Now, this classic game is returning in a new Sixth Edition.  This version is designed to be compatible with the massive Ogre Designer’s Edition that was released in 2013 , using the same game board and 58 over-sized counters for the game’s units, as well as two constructible 3D Ogres and two Command Posts.  The Sixth Edition will also include 16 map overlays that can be used to create custom scenarios and a pair of 19mm acrylic dice.  MSRP is $49.95.  Steve Jackson is also offering a free smartphone app that can track the condition of the Ogre during play.
