On June 4th the club replayed the DDay landings using the Memoir 44 expansions . Wayne and Lynette provided all the maps some 14 feet long , laminated playing aids and explained all the chrome covering reinforcements, special artillery effects and specialist troops. Thanks for all their hard work
We had players for each beach and the airborne landings. it was a great day played in a friendly spirit.
Being a masochist I played Omaha and got a very warm receptions from the dug in Germans on the cliffs, further enhanced by them drawing 2 firefight cards which increased their shooting. The survivors regrouped and combat engineers landed to clear the cliffs supported by barrage cards which suppressedthe most heavily defended positions and the 88mm nests.
The game was a narrow victory for the allies and was the most enjoyable large game I have played in a long time.
