Solitaire scenario
Hello,
I am using a small solo scenario, here are the details if anyone wants to try it.
The player chooses a single fighter. The enemy will be a patrol of three DH-4 flying in inverted V; only the bomber leader will use maneuver cards, their wingmen are well trained and will faithfully keep station at both sides of his tail! (you can use the front fire-arc lines to align with the leader's center dot).
The player plots his movement as usual, 3 cards at a time. He/she moves always first; every time he plays a maneuver card, the bomber leader draws a random one from his movement deck. At the end of the 3-card round, the cards used by the DH4 return to the deck. If the leader is shot-down, the less damaged wingman advances to become the new leader. It is HIGHLY advisable to use the optional rules for ammo (player starts with six ammo points, one is expended each time he inflicts two cards of damage). Also, all three bombers should fire using deck B, this will simplify the scenario and, otherwise, the combined firepower of the DH-4s can prove too deadly for the single fighter. And remember the BLIND SPOT rule for two-seaters!If you find the fighter has not enough speed advantage over the zig-zagging bombers (sometimes this happen), you can let him play a fourth card of his choice after the round ends; there is no random card drawn in reply by the bombers, and there is no firing by either side.
The bombers should not be able to evade such a foe by themselves, so the scenario ends when the fighter is shot-down, his ammo is depleted or he has suffered enough damage and decides to live to fight another day.
In the first test of the scenario, the Red Baron received a hail of defensive fire in his first head-on approach; his second attack was extremely lucky (he shot-down the DH-4 leader with an 'automatic destruction' card), but in his third attack he suffered additional damage, including a bizarre combination of 'no-left'/'no-right' maneuver for next turn, so he returned home with a kill gained and a riddled fuselage.
Hope you find this at least playable!

I've never seen a flying hogfish. I saw one gliding once, but never flying, not actually flying.
