Pandemic Thu, 19 March 2020 10:41
Hello all players,
As you know because of the pandemic of coronavirus, in several countries most of us have to stay at home.
So in order to pass the time and to keep good spirits, I propose you a new scenario each week until the end of this crisis.
Stay optimistic and take care ! Smile
Jdrommel.

Thank you , Jacques. An very inspiring idea!

Just checking: In order to win, the Allies must kill all 5 German Infantries and take the bridge?

Jacques , in the Special Rules section it states:
Quote:

Use "Sniper" rules (Troop 10) to the two Axis infantry units with a single figure. Their loss is a victory medal as other units.


So it appears that in this scenario, unlike in most cases, a SNIPER UNIT will also count as a medal. Or am I reading this incorrectly?

If the snipers count for medals, it looks like there are 8 medals available, so you don't necessarily have to kill all the infantry units to win.

Yes, you are right, it's because I forgot one sentence about the snipers in the former french version. Sorry for that ! Confused

Hello all,
Third week to stay at home, so third scenario.
It's an Overlord scenario, using NFP rules (or not).

Once again, take care of you and your family. Smile

Re:Pandemic Mon, 30 March 2020 23:14
I just bought the new expansion pack We do not seem to have all the pieces to actually play the game I have a Memoir 44 original edition from 2004. What other expansion pack do I need to buy to be able to play this new game. For example, I do not have any pieces for mine fields,mortars, snipers, elite infantry, lake markers,combat engineers, AT guns, machine guns etc. Is there another expansion pack I need that has all of those markers, indicators?

You will find most of the terrain tiles in the Terrain Pack expansion. Some badges and mines are there too.

A lot of other badges can be found in the Winter Wars expansion.

To play an Overlord using all the Overlord rules you need the Overlord Deck of the Operation Overlord expansion. If you do not own that expansion you can take 2 standard decks.

If you have only 1 base game you can use poker chips to substitute figurines : e.g. 3 poker chips with a soldier on top represent an infantry unit, 2 poker chips with a tank on top represent an armor unit, etc... Decrease the number of chips to take hits.

You can even use 1 standard deck : a left flank card is to be played in 1 of the 2 left sections, a center card in 1 of the 2 center sections, etc...

If you don't have the badges just take pieces of another game and use them as a marker : e.g. take the track pieces of Ticket to Ride and use a red one as a marker for a machine gun, a yellow one as a marker for a mortar, etc...

You can find all the rules online on the DoW website in the Memoir section.

Enjoy the game !

John52, on the memoir44.com home page, click the "Rules & Goodies" link, and look for the "First Edition of the Overlord rules." Download in your favorite language.

And yes, Overlord with a single standard deck is perfectly fine. I played it many times before the Overlord expansion came out.

jdrommel, this looks like a really good one, and well designed for NFP. (Thank you for limiting the damage that a plane can do on the first turn!) I'm looking forward to trying it.

Sounds good, I ordered the Overlord edition today. Is there different rules I need as well for the new air power expansion. I have the rules they sent. But my son said there is some different rules we may also need? This is very cool I found this forum. My boys love this game and it is cool to get info from the experts.
Thank you

John52, there was an earlier Air Pack expansion around 2009. New Flight Plan replaces that.

Great that you and your boys have discovered Memoir and this Forum. Now, wait 'til you all discover Memoir Online, too. Smile

Thank you again so much for doing this. It’s certainly one thing to look forward to in these trying times.

If you’re open to suggestions Razz ; I would love to see a scenario capturing the amazing efforts of the U.S. 442nd (all Japanese-American unit) to rescue the “Lost Battalion” (the 36th “Texan” division) in the Vosges Mountains on Oct. 26, 1944. I have not seen any scenarios in the database capturing this incredible battle.

Cheers!

Hello all,

Yesterday was the last day of the confining (confinement?) period in France.
I saw that several countries made the same more or less during this month, so I will stop to publish a new scenario per week, as I said nine weeks ago.
I hope these scenarios had given you some pleasure during this critical period.
But for my own pleasure, I give you a last one.

https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/editor/view/?id=21617

Take care of you, the virus is always present among us.

Smile

Jdrommel.
