Memoir 44 Board Game Core Set
Memoir '44 is a unique historical game from Days of Wonder where players command a horde of little plastic Army men facing-off in dozens of WWII battles on an oversize hex game board. Each battle scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements and objectives of each army. Deploying forces through a variety of Command cards, the smart commander uses the unique skills of his units to their greatest strength. Easy to learn and fast-paced, Memoir '44 requites strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive, yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory. There are 17 unique historical scenarios, including a monster-size double-board version of Omaha Beach. The game has a double-sided, three section board map of the battlefield, featuring beach landings and countryside terrain. There are 44 lavishly painted double-sided terrain hexes, along with the 3D miniatures and obstacles to go on them. Also included are 60 Command cards, including 20 WWII Tactics cards and 40 troop movement Section cards, and two Army bags of incredibly detailed miniatures. You also get a cardholder to share with your "command staff" and some time-saving Terrain summary cards.

After the initial stage of learning the rules, the game was very straightforward and fun. Would recommend.
As soon as we played this game we realized that we had made a great purchase for our family game collection. We have made our own version of the game as well to suit the younger ones and it has been quite a success that now we mostly play our own version when we play the game. Its a fairly easy game to learn.
Easy to learn. Good game mechanics. Played the first campaign with 6 people and was thoroughly enjoyed. A certain amount of luck generated from the dice rolls, but then carefully chosen command cards augment that luck with skill, forethought and preparation.
Play the first 8 campaigns in one sitting. Rules are nice and easy to learn. Definitely going to buy expansion packs.
Very cool game
