3rd Edition is NOW AVAILABLE!!!! Sonic Quill Publications has bought reproduction rights to AAW (as well as Reisen) and reprinted the popular game.

The major feature of the new edition is a complete reorganization of the rules. Every effort was to make the rules as play friendly as possible. Related information that was scattered throughout the 12th Anniversary Edition are now consolidated. Repeated information is removed and cross referencing is used instead. The rich background information has been taken out of the rules proper and end noted.

There was a little re-working of the rules, perhaps the most notable being an incremental approach to snow rather than the massive dumping of weight. Parachutes, lifeboats, airplane bombing of ships and airplanes landing in water also had some re-writing and clarifications made.

3rd Edition Rules are still compatible with 12th Anniversary Edition maps and pieces. For those who bought the 12th Anniversary Edition, you can purchase the rulebook separately as an economical way to upgrade. Mapsheets and counters are also available for individual sale to replace lost or damaged pieces.

What can we expect in the future?

Sonic Quill Publications (SPQ) will post a Questions and Answers page on our website, as well as an Optional Rules page. Both will be downloadable for free in pdf format and should be up by the end of July 2010. Look to www.sonicquillpubs.com. SQP only sells wholesale, but the web site has a contact link that can be used to ask who is currently selling the game retail.

SQP also plans to create new expansion sets. The current project is tentatively called LeMay's Legacy and will focus on US Strategic Bombing in Europe and Pacific.

Apart from the rules were there any other changes done to the game? I wasn't big fan of the pink color. Are the cards and counters still pink? Do the counters and cards have different graphics on them?

OK, I just bought the 3rd edition of the base game. Is the previously released expansion Riesenflugzeugabteilungen compatible with it? Or should I wait for a revised version of that?
