    As part of the Air Strike supplement we (Andy C and his playtest group) are looking at making weather more important in historical games. When players are selecting theatre cards in historical games one card per side MUST be an applicable weather card. Where there is a clash of incompatible weather cards dice to see which takes precedence. Note Arctic Conditions and Tropical Conditions are NOT weather cards and cannot be countered by using the Met Office card. We would like players to try them out and report back. Cheers

    I may be wrong but I am convinced that the airstrike supplement will include some (if not all) of the required cards to play the scenarios.
    Regarding the weather related ones, as it’s a new kind of cards, they should definitely part of the package.

    Edit: BTW, the storm clouds weather cards seems to be unnecessary mentioned in both the axis and allied columns for Mediterranean 1943-45 as it is already in the weather cards column.

    Hi – its not a new kind of card, its just a new way of using existing (or planned) cards – good spot on Storm clouds – thats “version control” I think

    I cant comment on the contents of Air Strike as it’s still to be decided.

    @koin-koin – I’m asking for now, not release…
    as theres a few cards in that list that I dont recognise (I only have the starter, Me109, Yak1,Galand, white rose, Falcon sqn & johnny red).

    I find its a bit hard to fully test something if your wondering how it will interact with some elements included.

    @renko – there is a *next to ‘telegram from Stalin’ card without an explanation as to what the * means. I think its for pointing out that its Soviet only, is that right?

    Also … ah if some of the cards in the lists are to be released that might be some of my confusion.

    @Nat sorry for missing your point. My post was a general observation.
    I’m not part of the ‘first circle’*, just a forum member trying to share his thoughts.

    Your point is pretty relevant to me. Not everyone goes full throttle on the BRS releases.

    *Just a wording, no scorn intended 😅

    Hi Nat – yes “Telegram..” is the only card so far restricted by nationality
