WBC Campaign 2009 moves to the Bulge

The format for Memoir '44 will be a projected six rounds, Single Elimination with a Mulligan Round. The Mulligan Round will be from 9 PM to 11 PM on Thursday and the Demo will precede the Mulligan Round at 8 PM. Winners of this round are excused from Round 1 the next day and can rejoin the event in Round 2 at 11 AM Friday. Losers of the Mulligan Round can rejoin the event fresh in Round 1 at 9 AM Friday. The tournament will then run continuously for the rest of Friday. Based on the estimated number of players, there will probably be six Single Elimination rounds. In each round players play twice against each other, switching sides. Best total medal count for both games wins the match. In the case of a tie, the player who inflicts the most casualties on his opponent wins. A final tie breaker will be drawn at random upon registering for the tournament, with players who bring games being rewarded with higher tie breaker numbers. The theme for this year's tournament will be the Battle of the Bulge. We will be playing with scenarios from the Air Pack expansion & the Xmas '07 Scenario Baraque de Fraiture, but the Air Rules will only be in effect in the 6th round.

All of the scenarios are designed to use the Winter/Desert board and Eastern Front terrain pieces but may be played with the basic Memoir '44 board and terrain.  The mountains used in the St. Vith scenario are from the Terrain expansion packs, but these hexes are impassable.and, therefore, these hexes may be indicated by using markers during set-up if you do not own the terrain pack.

1st Round - Twin Villages(Western Front 26)
2nd Round - St. Vith (Western Front 27)
3rd Round - Baraque de Fraiture (Xmas '07 Scenario)
4th Round - Relief of Peiper (Western Front 28)
5th Round - Bastogne Corridor West (Western Front 29)
6th Round - Bastogne Corridor East (Western Front 30) - Air Rules

All Scenarios, except Baraque de Fraiture, are versions published as part of the Air Pack Expansion.

Mark Yoshikawa will also GM a Teen version of the game Wednesday evening at 9 PM in Heritage for those 12 and over for experienced players only. Rules will NOT be taught. Prizes will be awarded. NO plaque is available.
