Memoir '44 Tournament - World Boardgaming Championships

The WBC Memoir '44 tournament is North America's largest face-to-face M44 tournament.

The tournament is a 6-round Single Elimination, with a Mulligan round. The Mulligan will be Thursday evening, and the main tournament all day Friday.

For the tournament, we will use the 6 scenarios from the new "THROUGH JUNGLE AND DESERT" expansion. If you have the expansion, you'll want to bring it!

M/1. St Joseph’s Farm (Desert)
2. Sbeitla Tunisia (Desert)
3. Hlegu Burma (Jungle)
4. Taukkyan Roadblock (Jungle)
5. Payagyi Burma (Jungle)
6. Bardia (Desert)

Rounds 1-5 will all be played to 6 medals, even though some of them are published as 5 medals. In the Hlegu Burma, instead of Sudden Death, we will play that the exiting unit is worth 2 medals.

Combat Cards are a part of this expansion: In the early rounds, if both players want to use Combat Cards, they may. In rounds 5-6, Combat Cards will be used.

Special rules for the scenarios will be taught at the beginning of the round, and help sheets will be available.

Updated Combat Card rules will be taught. You can find the rules at https://ncdn1.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/img/mm_b2v2_rules_en.pdf .

In addition, we will have 5 Overlord games -- Thursday afternoon, Friday late-night, and Saturday all day. Both Overlords from the new "Through Jungle and Desert" expansion will be included.

> Thursday 2PM - Operation Market Garden
> Friday 11PM - Henderson Field (from new expansion)
> Saturday 10AM - Capture of Tobruk
> Saturday 2PM - Tarawa (by LooneyLlama)
> Saturday 8PM - Operation Lightfoot (from new expansion)
