I am stil confused about memoir 44. If you buy it, it says it's only a two player game. However I have seen 3 or 4 people playing. Do you have to buy an expansion in order to add more players or does the original memoir 44 sans expansions allow you to play with 3 or 4 people?

@ Copies allows you to play with up to 8. YOu can use those rules to accomodate less players and even attempt it on a standard board. It probably won't be as fun.

With 1 player on a side, that player controls all 3 sections
With 2 players on a side, One controls the center and all "non-section" cards while the other controls the left and right sections.
With 3 players on a side, each controls a section.
With 4, one is the CinC and each of the others control a section as Field Generals.

iirc, you could buy overlord and either paper map (hedgerow hell) OR winter/desert board for a ghetto cheap way to do more than 2.

Ideas...
Days of Wonder Multiplayer kit has a copy of Hedgerow Hell and the overlord deck (great to have) , I think 20 dollars

Buy desert winter board and overlord kit (20 plus 20 ) The overlord cards are great!

buy desert winter board and use poker chits to represent extra units (Have all 4 units with one primary unit and 3 poker chips, hits remove poker chip, final unit is VP)


Buy Battle Lore, Battlecry or Command and colors ancients, and have 2 games (same board) and use each others boards for epic/overlord matches.

You could print you own chits if you don't have poker chits!!!
