December 16, 2017: A New Ogrezine Article & More
I am pleased to announce that we have a new Ogrezine article up. Long time fan Herb Diehr has graced us with his submission, "The Final Battle", a climatic piece of fiction. Our own Brandon Moore has sketched some illustrations for Herb's piece that really accent the feel of the story. Check it out! We will have our next Ogrezine post on December 29th.
In other Ogre news, Warehouse 23 has a Santa Clausthulhu Holiday Sale going on right now. There are a lot of items marked down, plus three great sets of games at a fantastic price - the Mars Attacks, Classic Car Wars and Munchkin 2017 Holiday Bundles are all worth checking out. But of particular note to Ogre fans are the individual Ogre metal miniatures that are all at 75% off! Although selection is limited, there are still a number of great units at mind-blowing prices. If that wasn't enough, there is a cascade of free gifts with purchase while supplies last. The $90 or more level is a free Ogre Sherpa! Remember that you get all the gifts of the lower levels too. And shipping is free at $100 anyway, so this is a win-win! This sale ends December 20th.
Speaking of holiday shopping, the digital version of Ogre on Steam makes an excellent stocking stuffer! Plus, Ogre is now available for both PC and Mac systems. It is not too late to drop hints or hook up your best gaming buddy. It always fits!

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).
