I think there is supposed to be an Aircraft image for the ACE, instead of
the Marshall image presently shown.

As for the game itself, it appears that a great deal of thought has gone
into its design.  At a glance, it seems to be extremely challenging and
original.  I cannot rate the game accurately at present as I have not
played it or seen it played... but I would not be surprised if it turns
out to be a very good game... and so for now will go with my conservative
hunch of 'good.'

In regard to another comment about towns and lots of verbage in the intro,
perhaps that text could be condensed in the intro, but be presented in its
entirety (or even further expanded) as an Appendix at the end of the
notes?  That way players that don't care about historical or theoretical
detail can skip it (won't even see it up front) while those who like such
information can eagerly skip to the Appendix in the notes section.

A really overly-complicated game for which strategy and planning will be very obscure. And who cares what English town each file stands for? This is just self-indulgence. It seems like Charles Gilman just wants to make as many CVs as possible and therefore makes a lot of bad ones.
