Crimson Skies (2003) by Wizkids

Thank goodness for clubs, that's all I can say, as well as to friends who have old games they are happy to part with.  How did I end up with Crimson Skies you may ask?  Well it's a long story... no not really.  When I posted my articles about my board game collection another friend on facebook mentioned his desire to obtain the pen and paper board game version of Crimson Skies.  I posted an expression of interest out there seeking a copy of him, what I got was a friend asking if I wanted his sets of the clix version of the game.  Being the hoarder and collector I could not help myself, I said yes, the price was more than fair and it is now with me waiting for a chance to be played sometime in the future...

Some closer shots of the contents, not the best, sorry in advance.

Based on the above chart I'm only missing the planes below the "Never Released" section.  From my days of running organised play events for Wizkids I'm going to have a punt and guess the last six planes were prize support and clearly the last a promotional. While it would be nice to get them all, I'm not busting a gut these days.  CMGs or anything collectable has passed me by, sure it will annoy the hell out of me that it's incomplete, but I can now live with it.  Who knows, I may even complete it on the off chance, like picking up this game like I did this weekend just past!

Till next time, keep gaming!
