Very rare Sopwith Board Game made by Gamer - board states 1978 copyright Dave Dyer and instructions state copyright David Dyer 1978/1985. This excellent military wargame comes 100% complete and in very good condition considering it's age. A lot of the tokens appear to be unpunctured (please see pictures) the game may not have been played. Rules are included. The board does have some marks on it mainly to the corners which look age related - still in good condition though.

About the Game:

Sopwith is a game of skill, surprise and strategy in which each player takes the role of a World War 1 fighter pilot. The game features a novel system of play which allows all players to secretly and simultaneously plot the movement and firing for their aircraft for the forthcoming turn (using the Control Panels printed on the board - hidden behind the cardboard screens provided). The Control Panels are then revealed and the plotted moves are acted out on the central area of the board one step at time. All players are involved in the game at all times - there are no separate turns for each player - and thus no waiting for your turn to 'come round'.

For 2 to 6 players and offers a basic version for beginners and younger players, and a choice of optional rules for more experienced players. 

For age 9 years to adult.

Contains extra counters and markers.

The object of the game is to be the sole surviving player after all of the other players planes have been destroyed.

This game won Best Wargame at the London Games Fair in 1987.

WW1 Aerial Combat game.
