Press-Your-Luck Meets WWII
Leathernecks ’43 is a fast-paced dice game which mixes push-your-luck elements with important tactical decisions. You control a squad of Marines advancing up the beach towards enemy machine gun positions. Rolling the soldiers on your dice allows them to advance, but you might also roll machine gun fire which slows them down. Each suppressing fire result pins down one of your soldier dice and if you accumulate three suppressing fires in a single turn, your entire squad is pinned down and none of your soldiers advance! If you’re lucky, you can use smoke grenades to avoid the fire and push your squad up the beach. Your goal is to assault the bunker, but you also need to outpace your opponent’s soldiers! At the end of the game, you score bonus points if you moved your different soldiers farther than your opponents, so you need to pay attention to what they are doing!
