Some sad news. Robert Washington passed away on June 6th, 2012. He was a board game GM at past Ubercons and I roomed with him at one Ubercon. One of the games he ran and liked was "Venus Needs Men." He was in the Intensive Care unit of the hospital and died of a heart attack. He went through some hard times financially towards the end. He lived in NYC and was in the NYC Boardgames and Cardgames meetup. Despite his hardships, he was always kind and willing to teach people to play new games. He was only 47 years old. He will be missed.
