New Electronic Releases!

Posted by Steve Jackson Games (Creator)

Electrons are a lot lighter than the final Ogre box will be, so we've been getting ready for the big release with two items on our digital goods store, e23:

Ogre Designer's Edition Quick Start Rules: These "quick start" rules are designed as a great introduction to the world of Ogre, helping new players get started playing right away. It even includes the classic Mark III Attack and Mark V Attack scenarios, so new players will have a reason to fight!

Ogre Classic Counters: These black-and-white counters recreate (on a big scale) the classic chits from the 1977 version of the game. Print as many as you need to merge the best of old-school aesthetics with modern mayhem!

Both of these are free to download as PDFs, right now from e23. (Soon you'll also be able to buy Classic Counters as commercially printed, die-cut sheets from Warehouse 23; we'll be sure to let you know once they're available.)

      +1 to Car Wars :)

      I am very glad to get the digital version of the classic counters. This is a very important component of the Kickstarter project for me. Laser prints at 1' look fantastic. Even better is that all of the counters, except five types of buildings, are vector art and scale to any size without loss of resolution. As 2.875" counters a counter sheet makes a very attractive 30" x 36" poster.

      Now when do we get to go crazy over Car Wars?
      .
      Also, I've tried visiting the forums but they're just too massive to read through, totally overwhelming. Before you start the Car Wars project could you write up a synopsis of what you're planning to do?

      My gosh, the classics are beautiful! Soooo much nicer than the original 1/2", and now i can scale them up to my Ogre Deluxe boards :-D.

      And new Ogre counters! And a broken-down train! Mobile CP! New PC pics! Heavy Weapons!

      Thank you, SJ(G)!
