Really sad news Condolences to the family. At 68 he is gone too soon.

I want remember a game of his: The Campaign Series. It is in my top five computer wargames ever and gave me a lot of fun over many years.

John Tiller's games provided many of us a lot of hours of enjoyment. My hat is off to you, John.

May you rest in peace.

That is such sad news! I have a number of his games and have been especially fond of the campaign series going all the way back to the Talonsoft days to today's JTCS.

RIP, John!

Being an old guy, I thought I was fairly acquainted with the concept of the first death, but I have to admit, I was sort of "shocked" at John Tiller's unexpected passing.

There will certainly be an appropriate time of mourning, and then we see how his company creatively carries on his legacy.

As Rickier65 says above, "He will surely be missed."

I bet I have none of JT's games but I still have mad respect for him. How many games do I have that were influenced by JT ?

Yeah, no sad funeral smiley's, maybe just we drink to a Tiller and use this one?
