Win a copy of Dire Heroes

Memoir ’44 owners – For those of you not aware, I have made a rule book that uses a standard Memoir ’44 set for the 2nd Battle of Ypres during the Great War.  The game is called Dire Heroes – Gas Attack at Ypres.  The rules are not the same as Memoir ’44, though I have kept them simple in keeping with the spirit of that game.

If you own a copy of Memoir ’44, you practically own this game. All you need is a copy of the rule book (which will be available shortly through this site).  In the meantime, I have made a little contest in which you can win a free copy. Visit the entry for the game on for details and good luck!

Dire Heroes – now in production

Dire Heroes - Gas Attack at Ypres

As some of you may already know, I have been busy working on a project of my own.  It’s a First World War game that can be played with a standard Memoir ’44 set.  It’s called Dire Heroes – Gas Attack at Ypres.  For those not familiar with the 2nd Battle of Ypres, here is where the first effective gas attack was launched in modern warfare.  The game opens with the gas attack.  From there players try to force the capitulation of their opponent through a Military or Morale Victory.

The game is now in production and I hope to offer it up soon.  In the meantime, check out the Dire Heroes dice sheet that you can use to make your own set of dice (I’m looking into a source for indented dice, will keep you info’d).  Of course, feel free to download my Memoir ’44 dice making tutorial to see what I am talking about.
