The publisher of The Boardgamer magazine created five special issues devoted entirely to one game within the Avalon Hill catalog. They were known as Unofficial Player Guides, but were considered the best collection of new information, variants, scenarios, rules variations, errata, inserts, and new articles written for these games. Fans loved the materials, because it delivered new life into a game that was forgotten by Avalon Hill, but still cherished by the players.
This player's guide, the fifth in a series of five, is dedicated to the classic, aerial bomber wargame B-17: Queen of the Skies. It is a must have for any fan of the classic game.
In this guide, published in 2004, the articles include:
* Bombing The Med - Adding the 9th and 12th USAAF and the RAF No. 160 & No. 178 Squadrons
* Command Decisions - In B-17: Queen of the Skies
* In Search of Geographical Accuracy - Or, “Hey Navigator Where Are We?!”
* The Winged Soldiers of ‘44 - A B-17: Queen of the Skies Variant
