Undaunted: Normandy Announced by Osprey Games

Not a lot of time to finish the “New to Me: February” post today, so that will be early next week.

Instead, how about some quick news about what looks like a really intriguing World War II deckbuilder?

What’s that you say? You’re asking how those two concepts could ever go together?

I know! I’m the same way.


Osprey Games has announced Undaunted: Normandy, a 2-player deck-building World War II strategy campaign game designed by David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin with art by Roland MacDonald.

What? Campaign game? I know what you’re saying.

You’re saying “Dave, you look great in those jeans.” Awww, thank you.

But you’re also saying “Dave, you don’t do campaign games, so why are you so excited about this?”

Let’s blurb this puppy.

“Undaunted: Normandy is a deck-building game that places you and your opponent in command of American or German forces, fighting through a series of missions critical to the outcome of World War II. Use your cards to seize the initiative, bolster your forces, or control your troops on the battlefield. Strong leadership can turn the tide of battle in your favour, but reckless decisions could prove catastrophic, as every casualty you take removes a card from your deck. Take charge amidst the chaos of battle, hold fast in the face of opposition, and remain undaunted. “

Sure, that sounds great. But again, why so excited?

I’m excited because Pete Ward of Osprey Games confirmed to me on Boardgame Geek that each individual mission has taken them 30-45 minutes to play.

That’s a perfect lunchtime game!

Deckbuilder: Check. World War II: Check. Short duration: Check. Campaign: I guess I’m on the campaign bandwagon now!

When is it coming out? August 2019.

I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one. Unfortunately, no images or more information than that in the press release has been sent out.

I’ll keep you posted.

Check it out if you want a little more information.

Now get back to work, you maggot!

(Sorry, just was having flashbacks to my old Sgt Rock comics)
