For those who like board games, Ogre might be a good option. For those who don't, the chances of that are lower, though not impossible. To sum up, it lacks the enough quantity and quality of content to be easily marked as recommendable, so it will be relegated to a fast omission. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

Digital tabletop games are a great idea, but Ogre is simply too harsh for anyone but the most stubborn of players, thanks to some of the worst RNG I've seen. When played with friends however, it shows how good the game could have been.

Perfect for anyone that remembers playing the original in the previous century or folks looking to visit gaming of the past, Auroch Digital's OGRE is a faithful re-engineering of a venerable classic. You get all of the strategy and tactical action of the original absent the bookkeeping, lost game pieces, and requirement of having friends actually in your house to play.

If you are an old timer like yours truly, or if you simply love turn based strategy enough to never miss a chance (like yours truly), potentially also seeking a tool with which to saw the seed of strategy with friends and family, I'd say: let this Ogre trounce you.
