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:
