Vercors campaign available online Mon, 06 September 2010 17:44
West of the Dauphiné Alps, the Vercors Plateau forms a 3,000 feet high natural fortress with limited access to the outside world. Following the invasion of France's Zone Libre by the enemy, elements of the now disbanded Army of the Armistice found in Vercors the perfect base of operations from which to continue harassing the German occupier...


If you missed our special offer, here is your chance to relive the Vercors Campaign in all of its intensity.

The Vercors Campaign includes 5 scenarios covering the hard-fought battles between the French Resistance and the German troops sent there to mop up the Vercors uprising.

(This free campaign is an expansion for the Memoir '44. To play the Vercors scenarios, you'll need a copy of the Terrain Pack expansion).

Thanks for bringing this online, now everyone will be able to have some fun with the Résistance.

Btw, did you see, that the the 'Campaign Books' title has changed to 'Campaigns'? What does this mean? Very Happy

I was looking at the campaign, and am looking forward to playing it when my copy of the terrain pack arrives, but if the air rules are not in effect for any of the scenarios, why at the very end, where its telling you its and expansion and you need the terrain pack and yadda yadda yadda, why does it say the air pack is recommended?

Medals error in 5th scenario Mon, 06 September 2010 21:16
I inderstand from JDRommel that the final scenario "Battle for the Passes" actually requires 6 medals and not the 5 printed. This mistake has not been corrected in the .pdf download.

Excellent campaign though and great fun.

Thankyou for making this available! I'm slowly working my way through the Campaign Book ... once I've finished that I'm looking forward to trying this ... will it always be available to download here .. or is it only available temporarily? If so, for how long will it be available?

Many thanks

Jim

It's likely that at least one of the scenarios requires tiles or tokens from the Air Pack. In that case it would be best to have to Air Pack but you might be able to substitute things from other expansions...but that's just a guess. Rolling Eyes

Jesse is right, there are two airfield hexes required from the airpack in the 3rd scenario of the campaign. Have a closer look.

Oh ok, I thought that the terrain pack includes air fields too because of what the special rules say about them.

Nice to see you guys put this online. I was lucky enough to get myself a printed copy, but it's cool to see it get out there for everyone else.

Still haven't played this one. My son and I bounce around between games and theaters and so on. Just picked up the new deluxe Axis & Allies games. I think I'll use the French pieces from that for this campaign. Smile
