A List of Underfollowed Wargame Designers on Twitter


I use Twitter to follow others in the gaming hobby and to keep a finger on the pulse.  Wargame designers are always interesting to me and provide me with ideas and motivation. Thinking about that holistically I wondered, who are we all missing?  Below is my list of Wargame Designers on Twitter with 500 followers or less and their associated games. Although I generally disqualify wargame designers who mistakenly think we follow them for their political views, here I will let you sort them out while giving a warning or two.  Caveat emptor.

As always, let me know what I am missing.
