BAD MOON RISING
Battle of Firebase Illingworth
April 1, 1970

The 1st Air Cavalry Division’s “in country” reputation was a relatively fortunate one. It had not suffered particularly horrendous losses since its battles in the Ia Drang valley years before. Their luck ran out in March when Charlie Company was caught in a large scale ambush set up by the NVA’s 9th Division’s 272nd Infantry Regiment. Alpha Troop of the 11th Armored Cavalry, after driving off the NVA and rescuing Charlie Company, the combined US force made it back to Fire Base Illingworth, named for one of the heroes of an earlier battle fought by the 1st Air Cavalry.

The survivors of Alpha Troop and Charlie Companies thought they had reached a place of refuge where they could rest, recuperate, and train their newly arrived replacements. However, the NVA saw their opportunity to exact revenge upon the Americans grow with each passing day Fire Base Illingworth remained in place. Little did they know, that those who fought on March 26th had leapt from the frying pan directly into the fire that exploded all around them at 0214 on April Fool’s Day, 1970.

This battle between Russian forces and Chechen rebels. The outcome of the siege was considered a major disaster for the Chechen rebels. Komsomolskoye was completely destroyed by the bombardment. The village, described by one journalist as "looking like a pile of shattered matchsticks—not a single building was left intact," was strewn with rotting corpses and wrecked T-80 tanks and armoured personnel carriers.

September's Eagles

The first Thompson Trophy contest was a six lap race about a course marked by three pylons. As planes became increasingly more powerful and fast, and the numbers of attendees grew by thousands each year, the length and challenge of the race also increased. Nearly each year the number of pylons and size of the race course, as well as the number of laps, were increased. The risk and toll on planes and pilots also rose. From the very first in Cleveland, air racing was marked as the most dangerous of all sports.

September's Eagles recreates the excitement of the Golden Age of Air Racing. The game is for 2-4 players with an Action Card Deck using interactive play to fly the airplanes and wreak havoc among the other players.

Game contents:
54 card Action Deck | 33 Pilot Cards | 36 Plane Cards | 22" x 34" racing map | 36 Plane tokens and various game markers | 16 page Racing Program | 20 page illustrated Rule Book | 4 Player Mats
