Days of Wonder announced the release of Through Jungle and Desert, the second installment in our second series of Memoir ’44 Battle Maps. It features two new decks of Combat cards, along with six pre-printed standard scenarios and two pre-printed Overlord scenarios.
Lead your men through the merciless jungles of Burma, trying to escape the Japanese grasp or rush to Rangoon before the British forces evacuate the city on the jungle scenario. Then,
change the terrain and fight the very first tank battle between US and German forces in the sands of North Africa, where Stuart and Panzer clash in the middle of the desert.
This second installment comes with six standard pre-printed scenarios with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions, but also the historical background and special rules. To help spice up your
scenarios, the expansion comes with both a brand new Jungle Combat Cards deck and a Desert Combat Cards deck. Two ready-to-play Overlord scenarios are also provided: fight for
Henderson Field in Guadalcanal or conduct a a huge desert battle that marks the beginning of the second battle of El Alamein in Operation Lightfoot. The Jungle’s scenarios can be played
separately or as a campaign, with each scenario outcome impacting the following one.
Through Jungle and Desert is designed for 2 to 8 players. It includes six standard scenarios and two Overlord scenarios, as well as two decks of Combat Cards and one double sided-printing
punch board of tokens. This expansion requires at least one copy of Memoir ‘44 as well as the Pacific Theater and Mediterranean Theater expansions to play. The Terrain Pack and
Equipment Pack expansions are also recommended. Through Jungle and Desert is currently expected to be available in April in both North America and Europe.
