I don't have an official answer, but since the game includes "bombers," it would not be hard to set something up with a "formation" of planes-- say 3 just as an example-- with a variable, limited number of cards available ( a couple cards each of straight, slow left turn, slow right turn for example) and draw/play those randomly, and have the entire formation stay together.

You you'd put your cards down (to attack the formation) and then turn up what the formation does.

It's largely a flying target (that shoots back) but the movement may make it even more interesting than the solo scenarios from Burning Drachens, which were attacking static targets-- balloons, ground targets, etc.

Yes, in "Raid over Malta" there is a Stuka with an escorting Reggiane 2001 attacking allied targets defended by AA guns. In avariant, you can use an Allied Stuka and a co-belligerant Italian Reggiane against German targets in the Balkans.

I find solo scenarios more a training than a full game experience, but they can be fun.

Thanks to anybody designing more of them, please pst them here or at the Yahoo discussion group for Wings of War:

Hi!!

I don't have any of this game series game, but I'm so intereted in them. As I'm a solitaire wargamer I only can use this game with their solo scenarios.

Is it worth to buy this game only to play solo scenarios?? Is the best solo game in the serie??

Thank you in advance for your help!!

Best regards,




Jose Manuel

You'll have to be quick before it sells out because nor the game nor the company (Nexus) still exist. I'd try "Fire from the sky" and "Burning Drachens".
