Launch Party East: Success!

Posted by Steve Jackson Games (Creator)

Launch Party East was a success! Here's what Sean Ferris had to say:

"The Ogre Launch Party East went very well. We had 40 people throughout the day that came for the party, plus the regular customers who were asking tons of questions. Joe Bloch was a tremendous help! Frank and his staff (especially Jersey Joe) were great! We also had a MIB in training who was up to the task! We had tons (or close to it, there were a dozen Kickstarter copies there) of Ogre fun! Several people traveled long distances and said it was worth it!!! (7 from PA, 2 from NY and one was Cooperstown area, 1 from MD, and 1 got a hotel because he came from VA, with the remainder from all parts NJ). There is even talk of a monthly Ogre meet up here at TOGIT!"

Pics or it didn't happen! BTW, we think the Ogre cake is particularly cool.

      Not launch party related, but I just want to say "Thanks" to the shipping crew for fixing my missing swag so quickly. I reported it missing on late Monday (22:00 EST) and the missing items showed up today. Outstanding!!

      As I stepped out of my house yesterday morning to get the mail, what do I see, but Ogre's rolling down the driveway to my door. Fortunately, I had the stop codes so they didn't crush the house.

      I'll be unpacking in a week or so when my friend is available. Thanks.

      The launch party was great. Thanks to Sean and TOGIT for making it happen. Also thanks to Steve, Phil and the whole SJG team for giving us all a reason to get together in the first place.

      PS: Hello from VA to new Ogre friends!

      The cake was only about half the size of the box because that was all that could fit in the oven!

      I think this is the first time an infantry unit has done that amount of damage to an Ogre.

      It was a great event - cheers to The Only Game in Town, they made the event very welcoming, and provided a great atmosphere. I drove from near Cooperstown for the event, and definitely thought it was worth it. :)

      The cake is rather awesome. Did anyone get a picture of it before it was eaten?

      Had a great time at the launch party. I did a write-up myself, with more pictures, here:

      The cake should have been the same size as the box.
