As with 303, 111 is fast. It's easy to learn, 1 game should be enough to get it and then it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to finish it. It's also very asymmetrical, so again a great suggestion is to play it twice, once as the Polish player and once as the LuftWaffe player.

The level of strategy versus luck is about the same as in 303. The goals are again very different for the Polish and LuftWaffe player, but this time the former one has a much harder time coping with the superior Messerschmitts and shooting down the bombers with just two dice is really tricky. This very nicely simulates the struggles of Polish pilots in September 1939, when facing clearly superior airforce. Again, no matter how good of a plan you have unlucky dice throws may completely alter your strategy. The inclusion of clouds is interesting since it makes every game a bit different.

To me is still feels like a crossover between an abstract and a wargame, but I believe that it may be a strength of this game, since it may appeal to both abstract gamers and wargamers. As with 303 it's one of the best short games I have in my collection.

A fun, light, fast wargame. As the Poles, you have to be really careful where you decide to attack the bombers, because they're hard to take out, and your planes are so slow. The AAA piece for Warsaw seems really pointless. Why not just print three dots on the map space, the way the one and two dots are printed for AA strength in the surrounding spaces?

[2015-06-26] Nice little strategy game! The placement of the clouds and the asymmetric design (compares to 303) makes it interesting!

Simple but elegant air-warfare game about uneven struggle between powerful German Luftwaffe and outnumbered and outdated Polish Air Forces during September Campaign of 1939. This is sequel (historically prequel of course) to 303 game. Comes with booklet with lots of historical data and bios of famous Polish pilots who took revenge on nazis during battle of Britain and later...good introduction to war gaming

Small package format (10x16" board) and 1" hexes, abstracted entry level play similar to 303. Saving grace is that it plays fast and you'll want to get a few games in. Some luck in the dice rolls but also some room for planning your ingress if you're the Germans. What you get for about $25 with regard to components and entertainment is good value. YMMV.

This feels like a very random abstract game. I thought it was kind of cool at first, but quickly realized that it's so driven by luck that I lost interest.

I tend to like wargames (or for that matter non-wargames) that have you switch sides after the first match, and compare who had the best result after playing each side once. Here though the point scoring system was so wacky, that I had done best not to engage the Polish at all during our second play in order to simply win outright.

Fun idea, but not for me.
