We played a quick game of Wings of Glory: WWI this evening.  Hadn't played in a looong time so we just threw together a quick battle.  I played as the Germans and took up a Zeppelin Staaken bomber with a Fokker Dr.I and an Albatross DIII as escort.  The RFC had a Camel, an R.E.8 and a Sopwith Strutter.

The Brits got a lucky hit on the bomber and blew it apart the turn after it got its bombs off, destroying the Brit HQ.  The Brits lost their Camel to fire and their R.E.8 due to navigational errors (it flew off the map).

Cigarbox has a 20% off sale on their 4x6’ felt mats right now if you buy 3 or more.  They’ve got some nice European fields mats as well as a WWI battlefield mat.  Even with the discount, they’re too pricey for me though.
