    This month at the Devon Wargames Group saw game five in an eight game campaign of Target for Tonight played, recreating the attack on Hannover on the 22nd-23rd September 1943, as part of our Battle of Berlin campaign.

    The game result turned out very similarly to those produced in the historical attack and leaves our campaign nicely balanced with just three games to go.

    Another great report, thank you.  BC is lucky that only novice crews were lost (though pretty rough on the fresh faces) but drat that wind!  I find this whole game and process really fascinating.  Looking forwards to the next mission already.

    Hi, thank you.

    Yes the random selection of crews and their capabilities adds another level of uncertainty to each op, which, with this one being in fairly close range and with a high turn out of planes, looked like a good opportunity for the bombers to cash in,

    In this case the poor target marking, and crew quality losses combined to make this a fairly neutral game, but an opportunity to increase the lead gone for Bomber Command. It leaves the campaign in an interesting position.

    Tension of that sort should keep the players interested, and maybe even pushing the envelope a little to gain the upper hand.  I am very interested to see if it has an effect on their decision making and play.
