P.S.: nothing against triplanes... ;-)

I am an air enthusiast and I always loved games about WWI in the skies. I am not very well updated on the new releases... But I still play several old classics!

If anybody prefers World War Two:

Strategy and tactics in WWII skies: strategy!

First edition did not even have rules for altitude and I don't agree with some manoeuvre cards... But who cares! Played a lot, now also online at www.youplay.it .

Mike carr managed to smuggle it into a role-playing games collection... But it is a nice boardgame indeed. Squares instead of hexes don't bother me at all.

This is the Milton Bradley game with plastic planes you were thinking of! The aircraft are SPADs and Fokker DVII's. A fun kids classic.

Dogfight...the 1963 version!
I cant believe anyone has added this one yet! It may not have the most colorful planes (green and red) but the board/box art is great.
Without this game I dont know if I ever would have had become a boardgamer. I loved the little aircraft miniatures so much, I injured my arm trying to get one back from my parents and uncle after they took it away from me when I stole it from the game box, and played with it outside. (I was 7) I put my arm right through a glass door reaching for it, as the door slammed on my arm...never will forget it.

Wings of War is now my favorite game...thank you Andrea, and all those who made it happen again....
This time I'll try not to injure myself when the new miniatures appear behind the windows of my favorite game store in Illinois!

Ahhh...edit....I see someone DID post it! great!...

One of the best of them all. A pity that it only features the first 50 planes (actually a lot): the secont 50 where in the unreleased expansion. The only one with Caproni bombers and the unforgettable 5-hexes long Zeppelin.
