WHAT ARE AERODROME® 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0?

Aerodrome® 1.1 is a simple, easy-to-learn, fun-to-play table-top game of aerial combat in World War I. With simple yet elegant rules, players "fly" colorful models of WWI aircraft, using wooden "cockpit" control panels to determine maneuvers and telescoping poles to simulate multiple altitude levels, and each side attempts to shoot down the aircraft of the other side.

A perennial favorite at conventions, hundreds of convention attendees, club members and individuals have enjoyed playing Aerodrome® 1.1 since 1994; the game is played by groups around the U.S., as well as in England, France, Italy, Greece, Australia, Hong Kong, and Brazil. Aerodrome® 1.1 has won numerous awards, both in the U.S. and England.

Aerodrome® 2.0 - available now - is the adaptation of the 1.1 ruleset to World War 2 aerial combat. The ruleset takes into account the increased speeds and maneuverability of WW2-era aircraft, as well as the greater increased lethality of their weapons; in addition to dogfighting rules, it also includes rules for level bombing, dive bombing, torpedo bombing, antiaircaft fire, air-naval combat and much more, all with a framework that remains easy to learn and is fast and fun to play.

Aerodrome® 3.0 - to be published soon - expands the 2.0 ruleset to Korean War-era aerial combat, from the end of WW2 up to (but not including) the advent of air-to-air guided missiles.
