One of the most original games ever! Simultaneous movement and combat, fog of war, all in a couple of sturdy softback books you could tote around with you anywhere. Out of print, but well worth chasing until you get it.

This set can be used with either the Rotary or Powerhouse editions to handicap a better player, as these represent older, less powerful planes.

HOW DO IT KNOW !!! I love this mechanism. I am playing it again after many years and an extensive search. Print out some recording sheets, people will begin to memorize the moves and the first to call out his move will get smoked. I find that the Allied Pusher is very difficult to defeat.

Nova certainly came up with groun breaking mechanics and this style of game for 2 is absolutely superb.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

A wonderful game that really gives the flavor of a dogfight. I've had this since the early 80's and have yet to even read the Intermediate and Advanced rules! I'm easily sated, I guess. I used to drive my friend Bob insane by continually guessing right where he'd be.

All the Ace of Aces books are fun to play. However, it becomes a challenge with more than three players especially if you are playing the advanced game.

Although it sounded like a great idea, I never liked how the forward flex gun fit into the game. Maybe it's a good thing the system never got around to adding any aircraft with rear gunners.

I never found the curious front gun to be a "problem" - it inflicts a reduced amount of damage which is certainly "realistic". My problem was the fact that the DH/2 was never really operational with a flexible gun; in practice, the flexible gun was found to be impractical so the gun was fixed. However, planes from the same era as the DH/2, i.e. Vickers Gunbus, Fe2b, etc. used a flexible forward gun since they had a gunner along for the ride.

The DH/2 - Fokker E. III match up was a bit odd - in reality, the DH/2 could fly circles around the Fokker despite the former being aerodynamically unsound due to its pusher design. The Fokker's brief period of ascendancy was due to the fact that it was one of the first planes to mount a forward firing gun rather than the make-shift mountings for machine guns and rifles and other weapons which had been used up until that time. Once other (better) planes that were similarly armed began to make their presence felt, the Fokker fell by the wayside.

Ace of Aces is an excellent two player game, even in the basic edition. Doesn't take much space, is easy to teach, and plays well. Alas, it is long, long out of print. The initial three books were the best.

Classic WW1 air combat game. I particularly like this set for playing the basic game, as there are fewer manuevers making it harder to set up your opponent. Also the swivel gun on the allied plane adds a new element not found in other games of the series.

One of may favourite a simple but great game, I also like the way that you can fly one plane against another. Personally my favourites are the power house planes

This version features the British Airco with swivel-guns (allowing a forward 90 degree field of fire!). This makes for a very challenging game for the German monoplane!
