Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter

Keeping with the Kickstarter theme, some of us on the official Ogre email list were given the word that the Ogre Deluxe Edition game is now on Kickstarter!

This is one gorgeous-looking game. Thick, chipboard counters, three-dimensional cardboard Ogres, nice big maps... If I can't have Ogre Minis, this is the game to have. They're measuring the thing in pounds, for crying out loud. 14 pounds, and perhaps more if they meet some of their stretch goals.

But wait! I can have Ogre Minis! Turns out that a pdf of the revised Ogre Miniatures rules is one of the lower-end rewards. Perhaps if there's enough interest, they'll figure out a way to restart casting the miniatures themselves.

So head on over to Kickstarter and see about supporting this classic and fun-as-hell game. (And while you're there, you might want to pledge to my own A Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore, if you haven't already!)
