From the cliffs of Pointe-du-Hoc to the hedgerow battles in the Corentin Peninsula and beyond -- Memoir '44 airdrops you into the key battles that turned the tide in Western Europe during the summer of 1944.

Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Operation Cobra... Step in and command your troops on the battlefields that defined History in the 20th century! Memoir '44 is a unique historical game 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 -- infantry, paratroopers, tanks, artillery, commandos and resistance fighters -- to its greatest strength. Easy to learn and fast-paced, Memoir '44 requires strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive, yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory!

Truly one of the great crossover games
Nice bits, great production, lots of scenario play.


Memoir is one of those games you can get anyone who has even a remote borderline interest in conflict games to play--and a lot of times you can get people *not* interested in that sort of thing to play it anyway (note how BGG embraced it, even in the early days.)


It could use more depth from a base game level, but the combat is fast and fun. You'll curse your luck with drawing cards you don't need, but chalk that up to the vagaries of communication on the battlefield.


A great game that doesn't really see as much play as it should, but this is a fantastic design.
