Update #23

Outrunning the Track

See Update #22, posted just a few minutes before this one, for a link to the rules PDF. Bug-catches in the rules should go in the comments to that update, please.

Because the rate of support has continued to increase, we’ve outrun where we expected to be. The image we needed to announce the originally planned $600,000 stretch goal won’t be finished until Monday. We didn’t expect to NEED it until Monday! So we will push that goal back enough to make it a meaningful stretch, and if (as I now anticipate) we approach $600,000 tomorrow, I will post a non-angst-generating commitment for further Ogre-specific support.

 (I say “originally planned.” We are so far ahead of our expectations that “originally planned” means “Thursday’s modification of Tuesday evening’s revision of last week’s revised plan.” I’m just saying.)

Battlesuit

 Yes, we’ve talked about it . . . I expect we will continue to talk about it. That's all I have for you right now.

Survey for Exclusive Sheet #2

 Here’s a screen grab of the raw results of the $350K survey. You already know that we’re going to do classic counters as a separate extra. I should now reveal that one of our counter sheet sponsors (for a sheet in the box) currently wants flat Ogres, though we are still discussing their size. So it seems likely that the flat Ogre fans will get their wish.

That covers most of the minority desires. The “more trucks” and “more in standard colors” options are clearly not badly needed. So it will be EITHER 3-D buildings and Ogres, or another exclusive map overlay sheet. Or, perhaps, a sheet of mostly buildings and Ogres with a few slightly-thick overlays on it.

I am not going to make the final decision until all our sponsors decide what they want. Then I will choose something that complements their choices without duplicating them.

      as much as I'm looking forward to the miniatures line restarting with new castings, I really like the simplicity of the slot assembled ogres and buildings. has anyone considered trying to do the standard units that way too? looking at say, the laser turrets or the combine command posts, I don't think it's impossibly small to consider. they'd obviously be small and simple with only a few panels.

      while I'm posting, has anyone considered adding printed copies of the ogre book and the scenario book? maybe a nice new collected volume to support the line later on in 2013?

      @Warren: Steve's already answered that somewhere in this huge list of comments: The only thing he took with him when he left Metagaming was the rights to Ogre and GEV. If you want a new copy of WarpWar, you'll have to go to the Decision Games pages, under Excaliber [sic] Games and look it up there -- I just ordered one myself not too long ago....

      One other thing - can we get "extra copy of the rule book" as an add on? It's often nice for each player to have their own copy of the rules.

      And speaking of goals, did SJGames end up with the rights to any of the other minigames? Warpwar, for example, had really good game play.

      I'm still examining the results of the survey and cross-referencing a little, but one thing is obvious - more map overlays. So I'm considering 5 tiles on the custom-made counter sheet and not 3. More thoughts later....

      Creator Marty Barylski on May 5, 2012

      I'll take a total pass on Battlesuit - sadly it is not worth reprinting as it is. And a major re-design seems like another future expansion not something that can be delivered as part of this project. I personally prefer some of the good ideas which are tied with this product release, we have lots of great stuff on the plate for 2013 already.... I would grab a pocket version of GEV as an add-on. I know I've seen that idea around here somewhere.

      This may be answered somewhere, but I haven't seen it in the comments...
      We can order the "Targets go Boom!" KS sheet as an extra - will the "Exclusive Sheet #2" be
      available as an add-on as well? Even if the final counter list isn't finalized, can that be added to the orders list for A) people who want more copies of everything, and B) people who can't afford to shell out the whole cost of a full copy of the game today (or have already promised their FLGS that they'll buy OGRE there) and want to be able have all the KS goodies?
      Besides, I think it'd be fun for my end survey to include "$8 for Targets go Boom and another $8 for mystery KS goodies sheet"

      If you do new overlays, I propose 1) an airfield and 2) a rail yard. Both would be multi-hex. These could be used as objectives or simple scenic variety. Some sort of ridgeline/escarpment/mesa overlay would also be awesome - these would be impassable along one or more edges.

      I am fond of Battlesuit-- shoot, anything that came in a black plastic box is awesome. The extra large Denis Loubet counters are awesome. You know, GURPS always had a Battlesuit skill in it... but I never really got any use out of it. The Battlesuit microgame actually delivered what I wanted.

      Maybe if Steve Jackson could design a new Battlesuit game that plays faster/easier and that doesn't burn out the brain so badly...?

      On the other hand... new Battlesuit map sheets and nicer Battlesuit counters and more scenarios.... Battlesuit Deluxe. Yeah... I'd play that. (Especially if there were a set of Steve Jackson designed variant rules to modernize just a bit-- though there is some charm to the original.)

      Looking at the chart is seems very clear that Map Overlays are wanted the most and hated the least. Overlays got more "very important!" votes (445) than any other category, more "important" votes (485) than any other category, and fewer "marginal" and "not needed" votes than any other categories, by a huge margin.

      Creator Roland Boshnack on May 5, 2012

      I'm really not as thrilled about Battlesuit. One of the beauties of Ogre is that it's quick and easy to play, while Battlesuit felt like the kind of detailed simulation that turned me off from older wargames. Mind you, I'm not saying it's as bad as, say, Advanced Squad Leader, it's just that it isn't as fun-and-fast as Ogre. When a game includes rules like, "don't count too fast," then my enjoyment level plummets. Having to carefully monitor my opponent's every "dot" of movement was similarly unfun.

      I intend 600 to be amazing. It is going to have to be amazing-nice rather than amaziing-boggling because of an unfortunate delay in the bogglifier. Please do not be disappointed with me for tying to be nice rather than cackling madly. This happens so rarely. I try so hard to be wicked, and the schedule gets a little bit our of whack, and the next think I know, I am smiling, and signing books, and saying "Why that is a nice Pomeranian, and indeed he does look as though understands every word." Yet, if the scurrying green beetles can hear, they will tell a different tale in their stridulations.

      @Dustin... yer kiddin right?
      You sir for no more gelt than you have shelled out already are (because other people not you, are buying in) getting extra treats.
      SJgames in their wisdom is swapping out a prize (THEY HAVE NOT ANNOUNCED) for another prize also not announced, if Mr. Steve had not declared the change no-one would have known.
      We are STILL getting a reward at 600K and the way this kickstart is trending we'll still get the original bonus at whatever new level it's scheduled for. After all the reason the change was made is because we will almost certainly roar past 0.6M before Monday when when he could post the original 600k prize.
      But if you truly are offended... I am sure you can somehow delay pledges enough so that he can post the old level 0.6M prize.
      Personally I'd rather have two prizes instead of one, but I guess I'm silly like that.

Be aware of all this before you support at this level, please, because you ship to Brazil entirely at your own risk. (Brazil only.)

    Sponsorship at this level will improve the rulebook by letting us hire a fantastic illustrator to do some character images. The $335 level . . . PLUS our artist, working from your photo, will put you into rulebook illustrations, and your name will appear in the credits. Depending on your own look and your preferences, you might be an officer, a trooper, a tanker, a refugee, a civilian leader, a technician . . . (Okay, at this level we will ship your game anywhere.)

    You are sponsoring a whole 8" x 10” counter sheet, which will go into every copy of the game. We’ll work with you to determine what goes on the sheet and how it will be colored. The unit design will have to fit Ogre canon (no clown faces on the Superheavy Tanks, no overt advertising on the Ogres . . .) but that still leaves a lot of leeway. Your name will go on the sheet as sponsor, and we’ll send you at least a dozen extra copies of the sheet. This also includes everything at the $100 level. (Again, shipped anywhere.)

    Your own exclusive 8" x 10” counter sheet. Want an Ogre with your logo on it? Want a squadron of pink GEVs? No problem. We’ll work with you on colors, design, and choice of dies. You’ll also be able to print your logo, name, or other stuff on the margins of the sheet. This could be a promo item for a convention, distributor, or big retail store. These sheets won’t go into the actual game. We will ship you at least 3,000. We’ll own the remaining copies but (unless you wish otherwise) they’ll stay in our warehouse for at least a year after the new Ogre game is released. If you want to resell your sheets, rather than just give them away, you’ll have to sign a licensing agreement to use the Ogre name and images, but that won’t cost you extra. This also includes everything at the $100 level. (Shipping free in the US. You will pay actual shipping costs outside the US.)

    Your own exclusive 10.5 x 17.125” counter sheet. You must use one of our existing dies; your best choices are Combine armor, Paneuro armor, or a sheet full of Ogres. Time is short, so you must either provide your own art to our specs, or make the "paint" job simple. You’ll still be able to print your logo, name, or other stuff on the margins of the sheet. These sheets won’t go into the actual game. We will ship you at least 3,000. We’ll own the remaining copies but (unless you wish otherwise) they’ll stay in our warehouse for at least a year after the new Ogre game is released.

    Your Own Ogre Convention. Steve Jackson will attend your 2-day Ogre event anywhere in the US or Canada (you can ask about other locations, but no promises!). You will need to cover Steve’s hotel and travel costs separately, and dates have to fit his existing commitments, so factor that in, and please talk to Steve directly (post a comment with your contact info) before you pledge! You also get four copies of the Kickstarter edition, your choice of $600 worth of Ogre swag or extras, and naming rights to one Ogre in the Designer's Edition as described for the $200 level. Steve will bring a large stack of party favors (including three of our prototype 3-D Ogres which you can use as prizes), run events, talk about upcoming projects, sign things, and other general convention stuff. Or you can do it as a house party and only invite a few people. Your call.
