Once, while at a gaming convention, a friend said that he had the pleasure to meet Mr Borg. He said that Mr Borg said that he had wished that the airplanes in the air pack would have had a larger role, and that he would have had the ground units shoot back at the airplanes. While at a break, I sat down and wrote the first version of what became Rongammers's Air Rules (Rongammer is my "handle" on BGG). They have grown over the years from two pages and no pictures, to six pages with pictures. Thanks to some Polish players, they have also been translated to Polish and are available on BGG in English and Polish. Here is the latest English version;

If you play Memoir 44, you might try some of these house rules sometime!
