our game of Hordes of the Things on Saturday, I broke out my copy of OGRE Designer's Edition. Instead of the traditional Toast the Post game on the orange map, we decided to play the Raid scenario on one of the GEV maps (G2, to be precise). Rickey chose the attacking side, with 10 GEVs. As the defender, I had 20 infantry squads and four armor units. More importantly, I set up with my units camouflaged, and with a couple of dummy units as well. I used numbered markers to indicate where my forces were set up; they were only revealed when they moved, fired, or were fired upon. I also rolled for random reinforcements each turn.
Meanwhile, he destroyed one mobile command post with his Ogre, and the other with his GEVs (I think those hovercraft were actually more effective than the Mark IV!). This game, there was one reinforcement roll that was critical: I got a heavy tank that entered the town the Ogre was attacking. With its defense doubled in the city, the armor unit avoided getting hit and added its firepower to my Ogre's, allowing us to take out its main and secondary batteries.
I had a good time, and now I want to play some more OGRE! Who's up for it?
