OGRE (Steve Jackson Games edition), boxed wargame
The command post is well guarded. Tanks, armed hovercraft, missile cannon, infantrymen in powered armour – all with one job: to defend that vital spot. Your mission is to go in and destroy it. Alone.
But when those defenders see you, they’ll wish they were somewhere else. Because you’re not a man. You’re a thinking machine – the deadliest device on any battlefield.
You’re the OGRE.
OGRE is a tactical ground combat game set in the next century. In 2085 A.D., armoured warfare continues – faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks, and infantry slug it out with tactical nuclear devices. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It’s the giant cybernetic tank called the Ogre.
The basic version of OGRE gives one player a force of infantry and armour, and a command post he must defend. The other player has only one unit – but it’s an Ogre. It’s an even match. Advanced games allow solitaire or multi-player action – with Ogres on both sides. Optional rules include concealed units, mines and self-destruct.
Over 100,000 copies of Ogre and its sequel game, G.E.V. are in print. This new Pocket Box edition features improved game components, including:
- 112 backprinted counters (MINT and UNCUT), and a ziplock bag to store them (PRESENT)

- 16-page illustrated rulebook (MINT)
- Combat Result Tables and extra Ogre sheets for both players (MINT, not removed from rulebook).
For 1 or 2 players. Playing time 60 to 90 minutes.”
The box itself is in VERY GOOD condition. This copy also comes with a couple of magazine articles about OGRE.
