The Standard Combat Series (SCS) games enable both experienced and beginning players to enjoy simple to play and quick to learn games. These games attempt to bring out common wargame themes, terms, and techniques.
Day of Days is a company-level simulation of the first ten days of Operation Overlord, the Allied Landings at Normandy in 1944. The Allies need to push off the beaches far enough to ensure a rapid advance into France. The Axis player needs to either defeat the initial landings or bottle up the the Allied forces long enough to create a stalemate. Day of Days is a big, but extremely playable, game giving players a unique appreciation for the issues involved at the beginning of the invasion. The importance of the initial air-drops, the need to get off the beaches quickly, and the real potential for brutal German counterattacks all come into sharp focus within the clean and fast-playing framework of the Standard Combat Series. Players can tackle each US landings separately as single-map scenarios, the Commonwealth landings on two maps, and of course there is the Campaign Game, suitable for teams of players (up to four on a side).
Day of Days includes 3 full campaigns scenarios (Full Campaign, After D-Day Campaign, Mid-Campaign), 8 mini-campaigns scenarios, and 4 smaller scenarios.
