Item specifics

Condition: New Game: Wargame
Intended Use: GAMING Product Type: Board Game
If you look at the photo you'll see some extra little gems that will extend the life of your B-17 enjoyment.

1st: The Queen in Germany. An expanded mission map (see picture)with targets deep in the heart of Germany itself. Hit Berlin which sits at a range of 10 Zones and then pray you get back.

2nd: Fly all four B-17's (C,E,F and G). The C started in the hands of the English in '41. The E was the first model to have the ball turret and this model was flown by the 8th Air Force in the early days. Finally into the heavy B-17G with the Chin turret and un-painted body.

3rd: The YB-40. This was a heavy Queen. In order to deal with the lack of fighter cover at long range a B-17 or two were converted into "gun trucks". It carried no bombs just extra guns and ammo. It would fly with the formation in an attempt to provide extra cover. It had twin guns in each waist gun position. A Chin gun, and a second top turret in place of the radio room .50, note the photo of the placement board, showing the special guns.

4th: All 25 missions in order as flown by the famous Memphis Belle, displaying the target, date the mission was flown, friendly and enemy losses. Now you can fly the Belle and see if you can make all 25.

The map, YB-40 placement board and Belle missions are printed on hard card stock but are not laminated. Each item above except the Belle missions (no new rules needed for the Belle missions) come with rules explaining how the item is used. The text is printed on regular paper as you would expect.

Shipping discount. If you win multiple B-17 items from me you will pay the full shipping price on the most expensive item and then $1.00 for each additional item. Handling fee is $2.50.

Please contact me if you have any questions. The original B-17 game is needed to use these rules.

Information for anyone that owns B-17 or almost any other board game. There is a free place on the web called VASSAL that allows you to play almost any board game. They just added all the basic B-17 boards and charts. No more setting up the game and having your wife complain or your kids knocking around the counters. VASSAL is free give it a Google.
