A friend of mine is buying me a board-game as a thank you for a large Favor. I'm deciding between Memoir '44 and Axis & Allies: D-Day. The problem I am having is that I am stuck between making a decision based on the fact that I play with a group of guys that are some times scared off by games that are too complex but I can't stand to play play a game that has no strategy. We played RISK constantly for a couple years and have become a bit burned out on it. Most of them have enjoyed playing Settlers of Catan. All but one like One False Step for Mankind. The same of RISK: Godstorm (only a different guy didn't like that). Any Suggestions would be welcome. If you can think of an Alternate Game Please add it to the list and tell me why?

PS - I play with a group that numbers 4-5

I like the idea that this game can vary a bit each time you play. Doesn't the board have two sides?

Classic gaming gets a fresh twist. I love the play style of Axis & Allies.

If you are transitioning from Risk to more complex war games, but everyone is used to something a bit lighter, perhaps this will be a good choice. Especially with 5 players.
