Still hitting the beach six years later ...

Can you survive hitting the beach at Omaha? This tournament is a great place to have some fun while everyone tries to do one better than Montgomery or Rommel. The Breakout Normandy tournament format promotes play at all levels of player experience. We have had approximately 50 players every year. You can stay for the whole grognard six rounds of play, leave after the first round, or even play a round and come back in later rounds (after you have been shelled in another tournament). The key is to get people playing and have fun. As long as you have some very minimal understanding of the impulse play system, we can match you up with someone with the skill level that you seek in the first round. The match-ups for all the succeeding rounds are based on your record and what everyone bids.

Though winning it all had long eluded him, 1998 was definitely Don Greenwood's year to dominate the Breakout Normandy scene. Besides winning the 1998 AvalonCon tournament, he also won the D-Day Tournament held in November after twice being turned away in the final round of the '94 and '95 events. However the tournament has proven a difficult event to master with many formidable players in attendance and attrition taking its toll after the first loss. Those who stick it out for all six rounds have the best chance of finishing in the prizes. Hope to see you play a round.
