Memoir ’44 is a war game, designed to commemorate the efforts of the men and women who fought in the Second World War. The game makes use of the Commands & Colors (C&C) game system designed by Richard Borg.
The system is recognisable for utilising battle dice and a shared deck of command cards. The battle dice enable combat to be resolved efficiently. The command cards form the game engine, driving movement and providing orders for Units. They also serve to create a fog of war effect which add to the realism. Games utilising the C&C system also have a game board that is a hex grid. This grid is divided into three sections: Left flank, Centre, and Right flank.
The Pacific Theater expansion pack brings the Japanese Imperial Army to Memoir ’44. The eight, new, historical scenarios focus on military engagements between US and Japanese forces. Including the Guan landings, and operations on Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
