Includes Double-sided large-scale Battle Map, plus new jeep and half-track figures
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France July 12, 2010. Today Days of Wonder announces Disaster at Dieppe, the final installment in the first series of Memoir 44 Battle Maps. It features two new, ready-to-play Overlord scenarios; 6 jeep and 6 half-track figures; and 4 Standard scenarios.
Disaster at Dieppe highlights the ill-fated raid on the German-occupied coastal town of Dieppe, code-named, Operation Jubilee. The second Overlord scenario The Capture of Fortress Tobruk, features Rommel in June of 42 as he relentlessly pushes his Afrika Korps after smashing through the British lines at Gazala in North Africa. The 4 Standard scenarios are: Raid on Barce and Rommels Right Hook, featuring the new Willys jeeps as long-range patrol cars; and Panzers in the Atlas and Le-Mesnil-Adélée, featuring the new Sd.Kfz. 250 half-tracks. Also included are detailed rules for the long-range patrol cars and half-tracks.
The Disaster at Dieppe is an expansion designed for 2 to 8 players and each map is ready-to-play with all terrain obstacles and unit positions pre-printed, so players can simply add their own figures and play. It requires one copy of Memoir 44 and the Operation Overlord expansion, or two full copies of Memoir 44. Purists wishing to use all figures of the proper color in the Overlord scenarios will also need two copies of the Mediterranean Theater expansion. It is expected to be available in September in both North America and Europe. Retail price is $18/€16.
