D-DAY DICE: 2ND EDITION (Word Forge Games, 1-4 players, ages 14 and up, 45 minutes; £45/$60)
D-Day, the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control, began in the morning of June 6th, 1944 along the beaches of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of the war in Europe. D-Day Dice, by Emmanuel Aquin, is a resource-management multiplayer cooperative game that simulates this invasion. And it does so in a very clever way. The second edition of the game has recently finished a successful Kickstarter campaign. This follows the first edition of D-Day Dice in 2011, which was one of the most successful Kickstarter events of it’s day.
