Press info:Wings of War is an exciting new game series which merges card and board game mechanics to recreate, in a simple but accurate way, aerial combat in the XX Century. The first series of Wings of War games will focus on the "knights of the air" age, World War I, with an accurate portrayal of the abilities of the fighting planes of this period.

Airplanes are represented by a single card which is used as a playing piece on any open surface; the players choose and play simultaneously movement cards to decide the actions of the airplane they control. Different planes use different decks of movement cards to represent their different maneuver capabilities, and different deck of "Fire" card are used to take into account their fighting effectiveness and to keep track of damage. Simple to learn, fun to play, infinitely expandable, Wings of War is a series which will appeal to gamers of all ages.
