Help Bring Back the Memoir 44 discontinued items... Sat, 16 January 2016 02:50
Hey guys I have started a petition to bring back the Memoir 44 line of discontinued products. Please visit and sign this petition so we can show Asmodee/DOW that Memoir 44 still has a huge following and hopefully we can convince them to go back and reprint many if not all of the discontinued products.

The link is here: https://www.change.org/p/asmodee-asmodee-north-america-bring -back-memoir-44-for-the-world-to-enjoy?recruiter=467834186&a mp;utm_source=share_for_starters&utm_medium=copyLink

Also please share with any Memoir 44 fans or bases that you know so we can get this into big enough of a petition for DOW to consider.

Thanks!

I already have everything, I would rather like they bring out new expansions (or improve the online version)

Or am I being selfish now? Very Happy Cool Laughing

Sometimes you can find stuff on ebay.

I fully support new stuff as well. But many people need to have access to the old. I would buy anything new that was released though.

Not for reasonable prices though. Thats the problem is when you do find the old stuff it is unaffordable for many of the hobbyist especially the new players.

you got my vote! having got M44 for Christmas and returning to gaming after years off to start a family it is frustrating that quite a few things are not available - Have picked up what I can in terms of expansions and boards, in UK quite a bit of stuff is impossible to find

Most frustrating for me currently is the non existence of a terrain card pack. Expansions have the new hexes but not the accompanying card - whats that about!?

I've just posted the petition Link to the Retford Wargame Club where the game is very popular and the RAF Wargames Association. Keep up the good work. Obviously just signed it myself. Hopefully a few of our guys will also. Steve.

I recently introduce the game to some people, and based on the comments on a video I did, a few others want to try it, too.

All have expressed some frustration that the base game is a bit difficult to find in an affordable edition.

I do understand there are a host of reasons why it's not always possible to keep a game like this in print, but it's unfortunate that even the core experience is now tougher to find.

I don't know if a second edition re-release is the right move, but I'd certainly support it. Fantasy Flight's re-do of BattleLore seems to be going well. Maybe DoW could experience the same with Memoir.

Thanks for doing this, okstatefan. I hope it works, but it's been a year since your post and has anything changed yet? I feel there is a whole new audience for M44, so the older stuff should be re-done for the new players.

I think reprints would be a great idea.

The powers that be could certainly start a PXXX program. They could set the number of pre-orders needed to fund a reprint of a given item.

Other companies do this, so why not them?

Movement/attack markers would be useful also. They are practical and compulsory in the official irl tournaments........

......But they do not exist in any extensions and in the sale !

Beyond comprehension lol

My recent experience has been that patience is the best policy. Right now/TODAY---Cool Stuff Inc has the base game back in stock at normal retail.

There seems to be times when the games cannot be found at retail; then they get restocked. In the last month I have been able to get virtually an entire set of the standard expansions as well as the new Battlemaps that were just released. All have arrived in perfect condition too!

Best of luck and welcome to the brotherhood!

Don
