Check out the Ogre resources at Steve Jackson Games.

The general Ogre scenario can be expanded by changing up the forces. I find it GRAT FUN for occasional play. For lots more options check out G.E.V.

In particular, here:

http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/resources/

There have been a decent number of scenarios written for the basic Ogre pieces and map.

1 - The "Ogre Scenario Book 1" PDF available on Warehouse 23 ( http://www.warehouse23.com/products/ogre-scenario-book-1 ) contains scenarios designed for the Ogre map and pieces. Some require a Superheavy Tank, but you can get the stats and rules for that in the freely downloadable Ogre Designer's Edition Rulebook on the sjgames.com website at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/products/ogre6e/ . Also, the Designer's Edition Scenarios book on that same page contains several scenarios for play on the Ogre map that are perfectly playable using only Ogre pieces.

2 - If you can find a copy of Ogre Reinforcements and/or Ogre Battlefields (out of print but not terribly rare, particularly Reinforcements), those, combined with the above free downloadable rulebook and scenario book, will give you pretty much everything in the Ogre Designer's Edition box, just in the smaller scale (and two extra maps, to boot!).

FWIW, i keep a G+ photo album where i occasionally post new scenarios specifically targeting the Ogre Pocket Edition:

https://plus.google.com/photos/104981852298046595282/albums/...

(See the photo descriptions for the scenario text.)

Additionally, i maintain (in Google Docs) a set of solo rules which automate the actions of the Ogre:

And, in that same GDrive folder, you can find various shared resources, e.g. SVG components for creating your own Ogre map variants in the Pocket Edition style (but scaled up to whatever size you want - i've got one scaled to the 6th Edition scale, but 1 inch hexes also work well with the Pocket Edition):

Happy Ogring!

For additional counters, don't forget the free PDF of the Classic Counters: http://www.warehouse23.com/products/ogre-classic-counters-1. Print the PDF at a scale just shy of 50%, and you have counters for lots of unit types, laser towers, etc that match the size and artwork of the Pocket Edition.

I see you started writing it up in standard format (in the google drive folder). Did you ever complete the write up?

You'll have to be more specific - which one?

If you mean the "Over-reaction" scenario (from a different album), no, i have not finished a write-up because my typing time/day is currently very limited due to nerve damage in my left hand (am currently on medical leave for that, which is what gives me so much time to play Ogre ). AFAIR, none of the scenarios in that particular (Pocket Edition) album have write-ups.
