The Red Baron Fight is the Indy Squadron's annual Dawn Patrol board game that recreates the last fight of Germany's famed "Red Baron," Manfred von Richthofen.
Players frequently fly their most accomplished pilots and are encouraged to do so in what has historically been an epic challenge. Merely surviving a Red Baron Fight is a badge of honor for any pilot.
The winner receives the Indy Squadron's Silver Goblet.
Stephen Dale is the defending champion, with Ethan Skinner and Rick Lacy winning the goblet in 2012 and 2013. The last player to win back-to-back titles was Michael Morgan, who became only the third player in history to accomplish the feat in 2009-2010.
The game will be held at the FREE, NO-ADMISSION-CHARGED WhosYerCon Indianapolis gaming convention taking place this weekend. Here are the details:
