Addictive WWI Dog Fight Game: Based on Blue Max Rules

Found this WWI Air Combat game and it is addictive ;)

A FREE online games based on the infamous Blue Max (which was evolved further into the Canvas Eagles roles)

Tally Ho

So far I have been shot down in three games out of the eight I have started, but there's a motto somewhere in there to help me. Watch out for a crazy late war German plane called the Siemans Schuckert D.IV that is incredibly maneuverable

Checked it out looks too slow for my tastes I was hoping for something more real time

I should have said that Blue Max is a turn based game that simulates the relational aspect of air combat and is not a flight simulator model.

It can play quite fast in a face to face environment but in the PBEM it is a back burner "fun" once a day email exchange


I can understand the frustration if you want avfast response especially if there are 4+ players in different time zones

Hmm, following my last comment I would shy away from large games (6+) as they seem to have a trouble starting, before they are timed out

Despite the set-up looking "fantastically" hectic
