Many of you probably don't follow my Memoir '44 History Club blog (there is a link to it after every post I do if you want to start following it) so I wanted to let you know that I finished and published a new scenario that is more special than any scenario I've done before.

I've always tried to make battles that are historically accurate and interesting (at least to me) but this battle was designed around the experiences of someone I have met and talked to, which makes it my favorite.

If you want to learn more about it, look at my blog and see what you think! Cool

Here's a link to the battle itself, but the blog includes interesting information about Tom Myers, the man who fought in this battle:

PS - Thank you, ad79, for helping me playtest this scenario!

Great stuff Ras! Looking forward to playing the scenario, which looks like a must for any Bulge campaign.

I'm sure you could also teach Maths (probability), English (house rule proof-reading and comprehension), and Science (moulding, plasticity, ballistics), RE (the many different faiths and nationalities that made up the Allied forces), First Aid (treatment of wounds), etc. etc.. You guys could be playing this thing all day!! Laughing

And don`t forget Arts & crafts, need to paint those minis.

Rasmussen,great job with the scenario! Only happy to help with playtesting it, it was already very good from the start.
I think playtesting is fun and I like to have the job of telling others what they did wrong. Laughing he he

Thanks guys! Smile

Yangtze and ad79, maybe we could start a whole new style of school. It could be called the "Internation School of Memoir" and all of the lessons could center around Memoir '44! Laughing The three of us, being teachers, could teach some amazing things with the game!

Just a thought...Rolling Eyes Laughing

Great idea, Jesse!

And whenever someone plays the "Dig in" card, it`s time for PE. Laughing

Imagine the fieldtrips...
Normandie, Berlin, Stalingrad, El Alamein, Iwo Jima.

Parent-teacher conference( or whatever you call it over there)

Parent: Hi, Rasmussen. I am concerned for my boy. He hasn`t beaten me for a week. What can you tell me about his Memoir skills and his future at the school?

Teacher:Well, we are also a bit concerned about his progress, but he does a good job with infantry units, so he will be allowed to continue attending the school. But he needs to work on his skills with the artillery units.

Parent: That's a brilliant message to get. We tought he was being stripped of his stripes and sent home. How do you suggest we work on his artillery skills?

Teacher: I recommend at least 5 scenarios each day, with at least 3 of those being scenarios focused on artillery!
He will also have to follow the "Artillery 101" course scheduled for the summer holidays. It will be hosted by the expert artillery gunner Brummbär.

Parent: Ay, ay, Sir!

Teacher: Stand down!

And once a year, the kids does a re-enactement of the D-day landings. As a end of the year show for the proud parents.

And foreign languages would be covered by reading the names of various operation or unternehmens.

If you write an AAR on the Weiler scenario, we might consider admitting you as a student. Laughing Laughing
Be sure to include the strategy you would use for the artillery units.

The Heavy Machine Gun rules work pretty well for this campaign and when the official rules come out, I can easily convert that rule to match! I'm glad you like it.

For the Artillery Emplacements:

Move up the Artillery (not the one behind the river) at a range, from where it can roll 2 dice. So it's not in the range of the infantry of the defender, and it can fire with an excellent firepower. For the AAR, wait until my piano and trombone exams are done. The end of the school is killing me! Mad Await in June many AARs, and possibly, a brand-new campaign Cool !

Until then,
wish me good luck!

Brilliant artillery strategy, you have passed the admission test, and if you pass your trombone exam you can be part of "The Memoir marching band" Laughing
