Historicon CY6-athon!

When it came time to register games for Historicon this year, I found myself in a bit of a pickle – I wanted to run a number of Check Your 6! games, but wasn’t sure what days I’d be able to make it to the convention.  However, I figured I’d at least be able to make it for Saturday, so signed up to run three Check Your 6! games back to back to back on Saturday.  We’ll see how my voice holds out through the entire day.  On the plus side, all of the games are on the same table, so I’ll only have to drag out my stuff one time.

Here are my games for this year’s con

S-585 – CY6! – Rude Insult – Port Moresby, New Guinea, 18 May 1942

Facing stiff opposition from the skilled Japanese pilots of the Tainan Air Group as well as their own balky aircraft, the young Americans of the
8th Fighter Group aggressively attacked at every opportunity. On this mission, future ace and flight leader Tommy Lynch scored his first
confirmed kill during a Betty raid against 12-Mile Strip.
