How do I preorder?

Simply place an order for a preorder product. IMPORTANT: If you mix preorder product and in-stock product your order will be split into one or more separate orders; one order for all in-stock product, and one order for each preorder product. This also means that the total at checkout will appear higher than what you are actually charged, since we do not charge for preorders until the product is ready to ship. You will be charged shipping for each order, because they are separate shipments.

To review your orders and preorders, please visit the "Cart & Account" link above, and click on the "Order History" link within. You may also update your credit card information for your preorders here.

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at problems@multimanpublishing.com.

Shipping Charges

IMPORTANT: Due to ever-changing rates charged by USPS/UPS there may be changes made to postage rates while your preorder is waiting to "hit". MMP charges the actual rates from United Parcel Service and the United States Postal Service. You should consider the shipping and handling charge quoted when you placed your preorder as an estimate, as actual rates will be charged with the game is ready to ship and your credit card is billed.

At any time, if the shipping price quotes is more, or less, than $3 from the actual "stamp" price (once we pack the box and get ready to get it out the door) we will credit, or bill, that amount to your card.

For example, imagine you order a game and the shipping is listed at $4 and the actual shipping cost is $6.95. MMP will "eat" that $2.95 underpayment. If the actual shipping cost was $7.05, we would further charge your card $3.05."

Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge
Product Image
$44.00
Qty:   Add to cart  

Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge covers the area of Edson's Ridge and the surrounding jungle just south of Henderson Airfield on the island of Guadalcanal during September 1942. The Japanese, as part of a complicated multi-pronged attack, sent three battalions, nearly 3000 men, charging towards the ridge protecting the airfield. Almost 800 Paramarines and Raiders defended the ridge with amazing courage and, despite suffering horrible casualties, kept from being overrun and saved both the airfield and possibly the Marine presence on Guadalcanal. The Japanese are often cited as having lost nearly 80% of their men attacking the ridge.

Banzai charges, important leaders, gas attacks, even hastily assembled riggers, are represented in Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge.

Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge is five turns long, each turn is a variable length of alternating impulses. The game length between experienced gamers is 2.5 to 3 hours.

Simon Spinetti says...

I was keen to get this game given the importance of the battle in the defense of the island and my past experience with this style of game, the first one by AH - Storm over Arnhem. Must say I was disappointed when I opened the box and found that I didn't get much "bang for my buck". Rules are poorly written and not that appealing to look at. Also some sections have contradictions, eg 13.6 CC Resolution mentions twice the need to make a "DR" (dice roll) but then it also mentions making a "die roll". Took my mate and I a fair bit of time to work out how to actually resolve our first CC phase. The game definitely needs some player aid cards to help players keep track of unit capabilities and the multitude of DRMs that are possible for the various actions. Also think that the CC rules need further work. A unit that is weak and/or exhausted has absolutely no modifiers to its CC roll,eg a D2 1 CCV unit kills with the same DR as a Fresh 7 CCV unit. Yes it is easier to kill in the return atta
