|Multi-Man Publishing Honors the 30-year Anniversary of The Gamers - Monday, March 26, 2018|
Multi-Man Publishing is pleased to honor the 30-year anniversary of The Gamers with three new pre-order opportunities.
March 1988 was when Dean Essig's very first Gamers title (In their Quiet Fields) started to ship to customers, marking the beginning of The Gamers, Inc. So, we are currently marking 30 years of service of The Gamers to our wonderful hobby.
On this anniversary, MMP is announcing big news for Gamers fans. Three new games, from three different game series, are now available for pre-order. If you have been waiting for new games from Dean Essig and the game designers he has inspired, now is your chance to order them at the discounted pre-order price.
Brazen Chariots (Battalion Combat Series, BCS)
Brazen Chariots: Battles for Tobruk, 1941 is the third installment of the Battalion Combat Series and covers the Commonwealth efforts to break through to Tobruk, starting with Operations Brevity and Battleaxe; finally culminating with Operation Crusader in November 1941. Turns represent one day each at a map scale of one mile per hex. Included with the game are three maps, four countersheets, BCS series rules, Brazen Chariots specific rules, charts & tables, box, and dice. 12 scenarios, with the amazing attention to detail only Carl Fung can give, allow players to fully grapple with the vagaries of armored warfare in the open, flat, desert... tanks navigating as ships at sea, as it were.
Brazen Chariots retails for $96. Pre-Order Brazen Chariots for $72
Rostov '41 (Standard Combat Series, SCS)
Rostov '41: Race to the Don is a quick-playing Standard Combat Series game covering the risky German stab at Rostov in the fall of 1941. Turns represent 3-6 days each at a map scale of 2.5 miles per hex. The game includes one map, one countersheet, three scenarios, one campaign, SCS series rules, Rostov '41 specific rules, box, and dice.
Porting over the SCS sub-systems popularized in such games as Bastogne, Day of Days, and Panzer Battles, Rostov '41 provides a zippy one-map backdrop to this amazing series of operations.
Rostov '41 retails for $44. Pre-Order Rostov '41 for $33
Ariete (Tactical Combat Series, TCS)
Ariete: Bir el Gubi, November 1941 marks the first return to the Tactical Combat Series since Canadian Crucible. Ariete covers the British attack and Italian defense of Bir el Gubi, Libya, on 19 November 1941. Turns represent 30 minutes each at a map scale of 150 meters per hex. The game includes one map, one countersheet, 12 scenarios, TCS series rules and Ariete specific rules.
(*Note: In order to keep production costs down, we are producing Ariete as a ziplock game only; there will not be a boxed edition.)
Ariete retails for $36. Pre-Order Ariete for $27

|New Media Co-ordinator - Friday, January 26, 2018|
MMP is very happy to let our fans know that we have hired someone whose sole job is communications and spreading the word. Well, until we can talk him into doing some development work that is.
So please give it up for our new Media Coordinator, Peter Bartlett.
Like many of us, Peter began gaming in the early 1970s with Avalon Hill games. Expanding out to SPI and other companies, he tends to prefer playing games like SCS and IGS. He prefers games that are simpler and have a high fun factor. Hopefully we can trick him into playing ASL too some day.
Peter will be responsible for updating our news page, working with Bruce to preparing content, getting our company emails back on schedule, and trying to keep you guys up to date with our current status.
Clearly it is going to take a little time for him to get up to speed, however you can look to Peter to hopefully answer your company questions and/or find the right answers for you if he cannot.
Welcome aboard, Peter!
|Panzer Battles Now Available For Website Sales - Monday, October 17, 2016|
Panzer Battles (SCS) is now available for website sales at its regular price.
These are the actions we have all read about in von Mellinthin's classic "Panzer Battles".
In preparation for their own Operation Saturn, the Soviet 5th Tank Army attempted to seize the area west and south of the Chir River. In a series of running battles, one Soviet corps after another were rebuffed by a force made up almost entirely of 11th Panzer Division and hastily organized contingents of service troops.
This exciting SCS game features a continued adaptation of the system shown in Bastogne, It Never Snows, and Day of Days.
|Panzer Battles Now Shipping to Pre-Orders - Tuesday, September 27, 2016|
Panzer Battles (SCS) is now shipping to preorders. Watch here for further updates and an announcement when the game will be available for regular website sales.
|MMP Takes ASL Back To Stalingrad!! - Thursday, September 22, 2016|
ASL - RED FACTORIES
In 1990 Avalon Hill released the first Historical ASL (HASL) module, RED BARRICADES. Charlie Kibler's groundbreaking design covered the battle for Stalingrad around the "Krasny Barrikady" (or RED BARRICADES) ordnance factory on two historically accurate maps. RED BARRICADES offered a new ASL experience, introducing the concept of Campaign Games (CGs), multi-scenario battles spread over several days, alongside traditional scenarios depicting discrete historical actions. Charlie now brings us RED OCTOBER. This follow-on HASL adds two new maps, expanding the playing area covered in RED BARRICADES to include the "Krasny Oktyabr" (or RED OCTOBER) factory complex. RED OCTOBER features three CGs and seven scenarios.
RED FACTORIES combines RED OCTOBER with a new edition of RED BARRICADES. The source files for RED BARRICADES are no longer available, so Charlie will take this opportunity to paint all four maps in a consistent style to assure they match. This also allows us to update the original RED BARRICADES material, taking into account accumulated clarifications and errata. Over the years a great deal of follow-on material has been released for RED BARRICADES, including a fourth campaign game. We are consolidating this material to create an expanded version of RED BARRICADES as part of the new release.
ASL - RED OCTOBER
RED OCTOBER is a special release for those customers who already own RED BARRICADES and are not interested in the full RED FACTORIES edition. This is a special pre-order only and will only be available during the pre-order period. Printing of this item is solely dependent on RED FACTORIES achieving its pre-order goal.
|GCACW New Pre-Orders From MMP! - Thursday, September 22, 2016|
GCACW - ATLANTA IS OURS
Atlanta Is Ours is the next game in the award-winning Great Campaigns of the American Civil War (GCACW) series. The two maps included are painted by original map artist Charlie Kibler. The military unit counters have been redesigned by Charlie Kibler to harken back to the counters in the original games in the series but with a more modern graphical treatment.
Atlanta Is Ours contains an updated version of the GCACW Standard Basicstyle="color:blue;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:bold;" Game Rules that all the other games in the series use.

Based on previously published materials, each of the three campaigns included in Roads to Gettysburg II has been revised, repackaged, and rebalanced for improved play.
Roads to Gettysburg II: Lee Strikes North contains an updated version of the GCACW Standard Basic Game Rules that all the other games in the series use. The Advanced Game rules are also standardized so players will be able to move quickly from one campaign to the other.

|BCS Kasserine Available For Pre-Order! - Monday, August 22, 2016|
BCS Kasserine Available For Pre-Order!
Following in the footsteps of the highly regarded Last Blitzkrieg, the second title in the Battalion Combat Series (BCS), Baptism By Fire, chronicles the first real ground operations by the US Army in the ETO in WW2. Every wargamer knows this battle was a severe Allied setback. What is not obvious, however, is that Allied troops on the ground gave a good account of themselves against the remnants of Rommel's vaunted Afrika Korps, despite the ineffective and confused leadership that existed at Corps level.
Baptism By Fire will have a retail price of $76.00 but will pre-order for $57.00. Make sure you pre-order today!
|Last Call for Pre-Orders - Thursday, July 28, 2016|

Operational Matters: An OCS Guide contains the Guide and Sicily II, a 1-map redesign of the original OCS Sicily game. Editor Mark Milke has created a guide with a nice mixture of game-specific strategy articles on many of the games in this series, and also some generalized analysis of the system’s nuances. Novice players will especially enjoy the blow-by-blow examination of the Primosole Bridge scenario from the game that is included in the magazine, Sicily II.

SCS Panzer Battles: 11th Panzer on the Chir River
Panzer Battles is a Standard Combat Series game covering the classic mobile defensive battles of the 11th Panzer Division against the culminating point spearheads of the Soviet Operation Uranus. The Soviets have successfully entombed the Stalingrad Pocket and are in the process of locking down the pocket even harder.
Panzer Battles covers all this swirling mobile action in turns representing two days and a hex scale of 500m. Units are companies and battalions. Game components include 2 full map sheets, 1 countersheet and all the necessary rulebooks. Play is highly interactive (the only way to show its mobile nature) using a chit pull system by formation. The rules are a continued adaptation of the system shown in Bastogne, It Never Snows, and Day of Days.

|Winter Offensive Bonus Pack #7 Now Available - Thursday, January 28, 2016|
Winter Offensive Bonus Pack #7

ASL Winter Offensive 2016 Bonus Pack features three new scenario designs (two by Bill Sisler and one by Ken Dunn) and two new geomorphic mapboards (74 and 75), also designed by Bill.
MMP has an ulterior motive, however, for the manufacture and sale of this particular product. Proceeds from the sales of each WO Bonus Pack 2016 are donated to the WWII Foundation. You get a nice set of new maps, three more ASL scenarios, and help a great project dedicated to memorializing the efforts of the men who fought in WWII get a very nice donation. This really seems like a win/win in our opinion.
SHIPPING NOTE: This WO Bonus Pack will ship in a USPS flat-rate envelope if ordered separately (US addresses only).
ASL Winter Offensive 2016 Bonus Pack contains:
2 ASL/ASLSK geomorphic mapboards (74, 75)
3 new ASL scenarios (WO18-WO20)

|Warriors of God Reprint Now Available! - Tuesday, January 05, 2016|
Back by popular demand!
We found some room in recent print runs to reprint the components we needed to make Warriors of God available again. This is a straight reprint of the original game with one slight change. Rather than 2 copies of sheet 1 to give you enough troop counters, a new half-sheet of troop counters is now provided, avoiding the confusion of duplicated counters.
Warriors of God is highly sought after game of the 100 Years War period and the struggle between France and England.
Don't miss your chance! Stop by the website today and get yourself a copy of this classic game.
|Two Brand New OCS Pre-Orders Ready To Go! - Wednesday, December 30, 2015|
The upgrade/reprint of Tunisia II involved a handful of important decisions. A straight reprint was out of the question, since the original was designed back when the Operational Combat Series v2 rulebook was fairly new. In Tunisia II we standardize how the game should be played with the latest series rules, and also have updated it to "fit" better with newer OCS games. So units and rules have been updated to conform to games also set in 1942-43 time period. The research of Paul Dallas, supplemented by that of Dean Essig and Roland Leblanc (who did a comprehensive check using recent publications) also led to a revised counter mix that better reflects current OCS concepts.
Operational Matters with Sicily II
Operational Matters: An OCS Guide is a support booklet devoted to the Operational Combat Series. Editor Mark Milke has selected a nice mixture of game-specific strategy articles on many of the games in this series, and also some generalized analysis of the system’s nuances. Novice players will especially enjoy the blow-by-blow examination of the Primosole Bridge scenario from the game that is included in the magazine, Sicily II.
Sicily II is a full-sized game covering the amphibious invasion of that island in the summer of 1943. This new edition is quite different from Dean Essig's original game from back in 2000.
