Huge Memoir ’44 Equipment Pack expansion announced, contains 108 figures
Days of Wonder announced the Equipment Pack expansion for Memoir ’44 which looks like it easily contains more plastic than any of the previous expansions for the game. According to the press release the Memoir ’44 Equipment pack contains “108 figures from 4 WWII nations, including French Infantry, Finnish Ski Troops, Italian Artillery and Polish Cavalry; 24 new pieces of Artillery Flak-88’s, “Long Tom” Big Guns, M7 Priests and “Screaming Meemies” Nebelwerfers); new Beach Landing equipment that includes 6 amazing Hobart’s Funnies, complete with accessories; 6 Snipers; and scores of new Armor, Vehicle and Special Weapon Assets, including some Elefant Tank Destroyers, Kübelwagen Command cars, and M2 Mortars and Machine Guns.” Wow, that’s a lot of stuff. Not for those new to the game, the Memoir ’44 Equipment Pack will apparently work best for those that have at least some of the game’s expansions. Memoir ’44 is one of my favorite two player games, making something that resembles a war game accessible enough that you can play it with anyone but strategic and fun enough to scratch that itch as well. The Memoir ’44 Equipment pack releases this August.
