I have a couple questions for the designer:

1) How many planes/players will be supported by this box-set? The FFG website says 2-4 and the 'Geek entry says 2-6. Which is it? And what is the final say on which planes are included?

2) Assuming that this game sells well, how many box-sets would you like to release to cover all of WWII? Do you plan on adding bombers? I'd love to see some B-17s and B-24s! I imagine that it will be a little tricky to simulate heavy bombers--they had lots of guns covering every arc, yet their fire was not particularly effective. They still needed fighter escorts.

3) When will this reach the U.S.?

1) 2-6: there will be 6 maneuvre decks. This is a last minute change (almost). So FFG did not update yet.

2) As many boxes as possible... slowly. We will start with a couple of boosters called Squadron Packs (Bf.109 and Spitfire already in the box, each with three deck), then a second box, then... miniatures, maybe? heavy bombers have been playtested for WWI and could appear earlier in a WWI set.

3) A couple of weeks, I guess. They were expected aboiut 20 days later than WWI minis.

Bye!

booster packs
How close are the booster packs from release?

It's not clear from your posting-- is it 3 decks of Spitfires and 3 decks of Me/BF 109s in ONE booster box?

(That would be lovely.)

Or one pack of Spits and one pack of 109s?

Boosters are actually of slightly less than 70 cards, but maybe we can add a couple. A maneuvre deck needs 18 of them. So each booster will have 3 maneuvre deck (either for Spitfire or for Bf109) plus some airplane cards.
Far from release. Autumn, maybe.

Thanks a lot for asking!

Andrea
