It’s the morning of June 6, 1944. As Allied forces prepare to storm Normandy’s beaches, the fate of Europe is in your hands!
D-Day will allow players to recreate the largest amphibious invasion in history.
Axis & Allies D-Day begins as Operation Overlord, the invasion of German-held Normandy, is underway -- 130,000 soldiers of the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States are poised to assault Fortress Europe. You and your fellow world powers control their fates.
One player controls Germany, whose Axis forces have turned the beaches of Normandy into a near-impenetrable stronghold. Set to breach those defenses are the Allies: the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. The future of Europe and the world hangs in the balance.
You are on the beaches of Normandy, and ahead lies an uncertain future. The fate of the world hangs in the balance, as you struggle for control over the cities of Cherbourg, St. Lo, and Caen. Savage, quick, and decisive, D-Day was the major turning point in the European theatres, with Liberty itself on the line. Designed for 2 or 3 players, axis and allies D-Day accurately captures this dramatic conflict and places you squarely in the middle of the greatest battle of the 20th century.
Axis & Allies D-Day (released in 2004) begins on June 6th, 1944 – the day of one of the deadliest battles of World War Two. Axis & Allies D-Day attempts to replicate the strategy of this very day – in board game version.
The game is a great introduction for those players wanting to learn the basics of the Axis & Allies series of games. You’ll find quick game play and an easy set up. The dice will determine which side luck is on – but you will still require a solid strategy to win the war.
The factual elements put into this game are pretty unique, with items such as Blockhouses and Beachheads. Unlike many other A&A games, there is no money or plastic chips needed – it is all on the flow of Order Cards (phases 1-16).
Winning will come down to the wire for the Allies, with the Axis (Germany) needing to put up a good strategy to keep that one city secure until turn ten.
