35 years after the first publication of OGRE, we're coming back with a massive new edition, and YOU can make it better.

Have We Mentioned That The Box Is Big?

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 kickstart@sjgames.com 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

    3. Creator Brian Reynolds on July 20, 2013

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

    4. Creator Robert Allen on July 19, 2013

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

    5. Creator John S. Fetzik on July 19, 2013

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

    6. Creator Philip Reed on July 19, 2013

      @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."

    7. Creator Robert Allen on July 19, 2013

      This is starting to feel like teasing.

    8. Creator Steve Jackson Games on July 19, 2013

      @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. Creator Scott Walker on July 18, 2013

      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....

    11. Creator Ryan on July 18, 2013

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

    12. Creator John H. on July 18, 2013

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

    13. Creator Sean Lambert (sum1els) on July 18, 2013

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

    14. Creator KevinR on July 18, 2013

      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.

    15. Creator Casey & Mike on July 18, 2013

      What an odd selection of game boxes!

    16. Creator Stephen Rochelle on July 18, 2013

      @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. Creator Jayna Pavlin on July 18, 2013

      size doesn't matter :-)

    18. Creator Robert Gurskey on July 18, 2013

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

    19. Creator Jason Zavoda on July 18, 2013

      That is one big box.

    20. Creator Matt Price on July 18, 2013

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

    21. Creator NickS on July 18, 2013

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

    22. Creator Steve Jackson Games on July 18, 2013

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

    23. Creator Paul Schwartz on July 18, 2013

      I think I need to get my chiropractor's # in a accessible spot

    24. Creator Xander Guzman on July 18, 2013

      What do I do if I need to update my shipping address? Sorry I know you've mentioned it before but can't find it.

    25. Creator pcalvi on July 18, 2013

      Ooh, now stick a Mini Cooper in there!

    26. Creator Aaron Morgan on July 18, 2013

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

    27. Creator Matthew Hirsch on July 18, 2013

      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?

    28. Creator Rob Crawford on July 18, 2013

      OK, but compare it to a copy of Advanced Squad Leader...

    29. Creator Robin Furr on July 18, 2013

      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. Creator Daniel Magnan on July 18, 2013

      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. Creator Robert Carpenter on July 18, 2013

      ANY QUESTIONS?

    32. Creator William Minsinger on July 18, 2013

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

    33. Creator John S. Fetzik on July 18, 2013

      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? ;-)

    34. Creator Eric Nielsen on July 18, 2013

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

    35. Creator Susan Davis on July 18, 2013

      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....

    36. Creator David Culp on July 18, 2013

      Thats just insane!!

    37. Creator Jude M on July 18, 2013

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

    38. Creator Bob Manikowski on July 18, 2013

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

    39. Creator Baelthazar on July 18, 2013

      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!

    40. Creator John H. on July 18, 2013

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

    41. Creator William A Bellamy on July 18, 2013

      Holy cow! I actually have that Buck Rogers game.

    42. Creator Steve Jackson Games on July 18, 2013

      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

    43. Creator Matt on July 18, 2013

      How much you want for that sealed space hulk?

    44. Creator Barry Kendall on July 18, 2013

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

      "My bedroom is guarded by an OGRE."

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

    45. Creator Damien Macomber on July 18, 2013

      Dang Bob, beat me to ti. In case he bails out, how much for the Space Hulk?

    46. Creator Richard Wagoner on July 18, 2013

      WOW! Do you include a forklift so we can move the box?

    47. Creator Bob Manikowski on July 18, 2013

      Looks awesome and I am eagerly looking forward to receiving this!

      P.S. How much for the sealed Space Hulk? ;)

    48. Creator Kassidy Helfant on July 18, 2013

      Game producer troll level: Maximum.

    49. Creator Kevin J. Maroney on July 18, 2013

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