I'm interested in getting into "Wings of Glory" (WWI) and the Duel Packs seem like the best way of doing so. I was hoping to pick up two / each of them.

That said, they seem to be out of stock everywhere I look. Would anyone know if they're out of print? If so, any word on reprinting?

Finally, if I can't find these anywhere, what's the next best way to get into this game as a beginner?

Thanks!

The publisher's site says "Now available":
http://www.aresgames.eu/upcoming-products

Maybe shops have sold out it for Christmas and they still need to restock it after the seasonal holydays.

You could try getting one of the card only version of the games. The play is the same except no miniatures. That way, you can see for sure if you like the game and then buy the airplanes that you like.

Look in the marketplace under Wings of War.

Duel packs include basic, standard and part of the optional rules, plus scenarios. So they are enough to play even without the Wings of Glory: WW1 Rules and Accessories Pack.

Thanks for clarifying that. I was assuming that the Professor X might get some single plane packs for which he'd need the rules if he didn't get a duel pack.

Thank you everyone.
I've ended up ordering the rules and accessory pack along with a small number of planes from coolstuffinc.
The prices were all very good.
I was able to find a duel pack here or there, but they were a bit higher priced than they should be and when one factors in S&H, it just seemed better to me to wait until they're reprinted.
With that in mind, I intentionally avoided the planes that were featured in the duel packs - I really do hope to pick them up one day.
