Bombers Over Japan, 1944 - 1945
Solitaire game by Steve Dixon and Shawn Rife
B-29 Superfortress is a solitaire game featuring the technologically most advanced bomber of the Second World War - the B-29 - flying as part of the Twentieth Air Force from the Marianas Islands against targets in and around Japan in late 1944 and 1945. The game puts you in the cockpit of a B-29 Superfortress as you fly your missions over Japan. Your goal: sucessfully complete a tour of 35 missions and return home a hero for bringing the war with Japan to a close without a bloody hard-fought invasion of the homeland.
Your missions will be varied: high level, low level, day and night. You will face fighter attacks, flak, searchlight spotting, and bad weather; not to mention damage to your aircraft to include a shattered windshiled and compromised cabin pressure, loss of oxygen supply, damaged landing gear, knocked out navigation or communication equipment, ruptured fuel tanks, inoperable machine gun armament, and just about anything else that can go wrong with a 100 ton aircraft flying 1,500 miles to it's target only to be met with fierce resistance from a determined enemy.

Amazing what you can do with a pile of charts, two dice, and your imagination. A player aid with a turn sequence would be very helpful, though.

Game plays very well and is quite enjoyable. Counter are of very good quality. Board is the only let down to the game. I would of paid more to have the board made of cardboard stock. Otherwise 9 out of 10. Looking forward to buying the expansion in the future.
