In this screen you can see German aircraft approaching on the right and an "event flag". These flags pop up as the action unfolds, and it gets pretty hectic at times!
You can micro-manage tactics, shown above is one type of intercept option.
Play by email is fully supported and well suits the chess-like nature of the game. It is turn -based with events unfolding in real time once both sides have entered their decisions. You can zoom in and out on the action. You can set up for a 1 day event or elect to play out the whole 6 weeek campaign. Based on the reputation of Grigsby this will be good value for the board game crowd.
