Description

From the opening minutes of D-Day to the liberation of Paris and beyond - Memoir '44? airdrops you into the key battles that turned the tide in Western Europe. Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Ardennes... You'll command your tropps in battlefields that defined history in the 20th century.

Memoir '44 is a unique historical game where players face-off in over a dozen WWII battles on an oversize hex game board. Each battle scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements and objectives of each army. Deploying his forces through a variety of Command and Tactics cards, the smart commander uses the unique skills of his units - infantry, paratrooper, tank, artillery, and even resistance fighters - to its greatest strength.

Easy to learn and fast-paced, Memoir '44 requires strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive, yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory.

Note: while this is normally a two-player games, the bonus team-play scenario accommodates team-play for 8 players.
