Fellow game designer and much loved family man, Zach Best, has passed. My condolences go out to his friends and family.
Zach suffered from Oesophageal cancer and died last night. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
Zach, founder of conjecture games, was a pioneer in the gaming industry, with a focus on solo roleplaying in his UNE, CRGE and BOLD systems.
Jacob Ross has done a great job organising a bundle on Drivethrurpg, and Zach's Book, which he will be leaving up indefinitely for proceeds to go to Zach's family. You can get Zach's Book here.
I regret never getting to know Zach personally, but his spirit and work will live on through the gaming community.
