General stevens Rules Quiz No.2 Thu, 31 January 2013 04:20
There are lots of terrain hexes out there and besides providing some nice cover for your troops, they can be a real pain for your opponent to maneuver through. The most noted of these is the HEDGEROWS.

These Memoir '44 tiles are meant to reflect the real hedgerows in Normandy that were used to great effect by the Germans to delay and deter the advancing Allied forces.

Now to see how much you know. Which one of the other terrain of the 67 types listed by DOW behaves most like HEDGEROWS when it comes to movement limitations on entering on the movement phase?

I presume you mean which of the other 67 types?

Otherwise the answer is hedgerows.


P.S. I know what you meant, and I know the answer, but I won't spoil it for others. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Rice Paddies and Marsh..If you are ONLY talking about movement and not firing..

Entering only or exiting as well..

flooded fields. The only other terrain that requires you to be adjacent to move in.

Mountain..

I like your strategy sdnative. Only 63 more terrain types to guess. I'll give you my answer this evening.

Ahh Flooded Fields good answer..

But Mountains can be only entered from an adjacent Hill or Mountain hex.

Yes, good show.

FLOODED FIELDS require you to begin your turn adjacent to move into them.
As far as the mountains are concerned, yes the adjacent terrain does effect movement, but you could use INFANTRY ASSAULT and go up a hill across a mountain and onto another hill without stopping, so being adjacent to enter is not a strict condition, although a good point. Onto more questions.

As regards your signature line "knowledge is power," this is definitely true of knowing the rules in Memoir '44. Knowing what can happen allows you to plan better and prepare better in battle.

Wonder why a Flooded Field is more difficult to move thru than say a Marsh or A Rice Paddie?
Now there is a hard question to answer.. Smile Smile

It is not more difficult to move through than a RICE PADDIE or MARSH, however, it is more difficult to move into on the movement phase. On the movement phase, you may move two or three hexes with an Armor or Infantry (Infantry Assault) and on your final hex of movement enter a RICE PADDY or MARSH. Nevertheless, to enter a FLOODED FIELD, you must be adjacent to the particular hex you want to move into and you may only move one movement point into that hex. In this way, it has the exact restriction as a HEDGEROW.

As to why it is more difficult? Ask Richard... Laughing

A rice paddie and a marsh area would be identfiable to troops and they know what to expect. Hence they can move into it from afar.

A flooded field is not supposed to be flooded and can contain anything under the water. Caution is adviced when advancing into these. Hence only enter if you start from adjacent hex.

I ran oreinteering in my youth and a particularly wet autumn I ran across a flooded area and suddenly the ground dissapeared under me and I had run straight into a ditch of which I didn't expect to come so soon. Strange experience. I got wet, but ran on and carefully approached the next ditch before leaving the flooded area.
