A Fond Farewell to a Mayfair Founder

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. He will be remembered fondly by the many people who had the opportunity to meet him, share a meal or glass of wine or play a game with him.

From as early as 1962 Peter shared playing and then collecting games with his brother Darwin. Together they amassed an extensive collection of early adventure games, including most of the early war games, then role playing games, and then collectible card games. The collection has remained intact and has been donated to the National Museum of Play for the benefit of gamers and researchers in the future. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in memory of Peter Bromley to the The Strong Museum (National Museum of Play) at http://www.museumofplay.org/support/gifts or by mail to The Strong, Institutional Advancement, One Manhattan Square, Rochester, NY 14607.
