Ogre War Room

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a free helper app for Ogre. This is not a standalone game! You will need a copy of the Ogre board game (or Ogre Miniatures) to play a game.
Use the app to score a game for up to six players and any number of Ogres.
The Combat Calculator simplifies your combat calculations. To use it, enter the attack strength of each attacking unit (these are summed together). Then select the defense value of the defending unit. The ratio of attack to defense is calculated for you (ratios are always rounded off in the defender's favor). Roll for results. The resulting value is from the Combat Results Table (NE for no effect, D for disabled, and X for destroyed.)
The app also includes printable PDF Record Sheets for both the Ogre board game and Ogre miniatures.
Note: Version 1 is optimized for the iPhone. We do plan to make an iPad-friendly version after we've gotten some feedback on this version.
Our thanks to the 5,512 backers who supported the Ogre Designer's Edition on Kickstarter and made this app possible!
What's New in Version 1.3
- Added a colored border for the Ogre image on the record sheet
- Made the Ogre name an editable text field on the record sheet
- Moved the Roll butn on the Combat Calculator so it stays in the same place after you roll
- Added multi-dice rolling to the dice screen
- Fixed a graphics positioning bug on iPod Touch
- Icon improved for iOS7
Very nice helper for the Ogre board game. Has interactive damage sheets for all the Ogres and a super heavy, combat calculator for attack:defense ratios, and a dice roller. I would very much like to see a force composition helper added!
This is a good aid for playing Ogre. To make it great, it would be cool to include a couple of the solo variants that have appeared over the years. This would be a real enhancement allowing for more game play.
I STILL have his old wargames, Metagaming, Microgames, Car Wars... He needs to bring them back to the IPAD
