Product Description

The year is 1943. From Asia to England, and all places in between, Axis and Allied pilots put their daring, skill and nerve to the test in a fight for air supremacy; the prize being nothing less than the fate of the world.

In Front Porch Classics' new adventure game, Sortie, players simultaneously play cards that authentically simulate the thrill and exhilaration of World War II dog fighting. Cast metal planes, a segmented wood playing surface and more than 100 playing cards combine to give you a taste of what it was like behind the cockpits of the fighting machines of yesteryear. This dog-fighting game comes packaged in an elegant all-wood, book-style box.

Plays well, good quality pieces
May 15, 2007

I think “Sortie” plays quite well for two to six players. The game itself plays differently depending on how many players there are. The basic rules are quick to learn or teach, and then the airplane character cards define a different rule breaking advantage for each player. The pieces are well made, and the entire game has a very satisfactory feel to it, other than one major complaint and two minor complaints. The main complaint is that the colors of two of the airplanes are hard to distinguish. The first minor complaint is that a marker of the same color for each airplane would be helpful to have in front of each player so that other players would instantly know who had which airplane. The second minor complaint is that the plastic tray has little space for my fingers to get the airplanes out.
