Memoir at World Boardgaming Championships (WBC) in August Sun, 27 April 2014 18:33
Here's a quick preview of Memoir activities at this summer's World Boardgaming Championships, in Lancaster, PA, USA.

(Come one, come all! You'll meet a lot of familiar names from Memoir Online!)

As usual, we'll be playing a 6-round elimination tournament, with a Mulligan round the night before so players can get a second chance if they lose their first match.

In honor of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, Richard Borg has substantially revised six familiar D-Day scenarios specially for this year's tournament. Richard will be at the tournament, too.

Some terrain and units have been moved, and some newer unit types are used. All new unit types will be taught before the tournament and reviewed before each round. Also, for each of the scenarios, the number of medals required for victory has been increased, or the number of cards has been increased, or both.

Copies of these new scenarios will be given to all contestants.

Tournament will be Thursday-Friday, August 7-8.

> Teaching session Thursday 8PM.
> Mulligan round Thursday 9PM
> Tournament resumes Friday 9AM, and continues until only one player is left standing.

We will also have 6 Overlords, including the "Mother of All Overlords." See below for info on that.
