For those interested, Days of Wonder, annouced the release of their 4th expansion for Memoir '44: Pacific Theatre!

I've mentioned this game before. It is a fast fun game with little green army men (and tanks and artillery) to push around. Much like Axis and Allies but a much faster, tactical battle instead of the long strategy game. The mechanics are simple but the games are pretty intricate. Plus, I just discovered an on-line version of the game if anyone is up to playing sometime.

Memoir 44 is best as a two player game. Each general commands his side of the battlefield which is divided in three areas - right flank, center, and left flank. Cards tell you which units to move in which areas and dice resolve battle.

For multi-player games, two boards are put side be side (to make really loooong boards - a regular board is just around 2' x 3' so this new baord is like 2' x 6'). Each side can have up to 4 players. One is the commander-in-chief who can pass cards to his 3 generals who each control one area (which is now double in size).

How this translates into a multi-player online game? I have no idea! I imagine it would be very hard! But let me look into it!
