Ogre Reinforcements contains three counter sheets with the following units:

Sheet 1
  • Ogre Mark III (PE) (x2)
  • Ogre Mark V (PE)
  • Command Post (Combine)
  • Mobile Command Post (Combine)
  • Town / Damaged Town Overlay (x8)
  • Ridge / Clear Overlay (x7)
  • Two-hex Crater / Two-hex Clear Overlay

Sheet 2
  • Light GEV (PE) (x4)
  • Light Tank (PE) (x4)
  • GEV-PC (PE) (x3)
  • Superheavy Tank (PE) (x2)
  • Mobile Howitzer (PE) (x2)
  • Light GEV (Combine) (x4)
  • Light Tank (Combine) (x4)
  • GEV-PC (Combine) (x3)
  • Superheavy Tank (Combine) (x2)
  • Mobile Howitzer (Combine) (x2)
  • Howitzer (Combine) (x2)
  • GEV (Combine) (x4)
  • Missile Tank (Combine) (x4)
  • Heavy Tank (Combine) (x4)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x6)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x6)
  • Ridge / Clear Overlay (x9)

There are two copies of Sheet 2 per package.

When you merge Ogre Reinforcements with Ogre 6e, as is clearly intended, you end up with precisely equal forces, except that the Combine force has two more GEVs than the PE force.

Ogre Pocket Edition

This is the reproduction of the Ogre 1e baggie microgame [albeit with updated rules] that was released in conjunction with Ogre Designer's Edition in 2012 / 2013. It is not to be confused with the Ogre 3e reproduction Pocket Box released in 2019 as part of the "Pocket Box Games of the 80's" Kickstarter campaign.

Two identical chipboard die-cut counter sheets, each with the following units:
  • Heavy Tank (PE) (x5)
  • GEV (PE) (x5)
  • Missile Tank (PE) (x4)
  • Howitzer (PE) (x4)
  • Heavy Tank (Combine) (x5)
  • GEV (Combine) (x7)
  • Missile Tank (Combine) (x5)
  • Howitzer (Combine) (x2)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x7)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x4)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x5)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x3)
  • Mobile Command Post (D0) (Light Gray)
  • Mobile Command Post (D0) (PE)
  • Mobile Command Post (D1) (Light Gray)
  • Mobile Command Post (D1) (PE)
  • Mobile Command Post (D2) (PE)
  • Command Post (D1 / D2) (PE)
  • Command Post (D0) (Combine / PE) (x2)
  • Ogre Mark III (PE / Dark Gray) (x2)
  • Ogre Mark III (Combine / Light Gray) (x2)
  • Ogre Mark V (PE / Dark Gray)
  • Ogre Mark V (Combine / Light Gray)
All Combine units are white text on a black background.
All PE units are black text on a white background.
Command Posts and Ogres are also supplied in Light Gray (with black print) and Dark Gray (with white print), for neutral factions and multipolar scenarios.
The Light Gray units are very difficult to distinguish from PE units in isolation, once punched.

Interestingly, the Ogre Pocket Edition diecut counters are a fraction of a millimeter smaller than the 2019 reproduction diecuts. The printing is the same size, though.

I just recently rebagged my Pocket Edition Counters using the divisions in this list.
I also set up a bag containing the standard Ogres and CPs for easy access when playing.
  • Command Post (D0) (Combine / PE) (x2)
  • Ogre Mark III (PE / Dark Gray)
  • Ogre Mark III (Combine / Light Gray)
  • Ogre Mark V (PE / Dark Gray)
  • Ogre Mark V (Combine / Light Gray)

Shockwave (1984)

The 1984 bagged edition of Shockwave included 2 sheets of thin cardboard, cut-it-yourself counters:

Sheet 1
  • LGEV (PE) (x16)
  • Missile Crawler (PE) (x4)
  • Crawler (No Missile) (PE) (x4)
  • Superheavy Tank (D4) (PE) (x8)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Marine Platoon (PE) (x4)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Marine Platoon (PE) (x8)
  • Truck (D0) (PE) (x12)
  • Hovertruck (D1) (PE) (x12)
  • GEV-PC (PE) (x10)
  • Reactor / "Building" (60 SP) (PE) (x2)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (20 SP) (PE) (x4)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (30 SP) (PE) (x4)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (40 SP) (PE) (x4)
  • Laser Tower / "Building" (20 SP) (PE) (x4)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (10 SP) (PE) (x3)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (20 SP) (PE) (x3)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (30 SP) (PE) (x3)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (60 SP) (PE) (x2)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (70 SP) (PE)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (80 SP) (PE)
  • "Bridge Out" / "Rubble" (White with red text / Gray with black text) (x3)

Sheet 2
  • LGEV (Combine) (x16)
  • Missile Crawler (Combine) (x4)
  • Crawler (No Missile) (Combine) (x4)
  • Superheavy Tank (D4) (Combine) (x8)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Marine Platoon (Combine) (x4)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Marine Platoon (Combine) (x8)
  • Hovertruck (D1) (Combine) (x4)
  • GEV-PC (Combine) (x10)
  • Reactor / "Building" (60 SP) (Combine)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (20 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (30 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Laser Turret / "Building" (40 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Laser Tower / "Building" (20 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (10 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (20 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Admin Building / "Building" (30 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (60 SP) (Combine) (x2)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (70 SP) (Combine)
  • Strongpoint / "Building" (80 SP) (Combine)
  • Missile (White with red text / White with black text)
  • "Bridge Out" / "Rubble" (White with red text / Gray with black text) (x5)
  • Crater / "Rubble" (White with red-black line art / Gray with black text) (x29)

The 2019 reproduction of Shockwave (1984) included an extra copy of Sheet 1, most likely due to there being a duplicate Sheet 1 from Ogre Reinforcement Pack (1987) in the copy they were using for reference.

Interestingly, the die-cut versions of the counters reflect this error, spreading the counters for Sheet1, Sheet 2, and the extra Sheet 1 over multiple die-cut sheets, mixed in such a way that the counters from the extra Sheet 1 are spread over multiple die-cut countersheets and not neatly extricable from the set.

The 2019 reproduction of Ogre Reinforcement Pack (1987) duplicates this error, which tells us that the reference copy of Shockwave (1984) had an extra counter sheet first, then the die-cut counter sheets were laid out using the thin countersheets in the reference copy as a reference, and that the Ogre Reinforcement Pack reproduction was developed later by simply duplicating the component documents that had already been generated for the smaller standalone reproduction sets, reflecting the same error.

The 1987 bagged edition of Ogre Reinforcement Pack contains four counter sheets:
  • Ogre Pocket Box
  • GEV Pocket Box
  • Shockwave (1984) Sheet 1
  • Shockwave (1984) Sheet 2

The 2019 reproduction of this set includes an extra copy of Shockwave (1984) Sheet 1, as well as duplicates of the die-cut chipboard counter sheets from the 2019 reproductions of Ogre Pocket Box, GEV Pocket Box, and Shockwave (1984).

40 Years of Ogre

"40 Years of Ogre" was a booklet, first published in GTM Magazine, that contained complete Ogre game rules, a modified version of the Orange map, and sufficient components to play a new scenario: "Bad Timing." The counters were cut-it-yourself thin cardboard counters, but followed the art style of O6e rather than the older pocket boxes. The counters were slightly less than half the size of the O6e-scale counters.

The following counters were included:
  • Ogre Mark III (Combine) (2D top-down view - 1 11/16" long)
  • Command Post (PE) (2D top-down view - 10/16" across) (x3)
  • Heavy Tank (PE) (x6)
  • GEV (PE) (x6)
  • Missile Tank (PE) (x6)
  • Howitzer (PE) (x3)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x6)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x6)

1976 Ogre Playtest Booklet

The booklet contains two slightly inconsistent counter sets. The more formal one is a formal counter list on the last page of the booklet, next to an identical grid of counters ready for cutting:

Black /w white text (Combine)
  • Command Post
  • Ogre Mark V
  • Ogre Mark III (x2)

White /w black text (PE)
  • Command Post
  • Ogre Mark V
  • Ogre Mark III (x2)
  • Howitzer (x4)
  • Heavy Tank (x8)
  • Missile Tank (x8)
  • GEV (M4-4) (x10)
  • 3-strength Infantry Platoon (x10)
  • 2-strength Infantry Platoon (x4)
  • 1-strength Infantry Platoon (x4)

All counters are single-sided.

The centerspread of the booklet is a photo showing an apparently full set of counters laid out next to the map. It has minor differences from the listing above.
  • It shows only 7 Missile Tanks.
  • It shows 5 2-strength Infantry Platoons
  • It shows 6 1-strength Infantry Platoons
  • It also shows 60 numbered counters, ten each labeled 1 through 6. These are intended to be drawn from a cup in the place of a dieroll, allowing the game to be tested with a guarantee that identical amounts of each possible D6 dieroll will turn up over time. [This was not an uncommon practice in the 70's, when the quality of dice that a small game company could include in a game might be very poor, and polyhedral dice might be unavailable altogether.]

Ogre / GEV (2000)

This micro-scale edition was released in a plastic VHS box with a thin cardboard slipcover, and included both Ogre and GEV. The version of Ogre in this box was marked as 5e. The Ogre and GEV maps were printed on a single piece of glossy paper. The rulebooks were bound together but not merged - the front cover of GEV was on the back cover, upside down, from the Ogre front cover.

The counter sheets, however, were merged. Ogre / GEV (2000) included three identical copies of the following sheet of thin cardboard, cut-it-yourself counters, which contained the counters for both Ogre and GEV.
  • Heavy Tank (PE) (x6)
  • GEV (PE) (x11)
  • Missile Tank (PE) (x6)
  • Howitzer (PE) (x3)
  • Light Tank (PE) (x6)
  • Mobile Howitzer (PE) (x3)
  • Heavy Tank (Combine) (x6)
  • GEV (Combine) (x11)
  • Missile Tank (Combine) (x6)
  • Howitzer (Combine) (x3)
  • Light Tank (Combine) (x6)
  • Mobile Howitzer (Combine) (x3)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x7)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (PE) (x6)
  • 3-strength / 2-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x7)
  • 2-strength / 1-strength Infantry Platoon (Combine) (x6)
  • Command Post Alpha (PE)
  • Command Post Beta (PE)
  • Command Post Gamma (PE)
  • Command Post Alpha (Combine)
  • Command Post Beta (Combine)
  • Command Post Gamma (Combine)
  • Ogre Mark V / Ogre Mark IV (PE)
  • Ogre Mark III / Ogre Mark II (PE)
  • Ogre Mark V / Ogre Mark IV (Combine)
  • Ogre Mark III / Ogre Mark II (Combine)
  • Ogre Mark V / Ogre Mark IV (White text on red)
  • Ogre Mark III / Ogre Mark II (White text on red)
  • Ogre Mark V / Ogre Mark IV (Red text on white)
  • Ogre Mark III / Ogre Mark II (Red text on white)
  • Train (PE M0-1 / PE M2-3)
  • Train (PE M4-5 / PE M6-7)
