Memoir '44 Game
The sound of gunfire echoes across the living room. A sudden crash - the dice deliver a death sentence to two more men in Bravo squad. Under a hail of bullets, the plastic figurines dive for cover, running back toward the crashing waves. The Allies won't be taking Omaha Beach without a fight.
This, commander, is one of many scenarios that you and your troops may come up against in the fight against our foe. We have 16 operations planned out for this waracross France and Germany. Each battlefield is made up of many varied types of terrain which you will have to plan around. Rivers, towns, forests, and obstacles (such as bunkers, sandbags, and wire) all offer unique strategic options to your (and your enemy's) forces. Throughout these excursions, you'll have access to three divisions of our military: Infantry, Armor, and Artillery. Each has advantages and disadvantages and must be used carefully. During each battle, Headquarters will be relaying several strategic options to you. You will choose one of these options to advancethrough the center of the battlefield and on the right and left flanks. Once your units are in position and close enough to an enemy target, you'll be able to attack and drive them from the battlefield! The road to victory is, of course, varied; you may be required to take key locations or eliminate enemy forces to gain victory. If you are able to succeed, you will crush the enemy resistance before it has a chance! You'll need to plan your strategy carefully - certain operations will give you and your foe wildly different options, and we aren't able to intercept your opponent's tactical orders. Whenever you're ready, commander, the troops are waiting for you. Let's bring this war to an end.
Apart from being a unique strategy game, Memoir '44's application as an interactive historical supplement is unparalleled. Every historically-accurate scenario has its own description detailing the planned events of that day, including the outcome - though depending on which player wins the game, you may end up rewriting history! For 2 players. 30-60 minutes.
