So, what is Crimson Skies?
The Crimson Skies Universe is based on an air-combat board game set in an alternate history. In Crimson Skies, the year is 1937, the United States has fractured into a number of squabbling nation-states, and daredevil adventures are commonplace (much like the pulp novels and serial cliffhangers of the 1930s and 40s).
This America fell in love with the airplane, not the automobile, and a number of unusual and exotic aircraft designs can be found in this environment. Dastardly villains, beautiful air-privateers and valiant militia forces battle for control of the skies over fractured North America.
What is the Boardgame Like?
Crimson Skies is a fast-playing game, with a focus on streamlined rules to maximize players' enjoyment. Players are encouraged to develop not only a powerful aircraft, but also a colorful pilot.
