Default 1976 Ogre Playtest Booklet

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-and-ogre-1976

"This is a reproduction of an actual surviving Ogre playtest set from 1976. It consists of the rules (typed on typewriter no word processors yet!), the map (hand-drawn by me, with the sophisticated graphics talent for which I am NOT famous), and the game counters (also hand-made by me)."

- Steve Jackson, from the introduction (written in 2021)


Dated November 4, 1976, this is Steve's typewritten Ogre playtest document, complete with map and counters illustrated by Steve. We've scanned in the documents and assembled them as a 20-page booklet (including the covers) and the booklet is now on Kickstarter.

True, but that doesn't apply to Illuminated Manuscript. It will presumably go on sale as a PDF, but it would be nice to support the Kickstarter.

PDFs will be released on Warehouse 23 in the future. Nothing is exclusive to the project.

The next project stretch goal upgrades the Ogre booklet's cover stock. Looks like we may need to announce a new stretch goal later today.

You know what many of us would like to get our hands on Phil even as a paid addon. Make it so...hmm sounds familiar?

We are down to the last day, with the project set to close tomorrow.

The PDF of the 1976 Ogre Playtest Booklet is going to be released as a free download. The printed book (what copies we have left after Kickstarter fulfillment) will be offered on Warehouse 23.
