About

 PRINCIPLE OF THE GAME. 

The rules are intended to simulate the fighting in June 44, while preserving the atmosphere of the time. We privileged the pleasure of play and immersion in history

  •  Basic rules : realistic and intuitive (explainable in 3 minutes, playable in 1 hour, ...), 
  •  Advanced rules to increase the realism of the game and find all the diversity of historical elements essential to develop a fine tactic specific to confrontation games.
  • Game ready to play: tanks are already assembled and the soldiers do not need to be cut.
  • A modular 3D scenery to recreate almost any battlefield that you want.
  • You will be able to use this game to play also with other games that you like, 
  • The scale: true 15mm (feet to the eyes). This is the scale allows to represent a complete battlefield, to have a very good level of detail of the units (size of a tank is approximately: L:5.5cm x W:2.5 x H:2.5 (L:2.2 inches x W:1 x H:1).
  • For 2 players or per team.
  • 1 playable giant map ( 120cm x 84) (48 inches x 33) on a table.
  • Stowable in a box and transportable everywhere.

 WHY AN EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN? 

  • This game has required a lot of work, furthermore, we add the quality and the quantity of the components. If we sell this game to a distributor, who then sells it to retailers, the final price of one game would be multiplied by 2.5, so the game would be sold in a physical shop more than 300 €.

RULES OF THE GAME: 

To  preserve the immersive atmosphere of the time. We decided to develop:

  • An intuitive basic rule (explainable in 3 minutes, playable in 1 hour, ...).
  • Advanced rules to increase the realism of the game and find all the diversity of historical elements essential to develop a fine tactic specific to confrontation games.
The rules will be available in all these languages.

To access the rules of the game (with automatic rules translator):  https://www.rp-games.com/newpage 

STEATCH GOALS: Many more rules will be revealed depending on the units that will be unlocked by the streach goals (Tigre, priest, hiden units, smoke, Sd Kfz 251, Fields of Mines, bogged, Pak 40, Stug III, And much more...)

ABOUT THE  GAME:

  • We are players for many decades, and we are passionate about all styles of play (cooperative, family games, deck building cards, worker placement…) and of course we play a lot of wargames (memoir 44, ASL, tide of iron, conflict of heroes…).
  • The creator: I developed this game because I was looking for a game with accessible and intuitive (but also realistic) rules to convert friends to wargame. Then I realized that figurines and 3D scenery were needed so that they could immerse themselves in the time and in the strategy by understanding the terrain, but I did not find that kind of game (where all these elements were all in a single box ready to play) in the stores. So I decided to start creating. After several years of research, tests and development, I became aware (after several requests for quotes to several factories ...) that this game could not be sold in the stores in the current state, because its cost (development, sculptures, molds, drawings, manufacturing ...) was too high. That's why we decided to propose this game on a kickstarter campaign so that this game excites, and that you could play it often because is the engine that drives us today to embark on this project.
  • This game was developed to try to make you travel back in time, immersing yourself as if you were really in Normandy in June 44.
  •  If you like this game and if it succeeds its financing, we wish to develop a series around this title over different periods (several periods are already in study: ART of War: Napoleonic, ART of WAR: ACW…). The games will keep the same philosophy (giant map with hexagons, figurines and 3D scenery, intuitive and advanced rules specific to each period).
