  • Historical combat game of armies battling in stylized World War 2 skirmishes
  • Innovative color dice system that promotes aggressive and flexible play
  • Over 15 complete battle scenarios with a double-sided hex board

Historical wargames have an undeserved reputation for being a little, well, joyless. Rank after rank of tiny Napoleonic footmen, wobbling on styrofoam hillocks, while two portly generals argue over the correct placement of a tape measure. Thankfully, Memoir '44 is nothing of the sort. Yes, it is thematically and commemoratively linked to those who fought bravely in World War 2, but it does not let the history overpower the fun. With a slew of marvelous miniatures and an innovative (and oft-copied) combat system, the 15 complete battle scenarios provide a gamut of gaming that will keep you busy for months. Throw in the online scenarios, and you'll be returning to the battlefield time and time again. Fast-paced and pleasingly strategic, you're never bogged down in the rules or neutered by the setting. War has never been so much fun!
