Description Edit | History

Back of the box:

"The battlefield of the future is deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks and infantry slug it out with mini-nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's the giant robot tank called the Ogre. In the game of Ogre, one player controls a force of tanks and infantry, and a command post he must defend. The other player has only one unit - but it's an Ogre. It's an even match".

This version was likely an attempt to make it a "real" board game. The mapboard was heavy cardboard stock, not paper, and the counters were stand-ups that had a plastic base. The counters didn't have strengths printed on them, the gameboard itself had a legend with that information, as well as a CRT. One d6 die was included. The rulebook was also simplified somewhat. Original price was $16.95.

Unfortunately, the Ogre record form printed on the board mis-printed the defense values of the Ogre's main and secondary guns. Both were too low by one point, leading to much weaker Ogres than the rules intended them to be.
