So last night my son and I played a full game of D-day. Both of us are disappointed in the game over all and don't have any plans to play it again. As we played a few things stood out to us,

A- Planes are pretty useless (understand this is for balance)
B- No way to hold the allies at the beach(which is historical and we understand)
C- Germans can start reinforcing St Lo and they can't lose.
D- There are lots of areas that are pointless to move to as the allies

I understand we may be wrong about the above list and we should try the game a few more times but we both thought it was hands down the worst AA game (or any board game) we have played so I don't think it will be played anymore.

How about you guys
Do you like the game?
Is it a game you play much?

i like this one personally.  holding the allies or getting them to waste time on the upper left of the board is balanced against the rule that they pretty much have to annihilate you to capture the vcs.   the allied and axis tanks and artillery have different roles, and the game is quick

i disagree the planes are useless, the germans have to be really cagey about how they place aaa 88s and if theyre not, theyre paralyzed.   early on those planes have to live, if most are dead by midgame its huge for axis.  Jon

I don't think you are using the planes correctly.

They are by far the most devastating weapon in the allied arsenal.
