Looking to trade this + The Battle for Normandy Expansion

Looking to acquire Andean Abyss and A Distant Plain


BFN is in very good condition, punched and clipped. Box solid.

I'm thinking we could start with a small scenario.

Teach? Sure, but you'll have to check for errors on my part.

Method: Vassal and Skype to start, possibly PBEM after we get going.

When? Weeknights or Saturdays after 9pm Eastern.

Joseph and I called our learning Cherbourg game. As the Americans I got his Corps HQ and 2 divisions cutoff from supply. This game is brutal on formations that get surrounded and cutoff.

We started the Bloody Omaha scenario next in preparation of starting a campaign game. This is also pbem Vassal. Pictures will be forthcoming.

We are on June 20 turn.

Just finished the American a.m. turn. This is being played via Vassal, mostly pbem. I am close to pocketing most of the 709th division. Still to win I have to get into Cherbourg itself. This is a learning game for Joseph. I am hoping to start a campaign game with him at some point.

So I owe Santa Grogs a huge thank you and an apology for being off the grid over the holidays and not posting here sooner.

I can't express how excited I am at receiving Battle of Normandy--a game I have been pinning after since it came out in 2009. But, not only did SG send this, personally wrapped, but he also sent me the expansion.


And he didn't stop there. Having the insight that he does as SG, he knew that I game with some serious SW fans (my kids) and he also sent me the some x-wing miniatures expansions.




Thanks SG and happy new year to all.

He is the Germans and I am the Americans. Joseph is learning the game still. We are playing some practice scenarios before trying to play the campaign. This is my first time playing a game with Joseph and he has been great to play with. We finished the first day and will be starting the 2nd day A.M. turn next time we get together.

This still reigns number 1 for me as a playable monster game.

Arguably the best "big dumb wargame/lower complexity monster" on the Normandy campaign, particularly when paired with The Battle for Normandy Expansion; with that expansion, it's only competitor is The Longest Day and this title is better. Map and component graphics make it a cleaner play experience than anything else out there.

Date Added: April 2014

Status: Not there yet

Last Month: 78

This Month: 82

Change: +4

The Battle for Normandy is a game that represents the climactic campaign in Normandy from D-Day, 6 June 1944 to the first week of August 1944 at primarily battalion level. Numerous scenarios are included to play out various smaller battles in Normandy. It is intended for two players or player teams.

The game uses a unique sequence of play and a system of fire combat throughout the airdrop and beach assault phases with company-level breakdown units, then a more traditional odds-type combat approach throughout the rest of the game. Initial beach defense deployments at start and daily air support and defense allocations, hidden to the opposing player; create a level of uncertainty that makes for a tense, challenging duel.

The game combines a detailed, extensively researched order of battle with relatively fast-playing game mechanics to make it not only the largest representation of the Normandy campaign available to date, but a manageable one that is meant to be played, not shelved. Scenarios include ‘Bloody Omaha’, ‘Operation Epsom’, ‘Cobra’, ‘The Fight for Cherbourg’ and more.

An expansion, fittingly titled The Battle for Normandy Expansion, extends the play area south, to include the Mortain and Falaise scenarios, and extends the campaign to late August and the 3rd Army breakout.

Comments: Normandy continues its slow upward movement.
