Ogre Miniatures Second Edition Rulebook

$68,628

In 2085 A.D., armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft speed over the battlefield. Tanks use tactical nukes. Infantry is equipped with battlesuits of incredible firepower. But they all fear one foe . . .

The Ogre.

You’ve seen the great plastic minis for Ogre. Now Steve Jackson’s award-winning Ogre Miniatures rulebook is back, with brand new photography throughout and stats for all the new units.

Ogre Miniatures Second Edition is a 64-page book that comes with a separate reference sheet, full-color die-cut templates and craters, and 24 Ogre (and Superheavy) 2-sided record cards. This is a complete rules set; you will need a die, some miniatures, and a table to play on. 

We do not plan to offer this book through regular distribution channels. Retailers can buy it through Kickstarter. Unless your retailer uses Kickstarter (tell them they should!) the only way to get this book is to support the campaign, or buy direct from SJ Games if we still have leftovers. 

The book is already written, photographed, and laid out. We can send out the PDFs shortly after the campaign ends. That’ll be in June 2018. Printing will take a little longer . . . the printed copy will be delivered in November 2018. 

PDF Only – $10. No physical rewards. A copy of Ogre Miniatures Second Edition in PDF format. Delivery June 2018. 

One Printed Copy – $35. Ogre Miniatures Second Edition. You also get the book, the support material, and the one-sheet reference Ogre Miniatures Lite, in PDF format. All PDF files available June 2018, all physical components ship November 2018.

Retailers – $50. Three copies of the book. This support level is available only to legitimate brick & mortar retailers, and yes, we check. Delivery November 2018.

Two Printed Copies – $65. A pair of Ogre Miniatures Second Edition books. Give one as a gift, or loan it to your opponent when you play. You also get the book, the support material, and the one-sheet reference Ogre Miniatures Lite, in PDF format. All PDF files available June 2018, all physical components ship November 2018.

Printed Book + Battle Box – $110. Gives you everything you need except a table. One copy of Ogre Miniatures Second Edition, plus the complete PDF set, plus the Battle Box. All PDF files available June 2018, all physical components ship November 2018.

The Battle Box includes:

  • Ogre Miniatures Set 1 & 2 in gray plastic
  • 5 double-sided Ogre Record Cards
  • 32-page Updated Ogre Designer’s Edition Rulebook
  • G1 Map – (paper) 28.5” x 33”
  • Six-sided Die
  • 11 x 17 Reference and Scenario Sheet
  • 8" x 10" Counter Sheet 

I Want It All! Printed Book + Many Minis – $150. The complete "The Printed Book + Battle Box" level PLUS four more Set 2 armies and extra Fencer and Ogre Mark IV in black. All PDF files available June 2018, all physical components ship November 2018.

The year is 2085. Advanced technology has led to enhanced weapons that are faster and deadlier than ever, but even the most seasoned soldier fears one enemy: The Ogre!

With the Printed Book + Battle Box, you’ll have everything you need to play as the devious Ogre or as the raggedy band of survivors attempting to defeat it! Set up your miniatures on a table and use either ruleset to play a hexmap wargame or a hexless minis game. You don’t have to work to gather everything you need to play the game of futuristic warfare – it’s all here for you!

You’ll receive:

  • One copy of Ogre Miniatures Second Edition 
  • The complete PDF set 
  • Ogre Miniatures Set 1 & 2 in gray plastic 
  • 5 double-sided Ogre Record Cards 32-page

Risks and challenges

Steve Jackson Games is an established game publisher with a successful track record and we have enough Kickstarter experience to deal with issues should they arise. The game has already been designed and print buying completed; now you're going to tell us how many to print and whether we can add more die-cut sheets! As we've done in the past, we will stay in touch with our backers during and after the Kickstarter, all the way through fulfillment of the rewards.
