Description Edit | History

John Michael Young (September 2, 1947 - May 1978) was a game designer who appears to have only designed wargames for SPI when he worked there as an employee. He designed the SPI Tactical Series of wargames and designed and developed the SPI "Pre-Seventeenth Century Tactical Game System" known as PRESTAGS.

Note: He is perhaps most famous for using the word "grognard" to describe veteran wargamers in the early 1970s.
