      I'm really sorry to hear about the floods and how it's affected so many people in the Austin area, including Steve and other people from his SJG. My thoughts and best wishes for all of you, especially best wishes..

      Sorry to hear about the loss. Do take care of your family - I think many (most?) of us understand if there's a delay in things. Family comes first.

      So sorry to hear about this! Having had a basement flood, I can only imagine how horrible losing the whole house is. I know I'm repeating what everyone else has said, but our prayers and thoughts are with Steve and his family, and if there's anything we can do to help, please let us know.

      I'm so sorry to hear this, but at least Steve is OK.

      My thoughts are with you Steve! Also as a car guy I hope your Model S is ok.

      I'm very sorry to hear this. At least Steve is safe, that's the important part.

      What about starting a Kickstarter (or some kind of fund) to help out Steve? Is that possible? I'd definately contribute to help him and anyone else at SJ Games that's been affected by the flooding.

    8. A Jacob Cord

      My thoughts, prayers, good vibes, etc are with Steve and others who have lost so much.

    9. Andy Peterson on

      As the others have stated, prayers and happy thoughts to all of those that were hit by the flooding. Let us know if we can help in any way.

    10. GranitePenguin on

      At the risk of sounding like "me too"... Thoughts and well wishes to you. Stay safe. :-(

    11. Alan Schirtzinger on

      I'm also sorry to hear of this - - please keep us updated.

    12. Zeshio on

      My thoughts go out to you, and I am part of the pack of supporters who would be willing to help any way possible. Will Wheaton was a supporter, let's get him to sponsor something!

      Sorry to hear this.

      After you take inventory of games and books that were waterlogged, let us know. I'm willing to raid my library and game collection to help find replacements, as I'm sure most of us are.

    14. Aaron Wolfrom

      +1 to Sorry and let me know if there is anything we can do to help!

    15. Al Griego on

      So sorry to hear about your house. If there's anything we can do to help, please let us know. Count me in for the house kickstarter as well!!

      What a tragedy to happen during a holiday and in the midst of the epic success of this project. Our thoughts are with you Steve.

      Having recently gone through the Sandy experience, I can well understand the loss you must be feeling at this time.

      Same sentiments as others, please let us know if there is anything that can be done for you.

    18. David Crowell on

      So very sorry to hear about this Steve. Please let us all know if there is anything we can do to help.

    19. Thomas Smith on

      Excess proceeds to go to relief efforts.

    20. Thomas Smith on

      I vote for a Kickstarter project. "Get Steve a new home"

    21. Don Hanson on

      Thoughts and condolences go out to you Steve! If there is some way we can help, let us know.

    22. Justin Gramm

      As many people here have said, if there's anything we can do, let us know. You've got a fairly fanatic support group in the thousands that are willing to help. Insurance covers a lot, but not everything. If there's anything you need, let us know and we'll make it happen.

      Please let us know what we can do to help.

    24. Teodoro Alonso on

      Sad, very sad. I hope you can recover your personal mementos. That is not covered by the insurance. Please tell us how we can help when you get a chance. I have no problem waiting for the game a month longer, if you can use the staff to help you recover.

    25. Doug Sarver on

      Crap with a crap sauce! My thoughts go out to Steve and everyone else affected by this deluge.

      How can we help?

      Best wishes, Steve. A home is a terrible thing to lose.

      (I'll assume every possible joke alluding to the size of the OGRE box has already been made)

    29. Pete Bratach on

      This is so terrible to hear. So very sorry Steve! As others have suggested, let's kickstart a house for you.

    30. BRW Games, LLC on

      All my best wishes, Steve. Hope you get back on your feet quickly.

    31. Missing avatar


      I second (or Nth, at this point) the general sentiment -- what terrible news, and it's too bad that Steve couldn't have some well-deserved rest at this point.

    32. Missing avatar


      That's terrible! I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm glad that it sounds like everyone's ok.
      My sympathies to Steve, his family and everyone else impacted by the floods.

    33. Mordian7th on

      Sincere condolences, Steve - flood damage is insidious and terrible. So sorry to hear about that!

    34. Gawain Lavers on

      How awful. Hope everyone is okay, and nothing irreplaceable was lost.

    35. Daniel Gallant on

      Sorry to hear about this. I hope you had good insurance. If not, a kickstarter may be the solution.

      This is terrible, Steve. Best wishes on getting through this.

      Sorry to hear that Steve, good luck

    38. Royce Day on

      I'm shocked to hear this. I just hope Steve and any of his family that were there are safe.

    39. Ken Andrews on

      Sorry to hear. Hope you can get your books and things out without too much water damage.

    40. Jim Pacek

      That's terrible. So sorry to hear this.

    41. Talarius on

      Wow. So sorry to hear this. :-(

    42. Roland Boshnack on

      I am so sorry to hear this, Steve. One of my fondest memories is of being at your place, drinking grasshoppers and listening to Loren talk about the old days at GDW.

    43. Pete

      Ow! Bad luck Steve! Good luck, I hope that you get things sorted with the minimum of pain and anguish, and that you manage to save as much as possible with sentimental value. :(

    44. Thomas Smith on

      Wow, very sorry to hear of the loss. Hope everyone's alright.

      I'm so very sorry for Steve and the others affected. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to lose one's home. And to come just as Steve could begin to savor the fruitful completion of this great kickstarter campaign makes it even more tragic. Hopefully we can help out in some way.

      Our thoughts are with you Steve.

      So sorry to hear. Hope everyone stays safe.

      Terrible news, huge sympathies to Steve and his family! What an awful blow in the midst of Ogre's amazing success story. Hope you're back on your feet soon Steve!
