Anyone have any thoughts on how this would play with three or more sides fighting it out (putting historical accuracy firmly to one side, of course). I was thinking of three teams of two, or five individual players or some such. Give everyone a maximum number of points and let them choose what aircraft they want. Last one flying, or the one with the most kills, is the winner.

Don't see anything to stop it working at all.

Fighting in a bracket or round-robin style? Or just one big furball? Either way, it would work, and sounds like fun (and if you own Dauntless you could add even more planes to choose from).

If you're going to play in rounds, you might have to come up with rules for repairing damage, replacing pilots (if a side has more than one), etc., etc.

I was thinking of putting everyone up at once in a free-for-all. I've got Dauntless so there's plenty of choice.

In my experience, free-for-all is not a great way to play. Someone always ends up being picked on by more than one opponent. You know your friends, so you can judge whether they would be okay with that, but I've seen people take it very badly.

I'd stick with team play with even sides.

Give everyone a 300 point escort carrier and 100 points. Don't forget the planes from the Expansion Kit.

Late to the party on this, but in my experience this works if you give the fastest/best player twice the points as the other two and have a two vs. one game.
