Free PDF of classic counters. Yes, this is still happening.
Less than $1,000 to go...
I've been following this project since day one, and I've finally put in my pledge now that my paycheck tomorrow has been all figured out. Of course after doing that I realized I could have joined the 'comment' party by pledging a smaller amount earlier, but at least I'm in now! I'm going for $293 including...
-$150 game + swag level
-variant dice set
-2 shot glasses
-a copy of each of the 2nd and 3rd Kickstarter exclusive counter sheets
-Blueprint, Endgame, and green/orange Ogre T-shirts
-and a Car Wars shirt
I hope I didn't forget anything! :]
Less than 2k to goooooooooo.
The extra counter set ships free in the US.... right?
And I'm in with 15 hours to go.
So, does it break $850K with the last 15 hours of pledges?
@Joel: I have a mental image of an OGRE crushing teh Energizer Bunny....
We're approaching that 5k backers number too, I notice.
@Frank: A few of us have mentioned this in the Update #33 comments, and Steve says that the requested fixes have been forwarded to the webmaster.
Keeps going, and going, and going........
@Todd: I hear ya. Autocorrect has really slowed me down, since I have to keep going back and fixing what my iPad thinks I'm trying to say.
@Todd David Peters I believe FFAQA = From the FAQ Answer
@SJG - I thought that at the 150, 245, 335 level one ◦"Ogre Supporter 2012" T-Shirt – $20. [c] was included - so should there not be a "[b]" on this as well?
Confused as am ordering $335 + 2x 20 (shirts) for total 3 games & 3 shirts - is this no longer true?
almost 800k, thats insane!
Either that or he'll have to sign them all at once, and get Carpal Tunnel...
Make that FFAQA. Darn IPad.
Just wondered if Steve has started signing the certificates yet. Doing some each day until they're needed is going to be much easier!
I don't know what "FFAQ" means.
Well, when the OGRE computer game comes out, there will always be a game within reach, players or no.
@MJC Faulkner: when Ogre first came out, I had to play solo. Fortunately, that won't be a problem now!
@Logan: I guess. My wife is going to play OGRE with me, so I always have at least one player.
specifically, in the Update #22 comments SJ wrote:
Because this is a FFAQA: Everything will be available from W23 until we run out, and in the face of huge demand we can reprint some things (shirts yes, whole games HECK NO). However, only those on our supporter list will be able to order the KS exclusive items, viz.: the shirt and the three special counter sheets.
My next stretch goal is about three enchiladas at Abeuelo's, if anyone is keeping track. Should be back online inside 90 minutes.
Webmaster has been advised of requested tweaks to the info sheet.
Next time we need an official calculator, debugged in advance, with hooks to allow new things to be added. Or Kickstarter needs a shopping cart.
@Astral - SJ has said no more announced stretch goals, but they are working on some further additions/refinements as the total continues to rise
@M.J.C Faulkner....I dunno....Seems cool to me. Sometimes it can be tough to round up someone to play against...
@Todd: Right! So a THIRD copy, and second counter sets...redundant backups! (You did ask...)
Looks like update #33 has done the equivalent of a pit-stop for the Ogre - a whole new set of treads. Wonder if SJG have any plans for $800K (now seems certain) and $850K (possible)?
@Wolf90: A SOLO boardgame? Um, meh?
@M.J.C.: this is the exact reasoning behind my pledge. One game to play, one game to keep as a spare and one set of counters for replacements and/or huge games. This should do me forever (I hope).
If you haven't already, check out this kickstarter. It looks cool too (and costs MUCH less!)
@ Todd: Another copy of the game, just in case something should happen to the first one. And a spare set of the counters ($40), after you wear down the original set with constant playing...
When the classic black & white counters were announced as the $500K stretch goal on May 3rd it also said that a high resolution PDF of the same would be made available at some point. I have not seen any mention of the PDF file since. It is not in the extras text of the Kickstarter project home page, not in the Goal Achieved! text for $500K, nor is it in the PDF list in the unofficial Ogre Pledge Configurator!.
Is the PDF of the black & white counters still in play?
Ok, I am in for $241.00: two games plus one set of blue/red dice and a full set of counters. What else could I possibly need?
I...it's just....umm.....well, I guess....that is to say....
added two shot glasses, extra dice, two polo shirts. NO MAS! :)
going for the kovalic shirt now patches and polo later
Okay, I'm in!
$73K in pledges today, and there's still 2+ hours left! Incroyable!
@Nicholas Vasek: The mercenary units are going to be green on black to my understanding. They will match the green ogres on the Targets Go Boom counter sheet.
Anyone wanting Ogre Immortality we have just 4 trucks/hovertrucks available for a $64 sponsorship. Please email us at email@example.com if you are interested.
Oh, plus the $64 I already spent to name a unit on the Merc counter sheet. Definitely gonna be putting my jury duty pay towards this project, not that it's much ($27 for 3 days)...
"Image here" for the patches doesn't go anywhere. I found 'em through another link, but someone less obsessive might not....
Ogre Pledge Configurator! (version 11)
Unless I go for more than 1 polo shirt, it looks like I might be in for a total of $350. Plus a copy from my FLGS (gonna be a KS edition too - WOO!). Now I just hope I have time to play - we're expecting baby #2 mid-November, and as much as I love Ogre it's definitely NOT going to be my priority when the time comes...
8.5k to go...
Upped my pledge to $227 for $150 game w/ swag, both dice sets, classic counters, and extra counter set. Hopefully the polo shirts will be available on W23 later.
actually kicktraq says we are on track for 811 k
OK changed my pledge to the $150 level so that I get the swag and the canvas bag. I guess I will order my polo from W23 later.
@Pete Hooper: At 1.5M Steve visits the future and brings us back a Mk V!
I still have a hard time keeping the colors/factions straight. I always played in B&W ;-)
...you guys realize we're less than 12k away from 800k, with 16 hours left?
