I recently got this on E-bay and was looking for some rules/tips. Any suggestions on what I should print out from the files section (or offsite) to help get started or make the game easier to play?

Thanks

Read the rules twice through.
Get a good sequence of play.
Do a practice mission.

That should be enough! (Step 2 is the most important!)

Personally, I thought the rulebook was quite good. It's an easy game to play.

Look for stuff by Felipe Santamaría Iraolagoitia (Felisan88), but don't miss out on all the other good free stuff!!!

And don't forget the errata. You can find it in a few locations. For example: http://www.skdgaming.com/b17/errata.htm

If you bought one of the later B-17 games there is errata on the back of the orange chart.

Lovely solitaire times are ahead!
Tonight on eBay, I finally secured a copy of B-17. I'm all eager to play the game on my winter vacation! Two whole weeks of nothing but gaming and relaxing!

I noticed similar enhanced counters for sale on eBay. Are there any recommended sets I should pick up?
