Memoir '44 - D-Day American Landings Battle Report - 6 X 6 Challenge

Amy and I invited several friends over to play a game of Memoir in remembrance of the D-Day Landings 73 years ago.

I wanted to play with 4 maps, but my table isn't big enough for that so we only played 3 of the maps.  I set up the American maps; Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, and the American Airborne.  We had 3 players per side and had a great time with the game.

It took us about 3.5 hours to complete the game (not counting a break for dinner) so I've set the video to play quickly.

The Axis forces start with some bonus points at the beginning of the game so the Allied players have a bit of challenge ahead of them.  However, if the allied player can get a foothold, then they start to take points away from the Axis and the game can swing either way.

In the end, the Axis almost won, but couldn't get the last few victory points before the Allied forces pulled out the 37 points needed for victory.

The final score:

Allies - 37
Axis - 33

I do enjoy the big map games and should try to organize these more often with my gaming group.  If you get a chance, I encourage you to play some of these scenarios.  They add a new level to your Memoir '44 games and are a great experience.

Sorry I didn't get any pictures of the game in process.  I was to busy dealing with the American Airborne troops in my section of the game.  Yikes they are scary.


  1. I'd love to play this megagame some day. Glad to hear it was fun!

    1. If you get a chance, go for it. It is a lot of fun.
