SUMMARY

Trevor Bender started war gaming at age 11 when he was introduced to Panzer Blitz. Many other Avalon Hill titles followed, as well as home-grown tweaks of existing designs.
His first published material appeared in Military History magazine, then later in The General, The Boardgamer, Operations, C3i and Strategy & Tactics Magazines. His first game publications were scenarios for the Great Campaigns of the American Civil War (GCACW).

In 2014 Trevor had a conversation with Volko Ruhnke about using the Labyrinth game to model the Arab Spring. A two year effort followed that resulted in the first expansion called Labyrinth: Awakening, and which will shortly be followed by Labyrinth: Forever War.

He is also working on a up to 6 player COIN game on the very recent Syrian Civil War.
Trevor has a Bachelors in History and Political Science from BYU and a Masters in National Security from Georgetown. He is an active volunteer in Scouts BSA, has been married 28 years and has four children and one grandchild.
