Originally meant to be included in the Operation Watchtower (Historical Study #1), Hell’s Corner was left out to keep the price down. A couple of the scenarios were included in Operation Watchtower, playable on standard geo board layouts with use of overlays. Now using the original historical map, it was later included in Special Operations magazine, and then in the 2021 reprint of Rising Sun. Now MMP has begun to offer it as a standalone for $20 for those who don’t feel the need to upgrade to the most recent version of Rising Sun.

As the title implies, these five (5) historical scenarios focus on the actions of the U.S. Marines against the Imperial Japanese Army around the Matanikau River on Guadalcanal in the fall of 1942.

Hell’s Corner: Battles Along the Matanikau River is not a complete game; ownership of the Advanced Squad Leader game system and Rising Sun are required to play the scenarios herein.

Hell’s Corner: Battles Along the Matanikau River contains:

  • five (5) scenarios
  • one 35″ x 24″ map
