I'm not sure what happened with the old save file.  I couldn't open it and when I set up a new version of the game, I couldn't save over it.  Oh well, things are set up as they were before.  (I couldn't get the bomber counters to match their old chit numbers but I tagged them so I know what they were before and what you need to roll to spot them.)


Turn 6.  I've moved the bombers.  You can move your fighter (4MP this turn) and conduct a new radar search.


Here's the map from the end of turn 5.

Ok, I'm guessing that the 1st bomber has moved 15 hexes now.

Move fighter 1, turn right, move one, turn right, move 1.

Sweep 0616

OK.  You still have a radar contact.  You can roll tally if you wish.

No joy.  (Tell your crew to turn their heads or something!)

Turn 7, bombers have moved.  You can move your fighter and radar again.

Ok, forward 1, turn left, forward 2 into hex 0519.

Search hex 0620.

A question (and sorry to interrupt): are there any solitaire variants to this game?

Yes, there is a solo variant for the game.  You can download it here.

There are also some campaign games for the Germans and the RAF available on the Nightfighter page at BoardGameGeek.  They're under the Files sub-heading.

This dice roll has been tampered with!
Rolled 1d6 : 3, total 3

Three 3s?  So much for getting the crew to turn their heads!

Not surprisingly, no tally.

Turn 8.  I've moved my bombers.  You can move your fighter and radar.  (4MP for the fighter this turn.)

Your fighter has moved.  You can see Rabaul harbour just to the south. 

Your radar is still locked on to a contact.

You can make a tally roll now.

No visuals. 

Turn 9, bombers have moved.  You can move your fighter and radar again.
