now, I've read a bunch of reviews and such, but I still can't seem to tell if I need to buy another copy just to accommodate the increase in board size. Does that pre-printed map actually come in the Operation: Overlord box? I figured someone would have mentioned that, but I still can't tell.

The purpose of the expansion is to allow you to play Memoir '44 with only one copy of the base game. Unfortunately, Operation Overlord does not come with one of the Battle Maps series, which doesn't make a lot of sense. In order to use it, you need either Memoir '44: Hedgerow Hell or Memoir '44: Tigers in the Snow.

I can say that if you're getting into the Overlord scenarios, whether you buy two copies of the base game or one of the Battle Maps, that Operation Overlord is a great expansion which makes playing those massive scenarios a snap. The cards are fantastic, and I personally don't mind the cardboard tokens at all.

No the board does not come with it. I think it should have, or at least an option to buy the basic board seperately

Here are some solutions
1) Buy a second copy of the game $40 $50
2) Buy the desert board and just pretend its green $10
3) Get the preprinted battle maps and use one unit and 3 poker chips for representing hits (1 inf + 3 chips)
www.unclegames.com mini poker chips..$5?
Battlemap- depends on which one

wow, that actually sucks pretty bad that it doesn't even come with a preprinted map so you can even use the new cards you are buying...

What about using a Battlelore map for a second board?
