Is anyone working on a full rules compilation for memoir and all its expansions? I would like to see one that incorporated the faq and included all the rules introduced in the whole system.

If no one at DOW is working on one how would I go about getting permission to make one? I understand I could make it for myself but I would like to have access to the great images and backgrounds from the rulebooks and faq and permission to actually upload it to bgg.


I would like to see the book organized by type of rules like the faq is. I would then incorporate the faq directly into the text of the rules wherever it was possible.

I am not an expert in document creation of this magnitude so Any insight anyone has would be helpful.

Nothing like carrying around a phone book.... The idea does have some merit but would unfortunately be a lot of work... a labor of love for an M'44 zealot.

Doesn't the Card Compendium (almost) fill the bill?

I've lobbied for many years for them to release a looseleaf binder of rules, and as expansions come out, they come with new pages that you add to and replace old as necessary. Kind of like the old Soviet encyclopedias.

Yes this would be nice. And I don't think it would be too long as the rules themselves are not that long and you could delete all the redundancies. For instance, only 1 description of mines (rather than 5) and then you could include which mines come with which expansion
(WW 00012; TP 0001122334; MT 00012234; PT 01124; EF 01224). Then when you wanted to look up a rule or (re)read the rules, you could do it in one place. I would think DoW wouldn't have any problem with this non-commercial use since it's already public and would promote the game. I would just email someone there, and by the time you cut and paste your way through the rules and FAQ, you likely would get an okay by them (or then send them your completed product for ok if they haven't gotten back to you yet).

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Between those two things:

http://www.orderofgamers.com/memoir-44-v3-4 (rules compilation)
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/123154/memoir-44-expan... (expansions and scenarios compilation)

...you are pretty covered.

Didn't DoW put out a hardcover in French of the rules, or was that just a strategy guide?

An strategy guide, that incidentally, it should come to the light in English soon.

You want a binder of rules, why not make your own, like this:
