This should really be higher on my list as it's a brilliant game. Part of my measurement of how high something is on the list is how often I want to get it out. As a long game this is where it suffers. Every time I play this it feels epic and you really feel like you're there storming the beaches with your troops. It suffers because of its big brother which appears higher on the list.

Number 11

The rest of the family is 11.1, 11.2... This is a show of genius. So much so that, sight unseen I have preordered the latest game from Butterfield.

I remember coming back from Omaha Beach and looking at the map of this game and understanding the design decisions.

Gameplay : Solo play only ; lightly card-driven.

Graphics : beautiful map and functionnal, intuitive ; counters use a NATO-like code, will add to the difficulty.

Replayability : highly replayable.

Difficulty : the game can be hard on the player ; landing on the beaches is the first hard task, and it can be cut short rapidly.

Gamelength : 480 min

Theme & Lore : WW2 ; the difficulty of the game is dependant on the context. Highly immersive gameplay and narrative follows, depending on the player.

Pro : "real" solo wargame with hexes ; very solid gameplay
Con : complexity of rules, gamelength (cat...) ; poor quality of production
Wish-meter : 2/5 (but looks more like 1/5)

I've wanted a solo war game for a long time. This game has been very difficult to find when I've had the money to buy a copy, and I worry that it might just be a little too complicated to actually enjoy it. I managed to pick up a copy of Cruel necessity which scratches the itch and is also a very good game. I hope this will be a charity shop find one day.

Like finding a stack of Playboys from the 70s, it's "Out Of Print Playing With Yourself Time!"™



A veritable kaleidoscope of death, grinding frustration, and "interesting map design choices" await in the inexplicably popular solo game D-Day at Omaha Beach. Storm (very, very slowly) the Normandy beaches! Spend three turns climbing a cliff only to die immediately upon reaching the top! Watch helplessly as the current washes your tanks away! Play half a game! Or (unlikely) be the first person ever to play the full game!! Comes clipped and organized in two GMT counter trays.

--

Also included in case you have "friends" you can play against:

This pristine (unplayed, but clipped) copy of the game about which Marco Arnaudo said "I don't dislike it immensely," Blood & Sand.



-and-

This slightly battered (though unpunched and unplayed) copy of the game Marco Arnaudo called "disappointing... underwhelming... very linear," Mercury/Market Garden



I will cover shipping to wherever.

Thank you for your consideration!

It can be done co-op, but this is pretty much a solo game. And it's HARD! Make no mistake about it. This game will massacre your troops even before they get to see the sandy beach of Normandy!

Entirely card driven. No dice required.

Pretty hard to acquire now.

Just completed my first *real* game of this after several aborted attempts to learn the game. Based on my first few forays, I didn't do all that badly but did lose the game due to catastrophic losses on Turn 14.

Had I not lost due to casualties, I would have had no chance to win the game on VP. I had cleared 2 WN positions and half of the green WN but just couldn't do anything against the rest of them. Of course, next time I may fare better given I am now aware of hexsides across which I cannot attack. That de-railed my thoughts more than once.

Also, didn't get a hero until Turn 13 which was kind of moot at that point.

I almost gave up on this game several times but now that I'm starting to get it, I'm glad I stuck with it. It's worth the effort.

I got 4 games in using DG’s computer version of the game. The only significant difference I see is that the losses are randomly assigned. One narrow win out of the four games. Managed to get just enough units off the map.

Now that the cat has done his job, I'm onto D-Day at Omaha Beach. One of my favorites, but I do like the other two more (because of the increased difficulty)

I'm looking forward to D-Day Stalingrad and D-Day Iwo Jima when they come out.

As for this game, I'm through the first wave and I've been able to secure the East and Central, however the West still in the hands of the Germans.

I'm now trying to decide what to do with the reinforcements coming in. Do I spread them out, or do I risk the bottleneck to try to do a big push off the beach early? I tend to be a "Go big or go home" kind of guy, so I'm guessing I'll be going for it.

thumbsup A automation of the game that reduces the bookkeeping

I decided to switch back over to D-Day at Omaha Beach to give my mind a break from OCS. I love my new game room.

I'm picking up on turn 18. I've suffered 7 losses with the 1st Division and I'll need to be careful here. On the plus side, I have control of the two Draws and I should be able to move my forces quickly inland.

In the West I haven't suffered the same kind of losses, but the germans still have control over the far West side of the map and it's going to take some work to dislodge them.


In the end I was able to move up the center of the map and take control of those VP hexes. I was able to keep the Germans out of communication so the 352 units that are typically able to retreat were not able to. The last 5 turns or so no reinfocements were available.

The down side to the campaign was that the Germans were able to keep me close to the Beach in the far West. I had a could of turns where I was able eliminate the unit, but a reinforcement showed back up before I was able to put the hex out of communication. I made a last push North, only to have the only 352 that retreated come back onto the board to stop my advance.


Also in the East there were several units that kept reducing my units and it wasn't until the very end when I started to eliminate them. However, there wasn't enough time to take the VP hexes there.


In the end I scored 40 VP. I thought I was much higher than I was, but I failed to get any units off the board and the hold up on the far ends of the map made this difficult. Still, a Tactical Allied Victory.

Overall I do like this game, but I prefer the other two titles more. While the other two are very difficult to win (and Butterfield has even published rule changes to make it more practical to win) this one I feel is missing a little something.

I can't wait for D-Day Iwo Jima and when I saw that a D-Day Stalingrad (Stalingrad Onslaught) was coming out!!!

I've had this one set up in the basement the last 3 nights.

I finished the first 16 turns last night.

I had 23 points. wow

Okay, if we're going to be technical, I have -10 for Naval Bombardment and -5 for successful tank landing.

But, you know, I'd like to think that I maybe did some good out there, too.

I need to read the rules for the extended game before I can continue, but I'm looking forward to getting everyone off the beaches and into the fields and towns of France. Especially since Ryan & Patton's crew has been storming east already and I need to catch up!

Edit Got in about 5 or so turns last night. Wow, things get difficult once you hit the high ground!

I'm not sure if I'm playing the new enemy fire rules correctly because they've been Resupplying almost every turn. There's only 2 Division chits left over before every reinforcement has been played. Is that normal?

I've got a metric boatload of infantry on the highground, but they are stuck in the bocage, constantly fighting their way for each hex. The good news is that means no WN reinforcements as my backs are to each pillbox. The bad news is I haven't gotten anyone near any of the exits for VPs. My armor and artillery are slowly making their way up the mined streets: I have a feeling once I have access to the Barrage action, things might get easier as maneuvering will be faster with more disrupted enemies.

But of course!

Played the intro scenario "Easy Fox," which only covers the morning assault of the 1st Division on the eastern half of the beach. Not easy for me, game lost on Turn 14 (out of 16) due to "catastrophic losses" (8 companies destroyed or decimated). But the valiant boys of the Big Red One did manage to knock out one Widerstandnest and surround another.



My initial feeling is that the plaudits for this game are well-deserved. Staying on my table, "First Waves" scenario (covering assault of both the 1st and 29th Divs.) is next.

What is going on at SGoYT?!

Today is the anniversary of D-Day!! Just a couple years ago we would have 6-7 entries for this game on this day! Let's get those troops ashore!

Unfortunately, while my boys got ashore, Bradley (that's me) did a poor job of directing them. Pretty good penetration but way too many WNs were bypassed, so I didn't clear ANY draws.

Total VP: -1 Decisive defeat
