303 Squadron is Live on Kickstarter!

303 Squadron is Live on Kickstarter!

Rick Martin

The Hobbity Company of Poland in conjunction with Ares Games has just put their new World War II Battle of Britain aviation game on Kickstarter and it looks fantastic!

        The Hobbity Company was founded in 2002 by board games fanatics and hard-core gamers, for whom games are not only an excellent way to spend free time in the family circle but also an important Hobby with capital “H”. They have years of experience in the market and work with such companies as Eagle-Gryphon Games, What’s Your Games, Asyncron, Ares Games and many more. 

        303 Squadron promises to be an intense, fast-paced solo or cooperative board game that will push you and your plane to the limits. It is a  1-4 player experience and  is  inspired by true events: players take the role of legendary pilots from the 303 Squadron, to experience epic dogfights against Luftwaffe pilots, and – most of all – to create unforgettable stories. This is the kind of game that sparks those “Remember the time when…” conversations.


        The 303 Squadron was made up of Polish pilots flying for the RAF during the Battle of Britain and was ranked one the most effective squadron in the RAF during the battle based upon kills to losses. It was the highest scoring of the Hurricane squadrons during the Battle of Britain

        Hobbity studied the history of actual squadron pilots and recreated how they fought – and won – against the German invasion. Players take the role of the most famous pilots in the Squadron, including personality differences! These are true heroes who fought for freedom and helped make “Our Finest Hour” come true.

        Marek Przepiórkais is 303 Squadron’s  developer and  MichaÅ‚ Kohmann is it’s author.  Some of their favorite games are Quartermaster General, Twilight Struggle, Lisboa and Fief.

  1. The kickstarter was a big success, with 13 or 14 (I forget) stretch goals reached. MANY of these will be spun off into a for sale expansion after the game hits retail, but you can still get the full kickstarter version (including Stukas, Ju88s, and Do17s) with a ‘late pledge.’
