Product Description

Welcome to France! ACES OF VALOR is a solitaire game where you command a fighter squadron on the Western Front during World War I through a campaign of multiple missions to score as many victory points as possible to assist the war effort. You can play as the Germans, or one the Entente powers (British, French, or Americans). Each aircraft counter represents the pilot and the aircraft combined, and your squadron will have up to eight at any given time.

The player chooses the campaign’s duration (8, 12 or 16 missions), and draws a card to determine the objective of each mission, which includes patrols, trench strafing, photo recon, artillery spotting, balloon busting, and bomber escort. The player’s flight moves across a gridded map that is a semi-historical representation of the Western front. Anti-aircraft fire is heaviest near the trenches but can happen anywhere over enemy territory. When combat occurs, aircraft are moved to an “Initiative Track” for up to three rounds of combat, where pilot skill, aircraft performance, and luck all come into play to determine the outcome.

The player earns mission points by destroying enemy aircraft and ground targets, and also by escorting bomber and 2-seater aircraft on successful bombing, photo reconnaissance and artillery support missions. When the flight lands, mission points are converted to victory points or used to repair and replace aircraft as well as upgrade aircraft to newer, better models. The goal is to earn enough victory points to achieve a minor, major or strategic victory.

  1. Very pleasantly suprised 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 3rd 2023

    I've played a lot of solitaire games in my life from the old Avalon Hill games B-17 and London Burning to the present. When I got the game and opened it up a feeling of trepidation overcame me. I didn't want another bookeeping game and/or some kind of abstract artsy thing. Then I read the rules and started playing. Very straightforward rules, excellent looking counters.But the combat is the heart of the game. Simple, intuitive, elegant. One of my favorite mantras in life is "Beauty is in the simplicity". A few minor things I would done differently but it's hard to argue with the final product. Very good game, highly recommended.

  2. A really fun solitaire game 5 Star Review

    This is a fun solitaire wargame. It isn't overly complex, and a mission can be played in around 30 minutes. Lots of fun and replay ability.

  3. Great Looking Game 5 Star Review

    Product appearance is top notch! My first play through for learning purposes went well. Will do it a couple of more times then try out a campaign!

  4. Lead your squadron over the Front in Style! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 19th 2023

    This is a great game overall! Legion has definitely raised the bar when it comes to aesthetics with an immersive game board and components. The design mechanics and play through is easy to learn, straightforward and fun. Three different campaign lengths offer different challenges, and missions are determined by random card draw. Optional rules and post mission perks and challenges offer lots of replay potential in this attractive abstract of aerial warfare over the western front. Though the choice of nations, planes, and missions are somewhat limited, I could easily see future expansions in terms of new theatres of operations, mission cards, and aircraft. Highly recommended for those interested in First World War air combat, overall this is a solid addition to the Legion Wargames library. Well done!
