There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

Duel in the Dark simulates the British night bombing runs over Germany during the Second World War. It is essentially a two player game, but with expansions is capable of handling five players. The game is asymmetrical. One player takes the role of the British bombers, and their escorts. The other player takes on the role of the German fighters, and ground defences.

The board has a stark artistic style to it. However, it is one of the most beautiful boards I've ever seen. When set up with all the pieces it comes alive in a way unlike any other. Not only do you have the various planes flying around (actually cardboard cutouts on plastic stands to give depth), but there is actually changing weather conditions on the board. Yes, cloud, thundercloud, and fog move around the board over the course of the game.

To win, one player simply needs to score more points than their opponent. The British score points mostly by successfully bombing a German city, but also by shooting down German fighters. The Germans score points by shooting down British bombers, and escort planes.

Duel in the Dark is so interesting, innovative, and unlike any other game I can think of. If you like strategy games, but with simple rules, and if you can find a copy I highly recommend purchasing it!

Agreed. And the Baby Blitz expansion really adds to the fun!
