Memoir 44 Overlord: 7.7

Memoir '44 is a historical board game where players face off in stylized battles of some of the most famous historic battles of World War II including Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Operation Cobra, and the Ardennes.

Memoir '44 includes over 15 different battle scenarios and features a double-sided hex game board for both beach landings and countryside combat. Each scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements, and objectives of each army. Commanders deploy troops through Command and Tactic cards, applying the unique skills of their units -- infantry, paratrooper, tank, artillery, and even resistance fighters -- to their greatest strength.

"By design, the game is not overly complex", says Memoir '44 designer, Richard Borg. "The game mechanics, although simple, still require strategic card play, timely dice rolling, and an aggressive yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory." In addition to the large, double-sided gameboard, Memoir '44 includes 144 amazingly detailed army miniatures - including historically accurate infantry, tanks, and artillery; 36 Obstacle pieces, 60 illustrated Command cards, 44 Special Terrain tiles, and 8 Custom Wooden dice.

Memoir '44 is designed for 2 players but easily accommodates team play. And with Memoir '44 Overlord scenarios, players can use multiple boards and up to 8 players to conduct large-scale operations, experiencing the challenges of troop coordination and military chain of command on a large-scale battlefield. The average game length is between 30 and 60 minutes, encouraging match play where players can command first one side and then the other.

The Memoir '44 series consists of the base game and a number of expansions.

This supplement of Memoir '44 offers experienced players the unique opportunity to replay historical WWII battles on a grand scale, with up to four players to a side.

This style of play, called Memoir '44 Overlord, combines multiple board maps into a single, oversized battlefield. To play it requires this free downloadable game supplement and at least two copies of the game.

With Memoir '44 Overlord, players can experience the frustrations associated with being part of a military-style WWII chain of command and, at the same time, enjoy the challenges of coordination and cooperation needed to gain victory.

This game is based on Richard Borg's Command and Colors system.

Join this group on May 27th @ 2 pm to play this game. No experience is needed as you can come to learn. See ya soon!
