Something strange happened.

Ive been trying to get my gf to play games with me. Only thing Ive ever succeded in was ticket to ride. Ive tried high and low but not really interested. Tried mostly as a long shot to introduce Memoir. I didnt really realisticly think she would enjoy it. I was right she hated the first play we had (she had horrible rolls).

I sneaked in a little note on the fact that there where scenarios involving french resistance. Muttering she said that next time we would play that if she could be the resistance. Thing is she historicaly likes resitstance movements.

So we played one of the resistance scenarios and she loved it. To my huge supprice a few days later she asked if we could play the game again with some of the other resistance scenarios.

The base game has two scenarios involving french resistance.

Are there more "resistance" scenarios published in other expansions and or on the web?

I tried to search the daysofwonder site but found the search field quite bad.

It doesnt have to be french resistance it can be norwegian or any other as well.

Thanks in advance.
Tomas

The DOW web store appears to still be giving away copies of the Vercors Campaign to anyone who purchases the Sword of Stalingrad battle map. All of these scenarios feature the French Resistance. Note that if you want to play the scenarios as a campaign, you will need the campaign rules.

You're right, it is for any Memoir product! I overlooked that tidbit when I placed my order because I already have almost everything else.

Happy gaming!

Vercors Campaign is great. Get it while you can. It requires the Terrain pack and have been very good the two times I have played it.

Found some resistance scenarios by jdrommel.(same man that made the Vercors Campaign)
Haven't checked which expansions you need for all of them, but looks like you need the terrain pack.

Scenarios for normal sized maps.

She might also enjoy playing as the Finnish ski troops.They have some similarities with the French Resistance.

This is the official scenario from Eastern Front expansion.

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=1409

Scenarios from the front

Suomisalmo by jdrommel
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4575
Mannerheim Line by jdrommel
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4574

Various scenarios with skitroop rules or resistance rules

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4704 (resistance rules for some units)
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=2709
(Another Soumosalmi scenario)

Some more with finnish ski troops
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4215
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4201
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=3614
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/editor/view/?id=4244


That should give you some more scenarios that she might enjoy, but you need Eastern Front and for VISUAL effect teh Winter/desert board.

Any chance for a Finish campaign can be made out of these battles?

If you can read French there is this campaign about the Finnish by Carlit.
As far as I know it hasn't been translated into english yet.

I think some Finish Winter war and continuation war could work as well.

Thanks for all the great links guys.

Id really love to play the finish campaing that is posted by Stig Morten. But you know how it is with the language.

The PDF is an absolute beauty and if someone could make it into an equaly beautiful english thing Id run off and by the eastern front right away. One reason its low on my prio agenda is that I dont care that much for Germany vs Russia battles. But finland vs russia I do like.

We don't stop playing when we get old, but we get old when we stop playing.

You can always design your own "resistance" scenarios just for your lover, using Memoir'44 official editor... and then say: "C'mon honey, let's test your resistance force tonight..."modest

Not just Sword of Stalingrad, I think it's for any M44 purchase as I recently ordered a set of Command cards and had Vercors added to my order.

EDIT - should have read a bit further. blush
