Based on designer Richard Borg's Commands and Colors system, Memoir '44 includes over 15 different battle scenarios and features a double-sided hex game board for both beach landings and countryside combat.
Each scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements and objectives of each army.
Commanders deploy troops through Command and Tactic cards, applying the unique skills of his units infantry, paratrooper, tank, artillery, and even resistance fighters to their greatest strength.
The game mechanics, although simple, still require strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory.
In addition to the large, double-sided game-board, Memoir '44 includes 144 amazingly detailed army miniatures - including historically accurate infantry, tanks, artillery and obstacle pieces.
An involving but approachable and quick playing war-game with Days of Wonder's typically lavish production quality.
