Current Version

All Memoir '44 content is located inside the main module. Scenarios are available in extensions based on their front. The version 10 module is based on previous versions of this module, but the improvements made are not backwards compatible.

1. Scenarios do not show up in the New Game wizard as you are used to from other or previous modules. If you are in the New Game wizard and wish to load a scenario, cancel the dialog. Look under the File menu for the Scenario Chooser item. In there you can find all loaded scenarios.

2. Due to the large number of scenarios to keep up-to-date, and more being added, errors, mistakes and discrepancies creep in. If you notice any crash or problem with a scenario, please report it to bdgza.

Each extension listed above is always the latest version, even if one has a higher or lower version number than another extension. Extensions are updated more frequently than the main module.

Days of Wonder's "Memoir '44"

The module contains content from all Memoir '44 products. If you do not own a certain expansion, ignore the content from that expansion in the module.

Game Etiquette

If you choose the scenario offer to let your opponent choose the side he wishes to play.

When deciding on a card, place it in the center of the board. The other player then moves the card to the discard pile.

Mark the attacker, and mark the target. After the attack, mark the attacker and target as battled (CTRL-B), this will set the attacker to no battle, and the target clear.

Before rolling the dice, declare how many dice you are rolling, and wait for your opponent to agree.

  • Experienced Players: to speed up play, only declare the number of dice before an attack when doing a Close Assault, to give your opponent the chance to play Ambush.
    • NOTE: when playing with Combat Cards, Urban or Winter, you must always declare dice before a combat, even when not Close Assault.

If a roll is done for more than the amount of dice allowed, dice are read left to right.

If there is anything that you are doing that may be unclear visually state it in the chat window before you attack.

At the end of your turn, press the "End Turn" button.

Game Tips

  • How to remove a wire or sandbags?
    • Make sure you have nothing selected (left-click on empty background to make sure if you are not). Shift-left-click on the tile of the wire/sandbags hex. It will select with a black line. Right-click the tile and perform Delete, or use CTRL-D to Delete it.
  • How to add sandbags to a unit?
    • Open Pieces with the Pieces button. Go to the Obstacles tab. Drag the sandbags from the top section onto the game board where you want the sandbags to be.
  • Keep your cards hidden, even in your private hand window. You never know who is looking.
  • How to remove the Raft from a unit?
    • Select only the unit with the Raft. Press CTRL-I to toggle the Raft for the selected unit.
  • How to remove the Battle Star from a unit?
    • Select only the unit with the Battle Star. Press CTRL-G to toggle the Battle Star for the selected unit.
  • How to remove Camouflage from a unit?
    • Select only the unit with the Camouflage. Press CTRL-F to toggle Camouflage for the selected unit. Camouflage is also removed automatically when a unit attacks or moves.
  • How to add/remove the Veteran Star to/from a unit?
    • Select only the unit. Press CTRL-E to toggle the Veteran Star for the selected unit.
  • Where are the unit badges?
    • Badges are always attached to a unit, and are not independent pieces. To select a badge for a unit, select the unit, and press CTRL-[ and CTRL-] to cycle to the correct badge.
  • If you need any markers or obstacles during your game, they can be found with the Pieces button in the toolbar, under the Markers and Obstacles tabs. Drag the marker or obstacle you need from the display onto the board.
  • NIGHT CHART: when using the night chart, it should have been set up on the board. If it is missing, click on the Pieces button in the toolbar, and go to the Setup tab. Drag the small night chart icon onto the board.
  • Overlord: there is an Initiative die underneath the board for each Field General. Right-click it and choose Roll. The die is automatically reset when you click End Turn.
  • PBEM Retreat: right-click the unit that should retreat and choose Retreat Flag (CTRL Q). A retreat flag is attached to the unit. Choose it multiple times to increase the number of flags, or eventually cycle it back to 0. Units with a retreat flag are not ordered when moved, and the retreat flag is automatically removed.
  • MINES: mines have been set up on the board in the scenario setup. Right-click and choose Flip to turn a mine marker over and see it's value. When you do this a random Mines marker is chosen from the stack of available Mines markers. Once a Mines marker has been flipped it's value is set. If you need a random minefield, go to Pieces in the toolbar, and the Setup tab. Drag a Mines marker onto the board.
  • OBJECTIVE MEDALS: right-click a non-Permanent objective medal and choose Capture. The objective medal is marked with a flag, and a placeholder medal is created. Drag this medal with the tiny red flag onto your medal score track. If you ever lose the medal, right-click the placeholder medal and choose Delete. Right-click the objective medal on the board and choose Lose Objective.
  • CAMPAIGNS: don't forget to check out the Campaigns button in the toolbar for some free campaigns.

Custom Code

There are a few custom Java classes in the Memoir '44 Module. They are nothing special and might not be of use to anyone, perhaps even done wrongly, but since they're in the module, I'll put the code here too.
