War in the Jet Age Counter Set
by Eric S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/08/2020 11:18:57

I'm a man of few words... and my wife says "The fewer, The better"; so all I can say... "Excellent work on the counter set and worth every penny... free updates!" You know you have spent more on less. Support the small business/ hobby community. In future I'd like to see perspective TARGET sites... like naval ships, SAM sites, PETRO refineries etc. and maybe an expansion to include Helos. I use my counters to play "Missile Threat" with thick POKER Chips to represent altitude.

War in the Jet Age Counter Set
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/17/2020 12:56:50

This set of modern aircraft is ideal for those air combat afficianados amongst us who can't always afford to buy and paint miniatures or lug them around anywhere.

Each aircraft is a detailed scale drawing of a modern jet fighter (or associated aircraft) rendered in its most common paint scheme and national markings. The set includes both orthogonal and diagonal orientation.

The early board game MiG KiLLERS (from Gamescience) had a counter sheet of diagonal aircraft that enhanced the ability of the player to point the aircraft clearly in the direction it was facing. Other games, such as Wild Blue (Flying Mice Games) and Air War (SPI) used orthogonal markers. In the case of Wild Blue, the orthogonal orientation allowed for easy measurement for movement and maneuvering. War in the Jet Age is flexible enough to work in either concept and the addition of missile markers with exhaust trails is just icing on the cake.

I greatly look forward to more in this series. I anticipate the creator to be hard at work on the likes of the Su-57 Felon, Su-35S (minus canards and in splinter camo), Su-47 Fullback, J-10, J-20, Typhoon, Rafael, Grippen, Draken, Viggen, BAC Lightning, F-106 Delta Dart, SR-71 Blackbird, B-58 Hustler, B-47 Stratojet, B-1 Lancer, B-2 Spirit, F-22 Raptor, F/A-18 E and F and G Super Hornet, F-14D Tomcat, F-35A and B and C Lightning II. What did I miss? Oh yeah, Mitsubishi F-1 and F-2 and all of these aircraft in alternate camo and national markings. Also, ground targets such as SAM sights and convoys would also be nice. I know I missed a bunch.

Thanks for putting out such a great set of useful markers and I hope to see more soon.

Also: As a tip for players, invest in a cheap set of poker chips, and you have a great way to show altitude in a game. If you're playing for larger numbers, use the red and blue chips to indicate multiples of 5 and 10, or use alternate colors to make the chips easier to count for smaller number of altitude games.
