Ten years and more passed since Wings of War/Glory appeared on the market. Here a few amazing and gorgeous things that fond players of this little game did. Making it great indeed. Out of love for their hobby and for their fellow gamers - they are not the designers nor the publishers, just players as you. Here a little tribute and a huge Thank you! to them.

I posted a few things I remembered with the references I have. Click on items and pictures to know more. And feel free to add more examples, if you know them - I forgot so many!

They made it smaller as a "travel edition", as with this 33% version of Famous Aces made by Joseph (ElCid91) to play with his wife in her hospital. She won him twice and gave birth to their son in the same morning.

They took seriously the "Largest Wings of War Game Ever" joke, as in this first 22 players game on May 22, 2005 at Mucca Games, Tarquinia (central Italy). The record bounced all around Europe and USA. Current record is 100 players in Florence, at Firenzegioca.
