Game Summary:
Set against a backdrop of American troops landing in Normandy, the players are soldiers trying to organize improvised units for an attack against a machine gun nest. Each player starts the game with a unit of a few soldiers and nothing else. As the game progresses, he will collect resources and advance on the beach, sector by sector, as his unit grows stronger and deadlier. He will succeed... or die trying. Although built around dice rolling, this game is about resource management (soldiers, specialists, items and courage) and knowing when to move your unit.

Number of Players:
1 to 4 (games with 2 or more players are cooperative)

Estimated Playing Time:
20-40 minutes (use of VOIP is highly recommended for online games)

Complexity Level:
Easy

About the Game:
This is a BRPG conversion of the free print-and-play "D-Day Dice" boardgame, by Emmanuel Aquin (self-published, 2009). This conversion includes not only the basic "Bloody Omaha" map/scenario that the original game was based on, but also the four additional maps/scenarios that have been release for the game since it was first published ("Gold Beach", "Utah Beach", "Juno Beach", and the introductory mission "Exercise Tiger"). This digital conversion of "D-Day Dice" for use with BRPG is being released with permission from the game's designer.

The following quotes are what some gamers on boardgamegeek.com had to say about this game (in reference to the original print-and-play game, of course):

"One of the best dicegames I've ever played."

"Dangerously addictive."

"Fun little diversion, like a war-themed Yahtzee."

"Punishingly difficult."

"This game is brutal (in a good way). It relentlessly chews you up and spits you out. Any victory you gain is won through terrible odds, hard work, blood, sweat, and tears."

"Brutal, brutal, really tough as hell, but has the elusive "let me try again!" quality."

"A creative and evocative game offering a glimpse into the hell of D-Day, presented with due respect for those who were there."

I have uploaded a new version of the D-Day Dice zip file linked to in the opening post. This new version adds support for BRPG v1.6m.

This game was originally developed in BRPG v1.6d, and the Views feature underwent some major changes since them, so I have corrected the Views to work properly in the newer versions of BRPG. I also fixed another problem I discovered in the original release, which would cause the Player Scorecards to become invisible while panning the map window.
