I was deeply saddened to hear that Craig Taylor passed away. I tried to confirm the news independently in the hopes that it was simply a rumor. Unfortunately, I now know it is true.

I discovered wargaming through a Craig Taylor design, and after that my life took a different course. Since then, I've been an avid wargamer, and I've always been interested in Craig's work.

Therefore, when I had a chance to interview Craig for a series on influential designers, I jumped at it. I've been interviewing Craig over the past year. He was kind enough to share his valuable experiences of his time in the wargaming world. This list contains information I learned directly from him as well as from past interviews and designer notes.

It's no exaggeration to say Craig's work has had a huge influence on me. I hope this list helps people map his career and understand the impact he's had on wargame design.

On a personal level, even though we never met in person, I will miss him. Thank you, Craig.
