Fast-paced WWII strategy game inspired by Hollywood war movies
One thing’s for sure: there's no turning back!
It is summer, 1944. The sun shines on Normandie hedgerows. Gentle wind, fields of bright flowers, and in the background, the romantic staccato of machine gun fire in the morning. In these typical French countryside landscapes, thousands of men are about to fight. And die. Bravely like heroes, or cowardly like wussies. But only heroes really matters. Those you see in Hollywood classic war movies. This is whereHeroes of Normandie draws its inspiration; here is what the game has to offer: explosive and fast-paced battles; the pleasure of destroying your enemies with streams of hot lead from your MG42, or crushing nazi bastards under tons of mortar shells. .. Basically, blood and guts and glory!
- Tactical scale board-game
- Each player commands their own armies
- Germans vs. Americans
- Deploy units, secretly plan attacks
- Try to block and surprise enemies
The time is summer 1944. The Sun shines on Normandie hedgerows. Gentle wind, fields of bright flowers, and in the background, the romantic staccato of machine gun fire in the morning. In these typical French countryside landscapes, thousands of men are about to fight. And die. Bravely like heroes, or cowardly like wussies. But only heroes really matter. Those you see in Hollywood Golden Age war movies. Here lies the inspiration for Heroes of Normandie; here is what the game has to offer: explosive and fast-paced battles; the pleasure of butchering your enemies through walls of lead; and the ability to crush Nazi's under tons of shells - basically, blood, guts, and glory. A miniatures game without miniatures, Heroes of Normandie is a fast-paced WW2 strategy wargame inspired by Hollywood war movies. A tactical scale board-game opposing two players and two armies, with the Germans on one side and the Americans on the other. Players use order tokens to determine initiative and to bluff. While a single six-sided die determines combat, action cards are played to spice things up. Secretly plan your attacks and outwit your opponent. Block the opposing strategy and surprise the enemies. Deploy your units and don't turn back!.

The game uses a lot of symbol shorthand to convey information on its counters. While initially this might seem daunting, it soon becomes clear that it is, in fact, extremely thoughtful and useful. Rarely would I have to consult a rulebook to determine movement, combat, and so on. The scenarios, while sometimes silly, are often cunningly designed. My only gripe in this regard is the first scenario, which seems to come down to the luck of unit placement. This is an unfortunate start to a very good game.
Apart from too many counters and too many persnickety rules, the other big problem with most tactical WWII games is length. Games can last 3+ hours easily in many games, a bit silly since the combat being depicted often lasted a much shorter time than the game doing the simulating. HoN does not suffer this problem. While initially the game plays slower than the 30 mins depicted on the box, learning curve effects soon kick in and my son and I would happily breeze through a game quickly and easily.
All in all, a great game. Very accessible. Light-hearted enough to convince non hard-core types to give it a try, yet tactically deep and compelling. There were definitely some very tense moments in our matches. So Squad Leader and its ilk, including the very good Conflict of Heroes series are back in the garage and HoN gets the place of honor in the games bookshelf.
As far as tactical warfare games go, I think Startwars legion is a good example of better designed game. I have not played any other tactical warfare games.
