"Storm Above the Reich" is a solitaire wargame depicting a Luftwaffe squadron of Fw190s struggling to deter and destroy the relentless daylight raids over Germany during World War Two. Player’s individual aircraft, each represented by a stickered block, must confront the mighty “combat box” formation of the United States Army Air Force, a deadly terrain of B-24 Liberator heavy bombers. Like its counterpart, Skies Above the Reich, the game is a broad strokes depiction that represents the arc of the desperate air war. Stretching from late 1942 to early 1945, Storm Above the Reich follows that trajectory through a series of missions strung together to make a campaign. Each mission takes a half hour or more to play, while a campaign will last anywhere between 6 to 60 missions.

Stand-Alone and an Expansion: "Storm Above the Reich" is a stand-alone game; you do not need "Skies Above the Reich" to play. However, it can also act as an expansion for that game. Storm uses the same rules as Skies, and components in one game will transfer seamlessly to the other. Combined, Storm and Skies give eight formation maps, six pursuit maps, B-17s and B-24s. In Storm, you get an oversized staffel of 18 Fw190s, with the possibility of augmenting it into a Sturmbocke staffel. In Skies, you get a staffel of Bf109s, and with the games combined, the staffels may also be combined.
