Imagine this scenario: you've finally decided on your first Memoir '44 expansion, the Mediterranean Theater. The back of the box tells you you'll could also get the Winter/Desert board—but did you know the MT summary cards are only available with Sword of Stalingrad?

Or this: you know the Campaign Book Volume 2 has a Normandy campaign you want to play. Sounds good, right? But it's the Breakthrough format, so you'll need the Breakthrough expansion—and for Breakthrough it's recommended to use the Breakthrough deck, which only comes with Winter Wars.

Suddenly a simple desire to play Memoir '44 means an armful of games and no time to play them because you're now working three jobs to keep up with Days of Wonder. Where did it all go wrong?

If only you could know, before opening your wallet, what Memoir '44 expansions require which other Memoir '44 expansions.

How to use this Geeklist:

Each entry is for one of M44's expansions, and the comments describe what other expansions are required to use it fully. Look for the expansions you have or want, and there you go: each entry may have Recommended requirements (like the Breakthrough deck in Winter Wars), and Scenarios requirements (listing what other expansions are required to play what number of those expansion's scenarios).

Some expansions are out-of-print, and noted as such (zombie).

Any mention of an Overlord requirement means you'll either need the Operation Overlord expansion, or a second copy of the base game.

Finally, for a complete breakdown of what other expansions are required by an expansion, scenario by scenario, I highly recommend Sayburr's staggeringly exhaustive Geeklist: Memoir '44 expansions and scenarios.

Breakthrough deck, (x2) Double-Map (OverThrough) scenarios, (x3) Triple-Map scenarios, (x6) Operation Neptune scenario

Scenarios

Some scenarios require two copies of the base game, to accommodate reinforcements, but the troop tokens from Operation Overlord should work just as well.

This info comes from this thread: What you'll need to play this expansion: An early look

All 6 Extended Breakthrough scenarios, all 5 Double-Map (OverThrough) scenarios, (x2) all 2 Triple-Map scenarios, (x5) Operation Neptune scenario

All 6 Extended Breakthrough scenarios, all 5 Double-Map (OverThrough) scenarios, all 2 Triple-Map scenarios, (x3) Operation Neptune scenario

4 of 6 Extended Breakthrough scenarios, all 5 Double-Map (OverThrough) scenarios, (x4) all 2 Triple-Map scenarios, (x8) Operation Neptune scenario
