Default Ogre Playmat M1 Preorders at Warehouse 23

Ogre fans, we've opened preorders for a new map . . . printed on a 24" x 24" playmat! Once we hit 100 preorders, we will click the "order these" button and start the wheels. The design is ready, now we need to make sure that the demand is there.

It looks like it might...does it Geomorph with the others?

The best way to pull that off: Overlays from Ogre Sixth Edition or the Ogre Designer's Edition. The edges are not perfect fits, but the hex sizes are the same and a few overlays will work wonders.

Do the original Ogre map in this format, or one in the same style, and I will buy 4 of them.

well, that's nifty. Our first new map in ages :-)

Obviously, it isn't Geomorphic (easily addressed with overlays), but is the thickness similar to the ODE maps?

Definitely not exact. Easier: Use two of the playmats with overlays.

Yeah, I could see that being cleaner.

I'm down for one already, I might do a second one later. If I decide to do a second order, is there a way to consolidate for shipping?

Best way is to email orders@sjgames.com when you place the second order. It's doable but we have to do some behind the scenes stuff.

Pulled out a map, and yeah, now I feel dumb. The hex counts aren't the same, the road spacing isn't the same, etc.

Follow-up question: If these take off, is there any interest in making ones that geomorph specifically with M-coded maps?

Man, this hits at just the wrong time in terms of finances ...

But I'm going to guess those 100 orders will fill up quickly.
