Mike, David and I played some very old-school Ogre / GEV last Sunday in Brunswick. Two of our Star Fleet Battles players dropped so rather than screw up the SFB scenario, we switched games entirely and played a different hex and counter system that's quite Pizza Hut-friendly.
It'd been a really long time since I played Ogre so there was a 5-minute wake-up period for me. We played the Raid scenario with Ogres on each side - a Mk IV for Mike the attacker, a Mk. V for David defending and I would handle the small stuff reinforcements.
That gigantic stack of GEVs would soon get shot at. If you remember anything about Ogre, there's a thing called "spillover fire" which affects everything else in the target's hex.
So, game one was a solid Pan Euro (defender) victory. Mike's dice were as terrible as I've ever seen and mine and David's dice were very good. We decided to play another.
Another defender win. On the ride home, David and I discussed the victory conditions and decided that the attacker must work on the Mk V right off the bat to have any prayer of winning. We'll test that theory next time.
It was a very enjoyable afternoon of tanks and dice. Looking forward to the next!
