In the world of Glider Pit Gladiators,
Two to six players control primitive gliders descending into a deep, sheer-walled pit. Within this natural arena the glider pilots engage in ritualistic, nonlethal gladiatorial combat. A combination of martial and flying skills is required for success in the glider-pit. Every decision a player makes, from the selection of weapons to the anticipation of fickle air currents, can be the first step down a road to glory… or disaster.
I think that this would make a really good and visually striking miniatures game.
Years ago, GDW used to hand out copies of a simple Frank Chadwick game called Battle for Moscow. I’ve got a copy, and have used it to introduce players to board style hex wargaming. If you dont’ have a copy of this classic, you can download it here.
