Omaha Beach, June 6th, 1944. As the American troops land in Normandy, a German machine gun nest is killing them like flies...

You must do something!

In D-Day Dice, players are soldiers trying to organize improvised units for an attack against the machine gun nest. Each player starts the game with a unit of a few soldiers and nothing else. As the game progresses, he will collect resources and advance on the beach, sector by sector, as his unit grows stronger and deadlier. He will succeed... or die trying.

This game is designed to be played with regular dice (d6), but can also be played with homemade specialty dice. All you need is a score sheet with a small battle map.

D-Day Dice can be played solitaire or multiplayer co-op, where all players play their turn simultaneously (and can even trade dice).

Although built around dice rolling, this game is about resource management (soldiers, specialists, items and courage) and knowing when to move your unit. Resources are kept from turn to turn, so the players can plan ahead (and help each other out).

The first Battle Map is called Bloody Omaha. Other maps include Gold Beach and Utah Beach.
