Yesterday met up with Nick and Simon for coffee in the moribund (thanks to Starbucks) Cafe Parisienne. This led to a snap session at Nick's place in the afternoon. A BattleCry tournament (which I won) followed by two games of Rise of the Luftwaffe. This is GMT's fantastic Up Front type cardgame about Battle of Britain era air combat. First time it was Simon and Nick with 2 Hurricanes each against my 2 FW190s. I downed one of each. Second time they took Spitfires instead and I shot down both of Nick's. Took a bit more damage to the paintwork but nothing fatal. Shows what a powerful weapon the FW190 was. What a great game, fast and furious!
