Tom and I have set ourselves to the task of playing out the entire battle for Normandy from D-Day to August 10. That's fighting from the airborne and beach landings to capturing Cherbourg, to operations Cobra, Epsom and Goodwood to the Falaise pocket. This game uses a map that details the country side in exacting detail and the time scale is set in in 1/2 day turns.
The amount of chits is daunting - but with that comes the opportunity for multiple players to take control of a division and try their hand at fighting in the decisive battle on the Western Front.
So in the next few days the tables will be prepared, the maps laid out and the chits placed in anticipation of the invasion. I encourage everyone to try their hand at playing this game - you don't have to commit to it entirely, you can play a little or as much as you want but one thing is for sure if you do participate you'll share in part of an epic gaming experience!
