RPG So Steve Jackson Games started a Kickstarter to fund a new edition of OGRE...

...and well...

I don't know much about Ogre. But I love Steve Jackson Games (GURPS 4th for the win). But now I'm sort of thinking about plunking down 100 bucks in support of what clearly seems to be a game with a lot of hardcore fans.

But I don't know anything about Ogre. Do you? Is it a rewarding game? Complex?

It's pretty much on a level of complexity with classic BattleTech, I'd say.

It was a pretty cool little game back in the day. I've got both the early Metagaming, Inc. editions of Ogre and its sequel G.E.V. from the late '70s, and the (slightly) higher-component-quality combined Ogre/G.E.V. edition that SJG released in 2001...

...I also have the mid-'80s edition of The Ogre Book that SJG put out in dead-tree version, and the e23 PDF edition of the updated release of The Ogre Book...and a dead-tree copy of GURPS Ogre....
