    Default Triplanes vs. Monsters

    The King Kong Figure in an Other threat reminded me of the monsterpocalypse Figures...

    ....guess what a unexspected surprise this was for Manfred on his patrol:

    My grandkids and I enjoy the WGF King Kong rules, now we need someone to develop some WGS rules for Gojira (Godzilla). I realize Godzilla was from 1954, but I want to use my WWII WoG planes to battle him. Is anyone who is familiar with Godzilla's many fighting moves, and special abilities up to creating some workable rules?

    I have made 3 special Godzilla damage decks. 1 for breath, 1 for claw and 1 for tail. Special damage includes immediate altitude change, change of facing, getting thrown/batted 2-4 rulers away in a random direction...lots of damage if its claw or tail.

    Yep, that's what I'm talking about. Have you put any of your rules in writing yet?

    I have not posted anything in the files yet. All my components are in storage at the moment. I should have the files on my laptop. There are a few files to cover it all. 3 damage decks, front and back, 3 range rulers, a Godzilla damage management page and rules.

    I should have the files on my laptop. I'll get them organized and posted. With all that I have going on this may take a while.

    Seeing this reminds me of Matt's Cthulhu "The Dunkerque Horror" game at Origins in 2018, in happier times. RIP buddy.

    All of these creative ideas have me searching through the Aerodrome files again, and hunting down different gaming threads. Thanks Dave for sharing the links to Matt's (R.I.P.) "The Dunkerque Horror" game. I located and downloaded Matt's rules for it. Does anyone know where I could find a file for the cards that Matt had created?

    Paul, I have some of the same Godzilla figures!!! Awesome! Neca has some new ones out. About 8 inches tall I think. I saw them at Target here in Ohio. They are advertised as 12 inches head to tail.

    Here is a link to their website. I love the Godzilla vs King Kong Figure!!!

    I have one in my collection (courtesy of a trade with Zoe Brain) but it is way too large to use on the gaming table.

    I finished the cards for the Cthulhu madness and pilot sanity decks, but I am unable to upload the sheets to the files area. I'll try again tomorrow. But I can show you the design I made for the backs of the cards.

    They are sold out at all of my local Target stores. Will have to find them online. I might be able to squeeze one more on my shelf. It's nice to see that Godzilla and crew are still finding newer fans.

    Something I did up years ago, to advertise WoG WWI games at conventions. I got the image from this Forum, but don't recall the source, sorry. For younger players, this 'oversized' model attracts the eyes to the table. It works to get attention, if not always new, and suitably mature pilots.

    That's so cool looking Mike. Definitely an attention getter. I already have the Snoopy card downloaded. Been watching the Snoopy figures on eBay. I know I've gotta fly Snoopy at least once. I'll probably wait until the grandkids come over to play. After we choose up sides, and they have chosen their planes, I'll bring him out to fly. I know they'll get a kick out of it.

    If you want a Snoopy that is slightly more in scale you could try and track down this Hotwheels version:

    All you need to do is drill out the rivet on the underside that holds the kennel onto the chassis and glue a peg onto the bottom.

    These are great. Much better than mine. I just used the same backs as I did for my dragon game as I didn't have the time to make new ones last minute right before a convention.

    Go right ahead. I would like to know your specific damage cards so I could make the fronts.

    I need to get another one and cut him in half so he can be wading in the ocean. A little bit easier a target as his tail will be out of action. Once he's out of the ocean an running a-muck in Tokyo, look out!

    A d6 and d12 are used for my rules with Godzilla.

    Godzilla's Bad breath..

    Arc and damage, Primary target gets the worst one damage card of X cards pulled, secondary planes get whatever one damage card is drawn.
    Example, 2 planes are in the breath arc, one at close range and the other at medium range. For the close range plane draw 3 damage cards and inflict the highest #, special damage Godzilla's choice. The plane at medium range draws one damage card and keeps it.

    Claws and tail are similar. Godzilla can only attack with one claw per turn on one plane. The tail can hit as many as are in it's arc.
    If the Claw attack has the note Grab and Toss, the plane is grabbed and flung in a random direction, 1 - 6 o'clock for right claw, 7- 12 o'clock for left claw. The plane will travel from 3-5 aircraft firing measurement sticks away, ending in a random facing, 1 - 12 o'clock. Apply any special damage after new location and facing is determined.
