West of the Dauphiné Alps, the Vercors Plateau forms a 3,000 feet high natural fortress with limited access to the outside world. Following the invasion of France’s Zone Libre by German and Italian armies, elements of the now disbanded Army of the Armistice found in Vercors the perfect base of operations from which to continue harassing the German occupier and its despised ally, the French Milice…
So begins the background to the Vercors Campaign – five new scenarios created by Jacques “jdrommel” David that highlight the heroic Maquisards of the French Resistance and their battle against overwhelming SS forces on the Vercors Plateau in the summer of 1944. As with all Memoir ’44 Campaigns, victory is earned over multiple battles with the outcome of each scenario determining the circumstances of the next.
While supplies last, this full-color, mini-expansion will be given away free at participating hobby game retailers or to customers who purchase any Memoir ’44 product the Days of Wonder online web store.
The Vercors Campaign will automatically be included in any order from the Days of Wonder web store that includes a Memoir ’44 product. This also includes any pre-orders for the new Sword of Stalingrad expansion expected to ship December 1 (so if you’ve already placed a pre-order, don’t worry it’ll get added automatically!). Expect the Vercors Campaign in retail stores in North America and Europe beginning in mid November. In Europe, both French and English versions will be available; In North America, only English will be available from the web store, but retailers in Quebec will have copies of the French version.
