We played the game in two phases. Phase I -- the approach, was a German victory as the bombers reached and attacked their target for the loss of one escorting Me 109, while downing one Spitfire.
Phase II saw the German players' attempt to return to France, pursued by the Spitfires. Both bombers were lost on the return flight for the loss of a second Spitfire.
