Since we’re talking about D-Day, let’s linger a little longer and turn our attention to Emmanuel Aquin and his print-and-play game D-Day Dice. The game has thus far been available in a free trial version, as Aquin spread the word to generate interest. Now, it’s being picked up for publication by Valley Games, and will be out by November of this year. A Kickstarter campaign should begin shortly, and I’ll post a link when it goes live.
If you scroll to the bottom of the Valley Games page, you can download the trial version, print it out, and give it a test run. Based on a read-through of the rules, D-Day Dice appears to have an interesting mechanic, calling to mind a mashup of Roll Through the Ages and Memoir ’44, with an added layer of depth. I’m going to print this one out and give it a spin, and I’m looking forward to trying the finished game.
