"Good point, Ken! I did not think about that. More charts on the board will clutter it, perhaps already too many charts. My thought behind the charts on the board is that you can keep the booklet aside as long as possible, when the first necessary…"

"Magnus, I think it redundant to put so many charts on the combat board. That's what the charts booklet and rules are for. Just place these tables in the booklet. You'll have to print them anyway, so the booklet is in no way compromised.…"

"Two More Tables on the Combat Board? I think that the Combat Table is good with the Flight Manual Sections you have on the left, the Crew Placement Board on the right and the selection of tables you can find on it. However, there are two tables have…"

If you'd like to test fly B-26, please send me a message. There are three positions open for brave play-testers!

The B-26 has arrived in the European Theater of Operations. It has now joined the B-17, B-24 and the Lancaster over the skies of war torn Europe...

Martin B-26 Marauder: The Wingless Wonder was the name of a variant of Avalon Hill's B-17: Queen of the Skies solitaire boardgame. A draft of B-26 was available for play testing which used the B-17: Queen of the Skies rules and B-17 was needed to play. Everything has changed since then, and B-26: The Marauder Strikes! has completly new mechanics and is a stand alone game. It is a solitaire game set on board a Martin B-26 Marauder medium bomber during World War Two in the European Theater of Opearations from July 1943 until the end of the war in May 1945. 

Players familiar with B-17: Queen of the Skies or B-29 Superfortress: Bombers over Japanrecognize the mechanics used in B-26In some ways it can be quicker to play a mission, but at the same time it can seem to be "dice-ee-er" than its companions. B-26 is, with its advanced and optional guidelines, deep, detailed and complex, but still as easy to play as B-17 or B-29 with its basic system which is similar to the mechanics in B-17 or B-29.

Planned add-ons: Low-level missions, 22nd Bomb Group - Marauders from Oz, 319th Bomb Group - Invaders from Okinawa, A-26 Invader, A-20 Havoc... and more. Go to http://www.themarauderstrikes.magnuskimura.se/ for more information.

I am looking for the rules update for B-29. What is the user ID and password for the variant page for the 30th Bomb group. I am looking for the updated rules for the game.
