Do We Want Ogre Miniatures? Steve Jackson Wants to Know!

As most of you know, Steve Jackson Games is currently in the midst of a hugely successful Kickstarter Campaign for a new edition of Ogre with top-notch components. They blew past their initial goal almost instantly, and are now undertaking an online survey to see what their next stretch goal should be.

One of the options is to commit to bringing back the miniatures line in 2013.

I realize that my love of Ogre miniatures is not something shared by all of the readers of this blog, but I think it would be an enormous boost to the hobby as a whole to see a game that won an Origins award when it was introduced brought back to life. It really is a fantastic game, and if the miniature line was restarted, it would make the game accessible to new players once again.

So please, take a minute to check out the survey, and if you can find it in your heart to give the "Commit to bring back Ogre Miniatures in 2013" option high marks, I will be quite grateful. And, of course, consider making a pledge to the Kickstarter campaign. It's a hell of a game, and it looks to be a hell of a version.
