App description: This 1 on 1 card game recreates the drama of the day Allied soldiers went ashore in occupied France, 6 June 1944. Each of the historic landing beaches - Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha and Utah - is represented by its own card, as are the defending German divisions and attacking Allied units. The Allies must marshal their resources to gain and secure control of as many beaches as they can by day's end: a run-through of the 110-card deck.

However, the Axis has the starting advantage; the Allies need to avoid being caught dead in the water. Although most units are preassigned to a beach, each game is won or lost by the placement of cards that provide additional forces or support. Not only is the state of each beach important to consider for these decisions, but also the geography of the coastline - after a beach has been won, the victorious forces can flank adjacent beaches. Both players must always be thinking ahead, looking for ways to best utilise their cards down the line.

Key Features

- Play as the Axis or Allies.
- Cross-platform online play.
- Play solo vs AI.
- 2 player hot seat multiplayer.
- A faithful conversion of the original card game.

Still waiting for HexWar/Hunted Cow to finally smash one out of the park... and for them to get the quality over quantity ratio in balance. Gotta give them credit though, they don't ever give up.

"give them credit", fine; "give them $$$" not so fine...

Reminds me a lot of that disaster "Nuts!", not falling for it again.
