    Turn 8, Phase 1:
    Was für Idioten sind alle diese Engländer? Sie sind total verrückt, jeder einzelne!
    Gangleader147’s firing pass at Marechallannes turn into another ramming attempt. Hedeby dives, putting him out of reach of the Gotha’s gunenrs. Elsewhere, Teaticket’s bombardier continues to pur fire into Crash A Lot, resulting in yet another fire counter to the helpless latter. Baz remains tantalizing just our of range, while Flash turns away in an unsuccessful attempt to escape from Camelbeagle’s punishment. Malachi also dives, nearly giving his rear gunner a shot.

    Turn 8, Phase 2:
    It continues to be a turn of almosts. Marechallanes almost doges Gangleader147’s fire, but the two exchange shot anyway; Teaticket almost escapes Baz; Crash A Lot almost falls victim to Teaticket’s bombardier, but manages to escape; the bombardier, seeing the flaming plane falling away, holds his fire. Camelbeagle almost faces shots from both Flash’s bombardier and gunner/observer, but is just out of arc of the former. Sauerkraut almost escapes, but is forced to exchange shots with Malachis’s rear gunner.

    Turn 8, Phase 3:
    Gangleader147 makes another ramming attempt against Marechallannes, and almost succeeds. Hedeby and Camel Crew are still out of range. Stumptonian climbs to get back in the action, but is sill far behind. Malachi, perhaps misreading his fuel gauge, makes his escape, while Sauerkraut dives, and the AA shell bursts above him (I think I forgot to change the altitude marker for the dive: Sauerkraut is at altitude 1, with 1 climb marker, putting himself below the minimum altitude for AA fire,; thus, the automatic miss.) Camelbeagle makes a bad mistake and turns away from Flash, presenting a target to both the bombardier and the gunner/observer. Teaticket also dives, moving out of range of Baz again.

    Turn 9 spotting phase:
    Malachi & Crash A Lot both made their escapes, but Crash A Lot performed an overdive, and has three fire counters against, which must be resovled.
    And the draw for the overdive? 3 Fire counters are discarded, and Crash A lot makes it back to base, looking slightly singed.
    Sauerkraut is almost off the mapsheet, and Teaticket only slightly less so. In the south, Marechallannes continues to be pursued by 4 British interceptors, but he is out of range of all of them.
    Sauerkraut shook off the spotlight, and the others on the board all miss illuminating anyone.

    Altitudes:
    Flash 2, with 1 climb counter
    Camel Crew 2, with 4 climb counters
    Malachi: escaped
    Marechallannes: 3, with no climb
    Camelbeagle: 3, with 1 climb counter
    Sauerkraut: 1, with 1 climb counter
    Crash A Lot: escaped
    Gangleader147: 3, with no climb counters
    Teaticket: 2, with no climb
    Baz: 3, with 1 climb counter
    Hedeby: 1, with 2 climb counters
    Stumptonian: 1, with no climb counters

    ETA: It's been pointed out to me that I grabbed from the wrong deck with the fire suppression card. My error, I thought I was pulling from the B deck. At this point, I'm going to give the player the benefit of gamemaster error.

    Sooner than you think perhaps ! Missed my target, some of the load may have landed in the Thames but the rest would have mullered the southern ends of Waterloo and Charing Cross Bridges.
    Hope you don't have to catch a train there anytime soon

    I think you must have been relying on the viewpoint of Hans as the latest report on Waterloo is “The station itself saw little damage, except for an explosion on one of the lines” during the whole war to date

    Turn 9, Phase 1:
    Sauerkraut makes his escape, while Gangleader147 provides another demonstration of Thomas Sopwith’s latest product, the Sopwith Trireme. Hedeby turns towards the pair, while Camel Crew has nearly caught up. Stumptonian trails, but swerves to move in. Baz, cognizant of his previous mistake, Immelmanns to avoid Teaticket’s bomber, while the latter heads for home, still on fire. Camelbeagle turns towards Flash, but recognizes that flying over the target is much safer than flying into the target.

    Turn 9, Phase 2:
    Marechallannes climbs, thereby avoiding yet another ramming attempt by Gangleader147; this however puts him in range of Camel Crew, and the Gotha’s gunner/observer takes advantage of the tunnel mount to return fire. Hedeby likewise climbs, but remains just out of range. Elsewhere, Taticket dives to the relative safety of escape. Camelbeagle circles over Flash, looking for an opportunity to perform a diving attack.

    Turn 9, Phase 3:
    Baz turns away from the escaping Teaticket, only to come into range of the bombardier’s gun on Marechallannes’s Gotha. The bombardier gets in one burst before the bomber finally falls to the combined fire of Hedeby and Camel Crew. Camelbeagle overshoots Flash, as the last German bomber has almost made it to safety. Oh, for a rear gunner now!

    Turn 10 spotting phase:
    Teaticket exited the mapsheet with his aircraft on fire: resolution of that caused extensive damage, but was still not enough to bring down the Staaken-they do have a massive amount of hit points, after all. During the spotting phase, Flash is once again illuminated by a searchlight. As can be seen, Flash is just one or at the most two phases from escape: the only one that might be able to attack him is Camelbeagle, and that’s only if an Immelmann or right turn can stop him from exiting the mapsheet. I can call the game right now, resolving the AA burst against Flash, or we can try and game out the next two phases. Up to the lot of you. What say you?

    Altitudes:
    Flash 2, with 2 climb counters
    Camel Crew 2, with 4 climb counters
    Marechallannes: shot down
    Camelbeagle: 3, with 1 climb counter
    Sauerkraut: escaped
    Gangleader147: 3, with no climb counters
    Teaticket: escaped
    Baz: 3, with 2 climb counters
    Hedeby: 2 with no climb counters
    Stumptonian: 1, with no climb counters

    Dan (camelbeagle) has the only chance of doing anything to flash, so if he wants to play it out that's fine.
    No point in me plotting, though, so save yourself the time and just do the final move for them.

    It was an interesting ride. Thanks for all your efforts, Sam.

    Agreed - my work here is done and my Jack Russell attack methods didn’t help too much!

    I have submitted turn 10 because Dan did but I don't think we'll be in range of each other whatever moves are done due to altitude difference. Leave it to your call to resolve Sam.

    Okay with me Sam. With my engine making a horrendous racket, my intentions are to head straight for home by the nearest available edge. Those bombers were tough. Thoroughably enjoyalble game. REP on its way.

    Turn 10, the final outcome.

    Phase 1: Flash executes a left turn, while Camelbeagle executes a right. Both just barely remain on the map: but altitude difference means neither gets off a shot. Likewise, the British AA missed.

    Pase 2: Camelbeagle circles above Flash, checks his fuel gauge, and realizes he'd better head for home now, or he's not going to make it. The last German bomber escapes into the night. (I wasn't kidding about the fuel thing, though the coincidence did make for a good excuse to break off pursuit. Camelbeagle needed to exit the map sometime during turns 10, 11, or 12, or he would have crashed due to fuel loss-something the Germans were unaware of: each British aircraft had a maximum of 12 turns on the board.
    Likewise, the Germans had a fuel restriction that the British were unaware of, just a little more generous. The Germans also had the restriction that they each, individually, had to exit the map on the same edge they entered-the premise was that they had made it to London by finding a gap in the barrage balloon and AA defenses, but where unaware of the existence or location of other gaps.

    But it was a very close thing for Flash...had that last AA burst been a hit: I peeked, there was a boom card waiting for him. By scenario special rule, that would have dealt 9 more points of damage, added to the 18 head already had against...exactly enough to knock him out of the sky. Literal luck of the draw.

    But thanks to everyone who participated. It was a wild, wonderful game to manage, I had so much fun.

    I'll do a full write-up/analysis tomorrow. Watch this space!
