Memoir 44 - A WW2 hex based game with very easy to understand rules, but by the same token very subtle.


The basic games also has Eastern, Pacific and (coming soon) Mediterranean expansions. Enough to keep you gaming through to Christmas!

Mediterranean Theatre expansion pack is now available and is great fun - particularly the "Stiif Upper Lip" rule for the 8th Army! Treat yourself by buying the Desert/Winter board too for a visual treat.

Happy gaming!

So what board games did everyone get?

We got the "Great British Train Game". A general knowledge game based on various destinations in and around GB.

Young fortytwa got an expansion for Memoir 44 - Covering the pacific theatre.

Sneaky japs dug into cave systems in hills. Lusty young US marines with attitude going to get them.

I got Duel in the Dark. Covers the night time bombing of Germany by the RAF and the Luftwaffe response

Happy days

In my view the best of the current M '44 expansions. Really captures the clostrophobic tension of island hopping.

I forgot about Call of Duty - World at War on the PC. Top quality gaming.

Got slaughtered this afternoon defending the cave system at Iwo Jima from the round eyes on a post lunch game of memoir 44

Any reference to sneaky japs should be disregarded. Brave, respectful soldiers.

Death and destruction in the fortytwa household. Business as usual.

Happy days

No boardgames here. We got Wii Fit.

One day, after I have prised my daughter and husband off it, I may get a go ::sigh::

Like all local events Campaign http://www.mkws.org.uk/index.php?s=campaign is well worth supporting. Whether you're looking to buy, browse or be nosey there'll be something new to inspire the painter, modeller and gamer - not to mention loads of books and bargains.

The A&DHBC's President, Chair and both Junior Membership Secretaries will be visiting the Centre MK on Sunday 10th May.
