Super Aurélie, tu m'as bien fait rire Laughing

Le truc positif est que maintenant, pour la communauté, Ludres est toujours un bled paumé mais plus inconnu Smile Sa réputation dépasse même les frontières Françaises (Belgique et Alsace).
Ceci dit, ces temps-ci il est fortement question que la Lorraine annexe l'Alsace ce qui va, du coup, réduire notre envergure internationale.
Il ne manquerait plus que la Belgique redevienne gauloise et tout notre travail de propagande serait à recommencer Smile

En attendant, pourrais-tu m'envoyer ton œuvre (m44lorraine@gmail.com) que je puisse la mettre sur le site ?

Merci, merci Smile

My Winter / Desert Board Map (bought in January 2007) is of the same quality as the German core game version. Has there been a quality reduction for that board as well? And what about the Breakthrough board (which I don't own so far), is it okay?


My first W/D board was purchased second hand on eBay - it does seem to have a different texture/color than my the W/D board I purchased new more recently. I haven't seen the difference in base games first hand, so I can't say conclusively. I suspect that maybe my first board is of the German variety and my second one is of the Chinese variety. I don't know for sure though.

In actual fact, I accidentally picked up a copy of the German version the other day and I can confirm that it DOES in fact have the awards logos on it as well as the DoW logo. It does also have the rougher texture to the box and it explicitly states on the back that it is made in Germany. I'd say measuring it against my other copy that it is a fractionally bigger box too, but I really mean fractionally.


There may be several versions of the original German pressing as mine has ONLY the DoW logo centre bottom on the lid. No other logos at all but is clearly marked "Made in Germnany" on the reverse.

Re:OverThrough??? Wed, 23 April 2014 03:28
DOW doesn't announce their plans in advance.

When we played an OverThrough scenario at WBC last summer, we used the BT deck (so we could have On The Move and the special BT Medics rule), with the OL rules, too. That worked great.

I really appreciate the fact that DOW keeps coming out with new, interesting extensions of the Memoir line, even 10 years in. Plus, the community of players keeps the game fresh with more unofficial scenarios than I'll ever have time to play. Very Happy It's a great game, even if its sales may not be as big as TTR or Small World.

I have made multiple overthrough maps in the past years. I call them breaklord scenario's. My first breaklord was the first in memoir history and is called the bastogne corridor. You can check these on my user page or search the scenario's on my name in the scenario list.

Salut,

Effectivement ta question est difficile car tous les joueurs ont des attentes différentes et cela dépend aussi des extensions que tu possèdes. Ceci dit, la méthode de Gal Georges te permet de dégager l'ensemble des scénarios les plus appréciés par les joueurs.

Personnellement, je pourrais te conseiller de jouer une petite campagne intitulée "Objectif : un port" d'Arnaud "Junior72". Elle a l'avantage d'être courte et de se dérouler sur le front ouest (nécessite donc peu d'extension). Certains de ses scénarios sont toutefois assez "tactiques". De même pour la campagne de Jacques "JDRommel" David intitulée "La campagne d'Audie Murphy" mais elle nécessite quelques extensions supplémentaires.

Voilà, amuses-toi bien Smile

  Aux parents ... et aux autres ... Wed, 23 April 2014 15:11
Bonjour,

Je suis tombé par hasard sur la revue trimestrielle de "Foto News" (Éditions PlayBac) et comme je l'ai trouvé très bien fait, j'ai eu envie de partager cela avec vous.

Le numéro en question titre "Les 2 guerres mondiales expliquées aux plus jeunes". Surement parfois léger, il est néanmoins très didactique et convient parfaitement à sa cible, les plus jeunes.

Le magazine est construit tel une ligne de temps découpée années par années et mois par mois ce qui donne une bonne idée de la progression des deux conflits.

A voir donc, je pense ...

SW Championship? Wed, 23 April 2014 11:10
I see in parallel forum for TTR there are multiple different online championships.
Do we already have same for SW?
Maybe it is time to introduce new one?

Re:SW Championship? Wed, 23 April 2014 12:45
While I'm not opposed to the concept, I think SW is a little too different each game to have a championship that means a lot. I mean, yes, you can win with different combos and stuff but it comes down, more often than not to one or two combos that wreck everything else. It's going to become a matter of who randomly gets those combos (part of the skill will be recognising which is best) as to who wins.

If the championship is 1v1, whoever gets Diplomat will likely win (don't misquote, I'm saying likely to win, not will win), making the championship even less skill based.

Long story short, Ticket to Ride is less random in who's going to win, making it a better candidate for a championship, even though Small World is such an amazing game.

Re:SW Championship? Wed, 23 April 2014 17:20
Agreed, SW have some difference from TTR.
However random can be mitigated by some additional rules/process: for example: make championship in 4players map and several rounds.

Anyway we already have some sort of stable rating and championship will be just one additional trophy, which gives less experienced players chance to win and celebrate it.

Re: LAN for Mac Issues: Small World 2 Steam..?? Wed, 23 April 2014 18:02
I assume you are using two Macs, correct?

The Steam account does not really matter as far as Small World is concerned, except that Steam probably won't let you run two different computers with the same Steam account. It will probably disconnect one of them.

Assuming you have two Macs with two running copies of Small World 2, I would suggest checking the firewall of each machine. They might be blocking network traffic.

I hope this helps,

Yann

Ok 3 matches in a row tonight !

JenAck vs Cromze : 3-3
TrainTrain vs Cromze : 1,5-4,5
U32 vs Cromze : 2-4

Well difficult to write a good report, that's too much games Rolling Eyes
Some uncomfortable colors at some games (always looking for oranges against Jen), some games with plenty of locos, some longest with 45 wagons (often had to overdraw), and some good blocks by my opponents !
The most important : it was fun and the atmosphere was friendly !!

Thx for the games all Smile

Thanks for the link. I checked and it was not the issue. After 10 PM (DST) on the east coast (USA) OR 2 AM (Paris time) the problem improved. I am guessing that they are either doing server work or that an overloaded input on their server is the culprit.

Re:[spoiler alert] Promotion requirements cadet through to Brigadier Wed, 23 April 2014 01:35
I thought you may be interested in how I am getting along in my attempt to get promoted to Colonel.
I have kept accurate records since my promotion to Lt.Col and this is what I have recorded so far.
I have battled all ranks on all fronts on both sides
I have won all maps on both sides
I have played over 25 cadets and at least 10 of them have been promoted since
I have battled a total of 306 maps including 18 SFTF.
As I have yet to be promoted I can only assume that I need more wins as I have a total of 172.
I read that 250 wins were needed and not just playing 250 maps so that is my next target.
If I have missed something then please let me know.
Still having great fun.

Something else has just occurred to me, do wins against an opponent who leaves before the end count when the bot has taken over? This does happen sometimes for whatever reason and I haven't kept track of those situations.

If your opponent leaves during the game and you are the victor against the bot, you still get credit for the victory and your opponent is given the loss. You can check the MEMOIR ONLINE replay to see that this is true.

Also, your spreadsheet kept by DOW on your Officer Career webpage should be your primary source of information for wins and losses.
Download your spreadsheets and use them to formulate your actual wins and losses. They are adjacent to the WAR DIARY and to the right. A little spreadsheet ICON.

Thanks Stevens for clarifying that point for me, I thought that was the case but its nice to have confirmation.
I have found the spreadsheet on my career webpage extremely useful and I have been using it for a while. Unfortunately it shows opponents' current rank as opposed to the rank at the time of battle so checking that I have played all ranks on all fronts was a manual process. I hope I haven't missed a requirement for promotion and wondered if there was an achievement that was also required. I shall just keep playing and see what transpires.
Thanks again
