Memoir ’44

(3 customer reviews)


Bring World War 2 to your table in Memoir ’44, the strategic wargame that is light enough for anyone to pick up.


Take to the battlefields of World War 2 with the award winning and simple but strategic Memoir ’44.

Through the use of Command cards and Tactic cards, players command either the Axis forces or the Allies in more than 15 famous battles across Western Europe, such as Omaha Beach and the Ardennes.

With a modular board and terrain tokens that combine to allow each scenario to be set up in its own unique way, Memoir ’44 uses plastic figurines to represent infantry, armour, and artillery.

Although primarily a 2-player game, Memoir ’44 can accommodate team play, and multiple boards can also be lined up end on end for a larger scale conflict.

With a short play time and plenty of different scenarios, Memoir ’44 is a highly replayable and highly customisable game that is bound to excite!

  1. Mark

    A simple implementation of a WWII board game.

    Simple game mechanics that children can quickly adopt.

    16 scenarios in the base game with many expansions available to purchase, and more scenarios available from the Days of Wonder website.
