    Default Old-school dogfighting on Kickstarter

    Came across this today on KS - Age of Dogfights WW1. Reminiscent of Richthofens War, Blue Max etc with a modern twist.

    Might be worth a look, I'm interested in the fact they intend to continue this through WW2 to the jet age.

    Looks interesting Steve but I think that if I had the game it might be quicker and easier to set up than a WOG MINIATURES GAME and I have too much WOG stuff to consider making it redundant.

    Thanks for the heads up Steve, looks to be an interesting project, I will have a think on it... hmm, what's that burning...?

    Looks good but have to stay with WoG. Have Richthofens war but haven't played it in years.

    "Saved" to my Kickstarter.
    Which likely means "Pledged" in the next few days ...

    It has some interesting concepts - thanks (I think) for posting.

    Thank you for telling us about this game, Steve. It appears that there will be pieces representing a number of planes, which we do not have in Wings of Glory.

    Given that it is counter-based I am intrigued by the way they are handling altitude. But as Reg said - too much tied up in WoG to get too excited about it.

    Steve, Steve, Steve! After adding a Staaken, Handley Page RNAS, and Tripods and Triplanes to my collection, I almost had my gaming credit card paid down to a manageable amount. That elusive Zero balance was within sight. And like Pete, this game is now saved to my Kickstarter account. Now just waiting for the right time to have a heart-to-heart with my credit card. I know that like Pete, I too will become a pledgling in a few days. But thanks Steve for the heads up on this new game. I use my WoG minis in other games, so hopefully I can incorporate them into this new game too.

    100!s of tiny pieces, Dice, obscure planes like the Sablatnig N.1! What is not to like

    Actually the pledge is not that much if anyone is really interested. You do not have to paint anything either.

    Really? How many of the supporters on this Forum aren't thinking of how they'll adapt minis to this new game?

    The real question is, can I get it into the house without the wife knowing I bought another war game?

    Well if you are anything like me you can just hide it amongst all the other games you bought but never play.

    That's the decision point for me Gary, rather spend the money on WoG as I will play that with the gaming time available.

    Mike, LOL! That is pretty good.

    The game looks neat, but I think I will stick with Wings of Glory. Also, DVG has Sopwith Leader, Fokker Leader, and Zero Leader in the pipes. I am a bit more interested in those. Compass has Western Front Ace on the slate for later this year and that looks pretty awesome.

    There was a question about miniatures in the FAQ's.


    Will there be an upgrade/expansion/stretch goal for miniatures?

    Short answer: No

    Some of our previous projects contained miniature tanks that proved to be very complicated and expensive to manufacture. The miniatures of the planes are even more demanding due to the thin parts (wings and tail surface), which would further complicate the production and significantly raise the price. Also, it would be very difficult (and expensive) to make a variant which would allow the miniatures to be standing at the same point on the board, but at different heights.

    Even if we solved all the technical problems with miniatures at an affordable price, the main criterion for evaluating this game would become the miniatures, and its best feature - the original and fluent gameplay would be in the background.

    I wonder if they know about these Litko stands. However, the Litko stands do not tilt.
