Flash Floods in Texas

Posted by Steve Jackson Games (Creator)

It’s possible some of you heard about the flooding in Austin, TX last night. If you haven’t: there were flash flood warnings throughout the night, and there’s quite a bit of water on the ground. As far as we know, everyone’s okay. There’s been some water damage; Steve’s house in particular is a total loss, and he’s looking for a hotel room to use until he can find a new place to live. We’ll update you if we find out anything else!

      Steve,
      Sad to hear about your house. If there anything that I can do to help please say so. I will be happy to send a donation to the Red Cross if you post the info.

      Ashamed that my first thought was "But is the warehouse with the OGRE games OK?"

      Awful news about Steve's house! That's just awful. I'm glad no one was injured, but that still really sucks. If there's a fundraiser or anything to help Steve get through this, please let us know.

      Hang in there; as a backer from Boulder, the recent floods showed how serious that can be. Thank god the game boxes didn't get loose; they'd have been fine but would have caused some real damage as they were swept downstream ;).

      The temptation to build a room out of OGRE boxes must be intense. It wouldn't last as long as he needs, but it would be cool.

      Oh wow that is terrible to hear. I hope everyone is okay. Games can wait, sure up the home life first!

      If there's anything we can do, let us know. I live in the area and can help out if needed.
