Memoir 44 – The Perfect Game for the Holidays

Memoir 44 – The Perfect Game for the Holidays

In this post, I want to draw your attention to a painted Memoir 44 review that I just uploaded to YouTube.

When I get together with non-miniatures gamers, and sometimes non-gamers, this is the board game that I like to hit the table with. This game gives a historical miniatures game feel, without scaring away non-gamers. In fact, I would classify this game as a perfect gateway game to get your friends involved in miniatures.

Being that the Holidays (in a pre-COVID world) are when I get together with friends and family (who are not gamers), this is the perfect game for me to get out to get my miniature gaming fix while enjoying the Holidays.

For those wondering, this game is made by Days of Wonder and distributed by Asmodee.
