We had another game of Purple Heart Valley on Monday. Three of us (each with 4 planes) took on a box of B17s and their Spitfire escorts somewhere over France. The Americans got pretty badly mauled and although several Luftwaffe fighters also went down only one pilot was killed and it is easier to replace planes than pilots!
My one and only Ace chalked up a Spitfire kill to take his score to 10. My other experienced pilot has been stuck on 4 kills for a while and was unable to add to his tally. However another guy with one mission one kill to his name managed to take out 2 B17s and a Spitfire.
These are always lighthearted fun games and this was no exception. I tend to have Monday night games organised a few weeks in advance and so often miss out which is a shame because it is one of the games that I enjoy the most.
