The game of choice for the evening was Memoir ’44, enriched by the immersive Overlord Expansion. It was time to relive history and recreate the intense Battle of Saumur, which unfolded on June 19, 1940, during the dramatic events of World War II.

As the game progressed, the tension in the room grew palpable. Players strategized and executed their plans meticulously, each move carrying significance reminiscent of the actual battle that took place along the picturesque banks of the River Loire.
