DitD on steroids, a complete delight when you're interested in the topic. The ruleset & component quality are unforgivable though - it has the worst rules I've ever seen. So bad, that you end up not knowing how to play the game.

I enjoyed this quite a bit, it felt more interesting and more involving than the base game. The rules are a little sketchy, and it's a little more complex, but it is at least fairly intuitive once you get going. I really like that both sides have attack and defense options going, and it seems like the 5th (powerful) German nightfighter is a help for the balance problems that the basic game suffered from.

Adds a reasonable bit of complexity to the base game. I haven't played it yet as my nine year old son isn't quite ready for it yet. I love the graphics and the whole concept. Hopefully he'll be up for it soon . . .

Adds in some very neat stuff to the base game. The cool thing about DitD is that the additions are buffet-like -- you can pick and choose what you think is fun and add only that stuff. Very modular design. As usual, this Z-Man release is awesome component-wise.

Now THIS expansion takes Duel in the Dark to a whole new level!! The German player finally has some interested strategic decisions to make, instead of spending the entire game trying to guess where the British bomber is going to go next. So both sides now have offensive and defensive weapons, which makes the game much more interesting! I love everything this expansion has to add, including the Britain map, the new aircraft, the V1s, etc. And I wish I could have awarded it a 5/5 for game design, but there were a few niggling little issues. Firstly, my game arrived with a few missing components. Not cool. Secondly, the rulebook is even more of a hopelessly disorganized mess than the original rulebook was. Seriously, send a few hundred bucks my way and I'll rewrite the whole damn thing for you. And thirdly, our initial impression is that the game is hopelessly imbalanced in favour of the Germans now that they have their own bomber and 3 V1s. Fortunately, this is easily remedied with a few simple house-rules, such as decreasing the number of German ground defense resources and, instead of awarding 7 base points for the spoof raid, using the city target markers from Early Nights to give the spoof raid bomber a certain number of points based on the target city. Overall, I'd say this expansion is a must-have for anyone who owns and enjoys the base game. Game design: 4.5/5 Personal enjoyment: 4/5 Total: 8.5/10

Finally, the Germans get into the game with some bombing of their own. The best addition to the base game so far.

Sept'11. The Germans seem to win very easy. Somehow the spoof-attack always turns against the British.

Really adds more activity to the game, first impressions very good!

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

This game adds some welcome complexity and variety to the parent game. Plus it effectively doubles each sides playable pieces. If you like Duel in the Dark. You will really enjoy Baby Blitz.

Adding the side map of England, plus giving the Germans the ability to run their own bombing campaign courtesy of a new bomber and 3 V1 rockets (which travel in a straight line) means the game changes quite a bit, making it more or less a balanced affair for both players and saving you from having to play back to back so that both get a change to do and defend a bombing run. Having said that, there's double the amount of setup time as both teams now need to do both a bombing program *and* setup ground defense. It feels literally like the first half of the time spent on the game is setup, and the second half running through the programs testing how good your setups were. And with new ground resources and new fighter rules, if you're not bringing the game out regularly it's easy to get lost and lose the thrill of the theme in all the VP accounting questions that are raised each turn. In summary ... more choice and more player balance, however offset by more rules and more setup. And the rules are quite atrocious so be warned - poor layout, too many questions unanswered, don't combine well with the original set, the FAQ is long and growing. A mixed bag expansion.

Very nice "big box" expansion that beefs up the tactical side for the German player and adds several interesting new bits and pieces to insert into your game.
The rules are not very clearly written though, but the game gets a huge boost from this expansion nonetheless.

Baby Blitz is the big box expansion for DITD. Additional mapboard showing England allows the Germans to have a bombing target as well. The Germans also get V1 rockets to hit targets for VPs. This expansion is fun, but is marred by a god awful rulebook. Some searching on BGG helped me clear up some rules. Also this is EXTREMELY difficult for the British to win, so if you're the experienced player, play the British.
