Just printed off the HL2 PDF game. Noticed I only have two of each pilot card (example' Fox has skilled and average cards, wedge has veteran and skilled etc) shouldn't I have all cards, green to ace for all pilots?

New to board game warfare (and PDF downloads - 3hrs in the making so far and still not cut out North Korea)! But loving it......

Thanks in advance for your help,

Andy

The extra pilot cards come in the pdf expansions.
This was one of things I disliked about the PnP version, you really needed the first two expansions to enjoy the game to the full - a $45 investment.
The third expansion does the same thing, but I found it didn't really add enough to the game to be worth it.

What are the first two expansions? I'm guessing Carrier ops is one of them. Also.... Does it involve more card cutting?

Almost finished cutting, just need to start glueing card back to backs before the invasion of Iraq begins!

The first two expansions are Carrier Air Group and Cold War, which together with the base game give you the full experience. The third expansion Marine Air adds AV8s.

I'm lazy, so I went for the PDF & Vassal option and use the PDFs for reference (not really necessary...) and play using Vassal, which works quite well.

Although I didn't make up the cards for HL2 I did do the ones that expand the original HL game - I just print, cut out, and pop in a card protector with no need to glue.

Happy hunting!
