Day one of BackYard Con kicked off with me dusting off the rules of Dawn Patrol from the gaming shelf and give them another read through. It’s been a long while since I played a game, I think Pierre Trudeau was Prime Minister back in the early 80’s. Though, I’m glad to have this bad boy in my gaming collections and that’s all thanks to Chance who happened to stumble upon it when he was working out West. Though the 32 Charts & Cards book had been gutted out and over the half the book is missing. Everything else is still there…. especially the counters.
So Day One was spent reading through the rules, rolling some dice to get a feel for the computer and moving a few counters around the map in a mock dogfight.
