Ogre Extras Available Now!!!

3 likes

Many of you have been asking the same question for several weeks now: "How can I buy more of the Ogre extras?" Well, as of this moment you can buy Ogre extras from our site. We have a very limited quantity of a number of the extras (under 100 pieces of some items) so if you must have these I recommend grabbing them now and then coming back to read this update. The words will still be here after the goodies are gone.

Grab Your Ogre Extras!
Grab Your Ogre Extras!

Where Are The Shirts, Trays, And . . . ???

Since we are still working through replacing damaged items we are not comfortable with opening our entire supply to you guys at this time. Our current plan is to hold some items back so that we can fulfill replacement requests. Later (exact time undecided) we will offer more Ogre extras. And yes, we will definitely post an update to let all of you know when a second round of extras are available.

Free Pocket Ogre This Weekend!

Another popular question -- "How can I get more copies of Pocket Ogre?" -- is answered in two ways:

  • 1. Wait until next summer when we release Pocket Ogre and buy as many as you can find.
  • 2. Kickstarter backers who spend $50 or more on Ogre extras this weekend (before the end of the day, December 8) will receive one free copy of Pocket Ogre

This is while supplies last, but we think we have plenty of copies to last through the weekend. Please don't remind us that we also (at one time) thought that 3,000 copies of the Ogre Designer's Edition would cover demand . . . it's amazing to think just how dramatically this Kickstarter project -- and all of you! -- affected our plans for Ogre.

More Minis!

One of the stretch goals you unlocked brought the Ogre minis back into production, and as of this morning minis were again restocked. If you're looking for more Ogre minis please take a look at the latest restock.

Thank You!

Thank you, everyone, for your support and patience. I cannot personally thank you guys enough for how successful you have made the Ogre Designer's Edition. And all of us here at Steve Jackson Games look forward to your continued encouragement and support as we leave 2013 and move into 2014 . . . and as the Car Wars project begins to pick up speed. 

If there is anything I can do to make your Ogre games more enjoyable please don't hesitate to ask. I am almost always available -- phil@sjgames.com -- and I will try to respond to all mail quickly.

Mini Car Wars Returns

Remember Mini Car Wars, the 1987 version that was printed as a single sheet of paper? It's coming back. Actually, it's already back, because those of you who had already bought it on e23 have gotten the upgrade notice.

Available Now at e23!
Available Now at e23!

This is the smallest Car Wars version we have ever done – it seemed like a good opening release for the 6th Edition project! Next summer we'll reprint Car Wars Classic. This is the boxed Fourth Edition rule set, very much as it first appeared in 1990, but this time the counters will be die-cut. Now you'll have some little samplers of autodueling goodness while we work on the big stuff!

More Bundles Available Now

We have uncovered more forgotten games and magazines in our warehouse and you can grab these treasures for yourself . . . if you act quickly. These will not last long at all.

Enjoy, guys! And don't forget that tomorrow the Ogre extras go live on Warehouse 23.

Warehouse Finds: Car Wars, Space Gamer, And GURPS

5 likes

One of the unexpected side effects of the Ogre Designer's Edition has been the need to dig into every corner of our warehouse: We need space!!! Some of those corners included treasures, so we're offering bundles of classic goodness for everyone who loves revisiting gaming history.

  • Space Gamer Bundle: This is a collection of 25 random issues of Space Gamer priced at $20. And yes, there are some issues with Ogre and Car Wars articles.
  • Car Wars Bundle: $10 for one Compendium (first or second edition) and three random Car Wars supplements. (I saw a Combat Showcase -- my favorite of the classic guides to vehicles -- as well as several different Road Atlas and Survival Guide volumes and various issues of ADQ.)
  • GURPS Bundle: Five pre-Fourth Edition GURPS books for only $20!

These bundles are limited and each one would make a fantastic gaming gift. The Car Wars bundles are a great way to introduce your friends to the classic Car Wars game . . . and an amazing way to get them excited about the upcoming Kickstarter project.

There's one more bit of Car Wars news to share, but not until later today . . .

If you are collecting the Ogre Miniatures box sets from Warehouse 23 then you have until Monday, December 9th, 2013 to buy sets before the boxes are no longer available. After that date individual minis will be cast as time allows, but we will not restock the box sets. Are you looking for deals on minis? This is your last chance!

There are several individual minis available -- and more on the way! -- so if you're looking at building your Ogre Miniatures army to use on the new Ogre Designer's Edition maps this is a great time to put together your forces. You can find the list of all available minis right here.
