Memoir ’44 Battle Map Volume 3: Sword of Stalingrad

Here comes the third installment in the Battle Maps Series!

The Sword of Stalingrad expansion features 2 large-scale ready-to-play Overlord Scenarios;  2 standard scenarios; new Summary cards for the previously published Battle Maps and Mediterranean Theater expansion; and, for the first time, additional cards for in-game play – the new Combat Deck specifically designed for urban warfare.

Sword of Stalingrad

Holed up in a Grain Elevator overlooking a strategically vital square, you just watched the South  Railway Station change hands 14 times in the past 6 hours. Will you survive the next onslaught?

Rats in a Factory

The Northern Factories: A ghastly place for a battle… heavy metal sheets creaking in the wind. Smart animals flee, leaving only rats to thrive in this burning hell!

The Battle Map series is designed to encourage team play and accommodates up to 8 players; each map comes ready-to-play with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions pre-printed, making set-up a snap.

Battle Map Volume 3 includes 2 standard scenarios that are playable on a regular Memoir ’44 board – Mamayev Kurgan and Pavlov, Hero of the Soviet Union.

Sword of Stalingrad also introduces a new Combat Deck – 20 new cards that the game’s author, Richard Borg has specifically designed for urban warfare. The Combat Deck marks the first time that additional cards have been created for in-game play in the Memoir ’44 system.

Memoir ’44 Battle Map Volume 3 requires 1 copy of Memoir ’44 and the Operation Overlord expansion, or two full copies of Memoir ’44 to play. It is expected to be available late november in both North America and Europe. Retail price is $18/€16. You can preorder your copy now!

    Yessssss! Urban warfare! Me likes! Too bad it will probably not make it for my game-day event on the 14th Nov… oh well I guess I have to plan another one soon after then… :-)

    Looking forward to this expansion – really intersted in the Combat Deck.

  4. Black Knight says:

    Any chance this urban combat deck will be used in future expansions, as well? Sounds like too good an idea to use in just 4 scenarios…

  5. Jana says:

    Love the idea, but dislike the way it will be packaged….I don’t play overlord.

  6. SirKirby says:

    Oh, you’re REALLY missing something if you don’t play Overlord. I never play single boards now — it adds so much more to the game!

  7. Jesse says:

    I’m loving the idea of the new cards! It opens so many exciting new doors for the Memoir ’44 system. Once again, nice work Richard Borg and Days of Wonder! I don’t know what I would do without these great board games and exciting expansions.

  8. 5 star general says:

    Congrats to Richard Borg. Will some of the older scenarios be rewritten so that the new combat deck will be able to be used in them?
