Starting this morning, Steve Jackson Games has launched a KS Campaign for a new "Ogrezine" .PDF publication due in the Spring.

$3.00 gets you full access, but other levels have more swag.

It funded in under an hour, and looks to break all the minimal Stretch Goals within 24 hours.

The loyalty and support of Ogre fans is always deeply appreciated! This is going to be a really fun project over the next 6 months or so! What a way to celebrate the 40th Anniversary. Thank you everyone; you are the greatest!

I just wish my budget allowed for the sway, Ogre 6th and reinforcements. Well of course who would say no to minis?

Because shipping those physical items to foreign countries is incredibly expensive, so SJG isn't offering it.

They have noted that all the physical items being offered are now, or will soon be, available at regular retail stores, so grab them there, rather than directly via KS.

Completely understand.

Be that as it may I have seen other Kickstarter Campaigns where they charge for shipping so the company doesn't incur the cost. This can't be done in this case?


SJG uses only USPS for shipping and USPS international rates are exorbitant. i once had to pay 50 cents per playing card shipping costs for some replacement cards from the States.

Only 18 hours to go! If you haven't pledged, please consider doing so. I want to see us hit 1000 backers! Remember, after tomorrow Ogrezine will cost $9 on W23.

And for those of you that have already reached out with ideas and articles, thank you! I will be getting back to all of you in the near future. If you haven't sent in anything, but are thinking of doing so, please read the Writer's Guidelines and then let me know.

Ogrezine. Wow!

i guess it's too late in the campaign to add a "PDF subscription" pledge. At $9 per issue, i'm extremely unlikely to buy any after the first one (which i get for $3) :/.

Although it is not scheduled as such currently, I'd like to see this as an annual release. And with the success of this KS, I'm hoping we do this again next year! We shall see . . .
