Through Jungle and Desert, new Battle Map for Memoir '44

Through Jungle and Desert is the second installment in the second series of Memoir ’44 Battle Maps. This expansion offers two new decks of combat cards, along with six pre-printed standard scenarios and two pre-printed Overlord scenarios.

Lead your men through the merciless jungles of Burma, trying to escape the Japanese grasp or rush to Rangoon before the British forces evacuate the city on the jungle scenario. Then, change the terrain and fight the very first tank battle between US and German forces in the sands of North Africa, where Stuart and Panzer clash in the middle of the desert. This second installment comes with six standard pre-printed scenarios with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions, but also the historical background and special rules. To help spice up your scenarios, the expansion comes with both a brand new Jungle Combat Cards deck and a Desert Combat Cards deck.

Two ready-to-play Overlord scenarios are also provided: fight for Henderson Field in Guadalcanal or conduct a huge desert battle that marks the beginning of the second battle of El Alamein in Operation Lightfoot. The Jungle’s scenarios can be played separately or as a campaign, with each scenario outcome impacting the following one.

Does anyone have an idea what the spider markers represent?

They are to be used with a Jungle Combat Card called "Spider Hole".
Basically it allows the Japanese player to surprise attack the Marines from a camouflaged position.

Awesome, I have been hoping for a jungle and desert combat deck for a long time!!! I hope the next map expands and replaces the standard combat card deck.

I presume you are talking about the Command card deck, but yes, I think it would be cool to see another deck for standard games... either a 2nd edition or a complete makeover, both would be exciting.

I like the addition of the combat cards, but I really like the Command deck as it is.

I mean the Combat Deck from the Sword of Stalingrad battle map. It adds a whole new dimension to the game.

OK. Calling the Urban combat cards standard is a bit odd, since it isn't recommended to use them in all scenarios. I totally agree that they are fun addition, one of the most enjoyable expansion contents.
