Days of Wonder Announces Free Memoir '44 Vercors Campaign
Available from participating game retailers & the Days of Wonder Web Store!
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France - November 9, 2009. Days of Wonder today announced the upcoming release of the Vercors Campaign for the Memoir '44 game system. This full-color, mini-expansion will be given away free to customers who purchase any Memoir '44 product from participating hobby game retailers or the Days of Wonder online web store.
The Vercors Campaign is made up of five new scenarios created by Jacques "jdrommel" David. They highlight the heroic Maquisards of the French Resistance and their battle against overwhelming SS forces on the Vercors Plateau in the summer of 1944. As with all Memoir '44 campaigns, victory is earned by winning multiple battles with the outcome of each scenario determining the circumstances of the next.
While supplies last, the Vercors Campaign will automatically be included in any order from the Days of Wonder web store that includes a Memoir '44 product, including any pre-orders for the new Sword of Stalingrad expansion expected to ship December 1. It will be available in retail stores in North America and Europe beginning in December.
A copy of the Memoir '44 base game, its Terrain Pack expansion (for some scenarios only) and the Campaign Book Vol.1 (for the campaign rules) are required. The Air Pack is also recommended, though not strictly necessary, to play this particular campaign.
