633 Squadron
« on: November 09, 2018, 10:50:27 AM »
I know this is probably an unanswerable question, but i remember attending a UK wargames show back in the 80s, think at the old snooker place, where there was a 633 Squadron Game, one player trying to get a hit on the Factory, whilst the umpire ran a programmed defence, so my question is, does anyone know what the rules were, or even have a copy?

Best film theme ever!  :D

The great Ron Goodwin orchestra (who also did Where Eagles Dare, another classic).  ;D

My brother had it on a 45" record and we played it endlessly whilst acting out  the aerial combat scenes. Happy days! lol

It was Shaun from the Bunker. Home-brewed rules.
He occasionally loiters on here.

I'd love a copy of the rules if they're still available. We're doing 633 Squadron for the Crimbo Wargame with Corgi diecast Mossies whizzing down a fjord and bombing the mountain.

I was hoping for a battle of wits, but you appear to be unarmed

Round about 1:144, wingspan about as wide as your hand.
