Kotaku Article: The Magic Touch

Kotaku Article: The Magic Touch

Quinns’ latest Kotaku column is up! Our boy’s talking about the joy of games-as-physical-objects, with nods to Netrunner, Tzolk’in, Memoir ’44, String Railway and SO much more. Look at him go!

“Last weekend we played the epic WW2 swear-a-thon that is Memoir ’44: Overlord, but my friend also brought two backpacks of his girlfriend’s military equipment. We played wearing wobbly helmets and camo trousers of impossible size. Why? Because it was funny, mostly, but also because when you augment a game’s components to such a ridiculous extent, you can’t help but share something, and remember that game for the rest of your lives.”

Has anyone else noticed that there’s a power to this hobby? Quinns has, and he won’t rest until he knows what he’s talking about. Go read, people!

Memoir ’44

Memoir '44

Memoir ’44 is a unique historical game where players command a horde of little plastic Army men facing-off in dozens of WWII battles on an oversize hex game board.

Each battle scenario mimics the historical terrain, troop placements and objectives of each army. Deploying forces through a variety of Command cards, the smart commander uses the unique skills of his units – infantry, paratroopers, tanks, artillery, commandos and resistance fighters – to its greatest strength.

Easy to learn and fast-paced, Memoir ’44 requires strategic card play, timely dice rolling and an aggressive, yet flexible battle plan to achieve victory!

@Fastaval @lumpleygames @lackingceremony @Burning_Luke @QueenOvPirates @JacksonTegu @LizzieStark @JasonDCMatthews Fastaval might be the most magical game convention we've ever been to. It's certainly the one that felt the most like attending a wedding- just a warm, loving, *slightly* crazy celebration that we'll remember forever.
