?

    Yes, they are.................but if the pilot doesn't have 5 or more confirmed "kills", then, by definition, he's not an 'Ace'.

    So there's definitely a mistake with the holtzem cards, as there shouldn't be crew cards included, but the ace cards mentioned in the aresgames article.

    Could be the ace skills, too.
