Memoir ’44 Breakthrough Expansion

Go deep behind enemy lines at Sword Beach as you airdrop in to capture the bridges of the Orne… Join Guderian’s famed Panzers as they battle the armored columns of the British Expeditionary Forces… Sign on for Operation Crusader to take on Rommel in the deserts of North Africa and liberate the garrison in Tobruk…

The Memoir ’44 Breakthrough Expansion will take you deep into the battles of World War II with two, double-sided, 9-panel board maps covering all four Memoir ’44 map environments – countryside, beach, winter and deserts. These oversize boards stretch the limit of current printing technology and are 13 x 17 hexes deep, opening up the Breakthrough format to new, more expansive scenarios.

The Breakthrough Expansion includes 15, never-in-print-before scenarios, created by Jacques “jdRommel” David, and Memoir ’44 author, Richard Borg. These scenarios cover the Western and Eastern Fronts, as well as the Mediterranean and Pacific Theaters and include classic battles such as: Operation Crusader; Operation Amherst; and two different renditions of Sword Beach – all designed for the 13 x 17 hex Breakthrough format.

The Memoir ’44 Breakthrough Expansion is an expansion for 2 players and requires a copy of Memoir ’44. Depending on the scenario being played, additional expansions are highly recommended to fully enjoy the new Breakthrough maps, although players can substitute game pieces if they don’t own a specified expansion. The Memoir ’44 Breakthrough expansion will be available in April in Europe and in early May in North America from your favorite Memoir ’44 retailer and the Days of Wonder Web Store.

  2. I’m a bit dissappointed….. nothing for free this time?
    Well, I think I buy it anyway!

    It does say:
    “includes 15, never-in-print-before scenarios, created by Jacques “jdRommel” David, and Memoir ‘44 author, Richard Borg”, which seems like a nice bonus.
    I am looking forward to this.

    Ooh! Shiney!

  8. Winter Storm says:

    Nice! Much better than paper ones…I think that a lot of people would be interested … shame that I can only play about once a month!

  9. Jesse Rasmussen says:

    From the news release, it looks like the maps will be on cardboard just like the base board…except instead of being a 6-part board, it’ll be a 9-part board! We’ll want to be careful when we’re unfolding the map. I can’t even picture how it unfolds to be that big.

  10. Robert Zimmer says:

    Any idea of how much they will cost in US$? I’m with Jim O’Neal!! Memior is my favoritw game and I own 3 sets and all the expansions. :-)

  11. Robert Zimmer says:

    …I wouldnt mind seeing modular boards like Tide of Iron either.

  12. Jesse Rasmussen says:

    Hey Robert,

    If you go to the web store you’ll notice that it costs $30. So for you that’ll be $90 since you need three copies!

    Interesting, but how is this going to tie up with Sword of Stanlingrad combat cards or with other upcoming releases?
