The Tigers in the Snow '44 Overlord BattleMap expansion includes new Memoir '44 Overlord Scenarios, 6 new Tiger Tank miniature figures, and 2 bonus scenarios.
Perfect for group play at home or gaming events with fellow Memoir '44 friends, the Overlord BattleMap series is designed for 2 to 8 players and requires either 1 copy of the original Memoir '44 board game, plus the Operation Overlord Expansion; or 2 copies of the board game.
Purists wishing to use figures all of the proper color will also need 2 copies of Eastern Front for Tigers in the Snow, and 1 copy of Mediterranean Theater for Operation Market Garden, though these are not required to play the game. The two bonus Standard scenarios only require one copy of Memoir '44 and the Terrain Pack to play.
Tigers in the Snow:
Hot on the heels of their success in Operatsiya Bagration, Soviet forces struck deep towards the Baltic coast, rapidly severing communications between German Army Group North and what little was left of Army Group Center.
By early October 1944, the Soviets were in view of the Baltic Sea, near the port of Memel, definitively cutting off Army Group North from any retreat route through East Prussia.
Despite Guderian's plea for an evacuation by sea and subsequent redeployment in Central Europe where forces were desperately needed to help stabilize an increasingly dicey situation, Hitler stubbornly refused.
Instead, he ordered the 200,000+ German troops to entrench themselves, in the hope of using the Courland Pocket as a springboard for a future offensive.
Operation Market Garden:
The largest airborne operation of all time, Operation Market Garden was a bold attempt by Field Marshal Montgomery to drop three entire Airborne Divisions behind the enemy lines, in German occupied Netherlands.
Their tactical objective: To capture and hold all the major water crossings along a narrow 60-mile stretch of highway and into northern Germany.
