Two player card game simulating modern Jet Fighter Air Combat.

Kill all of your opponent’s planes.

Determine how many planes each player has.
In the standard game each side has 2 planes: A flight leader and his wingman.
For a quick game play one-on-one.
A dogfight involving many planes is referred to as a Furball.
Use coins or dice to keep track of planes.

Players share a common deck.
The deck contains six types of cards:
Maneuver, Attack, Defense, Kill, Initiative, Team, and Pilot card types.
All cards also have a point value.
The deck contains one copy of each card in the list.

Each turn has 5 phases:
Tactics Phase
Reflex Phase
Maneuver Phase
Attack Phase
Kill Phase

Each player is dealt 5 cards face up.
Each player draws an additional 5 cards (or 6 cards if you have more planes)
If the deck runs out shuffle the discard and draw from it.

Each player may discard up to 3 cards in his hand and draw replacements.

Players place their hands face up with their other face up cards.
The player with the most points worth of maneuver cards becomes the attacker.
The other player is the defender.
If it is a tie, the turn ends.
Initiative cards may be used as Maneuver cards in the first turn of a game.
After the first turn, Initiative cards are useless.
If a player has two or more planes remaining, he may use Team cards as Maneuver cards.

If the attacker has more Attack card points than the defender has Defense 
card points the attacker scores a hit.
Otherwise it is a miss.

If the attacker scored a hit and he played at least one Kill card, one enemy 
plane is destroyed.
If you win the game, add up the scores on all the Kill cards you used to 
kill enemy planes to get a final “Score”.

Pilot cards are wild cards:
If they are in the initial 5 dealt face up in tactics phase, they count as Maneuver cards.
If they are played from the hand, they are attack cards if you are the 
attacker or defense cards if you are the defender.
