Memoir ‘44: Mediterranean Theater, Coming in October
Fans of Memoir ‘44 have been pining for British troops practically since the day the game was announced, and their wishes will finally come true thanks to the forthcoming Mediterranean Theater expansion. In addition to the British army figures (and the rules to govern them), this expansion includes rules for the Italian army as well as a new class of Special Weapon Assets that are embedded in infantry units.
Memoir ‘44: Mediterranean Theater includes 75 new figures (42 British infantry, 24 Crusader Tanks, six 25-pounder field guns, and three anti-tank Special Weapon Assets), 44 new double-sided terrain tiles, eight historical scenarios in North Africa, and new obstacles, markers and Special Forces badges. Says Eric Hautemont, Days of Wonder CEO, in a press release accompanying this announcement, “This expansion is just the next step in our ongoing development and support of the Memoir ‘44 game system.”
