Five Men in Normandy is back.

With a completely updated layout, tweaks, corrections and simplifications, WW2 character driven campaigning has never been more fun.

Five Men plays quickly, has absolutely no long lists of modifiers to memorize and supports character-focused campaign games right out of the box.

All you need to play is a handful of figures, a 2x2 foot table and an hour of your time.

Make the game as chaotic and unpredictable as you want with random in-game events, play solo, follow your characters from battle to battle in a system where their motivations and dreams just might make a difference. 

* * * * *

This is an updated and improved version of the original Five Men in Normandy rules. 

The focus of this edition has been to improve the presentation, make the game clearer and more accessible and tweak a few rules that could use a touch.

The contents are intentionally the same as the original version.

Should you buy this or Five Men at KurskKursk is a much more detailed game, the "chrome" version if you will.

If you prefer detailed games with troop ratings, tank combat and multiple units, get that game.

If you prefer a blazing fast infantry patrol that is razor focused on doing one thing well, get this game.

Curious if this would be playable using standard wargame chits and a hex-map instead of with minis?

You could though bear in mind it's a skirmish game, so the map would have to be "zoomed in" pretty well.

Standard moves are 6", so if you factor 6" is a hex, I don't think you'd have much difficulty.
You'd have to fiddle with how things like hand to hand combat might work in such a situation, but I wager it wouldn't be insurmountable.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
