About this Product

Undaunted is a brilliantly accomplished design, offering an engrossing WWII wargame in the guise of an approachable deckbuilder. From its immersive campaign to its tight and tense squad-level gameplay, it's a flying success - Tabletop Gaming Magazine

Undaunted: Normandy is by far the best wargame I've played in a long time... This is not just the kind of game that I love, it is the kind of game that the hobby needs! - Marcowargamer

I really think it's a fun, great system. There's a certain elegance to the gameplay, which is a term that is thrown around a lot but you know darn it this really works here. - DriveThruGames

The abstraction of infantry combat with deckbuilding is a stroke of genius, leaving a tactically and strategically rich game - There Will Be Games

June, 1944. Through the D-Day landings, the Allies have seized a foothold on the beaches of Normandy. Now you must lead your troops forward as you push deeper into France and drive the German forces back. You will face intense resistance, machine gun fire, and mortar bombardment, but a great commander can turn the situation to their advantage!

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.
