Be happy about it if you must.

Nevertheless there is no doubt that Wizkids and Jordan Weissman changed the face of hobby gaming forever with innovative never-seen-before designs like the pre-painted clicky games (Mage Knight, Heroclix) and constructible plastic card games (Pirates, Star Wars Pocketmodel).
It is really a shame, they had magnificent games, but a severe lack of support and transparency for the customer who never knew what product to expect finally killed them.

RIP, I hope a really dedicated company will take over some of the product lines.

I guess Jordan Weisman sold at the top to Topps and the naysayers were wrong.

Hmm. Seemed to be some consternation in bubble-gum land a year ago:

Michael Eisner? Who? laugh


Apparently Mr. Eisner has decided to do "strategic repositioning" or "focusing on core competencies" which means that WizKids doesn't fit Bubblegum land, so they decide to close the company out, and spin off whatever they can.
