S.55 – Wings over the Atlantic was created to tell the story of the individual and mass transflights that, in the 1920s and 1930s, showed how planes could cross oceans and become a useful means of transportation for passengers, cargo and mail by connecting continents. The exploits of Francesco De Pinedo, Italo Balbo and other Italian and foreign pioneers come alive in this game for 1- 5 participants
Everyone makes their own cruise trying to be faster than the others, but at the same time preserving their airplanes from accidents and unforeseen incidents. The basic rulebook is also suitable for casual players, but it is accompanied by a set of advanced and optional rules for true enthusiasts who desire more realism.
The game maps represent the historical routes of oceanic transflights from the 1920s-1930s. Rich in cartographic detail and at a scale of 1:10000000, they feature an interactive system that can influence the game through a weather conditions system.
3 decks of cards, allow you to influence the game, through attack and defense actions and special cards. With original photographs and accompanying historical texts, they guide the game with a choice of basic and advanced rules.
Get comfortable in the pilot’s seat, strap on your flyer and get ready to fly across the ocean! Each player has his or her own dashboard, where he or she selects at each turn the goal to be reached, the fuel and the performance of his or her plane or fleet, safe from the prying eyes of your opponents.
