Have We Mentioned That The Box Is Big?

Posted by Steve Jackson Games (Creator)
Just in case it wasn't clear, we thought we would post a handful of photos of the Ogre Designer's Edition box next to other games. And then we thought it would be fun to post photos of other games inside the Ogre box.

      @David - Many people actually do change their addresses through the KS mail system; the process is exactly the same other than I have one less step to look up their email when they message directly.

      I don't see any reason to explain the actual process further in case anyone devious is looking for information on how to buck the system. I also think that while the possibility certainly exists, the probability is very low - you're talking committing a federal crime for a (albeit super awesome) board game. -- Brandon

      I just hope its not possible for someone to scam/steal someone elses copy with that address change method you mentioned.

      Id feel safer if you could only change the address through kickstarter etc

      How about a photo of the original edition of Ogre in the Ogre Designer's Edition box?

      @Philip Reed - Thank you for the clarification, AND YET MORE TEASING. Can you bring me back my box? That'd be swell.

      I know what is needed. We need a picture of the original Ogre in the new box. ;-)

      @Robert Allen - Nah. Teasing would be something like me posting: "Robert, I'm sorry. We didn't mean to tease you at all. I promise not to post any photos from the factory when I'm there later this month."

      This is starting to feel like teasing.

      @Matt - There are no cats in the warehouse due to the presence of the tentacle monster. Daniel and I have actually discussed sending the box home with a cat owning employee and getting cat photos but it hasn't happened yet (and may never happen. . . .)

      @KevinR - I was hoping the angle on the shot with Broadsides in it would best convey a sense of depth. The box is 14.5cm deep, nearly half a foot!

      @Casey - This was a random selection based on finding the largest boxed games in our archive.

      Have y'all tried dumping a case (or four) of Battlefields/Reinforcement Pack in the box -- that may give a decent estimate of how many Pocket Ogres will fit.

    10. Scott Walker on

      Good Grief. It's huge. I think this is definitely the biggest single game box I've ever seen. I've got half the games used to compare with it. Not Space Hulk, though; that would be a nice collectible. I could see a really great Photoshop contest developing, trying to properly show the scale and perspective of Ogre....

      Wait, you have a sealed copy of Space Hulk 3rd Edition sitting around collecting dust?

    12. John H. on

      I want a picture of Steve sitting in the Ogre box "fort", peeking out over the edge.

    13. Sean Lambert (sum1els)

      I have a shelf that looks almost the same as that - the oversized shelf! Of course, it's already full, so...

    14. KevinR

      The shot that is missing is showing that Ogre is 50%-100% deeper than the others as well. You might be able to fit four Space Hulk in an Ogre box.

      What an odd selection of game boxes!

    16. Stephen Rochelle on

      @Matthew Hirsch: the limiting factor will probably be maps. That's 5 simultaneous games assuming you don't create any half-map scenarios. You could manage 5 Ogre-vs-units or Ogres-vs-Ogres games just fine with the included counter mix; Steve ran his 12-simultaneous-games thing at Origins using the counters from their (single) final proof copy.

    17. Jayna Pavlin

      size doesn't matter :-)

    18. Robert Gurskey on

      I don't own any of those games, except OGRE.

    19. Jason Zavoda on

      That is one big box.

    20. Matt Price on

      Why are there no photos of cats in this box? This is a superior box for such types of photos.

      Why, oh why did I order an extra set of counters? Those poor people who ordered multiple copies of the game . . . :)

      @Xander - Easiest way for address changes is just email with the new address (and the email address used to respond to the survey if sending from a different email address). ~Brandon

      Space Hulk turned back into Space Banner after that embarassing photo. :)

      I do have a question... how many *simultaneous* games of Ogre could one play out of that box, given the multiple Ogres, units, maps, etc? I've only ordered one copy, but how many friends could I have playing at the same time?

      In all seriousness, we need to get some kind of "official" design together for an OGRE Box Table. I have some ideas, but I ain't no furniture designer.

    30. Daniel M

      I was thinking that it was a problem that it will not fit on any of my shelves, but then I realized that was ok because it can just act as a table.

    31. William Minsinger on

      oh my god, what I have done? I don't have a shelf big enough for this game!

      Great Caesar's Ghost! That thing is huge!

      Are you going to sell the optional legs to make it a table that were mentioned at Gen Con last year or will I have to run to Ikea? ;-)

    33. Eric N.

      Do you have a shipping time estimate? I have some travel coming up and may need to update shipping addresses.

    34. Susan Davis

      The sick thing is that this is for a simple little pocket box game. Okay, three pocket boxes and a smaller-than-pocket-box expansion, but still....

    35. David Culp

      Thats just insane!!

    36. Jude M on

      You know, I might be way off, but it almost seems like the Ogre DE box is kind of, well, big.

      By all means let the tentacle monster play Space Hulk first...then I will buy it..

    38. Baelthazar

      I'm going to need a bigger boat... errr... closet.

      Best thing ever - that you have a copy of Buck Rodgers. I thought I was the only person to have played that!

    39. John H. on

      It's exactly as big as I expected - 2 x 2 x 4 reams of paper.

    40. William A Bellamy on

      Holy cow! I actually have that Buck Rogers game.

    41. Steve Jackson Games 21-time creator on

      I think the tentacle monster out in the warehouse would get very upset to learn we had sold its copy of Space Hulk before it had a chance to play it! ~Brandon

    42. Matt on

      How much you want for that sealed space hulk?

      Holy. Cow.
      I was right, it's time to build the shelf above the bedroom door. The OGRE shelf.

      Thank goodness there's a short hallway there so my wife won't have to look at it from the bed!

      Months ago, I asked if could buy an empty box just to store my entire microgames collection. Still holding out hope of getting one!
