Presumably most of you reading this forum are veterans to Ogre, but you may know someone who have played Ogre with you and enjoyed it, but missed out on the ODE Kickstarter. Or perhaps you want to give a holiday gift of Ogre to someone you hope to lure into addiction enthrall with the joy of the game. For all of those individuals, we now have a Starter Bundle on our latest Kickstarter. Ogre Sixth Edition, one box of Ogre Miniatures Set 1, and a set of dice, all for $75. Check it out:

Momentary exuberation... followed by disappointment. Shipping really, really kills these deals.

Shipping is tough. This has become a problem with most Kickstarters.

That being said, the deal is discounted to the point that even with the estimated shipping, it is only $9 more than retail, which doesn't include the cost of shipping from W23. So it's still a good deal . . . at least here in the States.

Shipping is definitely a bug-a-boo. No matter where you buy from.

Shipping rates are hurting a lot of people these days.

I'm waiting for Ogre Minis to come into my FLGS, otherwise I'm doubling the list price to buy on Kickstarter.

How about getting your FLGS to pledge for the $90/6 box retailer package? That is what I did.

--Edit--

I just had another idea. Offer to pre-purchase from your FLGS. Maybe they will let you lock in at $30. You get $40 for $30 and no freight. The store will get 5 sets worth $200 for $60 + shipping (they get the 90 by adding your $30 in), and the Kickstarter campaign gets more $ than it would have gotten if you had pledged individually.

Believe me, they already do this, and quite a lot!

That's how I got me ODE!

I only backed on Kickstarter to get the extras!

Is the orange fold-out map identical to the designer's edition? ...and will there be any way to just get extra separate map boards? Was bummed I missed the extra map packs that were available with the designer's edition.

Yes, that board is identical to the one in ODE. And there are no plans to sell it separately at this time.
