June 19, 2017: Organized Play This Weekend: June 23-25
For those that missed out on the last Ogre Organized Play date, we have another for you! (We do things like that...) More than four score of stores are participating in this weekend's event across 36 states (and one province!). Here's an opportunity to defend the CP against the fearsome Ogre. Or perhaps you want to play the Ogre, crushing those puny, pesky tin cans beneath your treads? You can do both! Take the time to meet other fans, play the game, and perhaps score a little swag. Don't know how to play? No worries! There should be plenty to teach you and the game is easy to pick up. Veterans - bring a recruit with you and expand our ranks of players! You can find a list of all stores (with links!) participating in the event in this Daily Illuminator post. See if there is a store near you! Note: Please contact the store to find out the specific time and date that they are having their event.

Ogre and its sequel, G.E.V., are tactical ground combat games set in the late 21st century. In 2085 A.D., armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks and infantry slug it out with tactical nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's the giant cybernetic tank called the Ogre.
Ogre was Steve Jackson's first design. It was originally released in 1977, as the first Metagaming Microgame. Since then, it has appeared in Pocket Box and "Deluxe" large-board editions, as well as a miniatures version and a computer game from Origin Systems (now long out of print).
