Straight reprint. As close to the original as possible (plastic Pocket Box is the biggest difference, and we will add a reproduction copyright notice).

NOTE: These will be near-identical reproductions of the originals* -- get ready to cut counters! -- and are intended as replacements for those of you who lived through "my mom threw my games out after high school" and have never quite forgiven her for tossing your copy of Necromancer.
Any chance the upcoming Ogre and GEV counters sheets could be cut with the die you used to cut the counters for Pocket Ogre a few years back? I'd love to have a small version of GEV to go with my Pocket Ogre.

A
lso, what maps will you be reprinting: the full-color maps on glossy paper or the B&W (Ogre) and Zip-a-Tone (GEV) maps on standard paper?

That's not the purpose of this project. These are reproductions, as close to the originals as possible (the plastic box is the biggest change), and are not new editions. You will have to cut out the counters.

We're going to party like it's 1982 :-)

In keeping with the stated goal of replacing old, lost favorites, I'd love to see the following, in order of desire:

GEV
OGRE
Illuminati
Car Wars
Shockwave
Battlefields.

Il end up getting most, if not all of whatever you reprint, but the above are my top priorities.

Yes to all. My collection of microgames is on display, and I'd love play copies.

As per over there if GEV is its own box as it was back in the day, I'm cool with that and I'll buy multiples.

Also PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE One Page Bulge. That is literally the only WWII game I want to replay or really even play at all.

I wonder how well these might fit together in a Battle Box?

You could fit quite a few Pocket Boxes inside a Battle Box, but where are you going to put all the Ogre stuff from the Battle Box to make room?
