Update #40

Kickstarter Exclusive Sheet 3 Surrrrrvey!

I am looking forward to a quiet Memorial Day weekend WORKING ON OGRE.

The survey for the third exclusive counter sheet is here. And no, we still have not posted the Big Survey.

(Shortest update ever!)

      Ben - The Mk. III and Mk. V Attack scenarios on the original map will look very familar to you, and from there you can catch up a bit at a time. If I have not made the "advanced" rules comprehensible, I have FAILed (stupid, stupid Steve creature).
      John - I expect that some of the sentient ones do. Interesting possibilities for fiction there, though if it got very sentimental it would be in Laumer's Bolo AI-angst territory, and it would be hard to do that better than Laumer did. (Asimov's robots? NO comparison.)

      @Ben Know how you feel. Last I played was around 1980. Someone in our gaming group had the game, so (being a starving student) I never bought it myself. I just remember enjoying playing it. So I've been deferring some opinions to those with more experience playing Ogre. But I knew I shouldn't pass up the opportunity to grab a "blast from the past" again!

      I wish I had kept up with Ogre, cause the only version I played was the original table top about 20 years ago so all the development in the Ogre world is, unfortunately beyond me... :( Sad days. So for once I'm thinking I should leave this to the better educated masses.... Wait... Did I really just say that?

      I think the idea of sinking vs floating ogres is interesting. They could float to be offensive weapons or sink for concealment. Mechanically it wouldn't be much different than a submarine.

      I really love the idea of getting to raid Rome in Ogre. History repeats itself. Vatican targets FTW!

      TBH, I love the idea of a "Nuke the Vatican" scenario, though a world with a standing Vatican army is terrifying to say the least.

      @Leila: Even better, *both*. The former can be a secondary bonus target, while the latter can be a Hardened Command Post, surrounded by Laser Turrets. Attacker enters from the southeast, across the Tiber and beyond the Colosseum...

      @ Tom I will let you know. I have been trying everything that I can think of to fix it but no luck. I am sure it is on the Kickstarter side of things though. I know SJ and company are not at fault! Very Frustrating!

    12. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Tom Boucher on May 26, 2012

      @Chuck if you ever figure it out, let me know. I stopped getting them some time ago and now check the site religiously for Ogre and other project updates. I get the 'funding successful' etc notes, but never the updates and I can find nowhere to change that setting and the 'help' section isn't geared towards sponsors.

    13. Aelfwin.small

      Creator Alvin Helms on May 26, 2012

      I know it's absurd, but when I saw the suggestion for "Vatican buildings," I immediately thought: "St. Peter's Basilica."

    14. Sjgameslogo.small

      Creator Steve Jackson Games on May 26, 2012

      Thanks for feedback. I deliberately left out the "don't care" center result - I would like people either to say they want or don't want. That's sort of an experiment too.
      As far as what fits - the total size looks like 18 x 11 right now - lots of space! But it's not JUST about size. Some things interleave, some don't. It's understood that you folks are not voting with total information, and if I feel that I need to come back for clarification, I don't mind if you don't. There have already been almost 2,000 votes on that survey!
      Yes, Ogres sink.
      Chuck - I'm sorry; I don't get useful "help" responses from Kickstarter either.
      Point understood about "nobody wants to HAVE to get one of the extra sheets." Anything that goes on here will have fun potential on its own, even if it's just "Hah, this is the special target to blow up!"

      @Chuck Meeks, try to see if your setting on KS got changed... go to the upper right o the screen and click on the "me" button go to the "edit settings" under the "my account" column, and then to the "notifications" tab, and verify that the check-box is checked for all the projects you want to send you email, are indeed checked. make sure you save the changes... that should fix your problem.

      I am still not receiving any updates from the Kickstarter site. I havn't since about half way through the Kickstarter project. The only way I know about surveys or updates is if I go to Kickstarter and look myself every day or Roy Kubicek happens to send me something. Any Ideas?

    20. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Joe Chaparro on May 26, 2012

      Yeah, I know that they will be available. I even said that I may buy one or more.

      I just don't want stuff that's geared towards those sheets as a part of the boxed set that we get.

    21. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Roy Kubicek on May 26, 2012

      FYI, the $4.5K sheets will be available. There are three mailing lists currently involving them.

      Nihon : thirdpower@hotmail.com
      uncommon OGRES: uncommonogres@verizon.net
      Paneuro units: ogre@firemountaingames.com

    22. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Joe Chaparro on May 26, 2012

      I don't like the idea of counters that require one of the $4.5k sheets to make full use of. Personally, I may buy one, or more, depending on the price, but I don't want to get stuck with something that would be useless otherwise.

      I really like the blank cutouts. That way, you get an Ogre, but could do whatever you want with it.

      As for naval rules, yeah, Ogres sink. It's not even just in the vignettes. I'm pretty sure that there's a rule that says that Ogres can hide in water.

      That's not counting the unofficial naval rules, and even aerial rules that have come out. I'm pretty sure that both of these were in some magazines.

      Actually, just checked. These articles were both reprinted in The Ogre Book, 2nd ed, pages 54 and 50, respectively.

    23. Missing_small

      Creator Leif Bennett on May 26, 2012

      The assumption that it's volume is equal to a pyramid is suspect. Assume that slightly less than half of that pyramid is occupied, and you can get a density of 1 tonne/cu.m.

      On the other hand, 380 tonnes is slightly above 6 times the weight of an M-1 Abrams. Assuming the same density, and scaling the M-1's dimensions, it should be 14.5 x 6.5 x 4.4 meters. With no need for crew spaces, I would have expected the Ogre to be more dense, rather than less dense, than the Abrams.

      Scaling the Abrams up to 25.5 meters long would give a weight of around 2000 tonnes.

    24. Images.small

      Creator Duncan McEwen on May 26, 2012

      @Todd I worked out some Naval units some time ago. Given the scale of the game, almost all naval ships would be the sizes of Ogres to have any meaning. I would love to see a Naval expansion using big ships. I should repost that stuff on the SJG website forums...

      Thanks,
      Duncan

    25. Ogre.small.small

      Creator KevinR on May 26, 2012

      Per canon, Ogres sink. See the usual vignette (Ogre rising out of river in pursuit of CP).

    26. Ogre.small.small

      Creator KevinR on May 26, 2012

      @greypilgrim -- Mark V stats (from blueprint wallpaper):
      Length x width x height (hull) = 25.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 meters.
      Weight = 380 metric tonnes.
      .
      Volume, assuming pyramid = 860 cu m.
      Density = 0.44 tonnes/cu m. (Water is 1 tonne/cu m, cork is about 0.25.)
      .
      If Ogres are water tight, they float (quite high in the water). If they fill with water, they could sink. [Need water to displace about 480 cu m of air, or a volume 20 x 8 x 3 meters.]

      Steve- RE: Todd Junker & 'naval variants -
      Hey - yeah - openwater and/or island area scenarios!
      Do OGRES float? or just act as submersible? There is that miniature of the sensor tower...

    28. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Todd Junker on May 26, 2012

      Steve,

      I know it's too late for the box, but for one of the future expansion sets, how about naval OGREs and naval ships based on their land equivalents. It wold require new rules, but really just variations of the land units and minor restrictions on both land and water based units (GEVs can be used in naval operations, but if disabled, they sink, etc.) I'd love to recreate beach assaults against entrenched and reinforced forces.

      1. Missing a "neutral / don't care" option in the middle.
      2. I want flying pig counters. Call them bio-engineered drones. With attack capabilities (Incoming! Flying pigs poop!)
      3. I bet an entire extra blank sheet would sell as an extra. Replace damaged parts, customize at will, use as gift cards, etc. Not a designed new sheet - same cutouts as some existing sheet - just blank.

    30. Self-portrait.small

      Creator Sven Tscheppainz on May 26, 2012

      How about this? - If you don't know what you are voting on, don't vote and hope (or rather rest assured) that the people who know about it will choose whats best for the game? Anyway it more Ogres, or more Vulcans, or more buildings, or more something - believe me, whatever they put in, it won't be bad!

      That being said I really hope that they do not add too much stuff for fractions that are not in the game from a start. What use is are they, if you decide against buying the extra sheets?

      For me it's best to have two of each of the big tanks (Ogre VI, Vulcan, Fender).

    31. Missing_small

      Creator Richard Libera on May 26, 2012

      @ Pete - yes I needed that too. It made my choices as more factions and an additional OGER sounds cool - but I don't know if I need two more or the Vulcan. That said, I really need to keep an eye out for the Vatican units.

      Vatican units should be gold and white, though, right? Hope you can fit a couple of little tiny crossed keys into the design somewhere....

      Creator Ronster on May 26, 2012

      Yah, I want most/all of it myself. Steve-o, next time you do a survey like his, how about letting us have some parameters, maybe give each option a size and tell us, the total size will be 'X'. That way we can make some intelligent choices as opposed to WAGs.

      If I say yes to Mk VI, does that scotch the Vatican? Green buildings OR Vatican? Are Green buildings AND Vatican AND Nihon buildings possible? 2 of 3? Things like that.

      I already sent in the survey, but maybe you can help those who answer later.

    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.

    1 backer Limited (1 left of 2)

    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.
