B-17 is an excellent solitare game. Your odds of having a plane survive 25 missions is next to zero, but it's a blast watching your plane battle it's way to and from the target sites. Every mission is like a 'B' WWII combat movie.

This is one of my favorite games. Only wish it could have expanded... more targets, etc. I never did complete a full 25 mission campaign.

First boardgame that got me hooked for life. Pretty much comes down to the roll of the dice. Must be VERY lucky to go 25 missions.

Excellent solo game that captures the intense daylight bombing runs of WW2, I still have never won the campaign game. A real nailbiter of a game.

I love this game. I asked it to marry me, but it never replied. I own two copies and still bid on more off ebay. I even wrote two fully fleshed expansions that add damage charts for the german fighters similar to those used for your bomber. wanna buy the rights? call me. I'm a cheap date.

Great game! How I hate to lose my men to German fighters...struggled back to base, holes everywhere, burns, wounded, KIA's...decision making in game who cares when all u want to do is get your men & plane home safely...usually never in one piece...and it's just a brilliant game IMHO because the feelings that the game creates. A genuine empathy for our personally named cardboard crew...doesn't sound right but it really works! I named one of my gunners after a person at work who I never really liked...Ahem...and I put him in the tail gunner position...after several enemy fighter attacks he actually saved our bacon...and several missions I even liked the guy! (Too bad the real life version never saved anything but himself-he was eventually lost bailing out over Germany as a POW)

I put my mates in crew positions, relatives, sometimes famous movie stars-Clint Eastwood has piloted many a mission. Play it. Don't believe all you read. Find out fer yerself! Be it. If u don't like after playing fine. At least ya gave it a whirl and u know. Read a book by Ambrose...or some vet first hands experiences.

Love it, i played it over and over and cant have enough of it. My 9 year old son roll the dice for the German aircraft, my 1st bomber (aka Spearmen/4 mission exp.) got hit in the bombs bay and the bombs explode killing everybody on board. My 2nd bomber (aka Gladiator/7 mision exp.) got hit on the port wing by a hell diving FW 190 and the fuel tank got fire, even with my rabbitfoot the hit was the same, everybody bail out over Belgium but they end up as P.O.W.
My son's smile was everlasting.
I love this game absolutely. Bought it on E-bay from England. Best solo game ever, Its a good thing to watch Memphis Belle also.

Extremely fun game to play despite the "game controlled" enemy.
I played this one to death. several missions in one night, in fact.
I never had a plane or crew member make it to 25 missions, so that kinda makes it a tad unrealistic.
I wish I still had it, but unfortunately this game, and several others, wound up in a box that was mistakenly taken to the garbage.

A great game! This game simulates the horrors the bomber crews face 20,000 feet above "Fortress Europe" on a daily basis. Though a very deadly game it is a great challenge where a very few complete a 25 mission tour with their original crew men much less their plane.

Best when played as a cooperative squadron in an online campaign or at a convention in a mass squadron effort.

Have the Target Games 1981 version. It is an excellent solitaire game. Never seen a 25 mission game completed: without re-roles, that is! The General magazine by Avalon Hill had a cool variant using the heavily gunned "Porcupine" version of a B-17.

Despite this being a complete no-brainer game - everything happens by dice roll, there are few decisions to take - it is the best of its type and passes a pleasant couple of hours.

Next to Ambush, B-17 is my favorite solo game. I think the best I did with any single bomber was around 15 missions before being shot down.

GREAT! solitare game. I love WWII and I love B-17's so my opinion might be biased. For a historical simulation the game is not dry or boring because you get attached to your crew and your plane. Some minor errata but otherwise a solid game. Only problem is that it is not very good for playing with anyone but yourself. the 2nd(German) player just doesn't really have much to do.
