Description Edit | History

(from GMTwebsite:)

Nightfighter is a board game of air warfare in the night skies of WWII. Using a blind play system, an umpire controls the attacking forces while the defending player must find, fix, and destroy the incoming bombers.

Nightfighter recreates the tactics of night fighting, from the cat's eye intercepts of the London night blitz to the Mosquito intruder operations at the climax of the war.

More than forty scenarios describe the development of nightfighting aircraft and technology. Rules cover radar-guided interception, searchlights, airborne radar and electronic countermeasures. Specials weapons such as Schr„ge Musik are featured. Tactics such as Wild Boar and Tame Boar (Wilde Sau and Zahme Sau) receive their own scenarios.

Nightfighter features more than fifty fighter and bomber variants, from early Blenheim and Ju88 interceptors to advanced fighters such as the Mosquito and He219. Pacific operations see F4U-2s and P-61A Black Widow fighters engaging Japanese bomber threats. Rarities such as the Ta154, Me262B-1a and the Japanese J1N1 Gekko are included.

Fast-playing, with scenarios that can be completed in 30-45 minutes, Nightfighter provides a new view of the night hunters of the sky.

Nightfighter is designed to be able to be played with Bomber Command. Both games can be played as stand-alone titles. However Bomber Command playthroughs can be used to generate scenarios resolved by playing Nightfighter.

6 Play Aid for Nightfighter single green pilot campaign
After playing the whole campaign, I have made this play aid not to repeat several oversights with the variant rules of Phil Sabin.

13 To the Bitter End '43 - '45 German Campaign
Version 4 fixes the fact I forgot to include what turns the Intruders show up (DOH). Also fixed are the typo's and format issues. This is a home brewed continuation of the Nightfighter campaign included in the Rules Supplement. This enables one to take a Staffel or Pilot to the bitter end of 1945. I have introduced some changes to the overall scheme and the win conditions but believe I have kept it in the same spirit of simplicity/challenge/fun that the designer had in mind. Fun stuff at a glance: Radar equipped bomber encounters! Zahme Sau (Tame Boar) tactics! Intruders on your six! Earn new aircraft! SURVIVE! Thanks for checking it out, as I said in the cover page: If you should run into any problems, spelling errors, confusing wording, or something that just doesn’t work for you...

14 Russian Front Campaign for Nightfighter
For those who fancy something different, here are some campaign rules I've developed for GMT's Nightfighter game. They allow a player to fight against Soviet aircraft on the Russian front. The rules cover the full campaign (umpired and solitaire), as well as the solitaire lite campaign. Players will need to refer to the aircraft data in the board game for some of the aircraft used. This is a first (playtest) version, so any feedback would be appreciated.
