A solo game for 1 to 6 players about the experience of flying bombing missions over Germany 1942-44. The RAF and the USAAF dropped 1.6 billion tons of bombs on Germany between 1939 and 1945. The impact on the German war machine was huge, but so was the cost. 55,573 Bomber Command crew lost their lives during this campaign. Each morning the weather and moon state were suitable, target(s) were selected by Bomber Command. A complex series of steps were then initiated to ensure the bombers were in the air, over the target at the appointed hour to deliver their bombs. The game allows the player to assemble their crew, select their target and go through the stages of the mission. From take-off, over the enemy coast, through the flak zones and onto the target. The rules are embedded in historical research and includes period material, such as briefings, aide-memories and maps. Playing the game aims to help the player(s) understand the experience of the crews of Bomber Command a little better.
