Normandy, June 6th, 1944 – as you land on the well-defended beaches, a German machine gun nest is killing your comrades like flies. 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.

At first, it seems really complicated, but while the mechanics are complex, they're easy to learn by just sitting down and getting a game going. If you're at all familiar with Yahtzee, D-Day Dice will feel very similar, though with a lot of extra, awesomely flavorful WWII mechanics.
My only complaint is that the Wrench icon is used to represent both Tools and Item Points, even though they're separate mechanics. Your dice roll can contain Tools, and more Tools in a single roll earns you a geometrically increasing number of Item Points. This means that the Wrenches on your dice don't correspond directly to the Wrench on your resource card, and I've seen numerous players get very confused by this disconnect. I think that something like a Radio icon would have been a better thing to put on the resource card, to differentiate Item Points from Tools.
The Dice are definitely unique and are of high quality. I like the feel of the dice and will sometimes just roll them for fun. It isn't initially a very complex game but it is very fun. Enjoy!
The game is a co-op and in some of the harder scenarios you really have to rely on one another or risk annihilation at the hands of those pesky nazis. After playing this game a number of times (15+) I'd say its a must have and sits at the top of my favorite games.
The cooperative system is the best part, in my opinion. So you can play with your friends not having to beat them.
