Memoir '44: Required expansions document now available at my userpage. Sun, 31 October 2010 09:16
Hi all!

I have made a document that shows which expansions are needed for the various Memoir'44 products.

Each product is broken down into what is needed to play the included regular, overlord and breakthrough scenarios.

You can find the document by going to my userpage or following this link.
http://cdn.daysofwonder.com/uploads/userpages/378435/_4064.p df

Along with 50th great document that shows in detail what each product offers, I think it might be useful.


Comments are appreciated.

Stig Morten

PS: Thanks to Jesse for valuable help during the making of the document.

I'm glad I was able to help, but all the work came from you!!! Cool

This will be a document that can help invested owners and brand new players of Memoir '44 figure out which expansion to get and what their purchase might require to fully enjoy! I will be sending many questions over to this document.

Thank you, Stig Morten for your work on this! Smile

Well done, Stig!

One tiny mistake is, that (I guess) you pressed Caps Lock and Shift thereafter, thus Air Pack is written "Air pACK".

Thanks both of you for the nice comments.

I thought I had taken care of a ll the Air pACK mistakes, but I must have overlooked some. EDIT: or a lot of them. Embarassed

I will correct that one later, as there might be more I need to fix.

Really nice!

A few comments:

First of all, all expansions could have arrows pointing to themselves in the appropriate colours. Might seem redundant, but could be useful for a quick glance or for beginners.

The Campaign Bag could have a dotted orange arrow pointing to Winter Wars, since the Breakthrough deck can be used with this scenario too.

All 4 Battle Maps should only have dotted arrows pointing to Operation Overlord; if you do have 2 copies of the base game, then OO is only required if you want the use the Overlord deck, which isn't required as such.

For Battle Maps 2 & 3, both red arrows leading to Eastern Front should be dotted; both copies are only needed to have figures of the correct colour (I believe?). Same thing with BM4 and Med. Theater.

Typos: On pages 11 and 17, "Mediterranien" should be spelled "Mediterranean". Also on p.17, the box should say "Mediterranean Theater" and not "Mediterranean Front".

That's it from me! Overall, it does seem like it can be a useful tool. Just might be a lot of trouble redoing all the circles whenever DoW releases more expansions... Razz

How about a line on Campaign bag going to Winter Wars as well for the breakthrough deck? Otherwise very good, except the spelling mistake and typo (which you will correct in due time). Another valuable resource from the community!

I have plans to update it after I get Winter Wars, and will look at all the valuable tips that you all have given.
