Description Edit | History

The Battle of Britain, 1940

RAF: The Battle of Britain 1940 is three games in one, on history's greatest air campaign:

RAF:LION updates the classic original solitaire game -- you control the RAF against the German raiders. All systems have been updated to reflect recent scholarship, notably the fatigue and patrol systems. Advanced rules cover late interception, VHF-equipped squadrons and evasion tactics, Ace squadrons, Forward Airfield Targets, Delayed RAF Response and more!

RAF:EAGLE reverses the solo game -- you control the Luftwaffe planning and executing raids against the RAF. Also, you flip the map over for a German perspective on the campaign. Advanced rules include, High Command requirements, deep targets, Jabos and special rules for Ju-87 Stukas.

RAF: 2-PLAYER allows for head-to-head play. A separate German planning display is added to allow the German player to plan his raids in secret.

Each game has its own complete rules booklet.

176 Die Cut Counters

17 RAF props and markers (used in Stuka Joe's playthrough videos)
This is a pdf file with the images of the props and markers I made for use in the playthrough videos I made for the game. I recommend that you print them on 8 1/2" x 11" sticker paper, laminate the paper, and paste them on plastic or cardboard. This pdf file includes: (1) Custom Raid Display (2) Target photographs (which are placed over the Target box on the Raid Display) (3) Arrows (4) Abort, Disrupted, Light Loss and Heavy Loss counters (5) Raid markers (showing size of Raid and DRM) (6) Warning and Intelligence markers (7) British and German Altitude markers (8) Combat Results Displays (9) Observer Corps markers

8 Compendium of changes in the 2013 RAF 2nd Printing
This document includes all the changes I made between the 2009 and 2013 printings of RAF. Changes affect all three games (Lion, Eagle and 2-Player) and include simple corrections, adjustments, and new advanced rules. If you don't have the reprint, you should check out these changes. This document supersedes all previously shared addenda.

5 RAF Lion Player Aid - Bomber Combat
This is a player aid for RAF Lion. It replaces the Bomber Box. Put the counters from the Close Escort and Bomber Box in the left column according to whether they are A, B, or C and whether they are full or reduced. Roll for the combat results and then slide each counter over to the results for that counter. After you've done all the sliding start picking up counters and you'll see the instructions for that counter directly underneath. This sheet is a bit a tight so there is some overlap but nothing that interferes with the game.

6 RAF Lion Player Aid - Hunter Combat
This is a simple player aid that replaces the Hunt Box. Put the counters in the correct space in the first column. Roll for results and then just slide the counters to the right to the correct position. As you lift the counters you will see the instructions you should follow. I played through the Battle of Britain scenario and found this to be helpful.

1 RAF Lion Campaign Raid Log - Manual Entry v1
[b]version 1[/b] This pdf file contains a raid day log for each Lion scenario. [i]Prelude to Eagle Day[/i] and [i]The Hardest Days[/i] each have one page. [i]The Thin Blue Line[/i] and [i]The Battle of Britain[/i] have two pages each. Depending on the length of your campaign in either of those scenarios, you may need to print a duplicate copy of the first page. These stats available to be recorded by these logs are quite extensive, perhaps more detailed than many players would want to track. However, it helps slow my play down and I find I make fewer mistakes and can go back and correct some of them if I use this. I have incorporated all four scenarios into one pdf file to reduce the number of file uploads that you would have to download and I upload. If you have any...

3 RAF Lion Raid Day Log - Digital Entry v1
[b]Version 1.1[/b] Here is an extensive stat tracker to record the events of each raid day during a game of RAF Lion. This is Excel spreadsheet designed for digital entry. There are a lot of formulas so I protected the worksheets (not with a password). See anything you don't like or want to change, just unprotect and modify. More stats than you're interested in tracking, unprotect and delete the row. This isn't formatted to look pretty. It's meant to be functional. I may try to improve its looks when I have time. There are two tabs, one for [i]The Hardest Days[/i] scenario and one for [i]The Thin Blue Line[/i] and [i]The Battle of Britain[/i]. I have yet to play a full campaign, so I had to estimate on the maximum number of raid days that might be played. There are 29...

1 RAF Lion Mid-Campaign Tote v1
This Excel file gives you a place to record all the pertinent facts of your campaign if you need to put the game away before finishing a campaign. This sheet will work for all three Lion multi-day scenarios: The Hardest Days, The Thin Blue Line, and The Battle of Britain. Each sheet can be used to record your spot twice. I've tried to format the sheet so that you can enter the information digitally if you don't want to pencil it in. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to improve the sheet or if there are any errors. If this is approved I will also upload a pdf version. Comments welcome!
