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 - infantry, paratroopers, tanks, artillery, commandos and resistance fighters - to its 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 (Army Green: Allied Forces; Blue-Gray: Axis/German Forces). You also get a cardholder to share with your ""command staff"" and some time-saving Terrain summary cards.

My wife and I really enjoy playing this game. It was fairly straight forward to learn. Not too complicated. Fairly addicting. This game can take a little while to play - approximately an hour or so. Lots of scenarios to play. I've learned a bit about history playing this game as well. Beautifully made.
