Wow. Theme and mechanics work smashingly together to produce a fast playing but tense affair. Gift to Seth.

Se volete un gioco semplicissimo da poter giocare aspettando l'autobus o in treno o mentre fate la coda alla posta, questo è il gioco ideale. Facilissimo nelle regole ma con una profondità strategica inusuale per un gioco così semplice.

Never really been a fan of card games but this is set in my favourite gaming period hence my tentative interest. Well, what a cracking buy this turned out to be - playable within 30 mins, once you get through the very brief and VERY vague rules. I suggest you read the FAQ on this site (recently updated by yours truly) before tackling this but it is well worth the effort. Great design and an ideal 'filler' if you're looking for a fast & fun fix in between more serious gaming business.

The game captures the theme wonderfully and card play leaves plenty of room for strategy. This simple system plays very quickly and smoothly.

Great war cardgame. Badly-written rules, but with FAQs, very easy to learn and play. Good feeling of the battle, but it is not a simulation.

Fun and Fast. I used to think it this was just a little bit better than L: Midway due to feeling like I have more control and that a come back is more probable; now I like them about the same, but they are very different games. Good job of making slight tweaks in mechanics to accomplish the right flavor in each of these games.

Good, simple WWII-themed card game. The game does manage to convey a WWII/D-Day feel quite well.

My Brother and I found that the game seems difficult to win as the Allies, so there may be a slight play balance issue in that regard.

I just played for the first time last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice, quick, clean mechanics and a plausible recreation on the Normandy invasion. It took just the advertised 30 minutes, leaving plenty of time to try Midway as well (and also play Shadowfist and Spycraft on the night)

Quick fun easy to learn game. Still managed to have a few rule mistakes and misunderstandings. Also it's a card game so you have to expect bad hands every now and again. Thus the allies never got off the beaches.

The company needs to put out rules you can understand without going online. It should only cost $9.99 at the most for what you get. Otherwise, it's a fun little war-card game.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Fast, fun, and fairly well balanced. I can churn out two games (one as the Allies, one as the Axis) over the course of a lengthy lunch hour and be quite pleased.

Better. The limited number of turns make this one more lightning than Midway.

Not sure if I like this more/less/the same as Midway, but we shall see.

After a second game, I like this about the same. The systems sure are different, but for a card game this is very nice and I enjoy the theme.

Plays really fast and not much downtime even on your opponents turn.

An interesting WWII-themed card game but I suspect I prefer to play Frontline D-Day instead.

A pretty decent game. I was going to give it a 6/10 but couldn't considering the fun my friend and I had when we played the game. With the fun factor included in the rating I have to give it a 7. Now if we played this game everyday, I'm sure I could find more negatives, but as it is a fun, casual game.
