Took my Ogre microgame out for a spin--this is the 2013 reprint of the 1977 wargame. All the components harken back to the golden games of yesteryear:

Ahhhh Metagaming…. a half hour to read the rules, a half hour to play, a half hour to cut out the counters evil grin

For those who were not aware of this: Steve Jackson Games currently has the Ogre Pocket Edition for sale at $2.95 USD each (really, not a typo!). Counter and map graphics are the same as the 1977 Metagaming edition, but with proper die-cut counters.

Yeah – just saw that Orcs Nest are selling it for £2.99 GBP – pretty fair price considering imported and all.

It's a bargain – get'em while you can!
