UK tournament? (UK Games Expo?) Sun, 12 May 2019 14:39
A few years ago in the UK Games Expo programme there was a lovely article about someone trying out a Memoir44 tournament at the expo for the first time.

Later on that year I actually bought the game and I have since played it countless times and spent so much on getting every expansion I can and playing so many scenarios, overlords and all sorts.

BUT it seems 2016 was the last time there has been a Memoir 44 competition at the Expo!

I'm wondering why it stopped and if anyone has been thinking of starting a UK tournament because I would love to attend one!

June 2016 was also when the brexit referendum was held.
This had an impact on £ / € and therefor had increasing prices for whatever was distributed from europe to the UK, like boardgames such as Memoir. Increasing prices lead to dwindling interest in the game and not enough interest to organise an event.

(I don’t know, this is just me guessing)

Dear UK Players,

We are a Band of Memoire 44 Players in Normandy based in the area of Le Havre in France.

We are organizing the 2nd Normandy Memoire 44 Tournament this week-end.

Since last year, I was wondering if it would be possible to organize something between some UK Players and Normandy Players.

This could be done during a week-end, we could come in your country.

If somebody is willing to try to organize something with us, do not hesitate to contact me.

Best Regards
Vlad

There are also Dutch players who would most probably visit if there were events in the Uk.

But the last years we could not seem to find any.

So "if you organize it we will come." Wink

No English is okay or German or French. I suppose we are not able to explain everything in Swedish, but the challenge is on Cool
