January 15, 2019: State Of The Ogreverse, 2019

How do you follow an Ogre-sized 40th Anniversary celebration? With an even bigger 41st year bash! Ogre had a fantastic year in 2018, completing a number of projects and many great Kickstarter campaigns.

We began the year with publication of our inaugural Ogrezine, a digital collection of fan-submitted art and articles for Ogre. This was met with enthusiastic appreciation by*fans everywhere. So much so, that we decided to do it again, running a Kickstarter for Ogrezine II later in the year. We are currently releasing those submissions on our site and will be publishing it in its entirety this March.

As most of you know, Ogre Designer's Edition was a massive Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 that started Ogre on its current renaissance. That campaign generated a truckload of stretch goals and promises that we have been slowly completing ever since. 2018 was the year when we completed two of the very few remaining, and biggest, objectives: Ogre Miniatures, Second Edition and Battlefields.

Ogre Miniatures has needed an overhaul for years, having had digital updates published on occasion but no complete rendering of the new material under one cover. As promised in the Ogre Designer's Edition campaign, we finally completed that task, releasing Ogre Miniatures, Second Edition with complete rules, new photos, and lots of new accessories, useful to both miniature and boardgame fans alike.

Speaking of Ogre Miniatures, the Battle Box and Many Minis sets of miniatures were delivered to fans last year to positive acclaim. We packaged Battle Box as a complete game in itself, with a map, rulebook, and miniatures. Naturally, some of you still wanted more, so we took Battle Box and incorporated it into the Many Minis boxed set, delivering an obscene amount of Ogre miniatures in one package. We successfully avoided some of the shipping pitfalls that plagued us with Ogre Miniatures Set 1, so fans everywhere got to contemplate a mountain of plastic miniatures on their gaming tables. Don't blame us if you get cramps painting them all!

At the end of the year was our biggest Ogre Kickstarter since 2012: the Battlefields expansion set for Ogre. Ending as the fifth most backed campaign of the 20 Kickstarters we've run, Battlefields was an unqualified success, showing that love for Ogre is very much alive and well. Over the campaign, the set grew from having just three sheets of counters and 3-D constructs to 12 full sheets! The maps were expanded and improved, and lots of additional material was added to the set. Phil is just back from China, where he got "hands on" organizing the production of this beautiful set.

With Ogre Miniatures, Second Edition released and Battlefields underway, all of the Ogre-related stretch goals from 2012 have been completed. The sole remaining goal from that campaign is the new edition of Car Wars, and as many of you know, we are nearing completion of that task as well. This means Ogre can concentrate on looking forward, with new products and ideas.

Ironically, one of the ways we tried looking forward last year was to refurbish a well-loved idea from the past. The story and scenario rules for Iron Mountain holds a treasured place in many fans' hearts. A challenge has always been in making the map to play the game. Through the Ogrezine II and Battlefields Kickstarters, we are releasing counters for the scenario &ndash; and, more important, a beautiful 24"x24" playmat. This stunning map will allow players to play the scenario with their miniatures in 3-D glory. The use of playmats for Ogre started out as a small experiment for us, but has grown into four completely new, geomorphing maps (M1, M3, M4, and M5), representing the first new maps in over a decade for the game. I think it is safe to say you can expect to see more of the playmat idea.

We also brought back GURPS Ogre and The Ogre Book as print editions, leveraging the POD capabilities available to us. We will be releasing Ogre Scenario Books 1-3 and Ogrezine I & II in POD as well. Plus, we've released a large amount of free material on our site. Obviously, we are publishing the various Ogrezine II submissions, but PDFs of all six G and S maps for the game are available for download, as well as copies of the rules, reference cheat sheets, a tournament rule set, and more.

I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge our failures of the past year. Delivery of Ogre Miniatures Set 1 to our international fans was a disaster, taking months longer than it should and stretching into 2018. As alluded to previously, we learned a lot from that fiasco, and have avoided repeating our errors. Also, our promise of producing Nightfall once again got pushed back due to the demands of the other Ogre releases. I'm turning the flame up on that project this year.

Looking forward, we have more exciting Ogre projects brewing. Our iconic Pocket Box games will be making a return, and included on the list of titles for release are Ogre, G.E.V., and Battlesuit. These, and many other non-Ogre titles, will be straight reprints of the old games for those who have lost or destroyed their copies through play.

We've promised a Kickstarter for the monstrous Ogre Mark VI and Doppelsoldner miniatures. We hope to proceed with that in the coming year and we're investigating the various Combine units as possible sets, too. (Yes, I know everyone wants a pile of Mark I and Mark II Ogres!) Due to the success of Ogrezine and Battlefields, reprises of both of those campaigns are under discussion, possibly resulting in Ogrezine III (keep sending me your submissions!) and/or another expansion set (Battlefields 2?) for Ogre. Would brand new, mounted G4 and S4 maps*be of interest to anyone?

Finally, we are looking at hosting our own mini-con here in Austin this April. Although there will be far more than Ogre being played, rest assured that the mighty tank will be out on more than one table over the weekend! I anticipate attending myself and am looking forward to meeting many of you.

Ogre rolls on, in no small part due to the support that it receives from all of you, its fans. I am humbled to be the editor and your servant to the game. Thank you! 2018 was a great year for Ogre, and 2019 is off to a wonderful start. I have all sorts of ideas that I'm looking forward to exploring within the world of Ogre; I'm excited to see where we end up!

January 9, 2019: March 2019 Release: Cthulhu D6 Dice Set

Five years ago, we created the steel tool for a 19mm six-sided die where we replaced the "ones" face with a Cthulhu icon. We sold these dice online and handed them out at shows. But for most, this d6 design was an unknown item. Out of the world's population of dice fans, only a fraction of a percent even knew that this design existed.

Last fall, at our special retailer event in Austin, a few of the attendees saw the die for the first time .*.*. and they wanted it. "This," we were told, "is something that I want to sell in my store." We sold a few unpackaged dice that day, and we started thinking about how best to take the die into distribution.

Coming in March, the Cthulhu D6 Dice Set*is a package of six big 19mm dice. Every package is identical and includes two black pearlized, two green pearlized, and two purple pearlized six-sided dice. You can use these with almost any game!

This is a fantastic series by Artemis Entreri. Not only did they design rations (or in some cases, full meals) for fantasy races, they cooked them, laid them out in nice presentations. took photos, and at least tried to eat them* on game night. This is the kind of thing that would belong in a glossy game magazine, if (sigh) we still had those. But you can still click and enjoy. Thank you, Artemis!

I particularly like the all-black drow meal. I would eat that, preferably with fine antique silver from black china.

We have a lot to look forward to in 2019 and a lot of work to get done to make it all happen. But today, we're going to relax and store up some mana for the next 364 days. We hope you're all able to do the same. No matter how 2018 was for you, we wish you a better year to come.

SJ Games and Warehouse 23 will reopen tomorrow.

December 31, 2018: Our Own Convention!

Our own convention in Austin! This will be a small event, maybe as small as 200 people, so save the dates and stay tuned. We'll do Ogre, Car Wars, Fantasy Trip, Munchkin of course, and no doubt other things. There will be a painting contest for Ogre minis. Andrew, Phil, and I will all be there &ndash; in fact, almost all our staff will be present, including some from out of town.

The working name is FnordCon. We have an idea for a logo, but since it's vacation time, the production department is out, so you'll have to imagine.

This will not be very unlike the Ogre launch party that we did five years ago, though it will be in a different space.

Look for registration info and more before very long. We may even do a surrrrrvey to find out what you'd like before we make final plans.

December 30, 2018: Hong Kong!

Today I set out on the long journey to Hong Kong, where I'll meet with our GPI rep, David, for a series of factory visits in China. Why are David and I starting 2019 at the factory? For a few very good reasons, including:
  • Final checks on The Fantasy Trip project before it ships. The game is in final assembly and will be on the water before the end of this month, which puts Kickstarter fulfillment starting in late February or early January.
  • Pocket Box discussions. As mentioned last month, we're working on a project to create reproductions of several classic eighties Pocket Box games like Car Wars, Illuminati, and Ogre. This trip gives us one last face-to-face review of the plan before we launch the Kickstarter campaign in mid-January.
  • Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 project review, which includes more than just the core game.
  • Something big that we're not yet ready to discuss .*.*. but that we have hinted at more than once. What is it? Be sure to follow Steve Jackson Games on Facebook, Twitter, and Kickstarter so that you don't miss out on what is going to be one of the most complicated game accessory projects we've ever attempted. Wish us luck!

In addition to factory visits, there will also be a little time for fun. As I try to do each time, I have booked an extra day in Hong Kong so that I can get out and enjoy the city. Hong Kong = my favorite place in the world, and I can never get enough time exploring its shops, parks, and sites.

December 28, 2018: Fun With Playmats

We've been offering a few different playmat designs over the last few years (the latest Ogre playmats are now on Kickstarter, with the project closing today), and we're far from the only game publisher selling playmats to support gameplay. Over the holidays, I got lucky enough to add several of Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Imperial Assault playmats to my collection. (Now I'm down to needing time to play the game so I can truly enjoy these new mats.)

If you're unfamiliar with the different Imperial Assault playmats, each is designed for the game's skirmish mode and offers up a new battlefield. If you've not given Imperial Assault a try, I suggest that you find a friend who owns it and give it a shot. Imperial Assault is an evolution of the Doom and Descent games (both of which were first designed by Munchkin CCG co-designer Kevin Wilson), and can best be described as a Star Wars dungeon-crawl game. And yeah, the game includes campaign play and there are a lot of miniatures and missions available for it.

If you've never used playmats in your games, you've been missing out! Cloth mats, with rubber backing, provide a smooth surface and &ndash;*in the case of these Imperial Assault mats (as well as the Ogre playmats) &ndash;*serve as the gameboard. Playmats only work if you have a large enough table, but if you do, they make game setup a little quicker .*.*. and they look fabulous!

December 27, 2018: Kickstarter: Ogre Battlefields Project Closes Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, the Ogre Battlefields project comes to a close, and we start to finalize the files for publication. The majority of the work is already completed; next week, we will make our final checks/corrections and then send the files to our partners at GPI (possibly as soon as the second week of January). They'll start the work of preparing the first proofs, but we're unlikely to see the tooling samples until early March (after the factory's Chinese New Year break). If all continues as scheduled, we'll deliver the Kickstarter rewards in July, on schedule and as promised in the campaign.

So, this is your last chance*to back the Kickstarter before it closes. Next month, once our team has recovered from the holiday break, we'll open the BackerKit survey and preorders, so don't stress too much if you miss out on joining in the project before it closes; there are no Kickstarter exclusives.

Thanks for the support (all stretch goals are unlocked!), and we'll see you next year for new Ogre projects!

NOTE: In addition to the new gameboards and die-cut counters, the Ogre Battlefields campaign is also offering Ogre Playmat M4 and M5, two completely new designs! Ogre Playmat M1, M2, and M3 are also being offered .*.*. in case you missed out on the earlier releases of those two playmats.

It's been an exciting time for fans of The Fantasy Trip! Following a successful Kickstarter earlier this year (and a couple issues of Pyramid with TFT adventures and support), we're now proud to present the first full TFT adventure supplement in decades: The Chaos Triads.

Written by Yours Truly (longtime Pyramid editor Steven Marsh), The Chaos Triads sets the heroes on a quest where the situation has gotten more complicated than anyone knows, and the edges of life and death are blurring almost as much as reality itself. This adventure includes new ready-to-print counters and megahex tiles, a new monstrous threat that pushes the boundaries of the possible, and (of course) maps to make the dungeon come alive.

And the format is digital, so you could be reading it within minutes! Get your copy of The Chaos Triads today, thanks to Warehouse 23!
