Limited Edition Memoir 44 Winter Card Tue, 04 December 2007 21:05
Posted on the DOW store site

Order any Days of Wonder product in December and receive a limited edition Memoir '44 Winter 2007 Scenario card (Parker's Crossroads - Baraque de Fraiture) for free! Available only from our US store, while supplies last


I'm guessing this is a scenario that isn't in the air pack? Anyone have any info on this?

Thats my question as well. To bring the cards into Canada it appears could cost around $20 TOTAL. I would like to know what this little incentive is...see if it helps to justify the cost.

Here's the info on the Winter Scenario card...

As ColtsFan mentioned, it's not something from the Air Pack, it's a new Winter Scenario called Baraque de Fraiture, aka Parker's Crossroads, that took place just before Christmas in '44 as part of the Battle of the Bulge.

It will be included in any order from the US DOW webstore (not available from Europe) and yes it will be automatically added to any existing pre-orders for the Air Pack.

It's also available at participating hobby game stores that carry Memoir '44, so you should try your local game store as well (again only in the US).

For more details you can go to the News Blog entry.

In regards to the scenario itself, what expansions, if any, do you need to use it ?

Eastern Front with Winter board (and I guess if you didn't care about esthetics, you could go with a green board, and even conceivable just the base game - just wouldn't feel very wintery Laughing and you'd probably be short a few village tiles)

How does this work for items not yet available? Sounds like a good time to get my replacement decks but they aren't available yet. Will a copy of the scenario be reserved? Or do I risk losing it because of "limited supply" if they run out before my order ships?

We ship to Brazil. And the scenario will likely be available on the web site at some point down the road. But it sure won't look as nice as the postcard Rolling Eyes

The card is in English only, but if you go to the US web store (look for the button on the upper left corner, when you're in our store), you should be able to order a product - for instance, a deck of replacement cards - (in $) and receive the postcard with it.

As for the local board game stores, approximately what timeframe would you think they would be showing up there ? I know it will vary from place to place but might be nice to have an approximate date!

Retail stores that will have them should have them already. Note that it's not likely that all stores that carry our products will have them. If your store has any questions on how to get them, they can contact us at sales@daysofwonder.com

Why you dont provide tracking number ?

Thanks...

Picked mine up from my FLGS last weekend, and played the Scenario today.

It's excellent. We took turns and there was one American victory, and one German victory. That suprised us because at setup it looks like an easy German victory, but both games were very close (5-4).

As the Germans, he got an early Bombardment card and was able to move his artillery into a VERY effective spot, and that may have been the difference.

We liked the scenario a lot though, it was a load of fun.

Re:Limited Edition Memoir 44 Winter Card Tue, 11 December 2007 15:17
Played yesterday in Vassal !
Thanks Brummbar !

Well...Its the first snow scenario for the Core game ?

I think its great and simple, with a lot of possibilities .
I played with Allies and won 5 x 1 .

My buddy lost his ART in the very first room. My 2 ART unleashed the hell upon his Flak 88 thanks to a ART Bombard card , hehe...

Then , he comes with an 5 INF force to take the "Crossroads" . We resisted very well...

A great scenario , indeed. Offer many options ...and its has snow !!!

When this one will be available to enter reports ? Smile

Some of the other core games have been "winterized" now with the changes made in the Air Pack.

Printed copies are only available in North America. As Eric has posted, we do plan to make it available online at some point.

It's a good scenario but a tough one for the allies. I have played it 3 times. If the allies don't have anything to play in the center with 4 cards, they are hurting.

What does (Troops 2-Specialized Units) mean under special rules.
Forgive me if this is a dumb question,I'm a newbie. Embarassed
Nice looking card/mission, looks tough for the Allies.

The Winter Card is formatted in the "new" Air Pack layout. Instead of going into great detail in each scenario set-up (and introduce potential typos), each scenario references you back to the appropriate Summary Card provided in the Air Pack.

So it means the "Troops" summary deck, card number "2" titled "Special Units" - if you do not have the Air Pack, you can see the card here:

I would assume so. There was a guy that just bought one on Boardgame geek hoping to use it for C&C Ancients - not realizing that Ancients was revising the board in Expansion 2 and 3!

Maybe you can get it from him?

Although I think this board expansion is a little silly, I can't see DOW not producing it anymore if there is still a demand.

Gee, I don't think the board is silly at all. I had bought two, in fact, for Overlord style games.

I just played the Limited Bulge Winter Senario with it (the first time I've used the board), and I think it really adds to the game playability. There's something cool (no pun intended) about playing a winter scenario during a cold New England winter!

Nothing more beautiful in M44 system than a winter scenario ...looks like another game...

Play Eastern Front without this board is the same to drink coffee with artificial sugar ...

I would like to know why this scenario is not yet available in Official Scenarios ?

Its about 2 weeks since its was posted on DoW's blog .

To put a scenario in the database is so time consuming ? Are you waiting till all the cards are sold ? But its wasnt only a December 07 gift ?

Dont be mad about me , Crew . I just wanted to enter a Battle Report..hehe...
Thanks...

Well I visited all the LGS here in Denver and not one of them seem to have ever gotten the Limited Edition Winter Card (or at least admit they did!). And I tried for a period of 3 weeks calling the various stores to no avail.

Some of them weren't even aware there was a new Battlelore expansion had come out either (yes I know this is M44 folder, so I'm not trying to open wounds or a discussion about m44 vs bl, etc).

I ordered the PT and Air Pack from DoW on 31 Dec... just arrived today... there was no winter scenario card included. Wait a minute... just now looked at the date on the invoice/packing slip... it says, 1 Jan. Oh well.
