Angry Ogre Games' tabletop board games are here! We now have stickers, custom dice, shirts, and music for you to add on. Praise "Bob"!

About this project

Firstly, thanks for checking us out. Secondly, we think you look great too. Thirdly, you may be asking why we're trying to run a campaign for four board games at once. The answer is simple. We can.

Unlike many board game companies, we don't need to rely on single, large orders of one game at a time from an overseas manufacturer. We make the games right here in our facilities, in the USA. This allows us to make individual print runs in whatever quantities we need. It also means that we aren't bound to the schedules of other companies and the variety of delays that can occur so we can get you your games quicker.

Angry Ogre Games is hoping to use the funding from this project to, not only to bring great games to your tabletop groups, but also to expand our operations to be able to offer you more. We have gathered the basic essentials we need to bring you quality board games produced right here in the US. We are able to make boards, cards, and plastic pieces. There are still things like dice though that we have to rely on overseas manufacturing for. We have the know-how, but are unable to do it alone. That's why we need you. Angry Ogre Games' end-goal is to be able to offer our services to other indie designers to be able to have small, affordable, high-quality print-runs or prototypes done.

If you back us, you aren't just pledging for a game (or four). You're backing our dream of becoming one of America's beloved game companies. We are not a one-and-done operation. We care about what we do, that it's done right, and that you're happy with it. This is our kick-off, and we want it to be big. Now on to the games!

Sink the Titanic

Pledge for the Captain Level or add it on to another level for $20.

Sink the Titanic is a 1-2 player board game that pits you, the icebergs, against the evil Titanic. You must stop the Titanic from reaching its destination, but be careful, the captain isn't all there. The icebergs win if one crosses the Titanic's bow. The Titanic wins if it safely crosses the Atlantic. Don't let that happen!

"Bob"ball! Awesomer Edition (#@*^, it's fun!)

Pledge for the Initiate Level or add it on to another level for $25.

The official game of OverMen everywhere; "Bob"ball! offers the perfect combination of awesome and balls in a revolutionary, mind-altering format. This instant classic is a re-imagining of the longer-to-brew hit game you've heard only whispers about from another tier of consciousness.

"Bob"ball! is a game for two players. Try to save your mutant family and get them to the Pleasure Saucers before X-Day. Beware, there's only enough room for one more family. The other will be condemned to fry on Earth with the rest of the Normals.

So pull the wool over your own eyes, grab some dice, and praise "Bob" or kill him. You've never seen balls like these.

Actual Board: Awesomer Edition is printed on canvas and includes wood pieces. The Super Duper Edition is printed and applied to 18" x 18" quad-fold board and includes glass pieces.

Deep, Dark, Random Forest

Pledge for the Wanderer Level or add it on to another level for $30.

DDR Forest is a two-player constructible board game that combines strategy and luck. Collect three Relic Cards and land on your opponent’s Starting Square. Die rolls determine your movement. Cards are played to hinder your opponent’s progress. The board unfolds at random each turn allowing for a different map every game.

The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

Pledge for the Gambler Level or add it on to another level for $35.

Join in this crazy dash to hop your frog across the finish line, but don't let your opponent know which frog is yours. Hop. Bluff. Win. The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County takes place at a frog jumping contest. It relies on bluffing to make your frog finish first, bidding for turn order each round, and planning your next move. Actions include hopping one frog, flipping over frogs, moving to the top of a frogpile and more!

Pleasure Saucer Boarding Passes .......................................................... REACHED

You won't want to board the Pleasure Saucer without one. Everyone at every pledge level will receive a physical boarding pass to escape X-Day.

"Bob"ball! Soundtrack ............................................................................... REACHED
We won't say you can't play "Bob"ball! without the official soundtrack, but you'll enjoy it more! Everyone will be able to download this album by Baduino Rock for free. We'll also offer it as an add-on CD if you prefer physical music like we do.

Thank you's

Everyone who pledges will be thanked on our web page. If you come out to one of our events, we'll even thank you personally and send you off with a bit of swag.

Glow-in-the-Dark Sink the Titanic pieces for everyone ................................. $6,000

This is a goal everyone can enjoy. If we get to this goal, every Kickstarter copy of Sink the Titanic will come with glow-in-the-dark game pieces.

Upgrade all cards to linen ................................................................................. $7,000
Every copy of The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and DDR Forest will now have sweet linen cards!

3D Exclusive "Bob"ball! for everyone ............................................................. $9,000

Expansion Add-on for DDR Forest  ............................................................... $13,000
This is kind of a big deal. If you thought you'd like playing DDR Forest with one friend, now you can enjoy it with three. (friends not included) You've pushed this far and to reward you, we will move time to bring you the DDR Forest expansion that was planned for next year, INTO THIS CAMPAIGN! Before this campaign is through, you can add on this now highly anticipated expansion that not only allows more players to join in the fun but also adds in a new secret mechanic.

Killer Art ............................................................................................................ $15,000
This is huge! World renowned artist, Dirk Strangely, will design the box art for "Bob"ball! Super Duper edition!!! We will also make this available for purchase as an add-on poster to decorate your wall.

Is this all we have?
For the moment, yes. The tricky part of this process is trying to estimate where we think we could end up at the end of this campaign. Our Angry Ogre scientists seem to think that this might possibly be it. What's the only thing that beats science though? Magic. The Angry Ogre magicians believe we can go higher if our backers believe it too. Who will win the epic showdown between science and magic? Only you can determine that. Share us out to all of your friends so we can blow through these goals and make more.

We will be posting plenty of pictures and video of our games in action when we get back from our first con. We're launching this campaign to coincide with Tabletop And Boardgame Learning Expo (T.A.B.L.E.) in Dallas on March 29th and thought you'd like to see our games from there rather than staged photos. We'll be tweeting pics throughout the day so you'll want to follow us at https://twitter.com/AngryOgreGames to get an early look!

Risks and challenges

Licensing has already been taken care of so we don't need to worry about that. That being said... The portrait of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and 'SubGenius' are trademarks of The SubGenius Foundation, Inc. All rights reserved. Do not use without permission.

Because Angry Ogre Games will be handling production, we will be operating on a first-in, first-out basis. This means that the sooner you pledge, the quicker your rewards will arrive once the campaign ends. We are giving ourselves a deadline of one year from the time the project ends to have the last of your rewards in your hands. A one year deadline is our optimistic prediction of us doing REALLY well. If we do amazingly well, we do have contingency plans to bring in more hands for production so we won't miss that mark.

In manufacturing and assembly, the biggest issue is probably equipment failure. We plan to combat that by holding aside enough funds to replace equipment as needed should anything break down on us.

Advertising will be a challenge. Simply put, we are relying on you. If you like us or know someone who might, share this campaign.

We hope that if you have any questions or concerns, that you'll send us a message. The FAQ will be updated as we go based on your feedback.
