Our Support for Ukraine

To the Russian players who have bought some of our games in the past: we strongly believe the vast majority of you do not support the acts of war your president and government have unleashed upon Ukraine.

We totaled all of the profit we have ever received from Russian copies of CGE games; it is nearly €400,000 Euro. We have sent all of this money to help Ukraine.

We hope you won't mind this decision. Perhaps you may even welcome it. Thank you again for buying, playing, and enjoying our games—in addition to the fun we hope you had with them, it will now also help a just cause.
