Earlier this year, Sam and I visited China to watch copies of the Ogre Designer's Edition come together. We wanted to share video immediately, but work on the final stages of finishing the game launch delayed our efforts . . . until now!

Please accept my apology that this video is so very late, but I hope the peek at the process more than makes up for the time we spent getting video together to share with you.

Launch Party West!

Ogre fans in San Francisco are planning a launch party on November 9. (By they they should all have their sets!) Venue and exact time TBA. Contact Andrew Walters, mib0144@sbcglobal.net , for more info.

He says: "We're planning the biggest scenarios the table will support, a trivia game, and some more creative stuff. I'm pondering an obscure artifact exposition, since some of us have some rarities. If we can borrow a projector there's a program called Boxer that will let us play the DOS Ogre game on our Macs."

And yes, SJ Games will send some prize support, including some soon-to-be rarities!

Pretty Green Tape

Three containers received now, and the last one went VERY smoothly. It was unloaded in one hour and 45 minutes! Kudos to the OLF team.

Look what they found in the LAST row of Container #3! I'm thinking that we should (after ship date, of course) auction this one off to benefit a charity.

Let me get some feedback here. Who among our supporters would OBJECT if we did a special-copy benefit auction (or even a few) and threw them open to everyone? If there are any significant number of objections, then, if we do an auction at all, only KS supporters will be allowed to bid. Otherwise, we could open them to everyone and probably earn more for charity.

Address Change Deadline

The third container is being unloaded as I write this -- YAY! -- and our business office will sit down soon to generate the necessary paperwork for your games to get pulled for shipping. Part of this includes addresses, so this is a final call for address changes. Please e-mail any changes to kickstart@sjgames.com before 8am Texas time on Friday, September 27th.

We're still on track to start shipping games on October 21st. One month from tomorrow the package carriers of the world will feel the full weight of this Kickstarter project crash down on them; thank you, everyone, for your patience and for making this game so very, very amazing.
