Played my first game against Becky - She chose Germans, I had the Allies.

Rules seemed OK at first glance, but we ended up having lots of questions. The main error was that we had action cards as permanent, whereas the FAQ (looked at after the game) stated they only work once and are discarded.

The Germans seemed to have the better of the deal under this misaprehension. At the end I had managed to take 2 beaches for a marginal German win.

The mechanics reminded us of other card games like Magic where one attacker hits one defender with card to modify attack and defense. The theme seemed a bit light - it could easily have been monsters or spaceships fighting it out. I certainly didn't get any insight into the D-Day landings from playing this!

Having said that, we had fun and it was very quick.

Ratings: 6 all round.
