The A/B-26 Invader was a fast twin-engined light bomber and ground attack aircraft capable of carrying a large bomb load. Designed and built by the Douglas company, it was the successor to their A-20 Havoc, one of the most successful and widely operated Allied types of World War II. Originally designated as the A-26 it was re-designated in 1948 as the B26, when the attack role 'A'prefix was retired, and the B-26 Marauder was taken out of service.

The aircraft was built in two basic versions - The A-26B with a solid gun-nose containing a battery of six 0.50 calibre machine guns, later increased to eight, and the A-26C's 'glass' nose with a Norden bombsight for medium-altitude precision bombing.

MIND GAMES: The Psychology of Board Games

What is the mind? For the ancient Greeks, the idea of the mind was synonymous with the concept of “soul.” Plato believed the psyche was immortal and became wiser and more perceptive after death. More recently, Freud and Jung refined the idea of seele (soul) as a subset of the overall psyche, that which governs thought and behavior — in short, personality. As a game designer and armchair psychologist, I am fascinated by what makes games tick. But even more, I love to discover what makes players tick. Games are products of the human mind, and the mind is the arena on which the contest is played.
