Never heard before.

Is this a B-17 Queen of the Skies game modified with squadron rules ?

Except the squadron rules, what can I expect from it ? The review is not helping at all on understanding what this game gives you. If it's only squadron rules, I'd stick with the old Queen of the Skies.

I think it is a little more than just squadron rules, according to what I've seen of it and reviews etc. I reckon I'll invest in the P&P version available. I dabbled with some rules of my own for Group-strength (@18 aircraft) missions. This might well do a better job than mine did.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

Likewise. I've got the link bookmarked but I'm just not sure about it. I look forward to what you think and if it could serve in some way to partner QOTS such as playing out the bigger picture.

If it's going to be a good add on for B17 I am surely going to buy it.

But honestly I'm not sure. I don't know if it's better to wait for the next game of B17 to get out... also, how's the production at the moment ? One year ago they were fixing the last B24 problems ?

No, not 'Bombs Away'. This one: B-17 Bomber Squadron: A Solitaire Game of the WWII Daylight Bombing Campaign over Europe. (see link above).

I think Legion have re-named 'Bombs Away'(?)....It's not this game, anyway.

Cheers, - Al.
