Update #27

Support The LEGO Ogre!

(Here's the new surrrrrrrvey, about many things.)

I’m a big LEGO nut, so it makes me happy when I see LEGO models of Ogres. And over the years there have been some good ones. But now Glen Wadleigh has built the best Ogres yet. And, thanks to a new LEGO program called CUUSOO, you can support him, without committing any money, and with enough support, it might actually become an official LEGO release!

So please do! If  even half of our Kickstarter supporters take a couple of minutes to do this, Ogre will be on their top “most supported” page. Amazing but true.  So open another browser window and we’re off . . .

Getting A CUUSOO Account

Go to the Ogre display model.  Admire it and decide you want to support it!

Click the “Sign up” button. They will require the following info: Username, Email Address, Confirming Email, Password, and a Date of Birth. (Age 13+ can support projects. We assume almost all our Ogre supporters are old enough.)

Check box for Terms of Service.

Click on “Sign Me Up!”

You will be sent a confirmation email with a link.

Click on the link and it will take you to a login screen. Log in. Then go back to the Display Model page and click the big Green support button. Thanks!

The way CUUSOO works, each project is supported separately, so once you're logged in, please click the project for gaming-scale Ogre units, as well.

While you’re at it, check out Glen Wadleigh’s other science fiction projects on CUUSOO, and support them too if you like them. Just a click :)

Firefly Minifig Sets

Corellian Defender

Finally, if you’re really feeling nice, this one is a personal favorite of mine, and it’s already close to the 10,000 supporters that it takes for LEGO to consider making it real. Can we push it over?

Western Modular Buildings

Thanks!

      +1 Wolf90. Something like that to keep it simple, especially for all the people new to Ogre who might not know the backstory. By the way and on the topic of surveys, I added Ogre Fiction as desired swag. I realize it's probably not officially swag, but there was a spare comment field there......

      Besides, the Fencer and Doppelsoldner get to use THEIR names...let's be fair to the other PE Ogres!

      Let's here it for the Paneuropean Names! We're smart enough to follow the difference.....right?
      .
      --crickets--
      .
      Seriously, as long as the record sheets said "Mark I/Pikeman" and "Mark III/Legionnarie" etc., how complicated is this? And as Steve said in the question, the back-history explains why the different names. Perhaps some more Ogre history might make in into the light too...

      sj said: " Having said that, they do sometimes do things specifically aimed at the Adult Fan Of Lego. Can't possibly succeed if we don't try."
      .
      Hmm, I may have come across wrong. I'm *VERY STRONGLY* in favor of LEGO supporting this. And I think there's a reasonable chance they will do it. CUUSOO is a wonderful tool that they are stretching and working with in new ways... not at all unlike how SJG is bending KS into something more than it was ;).
      .
      So I agree... we try! And if it doesn't work via CUUSOO, we find other outlets. I don't have a big problem with subject creep in this KS project, because it's that cross-fertilization that's providing new and unexpected content. Had SJG not used KS in this fashion, they would have under-produced the production run, which would have hurt them (and us)... and had they not listened to 'out of bounds' talk,they wouldn't have had such a strong channel to show support for CW. And had others not chimed in, the LEGO connection wouldn't have popped up, which has gotten some attention from folks like me :)

      Christopher and Duncan - I totally failed to respond to your threadstarter mention of Mobile Frame Zero. YES. Not only is it LEGO, and not only do we have giant robots, but the builds are very elegant.
      Stephen - In that case, they'll all say "I told you fools, I told you, but did you listen, no. So the heck with you. I'm going home and play CAR WARS." (For the literalists among us, that is what we call a 'joke'. Please do not go off and quote it without this disclaimer. This line is part of the disclaimer, too. And this one. But this one is not. This one is, though.)

      A thought on the Car Wars shirt: if it says "I made Steve Jackson work on..." but the $700,000 stretch goal isn't hit, won't we all look a little silly? I know we're trending toward hitting it, and I'm ordering one anyway, but I wanted to throw that out there.

      I did the surrrrrvey and wanted to add a comment to question 1. The comment is that I like the names better as long as that same name shows up on the record sheets. It might be implicitly obvious to everybody else that that is the plan, but i wanted to put a quick note here for consideration just in case.

      Creator Joseph Bloch on May 7, 2012

      Cross-promotion of Kickstarter projects is the next big thing about to hit. It did wonders for mine and several others, and I'm glad to see that SJG has come upon it almost intuitively.

      "Regressive kickstarter projects"; yeah, that's another thing that's going to be HUGE, if Kickstarter can figure out a way to make it easy from a technical standpoint.

      I'm not a swag guy. I do appreciate an occasional shirt, but it has to be either really gorgeous or really funny, ideally in unobtrusively geeky ways, and most swag shirts I've seen are neither. I'm up for buying addons that directly enhance a game (not automatically the one I'm kickstarting, but it helps), or are generically useful, but stuff that's just decorative, count me out.

      OK. I did the survey and for the extra I added an other that makes sense to me. Let me see what other people think? How able an Ogre moleskine notebook. An Ogre on the front cover and I can keep my war notes and homegrown scenarios, and drawings of new Ogre designs.

      I appreciate the non-Ogre stuff in these updates. They're informing me about stuff I never heard about but now I want to support. And I agree with others who say it adds to the excitement. Besides, if Steve and Phil never deviated from all things Ogre we'd never have a chance to show them how excited we are about the possibility of Car Wars getting the same treatment.

      Creator Jeff Vandine on May 7, 2012

      You know, if they actually produced Ogre LEGOs, can any of you IMAGINE what the sudden explosion in Ogre purchases would do for SJG? They'd all be retired in the Bahamas in a week or two, and we'd have 64 expansion sets and new rules, and new units...man, the mind boggles!
      .
      And since they're based out of Japan, I can pretty much guarantee we'd see Nihon and Chinese Ogres in no time at all! :-)
      .
      So, I think it was GREAT they did a LEGO shout-out!

      Creator Graham Brand on May 7, 2012

      I'm perfectly happy with seeing the non-Ogre KS updates. It all adds to the excitement, creates links between projects, and grows the community. All of which strengthens the process providing a firmer foundation for more great projects in the future.

      I don't buy Lego, but I'd buy that Ogre, and have added my support.

      sj,

      My 1st reaction to update 27 and seeing yet another focus on non-Ogre GAME stuff was "Dude! Didn't you see Ghostbusters? Don't cross the streams!"

      But then I've thought some more and realize that we (the backers and sj games) have all benefited from the kindness of others (BGG, Penny Arcade, Boing Boing, Wired, etc) so now I think I am applauding your work in doing unto others as they have done unto you, pay it forward and all that.

      I also realize that this daily madness will die off in 3 days and while it may continue on your own forums, BGG.com and other places, it will not be the same.

      I guess that is your task for the next 6 months-- get the game out AND continue the PR/publicity process for the non-KS crowd.

    30. Sjgameslogo.small

      Creator Steve Jackson Games on May 7, 2012

      Brian - Valid points. LEGO does what it does. They are not as concerned about "shooty things are bad" since Star Wars does so well for them, but they pay a lot of attention to demographics. Having said that, they do sometimes do things specifically aimed at the Adult Fan Of Lego. Can't possibly succeed if we don't try.

      Michael - On the other hand, I have a really good platform here, for the next three days, to recognize other crowdsourced projects that I think may interest the supporters here. I suppose I don't have an obligation to use it, but I like to. Ogre is not the only game in the world, nor am I the only designer. I am likely to shout out to one or two other good projects before we close down.

      If this takes off, I expect a set of rules to match the scaling. I would SO play Ogre in the back yard with Lego scale models. Hexes? Who needs hexes? I have piles of gravel, concrete blocks and a VERY long tape measure.

      Creator Brian Davis on May 7, 2012

      Also note that if all you want to do is use LEGO in war-games... Brikwars (and various offshoots) have been around for some time, and are *hilarious* fun to play ("my LEGO Sawsall attacks your fluffy white kitten... a 6!! I win, your kitty cat is toast!"). There are "quick" version out there to play with kids, all the way up to variations that really are almost miniatures-with-LEGO, but usually more humor. As to where to get the rare or odd pieces... you order them off Bricklink. It's a LEGO-oriented market for just the pieces you want/need, and it's generally cost-competative with other sources.

      I have to agree with a couple others here. I'm a big fan of everything mentioned, but I'm seeing way too much scope creep. I'm happy to see CW get some attention and I would love to see more gaming cross into Lego. BUT, I'd like the OGRE KS to stay in it's own yard.

      Hmmm... I've worked with LEGO a little bit. And I've seen the issues with licensing. But... that only applies to things put out with an OFFICIAL LEGO seal of approval. I'm not sure what would happen with the use of the name or tank likeness in CUUSOO - A Minecraft model and some space probes have already been approved, and (as cool as it was), a model of "The Winchester" (from Shaun of the Dead) was turned down by (the kid-friendly) LEGO.

      Creator Michael Casavant on May 7, 2012

      I like Ogre, I like Car Wars, I like GEV, and I like LEGO. But I would really like it if we could just stick to the topic of this Kickstarter opportunity. The Ogre kickstarter updates, which I want to receive are basically turning into SJG-themed spam, which is unfortunate; and then there was the update with some random Austin-based company making a computer game(?). I appreciate the excitement, but conflating all of this together is a pain in the ass, or at least that is the technical term. The multi-game, multi-topic pledge levels are getting crazy out of control. Please save the non Ogre stuff for other Kickstarter efforts. Clarity is good.

      Lego OGRE could be interesting, but only as a full set - not just the OGRE itself. Need to see what fits to the new maps, though. And wheeled vehicles would roll around on their own too much... hmm.

      One problem with Mobile Frame Zero is that you're not going to build those models out of a random selection of Lego - you're looking at some really specific parts there, to make them work that small.

      Creator Mike Streufert on May 7, 2012

      I personally think the Car Wars pledge is a little disappointing. I have never played CW, but intend to put money on a KS for it. I just think that it doesn't have anything to do with OGRE or the OGRE universe. *cough* now about pocket GEV *ahem*

    For brick-and-mortar retailers ONLY! For $300, you will receive four copies of the Kickstarter edition of Ogre, one T-shirt, and one extra Kickstarter counter sheet so you can show off the constructible Ogres and buildings. Your store name will be in the list of supporters. NOTE that we WILL call, and/or confirm with distributors, and/or send MIBs to your address, to verify that you are a genuine brick-and-mortar store. Any unverified supporters at this level will receive two copies of the game and nothing else! So do NOT choose this level unless you can prove that you are a real, currently operating, brick-and-mortar retailer. NOTE ALSO that this has to ship to an address in the continental US, but the store itself does not have to be in the US.

    BRAZIL (finally)! One copy of Ogre Sixth Edition, shipped FedEx to Brazil, plus everything from the $25 level, AND your name on the box (on the side of the box bottom), AND a 4-color “thanks for your support” certificate signed by Steve Jackson. Important note: The "small box with certain extras gets free shipping) offer does not apply to Brazil. We will not send a small box to Brazil, because that box cannot be insured, and there have been repeated issues with packages, even insured ones, sent to Brazil. 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.
