      Hmm. An 18 card version of Planecrafters...? Nah, maybe not, but something with planes...

      Awesome game! Good luck with your campaign!!! We want our game soon!

    4. Paisley Board Games Creator 1 day ago

      @Jonathan Good luck with GenCant - it's always sounded like a lot of fun to me. I'd love to give your game a shot, 18 cards and dogfighting is intriguing. Thanks for sharing our campaign on your social media groups, and thanks for your enthusiasm!

      @creator No way! That's a crazy coincidence. I haven't ever met anyone outside of military base interactions that was crew or related to crew of the B-52. I wish that I was coming to Gen Con but alas! I will be trying to submit my game to the GenCant 18 card contest so if up want to try the PnP before then I'll gladly send it to you.
      Also let's get this thing funded! I'm going to start sharing some things about this on social media and in my gaming groups!

      @Jonathan My father was also USAF - B-52 Navigator / Electronics Warfare. I hope to see your game when it's ready - or if you'll be at GenCon we might be able to meet up.

    8. Jonathan Weaver 3 days ago

      @creator My dad was a pilot in the USAF and my son loves planes as well so I couldn't resist.
      Also, I am currently designing a WW2 dogfighting game and I immediately loved the art and goofy planes of this game!

    9. Paisley Board Games Creator 3 days ago

      Thanks @Adhil! We're pretty excited too!

    10. Adhil Riad Patel 3 days ago

      Almost at 400 backers. Going along nicely. Looking forward to seeing this game made.

      @Gianluca That is a great quote!

      @ekster The objective cards were something we were testing, but realized we needed a lot more testing / refining before we put them into production. We still need to balance the value versus the difficulty, and work out the synergism.

    12. ekster 4 days ago

      Out of curiosity, the rulebook contains "20 mini sized objective cards" that I don't see mentioned anywhere. Is that something that's still part of the game or were they removed?

      @Creator I give you another aviation quote for the technical isntitute of Aeronautics of Pisa (Italy) "Just give me an engine powerful enough and I'll make a couch fly"

      It is actually the engineering branch motto :D

      We hit 50% in the first 48 hours! Woot! Here's another aviation quote:

      "Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible."

      Eddie Rickenbacker (WWI American fighter ace in World War I and Medal of Honor recipient)

    15. Paisley Board Games Creator 6 days ago

      @Kevin Thanks! Yes, it's definitely something we have thought of, and would like to include. We wouldn't, however, want to include anything incomplete.

      Just wondering if a Solo Mode is in your (flight) plan? :)

      Best of luck with your first KickStarter! Looks great fun!

      To celebrate another milestone - 300 Backers! Here is another aviation quote:

      Sometimes, flying feels too godlike to be attained by man. Sometimes, the world from above seems too beautiful, too wonderful, too distant for human eyes to see. --Charles A. Lindbergh

      On a side note, and a cool aviation connection, my great grandfather was on duty guarding the Spirit of St. Louis the night before Lindbergh took off on his famous trans-atlantic flight.

    19. Paisley Board Games Creator 6 days ago

      The cards are 300gsm greycore (standard) - until we unlock the appropriate stretch goals - 310gsm ivorycore, then 310gsm blackcore.

      What´s the quality of the cards? are they black core? linen finish? ; )

    21. Paisley Board Games Creator 6 days ago

      Well then, there it is.

    26. Paisley Board Games Creator 6 days ago

      @Mark, the PnP (Investigator) pledge is included with the Ace Pilot pledge.

      No PnP with the physical copy? The only thing keeping me out of the Ace pledge is no playing early with the PnP.

    28. Paisley Board Games Creator 6 days ago

      Thank you @Gianluca, @Laurent1974, and @Timothy!
      @Joan - that cracked me up!

      Good luck for the campaign! I hope the founding goal, as realistic as it surely is, is not too high... it will take time to be reached ( at least 600 backers or so, pretty nice already for a rather simple game), which may lead to low dynamic after the 48h launch period. Let's hope & see!

      Order of Events:

      -Got Andrew's email saying this had launched
      -Clicked to campaign page and pledged
      -Looked through page to see what I had just pledged for

      After Everdell and Lightning & Bolt my trust was absolute. Now that I’ve combed through all the details I’m somehow even happier. I think the nephews will just love this too- will we be able to add another copy?

    32. Gianluca Casu 7 days ago

      Ryan Laukat brought me here! This gam,e has charming art and a nice engine building. Plus Marx Brothers humor. I do not ask more. Am in!

      Okay, since we hit 200 backers, here's another aviation quote:

      Backed. Good luck on what looks to be a fine design.

    36. Paisley Board Games Creator 7 days ago

      Just thought I'd share some aviation quotes once in a while here. I particularly like this one because it really applies well to gaming, and life in general.

      Thank you @David!
      Thank you @Eric!
      Thank you @Big Tom - we appreciate the rally cry!

    49. Big Tom Casual on June 12

      Love nice clean design work and themes that break away from the traditional tabletop space. Wishing this all kinds of success.

      Tell your friends folks! These type of projects deserve and need that type of community outpouring to get the attention they deserve.

      Backer #12 here, wishing you guys clear skies and much success! Over and out!
