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.

https://blog-cdn.daysofwonder.com/dow-uploads/2018/01/mm-b2v2-envelop-en.jpg


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.

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.

This sounds great. But as a new Board Gamer to Memoir 44, sounds like it would help to have The Pacific Theater expansion!!

Any word on ANY army Packs being released again?

I did manage to find Winter Desert Board and the Mediterranean Pack however! Very Happy

But all the other packs are hard to find OR WAY overpriced.

As far I remember, all the expansions are done in both language : french and english, so don't hesitate ! Smile

And, good news, I have seen that the Pack Armies expansions seem now available again in some stores: Eastern front, Pacific and Mediterranean theatre .

So, enjoy Cool

It would be nice if they also included the MIA summary cards (actions, terrain, units etc.). I've often read, understandably, I suppose, that it isn't worthwhile to print just a small number of cards, but since they are already doing two completely new combat card decks, this would be the time to include the missing summary cards. It really bugs me to have those missing slots staring me in the face when I go over my neatly organized collection of summary cards....

The army packs only exist in English/French versions, there are none "English" or "French" versions for the army packs. However like some people mentioned, there are specific expansions which exist in English or French only (like overlord). The best way to check if an expansion is duel language version or not, is to go to boardgamegeek.com and click "versions" which will show the different versions.

But to conclude, yes you can buy the pacific expansion from this site and it will be in English.

I do believe this was mentioned by Days of Wonder themselves once, or at least by someone closely cooperating with them.

Is there any reason the missing cards will never be released??

It has not been mentioned by Days of Wonder (or anyone I know of related to them) but has been something people have asked for or expressed interest in for a long time.

It may have been mentioned by Sam Healey in a discussion about upcoming things for Memoir 44 on a DiceTower video. I do recall something about it, but this does not mean it will ever be a reality.

Quote:

Very interesting...go to the 18:00 minute mark and start from there. The question is hard to hear, but the reply at about 18:15 or so was very interesting.

https://youtu.be/CVFJYdtnCkc



Sam Healey is referencing a possible revised version of the Airpack. I think that since the majority of Summary Cards came with the Airpack it has been some folks conjecture that a revised version of this might also include Summary Cards and hence completion of an unfinished project. This is ALL total conjecture, but I understand why folks feel that there is something in the works, albeit hoping and dreaming for something never actually promised.

Also, to the best of my knowledge, Sam Healey does not work for Asmodee or Days of Wonder. So this is in no way an official endorsement.

Keep dreaming though!!!

Yeah, it just doesn't make sense to start issueing summary cards so you won't have to look up all the different rules in the ever growing list of expansions, only to discontinue issueing these cards.

I also just love going over them and leafing through them. But that might just be me. It really bugs me then to have missing slots...

My guess (and this is only a guess, mind you) is that it's cost prohibitive to print small sets of Summary Cards when the new units come out. Days of Wonder could maybe print all of the current cards in one deck, but then as new units come out there's no easy way to add them to the deck and keep the cost down in a reasonable place.

So I would assume they will not be printing a deck of cards and will simply update the online database for people to use. There are people who have created documents with all of the cards that they can just update as new ones come out...but I would be surprised if we saw the deck again.

Like I said, that's just my guess.

If you want the cards, the best thing to do is download them from the card compendium, and get them printed yourself. The images are 72 dpi, so you can edit and resize to be 300dpi and bridge card size.

That's what I did, and while they are not totally sharp like the official ones, they definitely work. I printed a batch at the original 72dpi and they were actually fine. A little fuzzy but totally usable.

But isn't the card compendium also totally outdated? The one I checked didn't even have the D-Day landing cards still, let alone the Khalkhin Gol ones.

You are correct. Actions 28-30 and 32-36. There are some fan-made ones on VASSAL that can be printed until official ones come out.

Certainly no expert on this, but if they say had to print 5 cards (of course multiplied by several thousands, but still...), I get it that this is a relatively small batch, but if they are already releasing two complete decks, the print order would be for a much larger total quantity, right? Wouldn't this significantly reduce the price? I mean, Winter Wars also came with several troops and SWA cards...

My advice is don't try to apply logic or reason to anything DoW does regarding Memoir 44. I'm not being snarky, I'm serious. You will just upset yourself trying to figure out why they do what they do with memoir 44. People have been asking this same stuff for years, myself included, and you will get no response from DoW about anything, only conjecture in the forums, so don't even bother. Just wait for the stuff to come out and buy it. That's all you can do.
