Are you ready for your battlefield promotion? Willing to take command with your field commanders in expanded Memoir ’44 gameplay? Then move up the ranks with the Operation Overlord and the Overlord BattleMap expansions and prepare for your biggest Memoir battles yet!
Many fans say that the most fun they have playing is when playing Memoir ’44 Overlord scenarios with a group of friends or at a convention. The downside was always the long setup or the need to combine cards and figures from two different copies of the game. These two new expansions not only remove those barriers, but take Memoir ’44 Overlord to the next level of fun.
The Operation Overlord expansion was specifically created to aid setup and enhance the play of multi-player Overlord scenarios Included are: 2 special decks of updated Command cards that provide players with the correct card makeup for Overlord games, 2 punchboards of Army figure tokens that are used to represent figures from different nations and make it possible to play Overlord with only a single copy of the base game. Also included are 8 Memoir ’44 dice for the additional players and an updated version of the Overlord Rules.
The Hedgerow Hell Memoir ’44 Overlord BattleMap expansion includes a large-scale, double-sided map with two new Memoir ’44 Overlord Scenario’s – Hedgerow Hell and The Cadets of Saumur, plus 6 new Dodge Truck miniature figures. The oversized map, which is 57 x 27.5 inches in size, is ready-to-play with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions pre-printed – just add figures! It also features the scenario rules, terrain and unit summary cards, and historical background.
Perfect for group play at home or gaming events with fellow Memoir ’44 friends, the Overlord BattleMap series is designed for 2 to 8 players and requires either 1 copy of the original Memoir ’44 board game, plus the Operation Overlord Expansion; or 2 copies of the board game.
Operation Overlord and the Hedgerow Hell Overlord BattleMap expansion will be available in early October from the Days of Wonder web site and your local game retailer. You can preorder yours now from the Days of Wonder Web Store.
Operation Overlord and the Hedgerow Hell BattleMap will debut this week at GenCon in Indianapolis. A limited number of copies will be available at the Days of Wonder Booth #121.
