Many of you have said in one way or another "How can I thank you for making such great games?" Well, I have a way actually. I used to be on the Board of Directors for the Alameda County Community Food Bank, an agency that feeds over 800,000 meals to hungry people every month, but they are only scratching the surface of the problem. And with the tight economy, more people losing their jobs every day, and many people donating to the other world disaster causes instead of local charities, they are receiving less money than expected and needing to feed more and more people every month.

If you want to thank me, do so by making a tax deductible donation to this food bank. You can find their site at: There is a link to an online secure page for donating via Visa, or you can send a check if this makes you nervous. I personally do not see any of this money, it all goes to a good cause to feed hungry people. Please, consider helping those less fortunate than us, and do let me know if you make a donation so I can personally thank you as well. (You can do this online by selecting the box that says "My donation is a tribute to someone special" and putting my name in there, or write "Requested by Owen Rubin" on your check. Again, it just tells the food bank that you are donating at my request so they can tell me you did that.) Thanks again for all your continued support for my old games, and in return for the donations, I will continue to personally answer email questions from any of you as quickly as possible as my way of saying thank you.
