Re:M44 questions Wed, 16 April 2014 01:43
As Alexis Beuve (Praxeo) says in "La guide tactique et stratégique", playing M44 without the Air Pack is like playing "Memoir 1917" and not Memoir 44. Very Happy I got my planes at Amazon and downloaded the rules from DOW. It's not big deal if you really want to get the full experience. I just wonder when M44 will allow Air Rules on M44 online. That would be veeeeery nice Rolling Eyes

I would love to use that as signature!

Speculating is always fun!
Knowing the answer and not sharing is not.

Sorry all, we just need to wait a little bit longer and all will be told in detail.
I am sure most will not be disappointed.

But will we have it by 6th June - that is the question for most speculation Wink

Again, many thanks for all your hard work JDrommel. 2014 is turning out to be a great year for Memoir '44.

As I understand the mini-campaign scenarios are not linked in any way other than theme?

Yes, it's only some battles in the same places and done consequently.

Yours, Smile

I won't be able to make it this sunday.
If someone else can take over organisation, that is fine.
Else, I'll just report it to the next month.

If this Saturday is okay, I can run it.

How many people would we have for Saturday, same time?

The scenario would be Rzhev.

Re:Differences between Core Games? Wed, 16 April 2014 03:22
I had the same experience with my second base game. The bleached tiles bug me when playing overlord with my nice first base game. The US infantry figures were slightly dis colored and clearly the plastic did not set properly in some. I suspect it was not an isolated problem because DOW support basically refused to help. I mean I always assumed the problem was too big to rectify.

The first copies were made in Germany. With rising costs, some later copies were made in China. The difference was clear, though I think lately they've been better.

Re:Differences between Core Games? Wed, 16 April 2014 10:09
I started with the Made in China version and was quite happy until I got my second base game which was the Made in Germany version. The differences in quality are marked, especially the dice which have long since worn out from the Chinese version.

With Operation Neptune round the corner I'm tempted to get a 3rd base game (second hand?) on UK e-bay but will only look for the German version - if they are still to be had.

Is there a easy way to see which edition is for sale?
I notice the box to be more soft colored (or not?)

The German version does not carry the 3 Award logos on the cover, only the DOW logo in the centre. I think also the box has a matt finish, not glossy.

You can actually feel a difference when touching the box, the older one has a slighty rough surface (like a carton) while the newer one feels smooth.

Sadly this won't help people if they are buying the game online. Very Happy

Re:Is this the find of the decade? Wed, 16 April 2014 13:02
Hmmm I didn't know that about the German edition. Not sure that the wife would be too happy if I bought more. She already had this look of 'You did WHAT' when I came home on Saturday and told her I'd bought more Memoir...

I'm just soooo glad I held out as long as I did on the Air Pack. Had a couple of chances to buy it at around the £100 mark but I kept thinking there's always the possibility I will find one cheap one day. To have found two complete copies so cheap within a few months of each other is just staggering. I mean, I know that it's not the most popular expansion in terms of the air rules themselves, but tbh I really wanted it for the scenario book and all the visual reference cards. Now I have two copies of them all. Huzzah!

Additional - ok, it turns out that the Air Pack isn't *quite* complete, as only one of the airplane cards is in there. All the other reference cards are though. As far as the tiles and counters for all the expansions, I haven't mustered up the courage to go through them all yet - there's just a massive jumble of tiles, counters and plastics.

But, looking at the base game led me to find that it is one of the highly desirable German versions. Nice!

Jacques,

es tu sur place la veille et disponible? Je veux dire le vendredi dans l'après-midi? Histoire de faire un petit tour dans le secteur.
Ce serait bien si tes compaires arrivent à te libérer?

Merci pour l'initiative Jacques.
Je suis intéressé.

Je serais sur la normandie la veille (vendredi).
J'aurais un véhicule si besoin pour covoiturer vers ces lieux de mémoire.

A+

Oui, j'arriverai le vendredi. Mais comme tu le sais, il faut installer tout le matériel et cela prend du temps, et on a besoin de tout le monde. Je n'ai pas à me défausser, j'ai mon rôle à jouer. Le samedi matin, par contre, c'est possible même si on n'a plus beaucoup de temps.
Bon peut-être le vendredi soir, il peut rester du temps pour voir autre chose, c'est pas ce qui manque là-bas.

Amicalement, Smile
Jacques.

Jacques,

Je te mets davantage encore à contribution...j'arrive dès le lundi 26 mai et souhaite construire un programme de visites (je suis véhiculé) pour le mercredi, le jeudi et le vendredi sans faire redondance avec ton programme du samedi matin...

Que me conseilles tu d'aller voir absolument sachant que la dernière fois que je suis venu en Normandie, même Aurélie In Wonderland n'était pas encore née Laughing ...

Merci bien Very Happy

La dernière fois que tu y es allé, tu étais dans les blockhaus ou tu barbotais dans l'eau ?
