I just noticed the Ogre Reinforcement pack @ Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAPUD85/?tag=article-boardgameg... From the description/comments it sounds like the units overlap w/ what is found in the Designer's Edition... however the scenarios are new. I don't need more units at this point (from what I remember I don't think I have any more room in the "garage" for more units anyway) but I would like the scenarios. Does anyone know if those are available somewhere? I took a quick look at SJ website but there was nothing obvious there that I could find.

TIA

A) if you have the Designer's Edition then you don't need the Reinforcement Pack (in terms of units) unless you're a collector or have OCD (what, me?). (The Combine Ogres have a slightly different red than the Designer's Edition, and SJG knows full well that that's reason enough for some of us to purchase it :/.)

B) i'm also unable to find a PDF copy of the Reinforcement rules/scenarios :/.

I actually have the original scenario book from way back when. Does the #2 book include those scenarios from the Reinforcement pack though?

Going from memory, I believe that the scenarios in Reinforcements are available elsewhere ... but I may be wrong.

Are these scenarios playable only using the Ogre 6th Edition and Reinforcement components?


They should be playable with any version of Ogre, from the 1977 one, to the 1980's era ones, to the KS version, to 6E and 'Reinforcements'. SJG has also now released PDF's of the later add-ons 'Shockwave' (1984) and 'Battlefields' (2001).

No. Scenario Book #2 is a collection of the KS contest winners. It has nothing to do with the Reinforcements set. Those scenarios were designed with Ogre Designer's Edition in mind (i.e., the current version of Ogre did not exist when these were being created). As such, they either use maps that are not available anywhere other than ODE, or overlays that exist only in ODE. You can "get by" in most cases, but you will have to make your own maps/counters to play a lot of them if all you have is 6E + Reinforcements.

So essentially those found here http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenarios/ Which is where I was hoping to find the reinforcement scenarios but no joy

Actually, some of the Reinforcements scenarios ARE there

Kickstarter Stretch Goal Scenarios

GEV Escort by Steve Jackson - 6E Base set
Dogpile by Steve Jackson - Reinforcements
Gauntlet by Steve Jackson - Reinforcements
Sidewinder by Steve Jackson - Online
Ogrelympics by Steve Jackson - Reinforcements
Mini Breakthrough by Steve Jackson - Reinforcements
Mini Ceasefire Collapse by Steve Jackson - Reinforcements
RTS by Steve Jackson - Online
Longview by Steve Jackson - Online

Scenarios that are in Reinforcements that are not on that list can be found elsewhere:

The Black Knight - Scenario Book 1
Kill the Ogre - Scenario Book 1
Spoiling Attack - Scenario Book 1

So ALL scenarios that are in the Reinforcements are available online or in PDF form.
