Memoir '44 is a unique historical boardgame, which
allows players to effectively portray stylized WWII battles.
Like its cousin ACW Battle Cry, Memoir '44 WWII games
play to a conclusion in an hour or less.
The format for Memoir '44 will be a predicted seven
rounds, Single Elimination with a Mulligan Round. The Mulligan
Round will be from 9AM to 11 AM on Thursday. The 1st Single Elimination
Round will be at 9 AM Friday. The tournament will then run continuously
for the rest of Friday. Based on the estimated number of players,
there will probably be seven Single Elimination rounds. Each
round players play twice against each other, switching sides.
Best total medal count for both games wins the match. In the
case of a tie, the player who inflicts the most casualties on
his opponent wins. A final tie breaker will be drawn at random
upon registering for the tournament, with players who bring games
being rewarded with higher tie breaker numbers. Players who bring
the Eastern Front Expansion will be able to draw two tie breaker
numbers and keep the highest number.
The theme for this year's tournament is The Eastern Front.
The first four rounds of the Tournament will use brand new scenarios:
- [Barbarossa] Russian Breakout
7/22/41 - [Barbarossa] Lipovec;
9/26-29/1941 - [Barbarossa] Sea of Azov
11/25-26/1941 - [Barbarossa] Battle for Rostov.
Days of Wonder is providing a booklet including all four scenarios
to each participant in the tournament.
The remaining three Scenarios will be chosen from the Eastern
Front Expansion for Memoir '44.
