WashingtonI spent 100 Geek Gold and all I got was this lousy overtext message!
Quote:Folks, this just came across my Email from the Napoleon's Battles Yahoo Group:
Bob Coggins asked me to let everyone know that Craig Taylor passed away this week. Cause of death was undetermined at this time, but will be available later, I'm sure. Bob's computer is down at the moment so he will not be able to respond to any questions on line. We will let everyone know more details as they become available. Craig was a prolific and successful miniatures and board game historical rules writer and co-author of Napoleon's Battles. I've known him since his Avalon Hill days when I was one of the staff playtesters on Avalon Hill's version of the Australian Napoleonic game "Empires in Arms," which Craig shepherded through the redesign effort and publication. His integrity and willingness to go the extra mile in game development was well known. He was an amazing game designer and developer with a long list of titles to his credit. The hobby has lost a true professional, a
true friend. He will be missed.

Though I didn't know him personally, I have at least 10 of his games in my collection. If in that way alone, our paths crossed. It's sad to see a dedicated designer and contributor to our hobby pass. Here's to the "Iron Man". May his "Wooden Ships" always sail West.
