secret_strategem's Memoir '44 Battle of Nations Sat, 07 October 2017 14:45
My project for the last 3 weeks has been "Memoir '44 - Battle of Nations"

It has irked me for a while that only 7 Nations get special command rules. (French Resistance, Russia, Japan, Marine Corps, Commonwealth Forces, Italy and France).

Why not Germany or the USA? What about the other minor nations that fought in the war? How is Stiff Upper Lip remotely able to counteract the power of the Japanese Infantry?

Well, here is my solution - Battle of Nations. This PDF features all official nation rules as well as house rules for 20 other nations! Not all have been playtested yet, but the more common nations (Germany, USA, Australia, China) have. Let me know what you think! Please proofread and give feedback! Try them out sometime and let me know what you think Smile

I like the House Rules. The point about having some speciality for "basic" US or German troops is nice. I usually try to comment on stuff related to Finns, so here goes: winter theme on Nation rules is understandable, but I might have come up with something to use in all engagements. Though many or most M44 scenarios featuring Finland are wintery. I haven't had possibilities to play Memoir recently, but if I get to play I'll try to apply and test some Battle of Nations rules.

I once did a scenario for the Mediterranean Theater with the Americans fighting the Vichy French. So I came up with a Vichy French rule https://cdn.daysofwonder.com/uploads/userpages/272628/_7620. pdf

Hey guys, I made some reference cards for my BoN rules. PM me your email and I'll send the file to you!

Here is an example of one of the 23 cards

Cool ideas! Have you tested these at all to see how they impact the balance of scenarios?

I have not fully tested all of them. The ones I have played more than one scenario with have been US, Germany, Australia, Canada and China. By and large, however, most of the rules have little impact, but just add nuance to scenarios and help everyone feel included with their own special rules. Smile

If you feel like trying them out in some scenarios let me know what you find. I am always open to suggestions and criticism Smile
