From the cliffs of Pointe-du-Hoc to the hedgerow battles in the Corentin Peninsula and beyond -- Memoir '44 airdrops you into the key battles that turned the tide in Western Europe during the summer of 1944. Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Operation Cobra... Step in and command your troops on the battlefields that defined History in the 20th century!
Memoir '44 is a unique historical game where players command a horde of little plastic Army men facing-off in dozens of WWII battles on an oversize hex game board.
Each battle scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements and objectives of each army. Deploying forces through a variety of Command cards, the smart commander uses the unique skills of his units -- infantry, paratroopers, tanks, artillery, commandos and resistance fighters -- to its greatest strength.
Easy to learn and fast-paced, Memoir '44 requires strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive, yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory!
I learned to play this game with a friend at a gaming group, and the simple rules, and complex strategies, mixed together with a great online community and unlimited different kinds of maps to create, makes this game a constant star on my dining room table.
This game was my first step into playing board games, and I fell in love instantly. the very small learning curve gets you into the action fast, and with a few games under your belt, you quickly realize the depth of strategy you have in this game.
The combat is as simple as looking at dice. Each side has a unit's symbol on it, with infantry showing up more than armor. And choosing where to hide your units in different terrain types from cities to forests. An amazing combat system even in its simplicity.
Then the board uses hexes and pieces to place in the hexes to represent different terrain features. the rulebook has plenty of material to get you started, and the online community offers limitless possibilities to make your game even more versatile. the site also offers a map creator, so you can create and share your maps.
To sum it up, deep strategy combined with easy to learn rules make this game a great game package, for people of all ages. A perfect game.
Memoir 44 is a much needed game. I love wargames but I do not like to having to read a novel to understand and play the game. Most of my friends do not want to learn or invest the time in playing a long game. I do not mind learning complex systems but it is not fun playing alone and I do not have the time for it. Memoirr 44 solves both. Yes it is not as in depth as full fledge war game covering the same period BUT I can teach people in 20 minutes or less how to play this game and one round takes no more than an hour. My family enjoys this game and the questions and research that have come out of playing Memoir 44 have been stimulating.
Wonderful Items in the box. Quality. Pure quality. Looking for something fun and does not consume all your time but yet requires strategy and brain power. Memoir 44 is for you.
...And your friends will want to play as well...
This is a great game. It moves along. It is balanced between strategy and luck. The many scenarios are neat (as are the historical paragraphs about each one); plus, each scenario is fun enough to play several times in a row. The components are handsome, as is the artwork on the cards. If you like Axis & Allies, for example, I can't see why you wouldn't like this game. This is one of the few games I have that I will sometimes take off the shelf to play against myself: it is that fun.
