August 15, 2012: Ogre Pocket Edition Sent To Printers
Ogre Pocket Edition is now at print! Not to be confused with the Ogre Designer's Edition -- which is close to leaving our office and heading to the factory for manufacturing -- Ogre Pocket Edition is a re-creation of the first edition of Ogre. Designed using the original cover, map, and counters that literally fit in your pocket, it's priced at its 1977 MSRP of $2.95! (Which, in 1977 dollars, translates to be over $10 today when adjusted for inflation; this is Steve's way of saying "thank you" for your support for Ogre over the last three decades.)
Despite its "pocket" size, the game will have 140 counters -- enough to play all five of the "Ogre vs. Command Post" scenarios. It includes two different conventional forces (a Black force and a White force), with a whopping eight White Howitzers! "Small but mighty" seems an appropriate descriptor; another is "bang for the buck!" That's a whole lot of gameplay for $2.95 -- you won't find a better gaming deal in town.
We're really excited about Ogre Pocket Edition because it means that a whole new generation of gamers can discover Ogre for themselves. Ogre Kickstarter supporters who pledged $150 or more will receive a free copy of the pocket edition when their Kickstarter rewards arrive (hopefully!) late this year. Next summer we'll offer Ogre Pocket Edition to everyone through our usual retail channels.
