It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of one of Mayfair's co-founders, Peter Bromley. Peter died on September 2, 2016 after a brief illness. Peter and his brother Darwin along with a few other gamers founded Mayfair Games in 1981. Peter had several roles during his many years with the company including game designing and development, assisting with art direction, marketing, sales and even shipping. Peter was a constant presence in the company until this past year.
As we reported earlier, Isle of Skye was nominated for one of the most prestigious prizes in tabletop gaming, the Kennerspiel des Jahres, given each year to "expert" or complex board games with a great deal of depth. Well today we can proudly announce that Isle of Skye won its category!
