Haus Rules – the Cambush

Monday, January 14th, 2008

At the Memoir ‘44 forums Doc Halloween has asked an interesting question… What house rules do you play with? In general, I play strictly by the rules printed with a few exceptions where I think the rule is wrong (Special Forces infantry on a road) or completely broken (Big Guns, SP Artillery).

Of course, I have also tinkered with my own additive rules which I’ll share in installments then perhaps put into a complete document. So for my first installment I’d like to introduce the Cambush rule…

If a unit is camouflaged and is about to be attacked, it may roll 1 die, if the result is a Star, it gets to conduct an ambush.

Happy New Year !

I hope everyone had a pleasant holidays. Mine was busy and I will be releasing my ‘Making your own M’44 dice’ tutorial shortly (had to do some further experimentation). Hope everyone is having fun with the new Air Pack! 2008 looks to be a banner year for Memoir. With the British Expansion (very much anticipated) and a few other goodies there will be plenty of reasons to have M’44 on your gaming table!

Memoir '44 dice

I’ve now tested out a couple of different methods of making these. Download the tutorial from the Depot. In it, I show how to do a very sharp job of it using decal paper and, after a successful test, how to do it using ordinary paper. I also have a number of different Nation dice to use if you don’t like the standard ones.
