ACD Sheets Are Coming Back!

15 likes

When we released the Ogre Designer's Edition ACD sponsored sheets into the wild a few weeks ago, we were stunned at the response, as were the servers at Warehouse 23.

With that in mind, we reached out to ACD. They graciously sold us 500 sheets to restock the shelves in Warehouse 23, and we’ll be releasing those sheets at 2 p.m. Central Standard Time on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

To increase the chances for folks who want a sheet and didn't get it during the last go-around, we’re going to put a few guidelines in place.

  • I’m going to invoke Wheaton’s Law here. Don’t be a… well, if you’re not sure what Wheaton’s Law is, go read it. If you already got your ACD sheet, hang on for a bit and let someone else get theirs, okay?
  • We are limiting purchases of the ACD sheets to ONE PER ORDER during the first 24 hours. These sheets will only be visible to our KS backers during that first 24 hours, so hopefully we can make sure that if you want one you can get it. Yes, I know. That wasn’t a limit we placed on the LAST release, and we learned a lesson on that. If you order more than one sheet, we will cancel your entire order. I know it sounds cranky but there you have it.
  • At the end of that first 24 hour period, the order limit will revert to Warehouse 23 standards.
  • ACD has set their price for the sheet at $10, and we're now matching their price to support our partners.

Now, with all the cranky stuff out of the way, we are still working hard to move Ogre projects along and I’ll keep you updated as much as possible!

Car Wars First Peek at BoardGameGeek.con

23 likes

The fans have been patiently waiting as we've worked on the new edition of Car Wars, and now it's time to push it out on stage and see how it dances.

I'm Car Wars Line Editor Scott Haring, and I will be demonstrating/playtesting the new 6th Edition of Car Wars at BoardGameGeek.con, held Nov. 19-23, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport in beautiful Arlington, TX. Scheduling is still a bit up in the air, but we will have sessions on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and maybe more. I'm very excited about this, and I hope you all are, too! Stay tuned for further developments as they are confirmed.

Car Wars Classic Now Available!

7 likes

...But not for long. The Car Wars Classic boxed set finally arrived at our warehouse, and is now available at Warehouse 23! Hurry, because supplies are limited.

Speaking of limited supplies, our hobby distributor is already sold out of Car Wars Classic, so the copies showing up at your local game store are going to be the last of them until the hastily ordered reprint shows up. Next April.

Moral of the story -- get your Car Wars Classic now!

Counter Sheet Report

We have news on the status of four of the sponsored counter sheets

Two of them are now available in Warehouse 23! We have the blessing of ACD to make their sheet available at retail. We have heard nothing more from Walt Freitag and hope that, whatever is going on with him, he pulls through. If we do hear anything, we'll share; I know a number of you have expressed concern.

The ACD counter sheet, with the stylish yellow-and-blue buildings, Fencer, and Dopp, is $8.00. 

The Uncommon Ogres sheets, which have never AFAIK been seen in the wild, are $15 for the set of two.

Fire Mountain Games Sheets (Nightfall)

I talked personally with Gary McBride, and we have agreed on an approach to take, and you'll like it. Forgive me for not being specific, but Murphy's Law teaches me to wait till it's all nailed down. But experience teaches me to at least tell you that yes, things are moving forward. Thanks again to Michael Clarke for helping to keep everyone in communication.

Drew Metzger's Sheets (Barbarians at the Gate)

With Drew's permission, I will quote the last thing I got from Drew about his sheets:

"Things are just about wrapped up here. I have a 20-page book of rules, art and scenarios to accompany the sheets. I'm hoping to ship the week of Halloween.

"I have re-opened orders with good results. They can be placed at the sponsored counters page on your website. I am accepting international orders too, but need those interested to contact me for shipping estimates. They can do so at metzgerz2@earthlink.net

"Included in my sales are the 400 Tactical & Strategic Objectives counter sheets from Tiffin Games from our swap. I have sold over half of those sheets, and although I am currently holding orders to one sheet per person (to maximize the availability to those interested), I will likely remove the restriction later next week.

"I have one request: I have a pair of emails that are bouncing back to me from invalid email addresses of people that pre-ordered. Could you ask any who have pre-ordered from me that are NOT receiving my regular Updates to contact me at metzgerz2@earthlink.net ? I wish to confirm their addresses.

"As previously mentioned, I will be sending books to all those who purchased sheets at the Launch Party as well. They are not forgotten! "

Other Goodies Still Remain

We also have a limited number of Ogre Designer’s Edition regular boxes, Kickstarter A and B games, and the Vulcans & Friends and Targets Go Boom sheets.  You'll need to be logged in to view the product pages.

Likewise, we have limited numbers of black, grey, green, maroon, and navy polos, the Kovalic Ogre shirt in blue, black, and tan, and the classic green and orange shirt.

As always, the original Pocket Ogre is still available

The Kickstarter-exclusive items such as Targets Go Boom won’t be visible to anyone outside the Ogre Kickstarter group we created on the site, so look for the badge under the "my groups" section of your W23 account page to make sure you're in! If you find that you are not in that group, write us at orders@sjgames.com.

Warehouse 23 Badges and Ogre Boxes.

6 likes

You may wonder how to tell if you're able to view and purchase the exclusive Ogre Kickstarter items on the store when they become available on the 21st. To help you with that, we've implemented a badge system on Warehouse 23.

Simply log into your account on W23 and go to the My Account page. Once there, if you've been successfully imported from our Ogre database, you'll see a section labeled My Groups and the following image:

If you see the image on your account page, then you'll be able to see and purchase any of the Ogre Kickstarter exclusive items. If you don't see anything like that, then please write to kickstart@sjgames.com and let us know your store login and email. Once we've confirmed you were a Kickstarter backer, we'll update your W23 account and let you know to check for your badge again.

To clarify yesterday's update, we will not be selling empty Ogre Designer's Edition boxes.  We will only be selling complete games.
