OGRE DE prototype at MillCon
I had a chance to get a close-up look at some of the components for the upcoming OGRE Designer's Edition at MillenniumCon on Friday, including counters and reference sheets. I didn't actually play a game, but I did get some pics for you.
A Man in Black brought the game to the con, and he showed off some of the building and cybertank models assembled from cardstock.
As you can see, the counters are huge and have color artwork. We've come a long way since the black-on-white silhouettes from the pocket version of the game. The small box pictured above isn't actually part of the game--it's just a reskinned card game container to hold the counters.
I also got a look at the maps. I'm looking forward to the additional green GEV-type maps, which will provide even more real estate to fight over. I can't wait to use the modular terrain to change the game board when a cruise missile detonates!
Unfortunately, we probably won't see the game for sale until next year. Until then, enjoy the photos and protect that command post!
