The first game was a bout of semi-organised chaos. With seven players (a total of fourteen planes) in a deathmatch sitaution, all sense of fair play went out of the window. Several pilots were forced bail out, whilst others never got the chance (one in paticular personally stopped a trio of AP rockets. Ouch.).
Games in future will more likely follow the traditional scenario style format, but as a starting game, this one was FUN!.
