Shadows Over Normandie

£161,183

1,608

Shadows over Normandie is a squad/platoon sized game based on the Heroes System. You don't need  the Heroes of Normandie core box to play, but Shadows over Normandie is fully compatible with it.

The game features three opposing armies controlled by the players. These forces include the German Cult of the Black Sun, the ancient Deep Ones and the US Rangers. Each force is made up of infantry, tanks or creatures and of course, heroes and villains. Each unit has its own set of unique characteristics and skills depicted on the high quality chunky tokens.

Board Game Geek page

Devil Pig Games are currently in development of this game for release Christmas 2014, but would like to extend the print run AND add in more content free of charge for backers of the original Heroes of Normandie Kickstarter who chose to receive this game. 

 Each turn is divided in three phases.

The first phase is about giving hidden orders to your units.

These numbered counters allow the players to choose in which order their units will act to surprise the enemy!

The second phase is all about the action.

  Shadows over Normandie is not one of those old fashioned games where you sit, waiting for the other guy to finish his move and fire actions. In Shadows over Normandie, players activate units alternatively. This gives the game its heroic feeling. It's fun, fast and… bloody.

The third phase is the Reserve phase. 

All units that were not given orders are allowed to move. No unit will be left untouched, although these units do not get to fire.

A few weeks after D-Day, a US Ranger Company, lost in Normandie, has to confront the terrifying power of the Nazis cult of the Black Sun. allied with an ancient Deep Ones tribe, they’re preparing a dark ceremony to summon the great Cthulhu. The Lost Battalion is the first chapter of a great campaign and you have to be a part of it!


The scenarios will tell you this story. They become increasingly difficult, and are designed as tutorials to teach you the game mechanics. Each brings a new tactical challenge. Objectives lead players to make tactical choices, some will be successful, others… well, they won’t.
Soldiers will fight, while heroes or vilains have specific tasks to fulfill. It’s a bridge between a wargame and an adventure game.

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter. The first one was a success but was challenged by dispatching and shipping issues.
We learned a lot from these troublles and since, we have increased our team and our network. The community is born and now grows every day.
How will this things impact this Kickstarter campaign ? We now have a bigger team so the production will be faster. We have contacts with good dispatchers who will handle the shipping carefully and we've improved the quality of packaging. We know that the dice have to be produced first and as soon as possible. We know better how the world and the universe are turning.

But, there's always chaotic things and shit might happen. Production, Shipping and Customs are still not 100% under control but we will do our best to stay within the schedule. You can see from the quality of the Heroes of Normandie box (just check out the reviews) that we're committed to bringing you high quality components and a really fun game!
