[13.2] (OMISSION) If any hex of Henderson Field is occupied by a Japanese unit, the U.S. Player immediately loses his Ground Support Points. The Points are returned to the U.S. Player on the Game-Turn following that in which all the hexes of Henderson Field are reoccupied by U.S. units.

[14.0] (CORRECTION) The Japanese Player wins by occupying any two (or more) hexes of Henderson Field with any of his units at the end of any two consecutive Japanese Combat Phases.

[15.2] (CLARIFICATION) There are two Japanese units (11230, 21230) listed in the Scenario II Initial Deployment which are not listed on the Turn Record/Reinforcement Track, nor are they included in the counter mix. They should be included in the game, but not in the Initial Deployment for the Scenario. Instead, they appear as reinforcements on Game-Turn 21. Use any eliminated Japanese (2-2-10) infantry units or Ěsimply make them up from the blank counters.

[12.2] (CORRECTION) Reinforcements listed as arriving at "0001" may enter the map in any hex whose last two digits are "01" (the Western mapedge anywhere from hex 1001 northwards to hex 2901, inclusive). Note that the U.S. reinforcements scheduled to arrive on Nov. 3 (3-2-5 only), Nov. 18 and Nov. 27 are incorrectly listed as appearing at "0100". They should appear at "0001," (as should the Japanese units on Game-Turn 20).

[18.1] (CHANGE) GAME-TURN TWO: Units scheduled to enter on (S) Beach hexes should instead enter on (E) Beach hexes.

Turn Record/Reinforcement Track (CORRECTION) Oct. 22: U.S., 5-5-5s entering on (E) Beach hexes are infantry units; Oct. 30: U.S. 5-5-5 is an infantry unit; Nov. 3: Japanese 4-6-5 should be "x 3".

Counter Mix (DELETION) The U.S. 304 Artillery Battalion (2-3-5/1-4) does not appear in the game.

Map (OMISSION) The town of Limon is in hex 2503.


[12.2] (CLARIFICATION) U.S. units entering the game by invasion are simply placed in any vacant clear terrain coastal hex. Such units do not count towards the six unit U.S. limit outlined in (14.14).

[18.12] (CLARIFICATION) The town of Yon abaru referred to in this deployment is composed of hexes 1912, 2012, and 2013. It should not be confused with another town also named Yonabaru, in hex 2310. The '1-2-5/1-6' unit deploying anywhere south of the Primary Line should be a 1-2-15/1-6.

[18.22] (CORRECTION) The 2 (1-1-0) units should be 2 0-1-10) units.

[18.32] (CORRECTION) The 4 (2-4-10) units should be 3 (2-4-10) units.

[14.12] (CLARIFICATION) Note that all U.S. units must attack on Game-Turn One, because they begin their Combat Phase in Enemy Zones of Control.
