Breakout: Normandy has been out of print for a few years now but is still a very popular game and still sees a regular tournament at WBC. Breakout: Normandy is a board wargame covering the first month of the Normandy campaign in WW2. Breakout: Normandy was one of those classic games that basically got everything right from the start. It was also originally produced with very nice components. So what does the new Deluxe Edition provide different from the original?
Thankfully, besides simply getting the game back in print, not much. The map itself is the typical L2 heavy foldout stock. The counters are slightly larger but otherwise unchanged.

The new rulebook incorporates all official errata to the original game and a few minor rules changes. He has focused on the fact that after thousands of plays it became apparent that the Germans have a slight advantage in the game. He also does not like some of the tactics that have resulted.

And lastly, players can no longer guard against weather changes by using the now non-existent End of Day dice roll modifiers. If you are a Breakout: Normandy fan you will want this edition if only for the new rulebook.
If you never played the game before and you have any interest in WW2 you should give the game a look. Highly recommended. Share this:.
