Here are the Final 2 Campaigns! (barring stretch goals)

 

Mission Briefing

Israeli Air Force Leader is a Solitaire game.

A major part of the game is mission planning. You decide how to arm your aircraft and which pilots are best for the mission. Pilots are rated for skill level. Deciding which pilots to fly each mission is a major consideration. Your pilots will become fatigued with every mission. If you fly a pilot too often, his skills will degrade. Your pilots also gain experience with every mission flown. This makes for some great decision-making. Should you keep flying the top pilots and further fatigue them to get the job done, or fly the new guys to prep them for the tough missions ahead?

Missions are quickly resolved using an area movement system to display tactical combat over the target. Priority is placed on speed and realism. You get to resolve every missile launched at enemy bandits, and every air to ground attack against the enemy target. You also get to resolve the enemy SAM, AAA, and Bandit attacks against your aircraft.

While performing each mission, you get to decide how your pilots engage the enemy Bandits, SAMs, and AAA Sites. This makes for some tough choices. The more suppression munitions you haul to the target, the safer your pilots will be, but you will be able to load fewer munitions to destroy the target.

For IAFL, we have created a few entirely new systems. The Invasion Track, Escalation Cards, and Pilot Skills.

As historically Israel has been invaded quite a few times, the Invasion track symbolizes that. Some Target cards have the "Invasion" note on them, and this means that if you do not Destroy the Target that day, it will slowly Invade Israel ramping up Pilot Stress, and costing you precious Special Option points.

 This is the new Invasion Track, and with every Invasion Target that survives throughout the day, your marker will move to the right, suffering that negative, and the previous negatives.

There is also a new Recon track, as Israel is usually being Invaded, the further to the left your Recon track, the more cards you have to Draw every turn. This means the chances of more Invasion Cards being drawn will go up.

For Escalation Cards, these are juicy Targets that give you extra Victory Points, or shift your Recon/Intel/Infra, but they have a cost. If you attack an Escalation Target, you have to draw a card that will severely hurt you.

This is one of 10 possible Escalation Cards you may draw if you attempt to attack the above Target.

Finally, we have Pilot Skills. These are an entirely new idea in the Leader series, these will need a Stretch Goal to be made into a reality, but I know it will happen!

You can purchase Pilot Skill at the beginning of a Campaign, and until that Pilot dies, they have a special ability. These Skills will be made into Counters that will also be able to work with any other Air Leader game.

Risks and challenges

Dan Verssen Games (DVG) has the knowledge and skills to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. We have published dozens of games. If you have any questions or queries, the people at DVG will be here to assist you as quickly as we can. If you would like to see the quality of the games we publish, please visit our website:

www.dvg.com

With several Kickstarter campaigns behind us, we are able to professionally deal with setbacks while keeping you, the backer, informed with what's happening every step of the way - and not just while the campaign is running. When funding closes and production starts, we aim to provide the most up-to-date information possible regarding each stage of the game's journey to your tabletop.

We believe that honesty is as important as regular contact with our backers. You can expect the very best from us, no matter what. As part of our honesty pledge, please be aware that we do not offer refunds after a Kickstarter campaign closes. We need the funds to pay the printer and to purchase the add-ons and stretch goals people have earned during the campaign. If you pledge, and later change your mind, that's okay, but you need to cancel your pledge before the campaign ends.

By working with high quality production facilities that we've dealt with during previous campaigns, we are confident that we'll be able to deliver the game in a timely manner. Our exacting standards mean that you're guaranteed to get a great game.
