Firefly Games Licenses Og

Indianapolis, Ind. – In 2007, Firefly Games takes fans back to the prehistoric age of gaming with a licensed new edition of Og, designed and written by Robin D. Laws.


The new edition of Og, the classic comedy game of cavemen (and cavewomen) dealing with dinosaurs, limited vocabularies, and other challenges, will boast a cutting-edge ruleset redesigned from the ground up.


“Cavemen are cool, and comedy cavemen are even better,” said publisher Patrick Sweeney of Firefly Games. “I look at Og as an ancestor of the indie game design movement. It has an offbeat focus and a truly innovative core concept – playing with a severely restricted list of words – just like many modern indie games. So the chance to reinvent Og in light of the new approaches to rules design we’re seeing today is just too good to pass up.”


Wingnut Games first published Og: The Role Playing Game in 1995, with a second edition, Land of Og, appearing in 2000.


“Og is more fun than you can shake a club at!” said Aldo Ghiozzi, the original designer of Og. Ghiozzi continued, “Og fits perfectly with the Firefly Games lineup, and I can’t wait to see their evolution of the game.”
