February 2018

Well, yesterday I was confessing that I'd only managed a partial update and was giving lots of excuses why. Turns out that I'd done the vast majority (and could have done the last little bit) as the only omissision was this monthh's single submission, an update from Dave Rubin for his Case Green Cyberboard gamebox. Not sure why this month was so quiet but there you are - update now complete.

Prize Draw Update

Thanks again to those of you that donated as part of LYG's 15th Anniversary Charity Donation Drive - and to the sponsors that contributed prizes.

We had a total of 37 donations. Let's be frank, that's not great (especially as it was for charity), but is a lot better than it was looking at the end of week one (when I was even wondering whether LYG was worth the effort).

BUT the donations we did get were incredibly generous and we've raised a total of  £624 to be divided equally between:

 The Royal British Legion (http://www.britishlegion.org.uk/)

Royal British legion

and LOROS (https://www.loros.co.uk/

I'll not know the final figure raised for a few days but will update you all when I do know.

Well, thats it. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone that participated!
 
IMPORTANT NOTE 1: I've emailed all prize winners and all those due to receive a copy of All or Nothing to request their postal address. So far just over half of you have responded. I can only arrange for you to receive your reward if I have your address, please end it ASAP.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2: The charity donation drive is now closed. Any donations received via the 'Support Limey Yank Games' link (see top of page) will not go to charity but will go towards the upkeep of the site - these donations are still VERY welcome of course.
