April 28, 2013: Over Twenty-Three Pounds Of Awesome!

We did the happy dance when a full set of Ogre arrived this week. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

The pictures above don't include the Read Me First sheet, or Pocket Ogre (which some Kickstarter supporters are receiving. Pocket Ogre will also be available separately).

The conference table is approx. 4 feet wide and 15 feet long. (Great for playing games!)

A Game System Of Truly Epic Proportions

For the retail box:

  • Box size: 24 by 20 by 5.8 inches
  • Box weight: 23.9 pounds
  • Maps laid out: 31 square feet
  • Maps laid out end-to-end: 13.8 feet long
  • Counter sheets laid out unpunched: 25.2 square feet
  • No. of 2-D counters: 1,051
  • No. of 3-D counters: 72
  • Total no. of counters: 1,123

We've mentioned that this should retail at around $400. We hope now you can see why. .  .

In case you're wondering about the sponsored sheets, these aren't in Kickstarter or retail copies of Ogre Designer's Edition. They're a separate purchase.
