Guns Blazing is a stand-alone game and expands the Down In Flames series started with Aces High with more World War 2 action.
Guns Blazing adds 2 new decks of Aircraft cards and the artwork on its 2 decks of Action cards feature these aircraft! The game is based on a unique action-reaction card mechanic. Each card can be countered by specific other cards. At the bottom of every card is the list of cards it is allowed to cancel. This makes for exciting card play back and forth between players…
Player #1: “I Play an In My Sights for 3 Hits. If you don’t stop it, you’re going down.” Player #2: “I counter with a Barrel Roll.” Player #1: “I react with a Yo-Yo.” Player #2: “You got me.” Each aircraft is accurately simulated with a several ratings including: Performance (the maximum cards you can hold), Horsepower (the maximum cards you can draw each turn), Bursts (how many times you can fire), Damage (how much damage your attacks inflict), and Airframe (how much damage your aircraft can sustain). The air combat is simulated using a Positioning system that allows aircraft to be Advantaged, Tailing, Disadvantaged, or Tailed in relation to other aircraft. An aircraft’s position determine if it can aircraft, and how many bonus Bursts it receives if it is Advantaged or Tailing. The game uses a simple Altitude system to add this vital aspect of air combat. Aircraft get to draw cards when diving, and must discard cards when climbing. The game also includes Light, Medium, and Heavy Bombers that are used in the historical campaign games.
