"Ogre is a two-player board wargame designed by Steve Jackson, and first released in 1977 as Metagaming Concepts' first Microgame It is an asymmetrical forces combat game,[2] set in the late 21st century. One player has a single giant robot tank called an "Ogre", which is pitted against a second player's headquarters, defended by a mixture of conventional tanks, infantry, and artillery.

The concept of a huge multi-function combat tank was strongly influenced by the Bolo featured in Keith Laumer's novels and short stories, and Colin Kapp's short story "Gottlos" (1969). The Ogre itself is named after the large and strong mythological ogre."
