I have a problem... i buy games just for the sake of owning them... nearly half the games in my collection are unplayed due to various reasons but this is another story. whistle

I tried to avoid Memoir '44 as long as i could knowing that if i buy the game i will soon have to buy all its expansions which is very costly and since the day of registering here which was sometime back in 2009 i managed to withstand the urge to buy this gem.

So, last Tuesday was the day... in full awareness of what will come in the next days/weeks/month i pulled the trigger and ordered the base game at my beloved online retailer... boy, what a mistake... devil

One day later it got delivered and since then i have played over 10 games...

So, after unpacking the game and checking if everything was there i already felt this little itch... i could hear a little man in my ear that told me to "buy more... buy them all..." and i chuckled since this was exactly what i was expecting... i would buy more of them expansions... i would buy them all...

So, where to start ? I browsed through the various thread and it quickly became apparent that the first expansion would be the East Front... down into the shopping cart with it...

East Front... Snow... but wait... where is the gameboard with snow on it ? The base game only has normal terrain and a beach terrain on it... what ? An additional map for desert and snow scenarios ? Great ! Take this, you bloody shopping cart...

The scenarios themselves are great and give you hours and hours of playing time out of them... but there must be something that adds to the experience... browsing through the available expansions i noticed the Campaign Book... whis is kind of a career mode for Memoir... three big campaigns and the ending of each scenario lead to various other scenarios... that must be great to play... Oops... already in the shopping cart ?! To hell... devil

But what is this... to get the full experience out of the Campaign Book you need the Terrain Pack and the Air Pack as well... oh my... where is this supposed to end ?! It doesn't matter... i need to have them all.. there goes the Terrain Pack right into the shopping cart...

This will (for now) round out my spending spree but actually it is hard to get one with a reasonable price... i will eventually pull the trigger and buy it but that can take some time...
