The Milton Bradley Dogfight board game is a vintage board game published by the American company Milton Bradley during the 1960s.

 

Background

The game was part of the American Heritage Command Decision Strategy series of games, published by Milton Bradley from 1961 until 1965. The series focused on real-life historic battles involving U.S forces, with five games released in total. The final game in the series was released in 1975, to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the American War of Independence, and the rest of the earlier 1960s titles were also re-released.

Dogfight was the third of the games to be released, in 1962, and was based on early aerial combat during World War I.

The game can be played by 2 – 4 people, each of whom controls a squadron of 3 bi-planes (either American or German). These planes are then moved using a hand of Squadron Manoeuvre cards, with added bonuses earned for shooting down enemy planes and destroying opponents on the ground.

Along with the playing board, cards, counters, planes and anti-aircraft guns, the game also came with a detailed booklet explaining some of the historical information behind the game.

How much is a Milton Bradley Dogfight board game worth?

Titles from the American Heritage Command Decision Strategy series are now popular with vintage game collectors, but as with all board games value depends on condition.

Good condition examples with their components and boxes intact can sell for up to $40 on auction sites such as eBay.
