This game takes inspiration from the great air races of circa
1908 to 1913 which took place in the pioneering era of Air travel. These air
races galvanised interest across the world and encouraged by generous prizes by
Newspapers and other sponsors attracted international entries
Air travel was risky and most unreliable. Often only a small number of the
entrants would make it to the finish line. Will one of your pilots manage to
face up to the challenge? But watch out: In this era of gentlemanly behaviour
and stiff upper lips there are a few cads and bounders who will cheat
In Magnificent Flying Machines the winner is the person who ends the game
with the most victory points. These can be earned in various ways including
being the first to land successfully on a certain terrain tile, landing on the
middle airfield, transporting cargo or passengers or performing trick
manoeuvres. Simply being the first to cross the finishing line is unlikely to be
enough on its own to secure a victory. The winner will be the player who picks a
strategy that best matches the abilities of the pilot and features of the flying
machine they are using.
