Description Edit | History

Samuel Craig Taylor, Jr. (March 1946 - June 21, 2012) was an American game designer who is perhaps best known for designing the popular naval wargame Wooden Ships & Iron Men back in 1975. Some of his other popular game included the Sergeants! family of wargames and numerous Battleline and Yaquinto games that he designed with J. Stephen Peek.

Born in Philadelphia, Taylor lived there until his Air Force father was called up for the Korean War. As his father was in the military, he attended 11 different schools in 12 years. Taylor started in the hobby in 1956 playing with miniatures and moved on to other wargames two years later. Around 1964, he returned exclusively to miniature wargames until he was contacted by Steve Peek in the spring of 1973 while he was living in Georgia about printing Wooden Ships & Iron Men as a board game.

Taylor helped Steve Peek run the small game company Battleline until it was sold to Avalon Hill. In 1979, Robert Yaquinto hired the two of them to create games for his new game company Yaquinto. In January 1984, when the popularity of board games was falling, Taylor started working for Avalon Hill.
