Tally Ho!

The Battle of Britain Bag The Hun 2 introductory game this evening was a real success and was well received by all of the players involved. In the end, I ended up with slightly fewer participants so decided to run a simple fighter v. fighter game, using the cards that I'd laminated up but leaving out the bombers to keep things simple.

I'll do a write up of the whole thing later on, after I've had some feedback from the flight and schwarm commanders, but it was a narrow RAF victory. This was a bit of a turnaround for the plucky players concerned due to a bit of a sticky wicket in the opening turns. However, the collective stiff upper lip didn't wobble and things turned out tickety boo by the close of play.

Well done chaps!

Incidentally, everyone was duly impressed by the turn cards which Duncan very kindly provided for the game. As you can see in the photos, they are rather good and add a definite quality to the game, especially the Bale Out! card, which was employed on at least four occasions towards the climax of the proceedings.

Tally Ho!


  1. Hi Jim.
    Looks very good. I'm rather proud of my cards I must say - my thanks to the guys round the table for humouring you with the artistic planes & cards photos!
    Going to do something with that awful plane record sheet next I think... Don't like them at all, and a laminated A4 with whiteboard markers would be far more fluid

  2. Beautiful cards and very nicely painted aircraft. I used to play loooooong ago Air Force; may have to try some day Bag the Hun too

  3. Nice one Jim. Nice models. Looks like a lot of fun. I too recently ran some 'Bag The Hun' games at the So'ton club. It went down well there too.

    Paul mentioned the BTH Soton game...sounds like a great time was had by all!
