International Favorites!

Memoir'44, like its cousins from other eras (Battle Cry, BattleLore, and Commands & Colors: Ancients), combines a strong element of strategy with just the right amount of luck from cards and dice. Now in its seventh year of distribution, new expansions continue to keep it a vibrant and growing game. Over 200 official scenarios have now been published.

This year's WBC scenarios were specially chosen by a panel of world-class players from seven countries, including two contributors to the Campaign Book, three players who live near sites of major WWII battles, leaders of Memoir '44 organizations as far away as Moscow and Indonesia, and Richard Borg, the creator of the game.

4th Round, Escape Via the Coastal Road - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4241

5th Round, Sugar Loaf & Half Moon - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1518

6th Round, Gates of Moscow - http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1325

We will play the original versions of all scenarios, not the Air Pack versions. Air Rules will not be used. Copies of all scenarios, and summaries of the scenarios' special rules, will be available at the tournament.

The scenarios for Rounds 1-3 are all played with just the base game. Rounds 4-6 are from the Mediterranean, Pacific, and Eastern expansions, respectively. (With a bit of creative substitution, even these scenarios can be played using the base game.)

Rules for the expansions are available on the Memoir '44 website, http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/content/rules/

TOURNAMENT FORMAT

The schedule for Memoir '44 will be similar to previous years. The format 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 in the Mulligan 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 the two games wins the match. In the case of a tie, the player who inflicts the most casualties on his opponent wins. In Rounds 3 and later, cumulative wins and cumulative medals will serve as additional tie breakers, if necessary. The final tie-breaker for all rounds will be a number drawn at random by the player upon registering for the tournament, with players who bring games being rewarded with higher numbers.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

The GM thanks Bayernkini (Germany), Brummbar (Canada), JJAZ (Belgium), Longbearder (Russia), Steve Nightrain (Indonesia), Yangtze (England), and Richard Borg (Supreme Commander) for selecting the scenarios.
