A couple of weeks ago I wrote something in What WotC should of done with D&D Miniatures:
Dumping the skirmish game side of D&D miniatures is sound business sense but they had a number of loyal players who have now been abandoned by WotC. Those people are going to think twice before investing in another Wizards’ game.
To compensate those disappointed players, Wizards should set the skirmish rules, all stats and everything related to the game free. Put PDFs up on the web site and renounce their copyright and other claims on them. Hard core skirmish fans can now develop the game however they like. May be it will still die out but at least the players will feel some ownership and control over the game’s fate. And it just might trigger a resurgence in the game that keeps people buying the figures.
Today Wizards of the Coast have announced that they are licensing the D&D Miniatures Skirmish game to a group knows as “The Guild”. Critical hits has all the details: And also also, the un-end of the D&D Miniatures Game.
Flushed with this predictive success, I’m going off to write an article entitled “Why Wizards should give all their money to me”.
