Default Munchkin Ogre?

Well since we now have card driven Ogre game I'd thought I'd ask if there was ever an Ogre Munchkin...kinds like Ogre Gurps? Thoughts??

It was floated as an April Fool's joke a number of years ago, and IIRC some stuff from Ogre made its way into Star Munchkin, but last I'd heard the official response was "Please stop asking, it was just a joke."

I do think there's a good bit of potential there, though...Chassis, Treads, Sensors replace armor, footgear, and headgear. Factions [PEF / NAC / Nihon / etc] and marks/designations [Mk.III, Mk.V, Fencer, Vulcan could be a straight drop-in replacement for Dwarf] as races and classes. Conventional units make up the bulk of the monsters [including the Level 1 Cardboard Command Post].

The biggest problems are going to be how narrow the subject material is [non-licensed Munchkin sets are usually love letters to an entire genre], filling out a full set of decks with distinct cards, making the one-shots / 0-hand items interesting, and preserving the series' signature humor.

...no, I haven't put way too much thought into this over the last few months, why do you ask?

I think it can be made as a booster set for space munchkin or for the post Apocalypse munchkin.

I know almost all the fans would buy it, specially if it includes a Munchkin OGRE, Command Post and maybe a few other units in a single card. With Munchkin like stats of course.

This topic has come up on occasion, and as has correctly been stated, SJGames will not be going down this rabbit hole.

With that said, please find attached my offerings on the theme well before I had any direct relationship with the company. Please enjoy them for what they are - entertaining ideas that will not show up on anything official. Feel free to populate some blank cards with these if you really have an urge to add them to your game.

Have fun!

Sorry, sorry...that wasn't an annoyed "Why are you asking about this?", it was a cheeky, self-deprecating crack about the thought I've put into it too.
