68 years ago today, Allied forces unleashed over 150,000 men and thousands of tons of equipment along the coast of Normandy.
This year on the anniversary of D-Day, Days of Wonder announces the Memoir ’44 Equipment Pack. This is a major expansion to the Memoir ’44 game system and fills a game box as big as the original board game.
186 plastic figures in total, the Equipment Pack includes: 108 figures from 4 WWII nations, including French Infantry, Finnish Ski Troops, Italian Artillery and Polish Cavalry; 24 new pieces of Artillery (Flak-88’s, “Long Tom” Big Guns, M7 Priests and “Screaming Meemies” Nebelwerfers); new Beach Landing equipment that includes 6 amazing Hobart’s Funnies, complete with accessories; 6 Snipers; and scores of new Armor, Vehicle and Special Weapon Assets, including some Elefant Tank Destroyers, Kübelwagen Command cars, and M2 Mortars and Machine Guns.
These figures can be deployed over many of the existing Memoir ’44 scenarios and are also heavily featured in the 11 Standard, 2 Breakthrough and 4 Overlord new scenarios that come in the Equipment Pack. A Rules booklet and 25 Summary cards complement this pack.
At least one copy of the Memoir ’44 base game and many of its expansions are required to enjoy most of the included scenarios. We highly recommend that, for visual accuracy, players at minimum own the Terrain Pack and the Winter/Desert board.
The Memoir ’44 Equipment Pack expansion is expected to be available in time for Gencon and at better game stores in North America in August, and in Europe in September.
