  Memoir ’44: Commemorate VE-Day with four new scenarios Wed, 06 May 2015 15:31
On May 8, 1945, after 6 years of war, the German Wehrmacht surrendered to the Allies in Berlin. War in Europe was finally over. 1945, however, saw the final throes of a powerful military; as the American and British forces pushed forward on the western front, Soviet forces advanced tirelessly from the east, closing in on Berlin. Struggling to defend their homeland, German soldiers proved to be fierce warriors, even when outnumbered or encircled. The war would not end as easily as expected.

Now, 70 years after the end of the war in Europe, Richard Borg & the Days of Wonder Team are happy to offer you four new scenarios to commemorate the last battles of 1945. Relieve the men of the 79th US Infantry trapped in the two encircled towns of Hatten & Rittershof; take command of the 44th British Brigade and its flamethrower tanks during Operation Veritable; cross the Rhine with the men of the “All American” 82nd Airborne; or gather your friends to assault – or defend – the infamous Seelow Heights, last line of defense before Berlin, in a massive Overlord battle.

http://blog.daysofwonder.com/wp-content/dow-uploads/2015/05/blog-M44-veday-en.jpg


Here at HQ, we’ve printed up your new orders in a leaflet that will be available in May from the Days of Wonder web store for free (plus shipping & handling), as well as from some retailers in Europe. This leaflet will also be available at game conventions where Days of Wonder or its representatives are present. Last but not least, you can also download it from our website.

Note: Sargeant Frank recommends adding the VE-Day Scenarios to an order with another game or expansion to reduce your shipping costs from the Days of Wonder web store.

This expansion is not a standalone game and requires at least one original copy of Memoir ’44. The standard scenarios also require several Memoir ’44 expansions and the Seelow Heights Overlord scenario requires at least one additional copy of Memoir ’44 and two Eastern Front expansions, as well as other items from various expansions.


Erratum: In scenario #1, "Hatten & Rittershofen" the Mobile Artillery Unit (bottom left of the board) should be an Allied unit, not an Axis one (the Special Rules text is correct).

Fantastic!

What a great initiative to commemorate VE-Day !!!

I can't wait to set those scenarios up and play them.
No doubt in my mind which scenarios will be setup to play on our next meeting in Melle (May 22nd) and perhaps in Louvain-la-Neuve (May 29th) as well.

Thank you guys at DOW!

Seelow Heights look very fun.

I tried to purchase (P&P only) direct from DoW Euro Online Strore site but can't get past the Payment page.

Anyone else having problems or is it me / my PC?

Achtung Panzer: We indeed had a little issue with the European webstore... Everything should be OK by now... Can you please try again and tell us if it worked for you?

BTW, there's a typo on scenario #1, "Hatten & Rittershofen". The Mobile Artillery Unit (bottom left of the board) should be an Allied unit, not an Axis one (the Special Rules text is correct).

Sorry about that Sad

Cool, new scenarios. Too bad supported infantry and armor aren't featured.

I like how the minefields are presented in the special rules showing the used values. By the way, the third scenario (Hitdorf?) setup order lacks minefields.

It looks really cool, but I'm trying to figure out how to print each of the 6 pages on a separate page, in roughly the proper size.

Franck, would it be possible to post a 6-page version?

Tried out Hitdorf solo yesterday.

Trying to utilize the sniper early on, but the German troops went up close and personal fast so had to respond with the Allied units closer to the front.

Germans went up the flanks and assaulted the forward Allied units. The overwhelming firepower of the coordinated attacks by the German troops proved too much for the Allied forces and the score ended up 6-4.

A fun attacker-defender scenario where the Germans really went all in and it paid off.

Thanks for giving us new scenarios.

I'm afraid that's all I have...
The file is a low-res version of what we use to print the leaflet
Just in case you missed it, a printed version is available for free from our webstore (I don't know how much the shipping cost totals for your location, but it mustn't be that far from the cost of printing it yourself...)

Franck,

Do you know if the printed version is six pages in length?


Thanks in advance.

Based on the PDF version, it looks like the book was printed as a 6-page book, though it isn't that many actual pieces of paper since it's printed front/back.

The pages are numbered for it to be folded in thirds. With scenarios 1-2-3 facind you, fold #3 toward yourself first, then fold #1 toward yourself. You'll have the front cover facing you. So it's the size of 3 sheets of paper laid next to each other -- not available in stationery stores, but easy for commercial printing presses. Smile

Ok, I was able to download the PDF onto my computer, then open it up in Paint. There, I selected, cropped, and printed each page individually. (Could have saved each page separately, and then appended them into a single 6-page document, but thought of that too late.)

This may sound stupid, but does anyone have a list of what expansions are needed for each map?

It's actually across the top of each page. While I don't have the downloaded copy in front of me (I'm at work), you can download it and check it out!

Or, if you have Equipment Pack, that will fill all the needs for special units.

Its the minimum requirement to play.
If you want things visual correct for the overlord you also need the Pacific theater for the two trenches and a total of 3 Eastern front pack for the Russian infantry (you're 12 figures short)

But that's just for the purists Rolling Eyes Laughing

I realized they were across the top of the maps after I posted. It bothered me all day that I pulled such a rookie mistake.

Of course the trenches from the Pacific Theater are also in the Air Pack (if you have that).

My printed copy arrived today Very Happy

It's a three page sheet with two folds. The protective envelope did a fair job of withstanding an afternoon downpour. Bit of water damage; nothing too bad.

Let's set this up!

The protective envelope mine was in did little to stop the damage from the mail service. A padded plastic envelope was folded in half, rubber banded and had several punctures and creases. It looks like someone's dog got a hold of it. Oh well .....that's the USPS.

Sam, we've replaced the PDF file with a new version (with one scenario per page) which should be easier to print...

Not sure what you meant V Disc, but now the files are 6 pages long Wink

I got mine today, they should have included a couple pieces of cardboard and sandwiched the paper between the cardboard. It looked like someone had sat on it. Oh well, it's playable anyway. Not that I'm complaining, I like the scenarios. No problem, kymayer, I've probably made the same mistake. Thanks again, DoW, this is another reason there are 3 DoW games and all of the M44 expansions but the bag in my gaming closet and on the "stack" in the man-cave.
