"Do you want to play Wings of War?" "Shhh! Now it is not called so any more. Now it is titled Wings of Glory".

"Why?" "It was not nice to propose a boardgame with the word WAR in the title, isn't it?"

"Did the game change too?" "No. You must glorify your opponents, inflicting them glory points with your machinegun".

So are "wings of war" and "wings of glory" compatible? Can you use parts from each in the same game?

100%.

Avery few planes might have slightly different game characteristics, but even if some plane card might differ you can always use the relative maneuvre decks for other plans.

Wow! A combination of Doublespeak AND Political Correctness in one! Sheesh! I'm glad I purchased "Wings of War" when Glory meant surviving a dogfight instead of getting blown out of the sky in a blaze of Glory. shake
