Check Your 6 game

Here is a very brief AAR from a game me and Dallas had the other night. We didn't expect quite so much carnage. I need to get back into the habit of writing detailed batreps, just been too busy/lazy lately.

The Mission: An American supply convoy is headed to a Garrison on Ahomana Island. The convoy consists of 3 transports and 1 escort destroyer. Limited air cover is provided by 4 F4F wildcats. A small Japanese raider group spots the ships and moves to intercept.

The Japanese force consists of 3 Kate torpedo bombers, 3 Val Dive bombers, and 2 Zeros piloted by experienced pilots.

In the end not a single plane escaped unscathed. The japanese lost 2 Kates, 1 Val, and 1 Zero, with every other plane severely damaged. the US made it home with only one Wildcat, who was also damaged. All 3 transports were sunk, but the escort Destroyer was unscathed.

Lots of pics after the break.

how are the rule systems ?

Joe, I actually really like CY6. I've only ever played 2 other aviation games so I'm not sure I have the breadth of experience to compare, but it seems to favor lots of planes under one persons control, and much like Flames of War somewhat abstracts the detail for playability.

Also much like FOW the end results usually end up the same. I've had a blast with it every time I've played, though I'm sure we still struggle with the rules.

You're invited to come play anytime! Just let me know when you're free!

Sounds great ...... I will have to take you up on the offer once my schedule allows. Is there any European airplanes available ?

They definitely have rules and all for Euro planes, but I don't own any yet. I'd like to get some planes for the Battle of London, but it'll be a little while before I do that.
