We wish to announce our Autumn "Wargaming Weekend"
Andy has been running board wargaming weekends for the last 30? years, formally and formerly as part of the European Historical Board Wargaming Society; lately with what we regards as friends. Second Chance Games has a large enough customer base that we thought we would be able to organise a board wargaming weekend and open it up to our customer base. Our Autumn one is established yet we welcome new attendees. We are rooted in the board wargaming industry and this is one way we can give back to the community.
D-Day at Omaha Beach (3rd Printing) recreates America’s most bloody and heroic day of World War II. In this solitaire game from the designer of the solo classics RAF and Ambush, you control the forces of the US 1st and 29th Divisions landing under fire on the Normandy shore, and struggling desperately to establish a viable beachhead. The game is also great for two players playing cooperatively, each controlling one US division.
US units include assault infantry, amphibious tanks, artillery, engineers and HQs. The game system controls the hidden German defenders in Widerstandsnest resistance points on the bluffs overlooking the beaches. US forces that manage to break through the deadly coastal defenses and reach the high ground must then contend with German mobile reinforcements in the bewildering hedgerows of Normandy’s bocage. An innovative diceless combat system highlights unknown enemy deployments and the importance of utilizing the right weapons and tactics.
Event cards keep the action flowing and the rules simple, while controlling German strategy and introducing extensive historical detail. The game includes amphibious landings, German artillery and rocket barrages, US naval bombardment, tides, engineer operations, and intangibles such as US leadership under fire and the initiative of the American GIs.
