Summary expansion
The color illustrated board, foldable into quarters, contains 80 squares, from take-off to landing, that the players--probably German children, but the Dutch title suggests that the game may have also been marketed in the Netherlands--must complete successfully, overcoming 24 difficult obstacles along the way. The board depicts an oceanside airplane hangar and landing strip, a battleship in flames, listing to one side about to sink, a cluster of soldiers firing cannons from defense positions on the beach, and numerous fighter biplanes and one Zeppelin bombing and firing from the sky. Playing pieces are colored cut-out figures of two airmen, two dirigibles, and two biplanes, each inserted into a slot in a wooden base. Rules of the game, printed in old German blackletter, are pasted inside the box lid
