I really like this game. Find it a lot similar to the Wings of War - Famous Aces and I really don't know why this game have low reviews. Maybe the setting. If it was a WWI or WWII scenario, the game would be much more popular.

Excellent air combat game, and awesome theme. One of Wizkids' best games ever.

The movement system can be a little tricky for some people to figure out, but it works great once you know what you're doing. Vaguely reminiscent of the movement system in Wings of War, but still gives a completely different feel.


I used to have this rated a 10, but it's been so long since it last got played that I've started dropping it bit by bit.

The best WizKids game. No more stalling like in Mage Knight, great figures; it rewards intuition. Superb fun.

One of the better miniature games from WizKids. Collectable but not random, with cool planes and pretty good rules; I didn't care much about the pilot rules and miniatures, but the plane game was cool.

After a couple of plays, I'm enjoying this game more and more. Yes, it does have some ambiguities rule-wise, but logic prevails more often than not. One thing that really helps the game is making goofy zooming buzzing plane noises when you move your plane. Tee hee!

The secret to this game: bring your planes in at a slow speed, as it is almost always better to move and fire second - as you can wait to see where your faster opponent ended up, then position yourself accordingly.

Very nice mechanics. Simple but really funny, you can play an intense dogfight in just an hour. The rules are easy to master, but you need experience to play well. And the planes are too cool. 8)

Played only a few different times and most of my stuff is still in the blister packs. I thought about breaking them open and painting extra stuff on them. I love the genre.

I like this game a lot.

The Good: The basic mechanic is very innovative; you have to try this one.

The Bad: I found the numbers and colors hard to read. Also, too many colors (special abilities) pop up each turn, bogging things down.

1 of every ship, the rules, acrylic templates (for quick movement resolution), plus a custom blimp for the Black Swans and a blimp/carrier for the red squadron.

One of WizKids's better efforts using the Clix system. I was very sorry to see it go, and am always looking for an opportunity to play.

I really liked this game. It has great theme, not randomly collectable, and was great for any number of players but... clicky games are good but this game would have benefitted from card based stats ala WarMachine or Star Wars minis. Altitude rules are a needed to really appeal to air combat fans.

BTW, I need an extra set of Black Swans and I need the promo silk stocking and signed 8x10 to complete my set.

Usually I don't like 3D miniatures games. Anyway, this is a good exception. The background of the game is another detailed and rich universe from the imagination of Jordan Weisman.
