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.
