Memoir 44 - Tactics and Strategy Guide, English version: tribute and useful links

I owe a lot to the French writer Franck Garot, who tought me so many best pratices (and reviewed so many of Praxeo books!). He told me recently:

- Being published is already an achievement.
- Being translated is one step beyond.

See Vers Minuit, Franck Garot's blog


As Franck declared, this release in October 2014, led by Days Of Wonder, is definitely a step beyond for Praxeo - we've been publishing game books since 1997 - and for me of course, as the author. All my feelings go to my friends and partners, and I want to pay here a tribute to the people who helped me achieving this.

  • Franck Garot: writer
  • François Spire: who tought me typography, graphics, printing and the magic "third level of reading" in 1997 when writing my first book.
  • Dai Junfu: go champion 8-dan, for his vision of mid-game strategy who inspired the M44 Strategy Guide. See his book: Chûban
  • Marc-Antoine Nguyen: Xiang Qi (Chinese Chess) master, for his vison of mid-game strategy who inspired the M44 Strategy Guide. See his book: Xiang Qi
  • Arnaud "Lafayette" Roy: former president of  the FFM44, who welcomed me so well in the M44 community in 2009. See the very first post on DOW M44 forum.
  • Days Of Wonder: for believing in this "rare" project (a big book about a "simple" boardgame!). They published the French release in 2011, and the English release in 2014.
  • Jesse "Ramussen81" Rassmussen, Beth and Geneva: for their contribution of one year in the English project.
  • All the fantastic M44 scenario designers. Their creations inspired me and are highlighted in this book, as they know. Among them: Richard Borg, jdrommel, yangtze, rasmussen, brycie35, 50th, Brummbar44, Hawkmoon Von Köln, Nemesszili, Elessär, etc.
  • All M44 players & friends, live games and online. See M44 French Open Tournament coverages 2009, 2011 (available in English), 2012 (available in English).
  • Alexandre Figuière: if you don't know him yet, I let you know we're working together on four new projects for Memoir 44...
  • All the Readers, for your attention and your feedbacks, whether they be "positive" or "constructive" :). Thanks for all the messages I already received from the US, Canada, UK, Ukraine, Denmark, Spain, Netherlands...

Thank you so much!
