The Land of Ogg – System Mastery 178


We needed a break to finish our second book, and when you live in a gig economy that just means doing a smaller job that week!  The Land of Ogg started around 1993 and is a game about dumb cavemen failing at everything.  Here is an obligatory joke about the current federal government.  Please enjoy.

  1. Much like Pluto, It’s a matter of debate whether the Brontosaurus is actually a dinosaur these days. Though if it was deemed not a dinosaur as early as 1903, I don’t know why it was taught to us in school, since the resurgence seems to have only come back in 2015.

    I think the hip dinosaurs these days, aside from T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor, Ankylosaurus- would be like Gallimimus, Parasaurolophus, Pachycephalosaurus and probably Brachiosaurus. At least that’s my impression from the kids media. Gallimimus was also in jurassic park btw (a T-rex eats one).

  2. Also- I have to wonder if richard simmons was included because of that one simpsons episode from 95. I think that was the thing that sort of immortalized him into pop culture from my perspective anyhow.

  3. I think there’s a version called just “Og Unearthed Edition” where Robin D. Laws reworked the system and it’s not just penalties and is a bit more sensible.

    • Yes, it’s definitely reworked. In Unearthed, everyone gets a roll for number of words, the smart caveman gets more than the other most, and everyone understands all the words even if they can’t use them.
