Hi everyone! I just posted an AAR from the recent game of CY-6 that was planed here in Stockholm this week. Swing by and check out the AAR.



Have a great weekend!

Exciting stuff and a most unexpected conclusion!

Great battle report. I'm just getting back into CY6 myself after a very long break and am planning some Pacific fun in the coming weeks.

Very un-spitfire-y thing to do to such a nice plane!
More a Rata thing.
Just finished teaching my son (12) CY6. Learned how to shoot down bombers (1 Flying Tiger P40 vs 3 Sally). Then learned (quickly) with 1 P40 vs an Oscar and a Sally, so we moved right to 2 planes apiece – he is controlling 2 P40's vs 2 Oscars. Great convention and quick pick up game.
He would like to get some other kids involved. We'll tackle Guadalcanal next and then he can 'graduate' to Arab-Israeli Jet Age.

Very nice stuff! Out of interest, where did you get your flying stands?

Agree entirely with the comments re CY6.

As it happens, the cadets and I started our 1942 'Grand Burma Campaign' on Saturday: The first encounter featured 12x Ki-30 'Ann' light bombers, escorted by 8x Ki-27 'Nates' being bounced by 4x Buffalos over Moulmein, with a further 4x Buffalos joining the battle as reinforcements from Mingaladon (they were already en route from Mingaladon and arrived just as the battle started). The result was four Anns and one Nate shot down, plus one Ann severly damaged and limping home, for the loss of one Buffalo and two limping home. The remaining seven Anns managed to plaster Moulmein airfield with bombs before returning to Raheng.

It's an indicator of how easy CY6 is to play, that I can run a game of that size in 3-4 hours with two teenagers after only a few prior games to learn the rules. A superb set of rules!
