  Memoir '44 Tactics & Strategy Guide English Edition - coming soon! Thu, 07 August 2014 15:44
As a Memoir '44 player, who doesn't dream of learning how to read the battlefield, effectively maneuver troops, anticipate opponents' moves and gauge their relative strengths and weaknesses; as well as discover how to manage the medal count and control the flow of the game - all keys to victory?

That's what the Memoir '44 - Tactics & Strategy Guide, the definitive book on effective game play for the Memoir '44 game system offers you.

http://blog.daysofwonder.com/wp-content/dow-uploads/2014/08/mm_gts_cover.png


Lavishly illustrated, this book contains over 500 pages of tactical and strategic advice. Novices and veterans alike will improve their Memoir '44 play thanks to this guide's use of core principles to understand and retain key concepts; and the careful study of the 139 scenarios and 4 annotated games included in the book.

First and foremost a gaming enthusiast, the book's author Alexis Beuve aka "Praxeo", is an experienced Memoir '44 player as well as the author and editor of numerous strategy books on "classic" games such as Chess, Go and Poker.

While the French language version has been available for some time, the English language edition of Memoir '44 Tactics & Strategy Guide will go on sale in October in both the US and Europe from the Days of Wonder Web store at an expected retail price of $40/¤40.

In the meantime, head to the book's page on Memoir '44 website to download and read a few samples (a whole chapter is available there among other goodies).

Indeed, this is great news, also as the author Smile

I'll publish soon some goodies.
It's been a tough work and I'd like to thank the contributors and team of the English version.
DOW, Rasmussen, Yangtze, Talespinner and Brycie35.

Yes, Eric, you certainly told us!!!

Looks like I will, along with a few others, be going back to school and hitting the books!!!

Very analytic approach and appears like this is Memoir(e)'44's equivalent to Sun Tzu's "Art of War"!!

Well done Alexis/Praxeo!!

To tell you the truth, after playing this game for nearly 10 yrs, I do not think I would get too much out of this guide. I do not believe there is $40 worth of info in it for me.

I guess we will not know for sure until or unless you find that everyone who bests you at Memoir ' 44 has read the book.

Perhaps. They do now with alarming ease now Laughing

I am a bit surprised they got 500 pags in this, but looking at the samples it appears not to be very dense printing. It reminds me of myself trying to extend a high school essay - how many pages did the teacher want?

I think lots of graphics runs the page count up. Just look at the FAQ, if it only had questions and answers it would be about half the size. However, it would not be as visually pleasing or contain a lot of visual information. I love graphics and always look at the pictures more than I read the articles. So no problem for me. Just think of it as a 250 page book with pictures. Also a larger font size make it easier for us presbyopians to read.

As far as essays for school, I always used graphics and double spaced.

This announcement has raised some "sceptic" reactions...
I can understand this.

Accordingly, note that DOW recently uploaded the advanced strategic chapter XIV: The Card Game.

You can download it on the book's page on Memoir '44 website

Have a look.

Re:Memoir '44 Tactics & Strategy Guide English Edition - coming soon! Sat, 23 August 2014 21:47
It's good to read all the different reactions I think.
There are people who see memoir '44 just as one of the many games they play. Other people play memoir '44 because they like the theme and historical background (among other games). And there are people who really want to understand the game mechanics and gets better and better (and you have combinations of above ofcourse Smile )

I think the tactical guide is especially for the people who want to get better and understand the game more.

AS for myself, I play memoir '44 for its historic background and I love the fact that you need to minimize luck as much as possible and still things can go wrong. If there was no luck at all in memoir '44 I would stand no chance at all at games Laughing
(more reason why I don't play chess so much).

Thanks DOW (and Praxeo ofcourse) for the new chapter! It really helps me understand the game even more and play better (I think Rolling Eyes )

Well stated Antoi, as for myself, I like to think I am a "student" of the game and will probably purchase the book and study it.

At times I have "flashes of brillance", but mostly just end up blindly myself into thinking I am better that I actually am!! LOL!

But, for me, once a student, always a student, don't think I will ever graduate and move on to being a PROfessor of the game!!

What I have read so far in interesting...still trying to wrap my head around what I have read!!

It's nice production value, heavy bound book. It is noticably a translation, and has typos here and there, but nothing insurmountable. Been reading some from the beginning last night. It has a nice list(s) of interesting scenarios which I will try to include in the VASSAL module. Read about infantry and armor so far, a lot of things that are obvious to me (thinking these parts more aimed at beginners), but since I mostly play 'by the gut' it's a nice twist to see how you could think about your tactics overall. I am expecting the insight value will go up when I reach more advanced chapters with statistics. It deals with more advanced unit types further on, and talks about the expansions, but I think Equipment Pack came out after this book, which is a little bit of a pity. Considering the price I think I would only recommend it to people that are really into Memoir '44 already and own all, or mostly all, of the expansions. If it'll improve my game time will tell.

Mine should arrive today.

Edit: it's here.


And, and, and? Very Happy



It's nice production value, heavy bound book. It is noticably a translation, and has typos here and there, but nothing insurmountable. Been reading some from the beginning last night. It has a nice list(s) of interesting scenarios which I will try to include in the VASSAL module. Read about infantry and armor so far, a lot of things that are obvious to me (thinking these parts more aimed at beginners), but since I mostly play 'by the gut' it's a nice twist to see how you could think about your tactics overall. I am expecting the insight value will go up when I reach more advanced chapters with statistics. It deals with more advanced unit types further on, and talks about the expansions, but I think Equipment Pack came out after this book, which is a little bit of a pity. Considering the price I think I would only recommend it to people that are really into Memoir '44 already and own all, or mostly all, of the expansions. If it'll improve my game time will tell.


Mine's also arrived and I agree with all of this - the viewpoint of looking at tactics is very interesting. I really enjoy reading it just as a book - and have picked up one or two small points for game play already - nothing that radical, but interesting and useful. I'm definitely glad I bought it anyway Very Happy

I like the new Tactics & Strategy Guide. I hope it will encourage new players and multiply more. I laughed when I read the Sword Beach example - the author didn't follow his own plan. I can relate to that. Very Happy. It's really well done and wonderfully illustrated.

Just received this yesterday. I am really enjoying reading this. It is a great primer for those who have little experience with the game and a helpful guide for us more experienced players.
Thanks Praxeo and thanks for all your help too Jesse.

That is a nation thing, some nation read up down and others down up.

Normally English and Dutch books for instance read up down (tilt your head right)
And I think German and French books read down up (tilt your head left)

I think the publisher is French in origin, hence the up down read spine.

(I am almost sure this is it, but feel free to correct me Smile )

This is it. It happens a lot with translations.

I'm glad people are enjoying it! For those who don't yet own a copy, Alexis is a skilled writer and a masterful tactician. That combination makes for a very enjoyable read where you will have a chance to improve your game! Very Happy

I just wanted to add a few additional observations.

First, I want to thank Alexis who provided me with a early release copy at the French Open last June. I was the only American and he graciously gave me his only copy to take back with me.

A large part of my career has either been in publishing or education. Through this book, Alexis shows himself to be an expert teacher and writer.

I was extraordinarily impressed with how Alexis has managed to convey two things:

(1) practical advice on specific tactics, such as when and how to play specific cards and

(2) guidance on strategic decision making, such as managing your cards, placement on the game board and timing of your plays.

To address both tactical and strategic decision-making, he developed a set of 108 proverbs that guide players in making the right choices at the right time. The proverbs cover so many strategic and tactical options in the game, they truly make this book, the Player’s Bible for Memoir 44.

Alexis is essentially teaching players a way of thinking about the scenarios that they play. The concepts that he teaches through examples of games can be applied universally to nearly any scenario or even other games.

Anyone reading this book will not only improve their performance, but also their enjoyment of the game. I highly recommend it.

Thanks Alexis.

Best regards,

Ben

Just to add a little spice to Ben's story, a picture here of the author and the specific copy of the book that Ben took home. Smile

I like this picture.

The day I gave the unique sample of the English version to Temple58. This happened when the French and English communities met (again) at Pegasus Bridge.

In case anyone wants to visit: this being the new replacement Pegasus Bridge. The original being on the other side of the canal on the left next to the museum.
