Designer: Brad Smith

Brad Smith's solitaire games provide gripping narratives and moments of nail-biting tension, centered on air warfare. His Cold War Goes Hot classic "NATO Air Commander" is a crowd-pleasing debut. But his Charles S. Roberts Award nominated search-and-rescue game That Others May Live and his new game of civilian resistance to fascism, Comet, are both sensitive, thoughtful explorations of topics that are usually unexplored in simulation gaming.
