Fellow gamers,

We have lost another of our own. Larry Sissons, just informed me that Michel Boucher has passed. Michel was not in good health, but the news is surprising and devastating nonetheless. Michel was a good friend and will be sorely missed. He had a lively mind and was always fun to work with and compete against. As I recall we met at WBC, where I have met so many of my gaming friends. We collaborated on many designs and a number of the early vassal modules for my games were constructed by Michel. He was in the process of working on three titles for me The Berlin Airlift, Black Eagles and most recently helping me to develop Hearts and Minds. Some of you will want to know who will take over the projects - don't want to think about that now. Will keep you informed as news comes available. In the meantime, please keep Michel and his family, in your prayers. He was not religious by any stretch, but Michel was a man who believed in people and the bettering of their lives. He would understand and appreciate each of us mourning in our own fashion.

We will miss you Michel! soblue

Got work with Michel Boucher on his game Thunderbirds at War: Bombing the Reich, Jan. to Jun. 1943 for Compass Games 2012-14. Had only communicated with him a few times since then, but I am saddened to hear of his passing.
