OGRE - my collection
I have the original OGRE game , still in its tattered plastic bag. Very cool. Published 1977 and sold for $2.95 USD but I think It cost me $7.50 NZD. Its only a second edition and second printing but still its a bit of gaming history. The counters are tiny and the board never sat flat but its a terrific game. I also picked up the Deluxe Ogre with the metal minis (which were using todays standards very average) but it did have a large printed board with large hexes. The Ogre book was almost a compulsory purchase with heaps of articles, scenarios and general all round Ogre goodness. Hence my excitement around the Designers Edition coming put in November 2012. Yeah.
