Catchaplane is a game  with simple strategies in which Airlines try to fly the most passengers to their destination and cause delays to competitors. Decisions vary between being the first to take to the skies with fewer passengers and land at Frankfurt to pick up passengers in transit or wait to depart with a full complement of passengers and hope to escape the attentions of  competitor airlines. Beware pilots that are not nasty but enjoy a bit of nip and tuck. Watch out for natural hazards, such as the pilot, who loses radio contact while listening to Hotel California on the plane’s radio.

  • Play testing; 

The game was play tested at the UK Games Expo 2017. It was well received apart from one person, who  thought it resembled strategic ludo! Additional game mechanics have been identified, so a considerable amount of play testing remains to be done.
