Description Edit | History

John Evans Hill (February 21, 1945 - January 12, 2015) was an American game designer and military analyst who was probably best known for designing the popular wargame Squad Leader, one of the best-selling wargames of all-time, along with the game Johnny Reb III. In the 1960s, he founded the Conflict Games Company which he eventually sold to Game Designers Workshop. In 1978, he was named to the Wargaming Hall of Fame. He was a frequent contributor to the Johnny Reb magazine Charge!

In the 1980s, he began working for the government as a senior military analyst where he worked for 16 years including at Los Alamos National Laboratory. At various times, he lived in Indiana, Virginia, and New Mexico.

Awards

  • Winner of the 1978 Charles S. Roberts Hall of Fame Award at Origins '79.
  • Charles Roberts and H.G. Wells awards for best tactical wargames in 1977 and 1983.
  • In 1980, readers of Campaign Magazine selected Squad Leader as the Best Wargame of All Time.
