Thread: Explosion!!

    Default Explosion!!

    Hi all,

    There seems to be a rules mismatch between Wings of Glory and Tripods & Triplanes with regards to the explosion rule.

    It seems that in WOG the explosion is instant death but in T&T it is half your health rounded up.

    Is the T&T ruling the latest rule that we should allow follow?

    Depending on your tastes, you can choose to house-rule anything.

    There are several discussions about the Boom Card on this Forum. Andrea, the game designer, may have decided to soften the results of the single hit elimination in T&T.

    The games are technically separate, and you can choose to use which rule you'd like.

    PS: Against Giants (large planes with more than one engine, and more that 20 damage resistance), I used to cap the Boom Card at 18 damage. This meant the Giant wouldn't fall out of the sky on the first hit.

    No, T&T is a separate game William, probably set so you can't kill a Tripod with one shot when it has little or no damage.
    There is a 'no explosion' optional rule in WoG where the explosion doesn't eliminate the aircraft but inflicts damage equal to half it's original damage allowance (rounded up) in the rules for both the Zeppelin Staaken & HP O/400. I believe they are intended for use with the Giants for the same reason.
    It doesn't say you can't use them for all aircraft but specifies they are not for Balloons or ground units.
