Asmodee has not only taken over this game, but another favorite of mine, Tide of Iron. There was talk of a Pacific Expansion for TOI under the 1A leadership, but now, nothing has been heard for at least a year. I hope their support for Memoir isn't as spotty as it has been for Tide of Iron.

Maybe we forget one thing?
A company must make a profit, maybe that is the problem there is just to few sales on memoir 44 expansions and reprints?

Who wants to go in to much trouble for making 5 dollars?

I have no idea about the copies they released of Khalkhin Ghol and the actual demand.

Sure it's frustrating for people that find trouble to buy new releases, but let's face it Producing, Shipping websites and Personal cost also a lot of money.

I noticed in my country how many shops closed the last years that where selling board games that where not in the main stream.

Well, I disagree JJAZ.
Companies need to lose money as well so they get around paying taxes.
One offsets the other so the company comes out ahead paying a lot less tax to the government.

50th, Bill at 1A was just starting to work on the Pacific with TOI. I don't even think he knew if it would b 1 or 2 expansions.
The real crime is that 1A had cleaned up the British expansion and was ready to print when the licensing plug was pulled. Now, FF/A sits on a DOTF Next Wave but probably won't print it. Mad
Hopefully with all these "mergers" the product lines will thrive as a larger company doesn't have the same financial risks as the two smaller ones did.

I see the need for reprinting the army boxes, terrain, separate maps and base game only.

The battle maps, d-day landings and campaign books should be one offs.
PDFs of the scenarios should be made available though so with the base game and terrain pack the maps can be made.

The real problem is the card decks. These Must be redone for those wishing to do breakthrough, overlord and winter/urban fighting.

I don't see why they can't print them and sell them like they do all the Living Card Games.
Deck packs are not only cheaper to produce but warehouse and ship.

Just hoping the system survives. (both really)

I prefer making money and pay lots of taxes actually Twisted Evil

You have a point there but still I believe the demand is smaller then we all think.
And don't forget even for the cards 1 language is not enough to print these.

Demand would be higher than what "traditional war-game" companies see.

As for languages, all the work is done and just needs to be sent to the printer.
