Absolutely brilliant! Fantastic feel of the subject (although it's not a simulation but that's not a criticism), graphically attractive, exciting and wonderfully fun. If you want a great solo game or are keen on jumping in the cockpit of a Spitfire or Hurricane and duelling with Jerry over the White Cliffs of Dover in the summer of 1940, then this is it. I can't recommend this enough!

I love this game! Overlooked gem... probably best appreciated by the kind of player who enjoys DVG style Air Leader games. GREAT Vassal mod too... I play about 1 to 2 days in a session and game play is right under an hour.

This one goes up to 9, because the two-player variant is also a lot of fun. Excellent hidden gem. Can easily be played with casual gamers, too.

Interesting little game, which portrays the Battle of Britain on a tactical/operational level. Lost twice, but seriosly kicked the Luftwaffe's butt after starting with two Spitfires pilots, who became aces after three days. angry

Great game, tense and involving. Rules are excellent, very clear and concise with some good examples of play.

I've left it set up and keep going back to it to play 'just another phase or two'. It's totally captivating.

London's Burning is a very good solitaire game covering the Battle of Britain, focusing on the attacks on London and the surrounding area from 13 August 1940 - also known as "Adler Tag" ("Eagle Day") - to 15 September 1940 (for the long scenario). It is an easy game to learn, but VERY difficult to win, as you never seem to have enough fighters available to truly make a difference (two fighters at a time never seems to be enough to turn the tables). Nevertheless, it is very enjoyable.

I can understand why some people dont like the game. If you are looking for a simulation of the entire battle, this is not it. What this is is an abstract treatment of the entire battle but brings it down to a very one on one level. The game is ALOT of fun and has a good feel for the battle. I would highly recommend it

An excellent solitaire game with logical and thematic actions. It is brually difficult to make a real dent in the german raiding parties, but the whole experience is very fun no matter what the outcome. My favourite solitaire game so far!

A very good solitaire wargame. I don't play wargames very much any more, but I suppose if I felt the urge to, this may be the one I get out. Only because I don't think I would be able to find an opponent.

Beautiful airplane counters and light but interesting play. Strange how some pilots seem to develop personalities - Clisby always manages to fly into a pack of enemy fighters and gets his plane shot to ribbons, yet miraciously survives to fly again.

Solitaire game set during the Battle of Britain. The player plays two RAF pilots going up against the Luftwaffe. It's not very realistic, and it is easy to win once you have figured out the ideal tactics. However, the game is simple, quick, attractive, and errata-free. I found it to be a lot of fun.

Played solo multiple times and as a two-player cooperative effort, which left me feeling very happy I received this game in trade. It represents just the level of detail/abstraction I wanted in a Battle of Britain title, and I wish all AH games had been this easy to pick up and learn!

Another WWII solitaire game, this one covering the Battle of Britian at the operational level. The player controls when and where to commit planes for the defense of Britian. Includes nice touches like managing pilot fatigue and the repair of damaged infrastructure in addition to shooting down planes. The rules are surprisingly well written and clear. Fun diversion when you don't have an opponent.

The system is simple and smooth with plenty of meat on the bones to keep it interesting and tense. The movement mechanism for the Germans and the combat system are both well thought out. One of the best solitare games I have ever seen.A great game!Update: since obtaining RAF, this one does not come out too much now. Still a good game but, if I want to fight the Battle of Britain, I'll go with RAF.

A very good solitaire game covering the Battle of Britain. The full campaign can take a little long to play and yes, this is a luck driven game as the number of raiders, path to cities, etc., can have some dire consequences depending upon a series of die rolls. Still, it is fun to play.

Though with high degree of abstraction, Ben Knight succeeded to show German Blitz and desperate effort of RAF.

Totally different from RAF from Westend games.

Always good to have a few wargames with a high fun factor. War&Peace, Russian Campaign=not fun but great historical games. This title is fun, and the inclusion of a campaign bumps this game to an 8. I normally only enjoy Strategic theater games and this game has an operational them and then when combat starts will shift to a small tactical setting to simulate the battles. Patton's Best is similar to this same mindset, although I found Patten's Best after awhile was repetitive.
