Operation Overlord 2014 Information

At 12:01 am June 6th, 2014 dice will start rolling at Outpost Gaming in Kenosha, WI. They won't stop rolling until at least 72 hours have passed, resulting in a new Guinness World Record.

It's the 70th anniversary of D-Day. As such, we plan to primarily play Flames of War, focusing on the events of Operation Overlord (covered by Overlord and Atlantik Wall). Anyone is welcome to join for as little or as long as they wish.

Flames of War isn't the only game welcome - space will be provided for whatever other games people want to play. Bring your favorite game, or play one from our library.

This post will be continually updated with information about the event.

Flames of War information:

There will be a general campaign structure, in which anyone is welcome to play games with whatever forces they're interested in. The event will begin with a selection of Airborne missions including Pegasus Bridge. When dawn arrives, so do the beach landing forces, with Utah, Omaha, Pointe du Hoc, Gold, Juno, and Sword beaches being represented by scenarios to play through.

After the beach landings, we'll continue with Firestorm: Caen and a new, revamped, Firestorm: Normandy (thanks Jökull!). We'll have some forces available for people to use, and there will be plenty of space for people to use their own forces. Further scenarios will take place as the campaigns progress.

Demo tables will be set up to learn the basics - from there, hop in and join in the campaign.


  1. I just signed up to come but I won't make it until Saturday.

  2. That's great to hear Aaron. We'll see you on Saturday!
