Small blog post about the annual game day in Dayton, Ohio:

Nice write-up. It was a great day of gaming.

Nicely painted miniatures.

Did I read correctly that you played CY6 without plotting?

Yes, one of the games was a no-plot variant of CY6. Each player ran a flight of 3 or 4 aircraft, with each flight identified by a color. The GM would draw poker chips from a bag; when your color came up, you would move your aircraft, using the standard CY6 movement charts, then fire if you had a shot. It seemed to work well, and it played quickly. It allows large battles to be fought much faster than using plotting. It was fun, although I still prefer the standard CY6 rules.

One could have more than one of the same color chip, depending on the quality of the flight leader. So a +2 leader had three chips, allowing a deferment in movement if desired.
