Default New G.E.V. Edition?

So, I'm an Ogre Fan from way back. It was actually the first wargame I every played, I bought a copy of the Metagaming edition from an ad in Galaxy magazine back in 1977. But I got out of wargaming in general after I got married, my wife is more into German-style board games. I only heard about the Ogre Kickstarter after it was all over, still kicking myself over that.

Over the last couple of years my kids have really gotten into games, and a couple of months ago I introduced them to Ogre through my old copy of Ogre/G.E.V. in the VCR box that was rattling around in the game cupboard. (Which has Shockwave, Battlefields, and Reinforcements in it as well. Like I said, I'm a fan from way back.) So now it has turned into my oldest's favorite game, we're playing it all the time. I know he would go bananas for one of the new mega editions, and Christmas is coming up.

Which, to make a long story tedious, brings me to my question: Will there be a corresponding new edition of G.E.V. to match Ogre 6th Edition? If not, I will probably buy a copy of Ogre DE off of Amazon and give it to my son for Christmas. They aren't cheap, but they can be had. If there will be one, then I will hold off, buy a copy of Ogre 6th and give it to him for his birthday in April and then buy him a copy of the new G.E.V. edition when it becomes available in the future. Much cheaper, and I get two presents out of his obsession instead of one.

So, anyone on SJ staff want to offer up some prognostication to help Dad make some gift decisions?

You can buy the ODE maps and counters now from Warehouse 23, so you could get the Ogre 6th when it hits stores, and then add the ODE parts afterwards.

It really depends on sales of the upcoming Ogre titles. It is too early for us to say at this time whether or not there will be such a release.

For what it's worth I asked my FLGS today to pre-order me Ogre 6e and the Reinforcement Pack when they become available.

Well, ODE it is then! Time to start scouring Amazon and EBay. Thanks for the response.

You can find them for as little as $100-120. $150 is fairly common. Plus some online stores still have them in stock.

Just so you know what you're getting, any game listed as a "Kickstarter" version (as opposed to "retail" version) will have an additional 6 sheets of counters, units and overlays, including some that can't be found in the retail version. Note: none of the "exclusive" counters are required to fully enjoy Ogre Designer's Edition; they just add a little more to the game. Either the KS version or the retail version may also come with the "ACD sheet", but that can be bought here as well (and again, just extras).

Actually, I just picked up a copy of the retail ODE, NIB, on BGG for $89 + shipping. Very stoked. My son is going to have a stroke on Christmas morning. :-) Thanks for all the input!

That's a really good price, but as many of us have experienced, shipping on this one will nail you.

Being the type of guy I am, I'd try and figure a way out to hide the huge ODE gift box to your son, and instead give him a Pocket Edition on Christmas, with some clue embedded as to how to find his "other" real gift.
