Bloody April 1917 Knights of the Sky Game

 






















We had a very enjoyable game of Knights of the Sky at the club last night, with twelve players spilt into two groups of six, half RFC, RNAS and Aviation Militaire and half German Imperial Air Service. At the start of the game the Allies weren't confident about their chances, faced by the combined firepower of five Alabtros DIII's and a Roland CII, but by the end of the game, they were the victors having shot down five of the Hun for the loss of only three aircraft. There were the usual funny moments and we all had a great time, which means another game will be on the cards before Xmas, assuming I get my act together and build some more biplanes. Tally Ho!

  3. What a fantastic-looking game. The hex map layout looks very impressive; was it custom made?

  4. Yes it was made by the rules author years ago. I think he blew up a boardgame map and had it laminated?
