WEFOUNDAce of Aces


Last time I went back to The States, I went through some of my old boxes and found my old copy of Ace of Aces. I still had the original instructions for advanced play in the box, so I have scanned them and put them in my Google drive. Let me know if you have any trouble seeing them. Here's the link:

Looking for a set? Here's one source. I don't know if he has any left, or how much they are, but it's a cool fan site worth checking out.

Here's a video showing a series of plays. I think the Grandpa is the original creator of the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8BF7_ywkI

One of the reasons this book is so expensive to print, is because it is over 200 pages long, and will be heavily used. Thus the binding needs to be sewn, not glued. Also I intend to use the original leatherette style covers, and put the books in a slipcase, similar to the original. Another reason is that I will be printing this in the USA - not sending it out to China or India to be printed.

If you are not one of the people already familiar with this game, it consists of two 200+ page books, which are all you need to play the game. The game simulates a WWI dogfight between a Sopwith Camel (hi, Snoopy!) and a Fokker Dr I triplane. I am only going to print 1000 copies, unless this kickstarter is hugely oversuccessful.

If we double our goal, I'll reprint the Powerhouse Series - Fokker DVII vs Spad XIII. If we triple our goal, I'll reprint the Flying Machines - Airco D.H.2 vs Fokker E. III. If we don't make even our first goal -- Alfred and I will hoist a drink in honor of all the fans, and we will assume that the "groundswell of support" that we have received over the last few years was just the same seven guys contacting us over and over!

L'as des as ( The Ace of Aces ; alternate English title: The Super Ace ) is a 1982 French-German comedy film starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and directed by Gérard Oury .

In 1916, during the thick of World War I , a German and a French fighter ace by the names of Gunther von Beckman (Hoffman) and Jo Cavalier (Belmondo) manage to drag each other out of the sky. An argument and subsequent fistfight about who is to be whose prisoner is rudely interrupted by an artillery barrage, forcing both to stick together in order to survive. In a humorous side scene, corporal Adolf Hitler (Meisner) is berated by his frustrated First Lieutenant Rosenblum for his clumsiness.

The next morning, just before they depart for the stadium for the opening ceremony, Jo re-encounters his old friend Gunther, now a general of the Luftwaffe . He fast-talks Gunther into borrowing his car, which he gives to the Rosenblums for their escape to Austria . Due to a critical blunder on the Rosenblums' part, however, the whole family is caught before they reach the border, and only Simon escapes. The boy phones Gaby, who informs Jo. Torn between his affection for Gaby, his sense of duty for Simon, and the need to see his team in the games (though not in that order), Jo decides to settle the matter as quickly as possible and goes off to fetch Simon.

World War I’s most legendary pilot was born on May 2, 1892, into a family of Prussian nobles. Growing up in the Silesia region of what is now Poland, he passed the time playing sports, riding horses and hunting wild game, a passion that would follow him for the rest of his life. On the wishes of his father, Richthofen was enrolled in military school at age 11. Shortly before his 18th birthday, he was commissioned as an officer in a German cavalry unit.

After the outbreak of World War I, Richthofen served on both the Eastern and Western Fronts as a cavalryman and messenger. He was awarded the Iron Cross for his daring trips along the front lines, but as the war settled into a bloody stalemate, he grew tired of the tedium of life in the trenches. In mid-1915, he transferred to the German air corps, serving first as a back-seat observer and later as a pilot. The switch was anything but smooth—Richthofen crashed during his first solo flight—but his determination eventually caught the attention of Germany’s top ace, Oswald Boelcke, who recruited him for a new fighter squadron known as Jasta 2.

As his tally grew, Richthofen had a Berlin jeweler make him a collection of small silver cups, one for each of the aircraft he shot down. He would eventually acquire 60 of the trophies before a silver shortage forced the jeweler to decline new orders. Like many pilots, he also had the morbid habit of scrounging souvenirs from the planes he downed. Along with the heads of the animals he killed on hunting trips, his home was decorated with fabric serial numbers, instruments and machine guns looted from Allied wreckage. He even had a chandelier made from the engine of a French plane.

Ace of Aces is a flight simulator developed by Artech Digital Entertainment in 1986 . It was published by several companies, however the game was put on two separate media. Accolade published the game on 5.25" disks for Atari consoles, whereas Atari put the game on cartridges for its consoles.

The game takes place during World War II and the player flies a Royal Air Force de Havilland Mosquito long range fighter-bomber equipped with rockets, bombs and a cannon. Missions include destroying German fighter planes, bombers, V-1 flying bombs, U-boats, and trains.
