Last month (April) Mark and I played a couple of games of Wings of War as I wanted to see how they worked. The first thing I learned is that Wings of War is now being revised and re-released as Wings of Glory (see http://www.aresgames.eu/games/ww2-wings-of-glory-line and http://www.aresgames.eu/games/ww1-wings-of-glory-line). I had heard a lot about Wings of War, and I vaguely recall Mark once explaining how it worked to me. We didn’t have a big game planned so I asked Mark to run a couple of games so I could see how it worked. Overall, I thought the game worked very well and I see why it is so popular. I like airplane games, but I am not a pilot so I want my airplane games to be simple enough for someone with no idea of how to fly a plane. The game mechanics should do the work, not me trying to imagine how to fly my plane. Wings of War succeeded admirably with this demand. It was also just a lot of fun. Our games were pretty short and in a couple of hours I suspect that you could play many rounds, even with more than a couple of players. I enjoyed the World War One version of Wings of War and will be buying some of the Wings of Glory products for both World War One and World War Two when they are available.
We also played a game of Zombies!!!, which is always great fun. We just played the basic game as Mark had not played in a long time. Sadly, Mark clearly won the game with his brilliant use of some of the event cards. Zombies!!! Plays very well with 2 players, but I suspect it would be even more fun with 4 to 6 players, especially in a very fun oriented, social game setting. I cannot recommend Zombies!!! enough; every game I have played has been a blast. For more about the Zombies!!! game see http://www.twilightcreationsinc.com/en/boardgames/zombies.html.
