Wings of War: Famous Aces   (View Game)
   Peter M

I bought this game for my 14 year-old son's birthday in early April. It has been played several times, and ranks up there with Bang! and Ticket to Ride as the favorite game right now. The game quality and artwork is good. Playability is also good, and the rules are simple. Each plane is controlled using a "manouver" deck of cards, with subtle differences in the performance of the different aircraft. These differences can be exploited to your advantage as skill improves (and grasp of vector math!!). The game concept is well thought out - the players have to plan their next 3 manouvers without knowing what the opponent is going to do, so there is an element of bluff and double bluff involved. We normally play 2 planes against 2 planes, and a game will last about an hour. Small gripe - it would be nice to get 2 sets of each of the manouver decks with the game to allow small "squadron" action - additional plane cards of each type are included, but not the extra manouver decks. We will be buying the 2nd game in the series ("Watch your Back") which introduces the 2 seater planes (and thus an extra dimension to the game and the possibility for some good scenarios). My sons and I are pleased with the purchase, and would recommend it for those wanting a basic (but entertaining !)introduction to aerial combat.
