Default Welcome!

Welcome to the Ogre forum!

Most of us want to find more folks with whom to play Ogre. As a start on that, we recommend the Gamer Finder (which is a forum here on the SJG forums). At the top of that is a link to the SJG Gamer Finder database. Add your details there and look for other players near you.

And now, some (potentially) useful links:

--------------------------------------------

Why a Welcome thread? After finding myself welcoming new people and providing links to resources in the middle of two different threads in the last week or so, I chatted with Drew (the esteemed Ogre Line Manager) about the idea of a Welcome thread. He thought that was a good idea, so here it is. I thought I'd use it both to welcome new folks and to get (hopefully) useful links into one place.



******************************************

Drew here . . . please enjoy this thread and again, a hearty welcome to all new players! I would like to keep this thread relatively clean, so that months and years from now new players aren't wading through scores of posts to see if there is anything that they truly need. To that end, I will be pruning frequently and would encourage all to limit their posts to that which would truly be of value to all new players. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks, Buzzardo.

As mentioned, welcome to the Ogreverse! There is a lot to explore and enjoy here, and many passionate fans with whom to discuss the finer point of the game.

I will update this thread as needed. Another thread that is of great value in addition to the above is the Ogre Tools thread. Please feel free to try them out!

Again, welcome to the nuclear battlefront!

Drew

This was posted over on BGG, and it was requested to be posted here as well:

Welcome to the Last War!

Congratulations on buying Ogre, arguably the best war-game made for over 40 years! Back in 2012 there was a monstrous Kickstarter campaign, where Ogre Designer's Edition was forged. This was the most comprehensive set of rules, units, Ogres and game pieces ever designed for the game. Although these sets have long sold out, Ogre Sixth Edition proudly carries on the Ogre line.

Despite missing out on the ODE Kickstarter, you can get virtually everything you "missed" through currently available options. First, I recommend you read this article, "Closing the Gap".

It describes how to bring Ogre Sixth Edition virtually on par with the original Ogre Designer's Edition. Some additional links include the following:

Ogre Sixth Edition (presumably you have that!)
Ogre Reinforcements
Giant Battlefield Map set
Sponsored Counter Sheets

Don't forget the free Ogre Stream Overlays pdf

Finally, there are a number of Scenario Books that are available to everyone as pdfs through W23:

Scenario Book 1
Scenario Book 2
Scenario Book 3

There is a lot of other Ogre material on W23 as well which should include the imminent release of Ogre Miniatures Set 1. Additionally, the Kickstarter for Ogre Miniatures Set 2 is scheduled to launch on November 13 . . .

If you haven't already, sign up for "Ogre News". That way, you won't miss a thing re: Ogre going forward. You can find the subscription link here.

Finally, if digital gaming is more your thing, check out the Ogre Video Game on Steam. It is a faithful rendition of the game by Auroch Digital.

Welcome to the battlefield!

Drew
