A little "intro to Memoir '44" video a friend and I did Sun, 08 January 2017 17:15
A friend and I do Youtube videos talking about fun stuff we like (usually involving beer!). I've wanted to get him into Memoir '44 for a while now, since he's a fellow board gamer, so we rolled the camera and I showed him a little of what it's all about.

This isn't an instructional video, and you guys aren't going to learn anything new from it - it's the hardcore folks who are posting here! - but maybe you'll have fun watching it anyway. Take a look:

Cheers!

Side note, great week ahead for me. The Battles of Khalkhin-Gol should be arriving in the mail any day now, and I just ordered The Great War and the Tanks expansion. Excited to start rolling some dice!

Hi.

I viewed your video and it is a lot better than most. I suspect you did not work from a script (believe you me it could help others) but what you were presenting seemed to flow very well.

It looked like you had fun doing it and kudos for making it available.

I did note that you did not mention the D-Day expansion. Do you have that?

I also noticed that your buddy had a big head start on the beverage consumption (your glass did not make an appearance till a bit after the 9:00 min mark) Laughing

At any rate, good job Very Happy

Memoir and beer a great combination!
Maybe that is the missing expansion?

Yes the Brewery Expansion. Definitely a very Belgian idea.

Yes instead of RATS IN A FACTORY we will be playing BRATS IN A BREWERY. Rolling Eyes

I received a small Gift of chocolates from Belgium for Christmas which were made in the shape of little beer bottles. I thought that beer had only been used as an ingredient in the chocolate. Much to my surprise when I accidently dropped one of the little chocolate bottles, beer spewed onto the floor.

The dog liked it a alot. Happy New Year Johan!!!!!!

Thanks for taking a look! You're right, we tend to roll without a script - and often without a plan, which was the case here. I believe just before doing this one, we had filmed some material on BattleLore. My shelf was staring at us and I felt like talking Memoir, so I just had him keep rolling (Tig does all the filming and editing).

You're also correct that I don't have the D-Day expansion. I'm sure I talked about why we didn't touch on it, but it didn't make the final cut of the video. We film a brief bit on the Overlord box, too, but left that out.

The D-Day set is an expansion I still kick myself about. When it came out, I had a backlog of games and was in a personal situation where I didn't think I'd get much (if any) use from it. I decided to take a pass for the first time since the campaign bag.

Shortly thereafter, I saw some photos of all the maps laid out together and decided I had to have it after all ... but by then, the secondary market had inflated the price a LOT.

Lesson learned: act fast!

Anyway, thanks again (to EVERYONE) for watching. We don't really do in-depth videos, but we do have fun. Especially after a few beers!

Cheers!
