Expert - Exit hexes? Tue, 01 February 2011 00:10
Is it enough to move onto them or do you need movement to move off the board.

I have played it like that but my opponent says getting on the hex is enough

Onto the hex is still on the board. Still need movement to move OFF the board.

Currently the only way I know how to get the Exit Hex medals is for the player to manually remove the unit and add a medal to the medal stand.

However, Randwulf is correct that to get the medal for the "Exit hex" you have to actually exit the board...so you can't just move onto the spot! That would be like telling someone to exit the room but they just stop at the door and claim that they're gone! Laughing

Agreed but here is the problem with Expert, not everyone understands the rules the same.

I certainly prefer the program limitations, in fact I learned a thing or two I had been playing wrong when I played Memoir Online. Like no armour overrun after entering barbed wire the same turn and several other "wrongs"

For the most part, the Speciifc Game Rules and the Memoir '44 FAQ define the RULES as we know them. Most experienced (EXPERT) players already know the rules or where to access them. That is why this mode is set up for them. If you don't know the rules and have a question about the rules in play then you have to come to an agreement with your opponent.

Many of us have been playing this game for years,. Yes, and we have argued a great deal about the rules. Nevertheless, they are at this point pretty well set for most scenarios.
Home Grown scenarios and some interpretations on the new combat cards have yet to be totally clarified.

However, DOW will not incorporate rules into the expert mode as it becomes way too complicated.

EX = has been / SPURT = drip under pressure

The beauty is that all of the great battles in Expert Mode will eventually be programed into Normal Mode and Solo Mode! You'll be able to play them all just the way you like to; the rules will be enforced and you won't have to look anything up!

But by then some new scenarios will be available here on Expert Mode that aren't yet programed...and the cycle starts all over again! Cool

When playing in expert mode I open the relevant (PDF file) rulebook and troop cards before I start playing a scenario.
I can then easily swap from M44-online to check the details to ensure I'm not accidentally cheating.

(I also do this when playing the real game, rule book, terrain and troop cards at the ready.)

Phread, that sound like my son, when he goes to a friend's house to DM a little Dungeons & Dragons, and brings along a small library.

But I'll admit, sometimes I open up the assorted rule books before or during a game, too.

Did you realize that you have access to all of the relavant Summary Cards during Expert Mode battles, just like you do in Normal and Solo Mode? You just have to right-click on a hex and the cards pop up for an easy reference.

The thing that's missing, and the reason that I also have the rule books available during Expert Mode battles, is any way to check the special rules like "Desert Rules" or "Blitz Rules". I haven't seen any reference for those in the game...

I also pull up the rule book and FAQ PDFs on my computer and if there is a question, I just copy and paste the answer into the CHAT LINE. This helps my opponent to learn the rules and makes for more conversation.
