Word Forge Games announced D-Day Dice, 2nd Edition by Emmanuel Aquin on the 6th of June, 2017.
Yes, everyone’s favorite Nazi Yahtzee will be back! So strap on your helmets, chew some bubble gum and make explosion noises as you roll your dice!
Normandy, June 6th, 1944 – as you land on the well-defended beaches, a German machine gun nest has the Allies pinned. You must do something!
In D-Day Dice, players are Allied 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.
D-Day Dice is a multiplayer co-op game, where all players play their turn simultaneously and must help each other in order to stay alive. It also includes solitaire optional rules. 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.
Word Forge Games is working hard with Emmanuel on the base game and new expansions, including 'War Stories' and 'Way to Hell'. Details will follow in the next few weeks as we still have a lot to figure out, but our plan is to launch a Kickstarter campaign for DDD and its expansions at the end of summer.
The game will get a makeover, courtesy of our artist Dominik Kasprzycki. More grit, more blood and more personality will be injected into the components. And don’t worry, fans of the original DDD, because the new edition will be compatible with the old one.
