What You Get In The Box

We did the happy dance when a full preview set of the new Ogre arrived this week. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves:


Above: contents of the Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter box. Maybe time to call your realtor?



Above: contents of the Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter box, plus one of each sponsored sheet


The pictures above don't include the Read Me First, or Pocket Ogre (Kickstarter supporters at $150 and above will receive this. It'll also be available separately).

The conference table is approx. 4 feet wide and 15 feet long. (Great for playing games!)


A Game System Of Truly Epic Proportions

For the Kickstarter box:

- Box size: 24 by 20 by 5.8 inches
- Box weight: 25.2 pounds
- Maps laid out: 31 square feet
- Maps laid out end-to-end: 13.8 feet long
- Counter sheets laid out unpunched: 29.9 square feet
- No. of counter sheets: 38
- No. of 2-D counters: 1,100
- No. of 3-D counters: 104
- Total no. of counters: 1,204

We've mentioned that this should retail at around $400 (but MSRP will still be only $100). We hope now you can see why. . .

In case you're wondering about the sponsored sheets, these aren't in Kickstarter or retail copies of Ogre Designer's Edition. They're a separate purchase.

As a side follow up, is the delivery date still on track for around the Sep-Oct time frame this year?

I am wishing that I had ordered. I want it. If anyone has an extra copy they are interested in selling let me know.

Is it worth $400 to you?

Last official word is that there are a few copies unspoken for. They will not include the KS extras, but they will only cost $100. I'd talk to your FLGS immediately and get them to order it. The KS extras are very nice, but 98% of the play value will be in the $100 retail version.

Also, I'd bet there will be some KS-bundles for sale after the game ships. Most other KS games with supporter-specific promo items have turned up online or at flea markets and auctions I've attended. Either people changed their mind or they are speculating. Keep your eyes open and have your money ready and you can probably get one.

For those looking for this, Miniature Market is still selling pre-orders for $60. It's the retail copy (missing a few sheets of counters), but it's where I placed my order.

Just curious, did they commit to a shipping charge when they accepted a $60 pre-order? Seems pretty tight...

Shipping charge to the customer? I dunno, I do local pickup. I imagine the majority of people will do a $100 order to get free shipping.

$60 is a 40% discount on MSRP which is about normal for Miniature Market/CoolstuffInc.

I guess I could get three and make them into a shelf for my Ogre minis...
