This is the other 'new' game that I'm planning to try out over the summer holidays. I have a copy of the original GDW version of Blue Max but, now that this newer edition has come down in price, I thought I'd give it a go. I have played a lot of WW1 aerial games in the past, both with 1/72nd scale models and the Wings of War (Glory) series, so it's a good addition to the arsenal. There are only a limited number of aircraft in this version of the game but the production values are pretty slick, so a step up from the original game with it's flimsy counters, easily torn hex map and paper player aids. I think it will be a nice change from Wings of War, which is a lot of fun but a bit repetitive after a few games.
