Hi.
I am convinced that a second Edition won't be made of this game.
It is ok, but not as good or popular as the Global ones.

thanks for your reply, I was looking at it because I play with 1941 and D-Day seem fast and easy for an after diner match sometime.

It is the fastest of all the  games, as it is structured over a time period (10 turns).
It is the only game my wife will now play with me!

Pretty sure we're not going to get a 2nd edition of this too. Given how we've only got new versions of the global games since Guadalcanal the demand for it or at least the perceived demand for it just isn't there.

I hate to say it but i think we have seen the last AA game unless they do a retro reprint with painted pieces. The only other thing would be an AA game in a totally different period

You can still find D-Day for a reasonable price online. As for a second edition I don't see that happening.

Enjoy it. I think the rules are quite straightforward, but please come back with any questions.

I certainly think we've seen the last of the "single battle" style games. I hold no hope of seeing anything new on the lines of D-Day, Guadalcanal, or Battle of the Bulge.

I don't think something more in the lines of Anniversary Edition is out of the question (bigger map and more countries than 41/42 sets but not up to the global size or complexity) or as you say a "totally different period" or on some sort of fictional planet.

Maybe something "between" the miniatures game and Memoir '44 but that doesn't seem likely either.

While there's only one edition of D-Day, there are at least two printings of it.  I bought a copy of the game when it first came out ten years ago, then a second copy last year which I saw in a hobby shop.  I bought the seond copy because I wanted more of the "blonde" coloured UK pieces that were in the first copy.  I was suprised to discover, however, that the UK pieces in the second copy were the current pale beige colour rather than blonde.  I don't have my notes with me, but as I recall there were a few other differences too: the German pieces were black rather than gunmetal grey, and I think all the infantry sculpts were in their current "refreshed" shape (the one introduced in 2009 in the first edition of 1942) rather than the older, slightly different original shape.

I bought 2 1941 set to have more pieces because its was a lil limited.

Should I buy a second D-Day set though?

No, don't. You will not need pieces for that game.
