Firebirds: Huey

Firebirds: Huey


Firebirds: Huey is a tactical-level, narrative-style solitaire wargame using a tables-based game engine.

As the pilot of either a US Army UH-1H Huey Medevac helicopter, a US Army UH-1H air cavalry troop transport helicopter, or an L-19 Bird Dog pilot, your ultimate goal is to survive a 1-year Vietnam tour of duty during the year 1968, while at the same time either trying to extract and return as many wounded US Army soldiers as you can from ‘hot’ landing zones (LZs), insert/extract US Army Soldiers or Rangers in hot LZs, or spot enemy Viet Cong units in FAC (Forward Air Controller) zones and later call in air strikes to take them out. 

The game includes the following components:

- 3 Tables Books (40 pages total)

- 6 Game Mats (A4 / 8.5 x 11)

- 288 5/8 inch counters

- 1 Crewmen Status Sheet

- 3 Tour of Duty Sheets

- 1 Quick-Start Guide (2 pages)

- 1 Counter Guide (5 pages)

- 1 Game Components Preparation Instructions Sheet

- 5 Game Mat Setup Example Images

* The following dice are required to play: One D20, one D6, and two D10s.

* 5 minute game setup and breakdown times.

* A medium size table is recommended for game setup.

* Total play time to complete a full 6-month tour of duty takes approximately 3-10 hours (depending on game length chosen).

* Adjustable starting difficulty based on player's skill level.

* Please visit the Firebirds FaceBook group. As the designer, I am active there and can provide game support:

With most of the rules integrated into the tables, there is practically no learning curve or rules memorization. And with 3 aircraft types, numerous crewmen skills, mission types, weather effects, terrain types, random events, and a multitude of table modifiers, Firebirds: Huey offers high replay value. Are you up to the challenge of suriving a 1-year tour of duty in Vietnam?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
