So there is the rumblings of a new expansion out there.

There has been a number of clues of what it will cover posted in the forums on here and over at days of wonder forum, though it seems pretty clear it will be some sort of campaign and Russia seems to be involved (as seems to be suggested in one of the links below).

I thought it would be a little bit of fun to set up a poll to see how close or off the mark we are.

The options below are based off some early predictions from myself and others after reviewing the clues out there but there is an option if you have another prediction.

The 3 links below seem to provide the most important clues to this date:

I hope its the Winter War. I have little interest in combat involving the Japanese and Russians. Not sure why. I suppose I prefer European conflict over Asian.

To tell you the truth I think any of the Campaigns listed above would be pretty interesting in their own right.

I would love to see a winter war one linked with BT, OL and standard,

Though a Russia vs Japan campaign would be very interesting indeed, I can't think of any official scenarios out there atm that do this

I wonder why the designer/company chose to do 'unlikely' opponents or dare I say 'what if' when major players haven't even been produced in the historical realm. We still need:

Italian Army pack
French Army pack

To me it seems like you would visit all the major battle grounds (Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North Africa, Island Hopping in the Pacific, Resistance fighters etc) before venturing into 'what if'; but heck what do I know...

Yeah, as for Mediterranean Theater, Memoir has done North Africa and that's all. I'd like to see the full Monty.

I really hope this isnt the case, hypothetical battles / opponents.

The historical element seems to have been the strong point in memoir that kept having players coming back.

I'll bet it will be the first of a new battle map series. Like the overlord style battle maps of the first series. I based on the clues given, maybe Kohlkin Gol on one side and a Finnish war scenario on the other. I would buy that!

Agree on including the entire campaign in North Africa.

(Sorry....about halfway through Rick Atkinson's "An Army at Dawn" - Pt 1 of the Liberation trilogy)

There is already a really good North African (NA) campaign of 10 scenarios by jdrommel, plus the Mediterranean expansion, and other NA scenarios. Not sure what another NA expansion would accomplish.

An expansion focusing on other aspects of the Mediterranean front might be useful though.

Operation Torch, El Alamein, could even have the air assault on Crete, and lots of battles in North Africa. Tanks ruled the desert, as with the steppes of the Ukraine.

We need an Italian army!

I'd like to see the Blitzkrieg cards available separately so that I can obtain enough to play the full blown Operation Neptune.

The Invasion of Create Campaign by R. Borg was available as a booklet in 2011, may still be available as download. https://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/mini-campaigns/cret...

jdrommel did El Alamein overthrough.

Operation Compass campaign (10 scenarios) was created by jdrommel

Yes that is correct (Crete Campaign) guess I should've looked in my game room blush been awhile since I've played.

Overlord scenario of Crete nad El Alamein and some of the other North Africa battles please

Thanks for the book tip! Sounds like a great read. Already way behind on my Kindle, oh well.

Methinks the M44 expansion will be great. Pre-printed maps are too cool! My bet is that we are looking at Russkies vs Japanese, and Russkies vs. Finns. I'm in no matter what.

I'm with you, on that. I would love to see a new Italian army pack together with a third Campaign Book focussed on all of the campaigns in North Africa and the Medi.
