    Default 303 The boardgame

    Sorry if it has been announced yet, but if not and you have some spare funds the project may be worth supporting (I have just supported it).

    There have been a couple of posts about this - I was surprised that you had not commented.

    I signed up, but it seems to be struggling to meet its target.

    I looked at this but will give it a pass. I have Decision Games RAF and haven't played it. I'm hoping it will be a great vehicle for a Wings campaign. On the some day list of games to get to!

    I'm locked in the Northern Atlantic with UBoot The Board Game...

    I don't have a smart phone so I've been putting together a non app version incorporating the other North Atlantic game U-Boat Leader.

    More games than time (a nice problem to have if I may)...

    I have had this since May and so far all I have done is check that all the components were there.

    Too right!

    I haven't put a lick of paint on a plane since June!

    Whilst tidying/rearranging/restacking stuff, trying to find my "Full Thrust" miniatures, I discovered more toys and games I haven't started on yet!

    Need more free time, less (or no) work!

    Indeed, 11 days to go, and only about 33k of 70k needed. I know a lot of Kickstarters bring in their big money on the first and last few days, but its not looking good here.

    Yep I was tempted to KS it but what can it offer that WG2 doesn't? minis . Got them. Solo possibility, got that . Scenarios , read any decent book on BoB and you can come up with something . Not for me this time ::

    Unfortunately retirement doesn't necessarily equate to more painting time, especially if you are married

    Thanks for the encouragement, Gents.

    I am sure SWMBO will have other plans as well.

    I knew it was close.
    There was less than $1000 to go when I checked on it around 3:00am my time.
    They extras they added definitely gave it the push it needed.
    Cost me 50% more than my original pledge, but well worth it I think.

    I wasn't sure it was going make it but the last push took it over the top. Not sure yet if I'll dive in on this. If I was sure you could play solo that would help.

    It mentions 1-4 players in the 'blurb', Peter. I like games with solo options.

    So do I.
    I also like the co-op aspect of this one to play with grandsons.

    All stretch goals met.

    They have added Stukas, Do17 and Ju88

    It was very close at the end.
    Watching it tick down reminded me of an eBay auction ...

    And here I was, thinking maybe it wasn't going to get funded at all. Happy to have been proven wrong.
