Location:

Occupation:
Chemist
Mem44 Credentials:
Playing M'44 since it's release. I think that I actually preordered it to get the bonus scenarios. Smile Have all the expansions. Play with my son regularly.
Do you play Mem44 online:
What Nygaard said
Other Stuff:
I can't believe there are Steelers fans across the Atlantic. One of our worst Exports. I'm a Philadelphia Eagles fan (and Phillies, Flyers). I play lots of other games, especially Dungeon Twister. I'm involved in the International Dungeon Twister League and have fun running tournaments for that in the Southeast US.
I wish there were a M'44 league in the US...

Mem44 Credentials:
Been playing for two years now and am slowly adding the expansions. Mostly play with my dad or friends.

YES!!! I do most of my Memoir online. I'm now at about 200 games total, including online and the board game.

Favorite WWII movie:
For movie I would have to say Battle of the Bulge (4 hours, oh yea) However, my top WWII TV show would be "Combat" with Vick Morrow and Rick Jason.

Re:Present yourself Wed, 18 May 2011 17:05
Location: Essex, England

Age: 40

Occupation: part-time Director of a UK charity.

M44 credentials: Have gradually gathered the entire set over the last 18 months, and get to play reasonably regularly with my gaming group, with an emphasis on playing the Overlord version, with occasional standard 2 player scenarios.

nb. I am missing however, the Air Pack, which is impossible to buy in the UK Sad

Fav WW2 movie: I'd have to go with Das Boot .. when I've got 3 hours spare to watch it !

Mem 44 Online: I usually try to get online 2 or 3 times a week.
I was once in the heady heights of the top 150 rankings, but this last month has seen my dice turn against me in quite outlandish ways, and I'm outside of the top 500 now ... feeling too battle-scarred to ever play again at the moment! lol

Other stuff: I'm founder of a local boardgaming club www.southendboardgamers.co.uk which I enjoy attending in my spare time, and where I play all manner of boardgames. I also enjoy jogging, and watching my beloved Tottenham Hotspurs' football team play whenever I can. I also love to play footie at any opportunity. I enjoy drinking single malt whiskey with a good cigar, with my mates. I'm a committed Christian, and help lead a church for half the week. I have a gorgeous wife and two great teenage kids who all keep me on my toes, and regularly remind me what a lucky man I am Wink

Re:Present yourself Wed, 18 May 2011 18:33
Location: Near Chicago, IL, USA

Age: 34, going on 22.

Occupation: English Teacher (nearly finished PhD in American Literature), Golf Coach

M44 Credentials: Loved Richard Borg's Battle Cry, like Memoir '44 even more. I have custom painted my base game, EF, PT, MT, and Air Pack expansions.

Mem 44 online?: No time. In the summers, I am often too busy with softball, basketball, and golf.

Other Stuff: Since we're picking sports teams, I'm a pretty big Bulls fan. I have been teaching literature and writing for almost a decade, and although I teach at an elite public high school now, I designed and taught a great college course on the literature of World War Two that incorporated fiction, history texts, and even film.

I have also taught a seminar course on "The World War Two Combat Film," with a focus on *Band of Brothers.* My literature courses always focus on historical context. In other words, if you're ever looking for a good fiction or non-fiction read on WWII, or a movie recommendation, I'm your guy Smile

Re:Present yourself Thu, 19 May 2011 10:38
Location: Warsaw, Poland
Age: 34
Occupation: I have my own companies in real estate and education sector.
Credentials: Playing M'44 for one year. Have EF, TP expansions, Disaster at Dieppe and all the boards. Now, hunting for Winter Wars...
M'44 online: No, I played solo couple of times. I prefer Vassal with some home rules.
Favorite WWII movie: "Jak rozpetalem Druga Wojne Swiatowa" (eng: "How I Unleashed World War II") - it is polish comedy (additionally best polish comedy ever) and I feel sorry for all people who haven't seen this movie.
Other Stuff: I love board games! When I was young I designed many of them. There is lot of stuff in the store you can play but only few is worth it. M'44 is one of them, because it contains strategy I accept and take about an hour play.
Now I design my own board game with map 2 times bigger than overlord, with more real strategy, ability to prepare to fight, with taking prisoners, masking the units, spies, without any cards but decisions points you can use each turn.

I'm also WWII fan Laughing

Age:
15

Occupation:
Student

M44 Credentials:
I've been playing the game for 3 years. I have all expansions (except the Campaign Bag) and I love to create campaigns. The reason why I bought the game is that I got bored by Real Time Strategy games on computer, both my eyes and I needed a little rest. Smile

Do you play M44 Online?
Very rarely. School doesn't permit me to do so. Even with enough spare time, I go for a solo game on the real board...

Favorite WWII Movie:
The Dirty Dozen and Letters from Iwo Jima - fantastic films!

Others:
Roller riding, Catan and a little poker. And on some Fridays I go to the local gaming club (mostly to play Memoir, but also to try some other games out).

*Best Years of Our Lives* is an amazing film -- great pick. No "greatest generation" nonsense, no comic book glorification of war, no romantic depiction of its trauma...just guys trying to live their lives afterward. It really shows you how our views of that war have changed since 1946. Powerful stuff -- I wish more people had seen it.

Location
Bournemouth (South coast of England )

Age
well before most of you (1962)

Occupation
Marine Engineer
(Spend most of my life sailing around the world on a cruise ship)

M44 credentials
Only started playing less than a year ago. (luckily I've been able to purchase the complete set (Including the campaign bag!)

For the British amongst us the air pack was very difficult to get hold of. (I ended up getting mine in Miami)

M44 On-line
Yes I play lots when I am at home. (About 2 months)
Then I will go AWOL for about 4 months
Internet access on-board is very slow and expensive,which is not good for M44 on-line.

Favourite WW2 movie
Saving Private Ryan

Other stuff
I originally started out with 25mm Ancients and Renaissance armies way back in the early 1970's!!
I still have all of the original figures and armies.

Always enjoyed board games and belong to a good local club
DOW have an excellent selection of well made and enjoyable games

Used to play a lot of TTR on-line but find the people there are just not as friendly and informative as the people who are obsessed with M44 (I list myself in this category)

Interesting... Average age of M'44 players is ca. 38.
We have couple of dinosaurs here! Laughing
And I thought I had the longest grey beard on the board...

It seems game is really fascinating not only for me. Mostly for teachers and some people connected with military.

Consider, that nobody confess to male/female sex. I wonder how many women play M'44. Is there any General in a skirt on the battlefield?

I have actually played several women in the Memoir '44 Online game. They have all been from Europe. We have all chatted a bit and they have outed themselves in what is a predominantly male venue. My hats off to them for doing what they love without being intimidated by all the testosterone.

If you think 48 is bad, wait a couple of years! I became disabled at 52! Hey, I like BC also, and have thought about getting the new version. However as far as I know, it doesn't get the kind of support that M44 does. Too bad, as it's another good RBorg game!

My wife is a general in the making Wink She LOVES the game and we atre pretty darn equal on the battlefield thus far Smile


Lucky lucky you, my wife doesn't like or play military board games.

She and my inlaws, like Ticket to Ride (Marklin Ed.) which I got as a freebie with an order of M44 stuff from DoW.

Hi to everyone. LOCATION:Lincolnshire,England. AGE:47 OCCUPATION:Truck driver for food distributer,working through the night. M44 CREDENTIALS:Bought the game in December 2004.I have all the expansions aswell.I have played 99% solo,because my job doesn't present me with an active social life,but hey,I like peace and quiet anyway. DO YOU PLAY M44 ONLINE:Yes I do.I like to play a couple of games with a rematch,which generaly plays out evenly with a win and a loss,then I go solo for a couple of more games.I'm usually playing on Friday and Saturday,which are my nights off from work.Its nice to play new people, aswell as the familiar folks. FAVOURITE WW2 MOVIE:Saving Private Ryan OTHER STUFF:At the age of 47,I'm still young,free and single.Never been married or had children.Probabaly a blessing in disguise with the recent recession.

Welcome to the forum!! Smile

If you enjoy Memoir '44 Online I think you'll really like the table-top version. There's something really satisfying about moving the little plastic men around, and even though it takes longer to set up than the computer version, the social aspect is wonderful when you're playing with your family or friends!
