    Fantasy Flight Games has been one of my favorite publishers in the last several years.  The products I’ve bought from them have been of exceptional quality, be it a boardgame or an RPG supplement.  So I was delighted to take Wings of War out for a spin at Matt’s after we finished our Spycraft game.

    There were five us, and except for Matt, none of us had ever played.  We each were assigned an aircraft.  David and Don flew for the allies, while Ryan, Matt and I flew for the Kaiser.  The game is very easy to learn, simple and elegant, and a blast to play.  Which is to say, I shot down David and then we chased Don away from the battlefield.

    I think Matt pretty much has all of the expansions, and a lot of the miniatures, which add an enormous amount of visual appeal to the game.

    This is not a game I’m going to rush out and buy right now, because I ain’t got no money.  But I really enjoyed it and it’ll be at the top of my list when I win the lottery Friday night.
