Heritage Wargames Age of Conquistadors: 1492-1612
Heritage game Studios
OFFICIAL COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT:

Mr. Berg unfortunately did not complete Conquistador or do any work after his initial rules submission. Even after he was advanced money. We made repeated attempts for almost 2 years to work with him creatively. I doubt that any game company would have had the patience or understanding that my staff has went through in all of this. It almost destroyed our fledgling company.

I have continued to work on the game (while this was going on) to being about 98% complete. And, still intend on releasing it at some point. Since, playtesting is giving me very favorable results. And, that was the only way it was going to get done. I believe we have a good game reminiscent of the old game. But, none of it is Mr. Berg’s anymore. Not a single sentence, card, bibliography, designer notes or map are his.

Also, due to this we are cancelling all of Mr. Berg’s titles under contract. And, they will be removed from our sites ASAP. We wish him the best of luck and really did wish that it could have worked out.

Sincerely, Greg Allen

Can't say I'm surprised by this.

He's been too busy trolling on Facebook.

I never use this term, but, it applies in this case: OMG.

Related, we actually plan on playing (the original) at the club ( First Minnesota Historical Wargame Society ) soon.

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

Business partners shouldn't fight their spats publicly. In a poo flinging match like this, the only winning move is not to play.

Hey I like that cover! It just needs a Monty Python-esque face of God in the clouds of the top right corner.

That thread is ugly on all counts. Some of the third party comments are the ugliest of all. Nothing to be proud of there on anyone's part.

Not surprising considering he publicly shamed them on FB on the 8th. He says they took P500 money and failed to deliver, and they claim they only received one set of unfinished rules.
