Direct from HQ - Memoir '44 Campaign Book Vol. 2 Mon, 26 September 2011 14:35
Dear Memoir '44 Officers,
The end of the year brings new challenges to your command; once again your planning abilities and leadership will be put to the test. With multiple campaigns that span the globe from Central Europe to the Pacific, your men will soon be engaged in 46 different battle scenarios. Your final orders will arrive later this fall in the Memoir '44 Campaign Book Volume 2.

http://blog.daysofwonder.com/wp-content/dow-uploads/2011/09/mm_cb2_cover.jpg


This second hardcover supplement for the Memoir '44 game system takes your campaign skills to the next level as you attempt to lead your men to victory across 5 distinct theaters of operations:
* Island Hoppers, a Grand Campaign covering the re-conquest of the Pacific by the Allied forces;
* Bicycle Blitzkrieg, the lesser studied Japanese invasion of Malaya in 1941-42;
* Break through Normandy, a new challenge in the grand scale of the Memoir '44 Breakthrough format;
* Fall of Poland, depicting the desperate resistance of Polish forces against the Germans in September 1939;
* Air Aces, which follows the exploits of famous air aces throughout World War II.

Memoir '44 Campaign Book Volume 2 includes a 128-page hardbound book with Advanced Campaign Rules, 11 different campaigns and 46 new scenarios, plus a punchboard with 50 new game tokens. This expansion requires the original Memoir '44 board game and additional, theater-specific expansions for each of the campaigns presented.
Memoir '44 Campaign Book Volume 2 is available now for pre-order at the Days of Wonder Web Store. It is expected to arrive there and at better game stores in Europe and North America in early December. Pre-order yours today!

And thanks for not requiring too many additional expansions to play the different campaigns, that'll probably help newer players get into it too. Thumbs Up

Thanks DoW for doing more Pacific Theater scenarios! I'm a happy camper.

Once I get Breakthrough, I'll be even happier;)

They've got my money! Glad to see this coming out. A second campaign book was on my wish list.

A few notes:

Curious to see what the advanced campaign rules entail.

Glad to see such variety in theaters.

46 new scenarios = roughly 65 cents each. That's a bargain for so much new content

Hoping that special pack-in mentioned earlier will be a bonus attached to this

Yay!

I don't know when Spiel Essen 2011 is, but someone said that they saw a shipping date of December 7th. So if Spiel Essen is around that date, then maybe... Smile

No, it won't be available at Spiel in Essen. Just heard it from Days of Wonder. Sad
We just have to wait a little bit longer...

Will the Invasion of Crete campaign(WBC scenarios) be available together with this?


In the US we have some left-over printed copies of the Invasion of Crete Tournament Scenarios, which were used for the Memoir '44 tournaments at both Gencon and the World Board Game Championships. We'll be sending these out to retail game stores at the same time as the Campaign Book Volume 2 is available, so ask your local Memoir retailer when you pickup the Campaign Book.

Additionally, we will add a copy to any Memoir '44 Campaign Book 2 orders from the Days of Wonder web store. For non-US customers, and for customers whose local retailer may not have any copies left, we'll post an English PDF of the campaign as a free download on our web site when the Campaign Book becomes available.

Best News I have heard all day. So that is 46+6? = 52 scenarios and 12 campaigns for under 40 bucks. I dare anyone to complain about that. (I know ppl will find some problem, but I suspect not the true Memoir '44 fans)

Thanks DOW!

And having played those 6 Crete scenarios at WBC, they're great!

Multiple ways you can approach them. Very tactical. Plenty of fierce fighting.
