  • Identify 70's boardgames – Help!
  • Trying to relive some of my youth. I have found Tank Battle which was good. Now I want a ‘board’ game based on the Battle of Britain

    The base was a (Green) plastic moulding. Each side looked like a basic airfield with a runway and an AA emplacement and holes for 6 aircraft. In the middle went a clear ‘acrylic’ screen with a couple of clouds and a sun printed on it. There were lots more ‘holes’ linked by lines.

    You rolled a dice. On a 6 you took off and followed one of the lines until your move was ‘over’. You could then turn the plane so that the next turn you followed a line. You were safe in the clouds or the sun, but anywhere else, if you ‘landed’ on a hole where there was another plane opposite you shot it down (pushed it out by inserting your plane).

    I have googled lots over the last few months and can’t find anything like it

    Can anyone help by at least giving me the name of the game?

    TIA

    Ooh, an hour and no correct answers. Is this the point where we have to turn off the internet as STW hivemind fails??

    We can only hope so. 😀

    Sorry MrSparkle, the shine is missing from your answer. I have found lots of those, but they are a board game played on a flat surface with no vertical Perspex screen in the middle like wot I described earlier

    better off spending 2 mins searching on BGG (the board game equivalent of STW!) like I just did 😀

    Thats it
    😀

    Thanks Zilog. I have spent the morning trawling through a list of MB Games for no reason, it was made by Airfix 😳

    Now I guess I need a bit of patience on eBay….
