With today's announcement that DoW has sold the BattleLore title to FFG, this makes the second game in recent memory that has been sold to the gaming company up north.

What other games would you like to see sold to Minnesota and receive the FFG treatment?

I've started the list with the announced titles. Please add your nomination and reasons why the title would make a good FFG game.

Not a follower of this series, I only know a little about the deal. FFG purchased Talisman and will be releasing their own version of 4th edition. They will also be providing an Upgrade Kit that allows owners of the original version to get the new pieces without having to buy a new game.

In this case the rights-holder is probably still Hasbro, inherited from Avalon Hill. Hasbro is never going to reprint Dune--why not sell the rights and invest that money in your flagship lines? And if FFG gets it, you know what's coming, don'tcha? Little plastic ornithopters and great big sandworms. It'll be awesome.

Please?

EDIT: Okay, looks like the holdup is a little different than what I thought. Would someone kindly sell FFG the theme?

If you're going to include games that they recently acquired, then this should probably be here, too- they've had the rights for a while now, but the game isn't out yet. Definitely a game that is right up their alley, and one that should benefit from the Fantasy Flight treatment. If they hadn't already acquired the rights to it, I'd add it to this list as one that they should pick up.

DOW announced the complete sale of BattleLore and all worldwide rights to FFG. It is hoped that any upgrade to the base set will be treated the same way as the Talisman Upgrade Kit.

Many felt this was a natural fit for the Fantasy Commands & Colors title. With the high quality of the components and the dedication to the fan base, it is expected that this will be a seamless transition.

I guess I'll be the first to add this one. If you're going to pass along Battlelore, you might as well throw in the very-similar M'44. After all, it would seem to entail many of the same production issues BL posed for DOW: modular system, frequent expansions, maintaining user-created content, and so forth. I seem to recall there was some talk of releasing individual figures for BL--not a particularly practical move for M'44--but, otherwise, it makes M'44 very different from the rest of DOW's line, which tends to be either stand-alone or big-box expansion.

I know at least a few people are hacked off about this new "limited-use paper map" thing DOW announced, and feel it's sending M'44 off in the wrong direction. On the other hand, getting Battlelore off the production schedule might give DOW enough breathing room to give the upcoming expansions a revisit. Since M'44 is probably DOW's second-biggest franchise after TtR, I honestly think they'd rather keep it and do it right than jettison it. But, if they do put it on the block, FFG's a natural choice.

So, how long till they get permission for this one?

There's been talk about GW probably doesn't want to let someone else do miniatures based on their sculpts. But, it could be a spring board to get non-mini gamers to buy some of their blisters.

This is probably too much of a minis game to get the right to do it. But it is very worthy of being redone and republished. It could lead to a dozen expansions.

I'd like to see this released as a Living Card Game, similar to what is being done with Call of Cthulhu: Collectible Card Game and A Game of Thrones Collectible Card Game, that includes a folding player board for the Corp and for the Runner, plus an appropriate collection of markers to act as "bits" and counters.

Too bad one of the three authors is still refusing a reprint.
If you don't have a copy, you can still undersign the petition http://www.skrol29.com/petitionfmp.php?lang=2
Or play the software version http://www.fullmetalplanete.com/FMP_Home.html

Wiz-War would be a perfect FFG release. It's fantasy and it has lots of bits.

Just imagine what FFG could do with this... and, even if it is FFG, it would probably ship before Chessex's version would.

I want a new Blood Bowl edition with pre-painted minis and lots of pre-painted teams to purchase. I'd even settle for cheap card-board standees, but would love me some pre-painted minis. I just wish GW would hand this title over to someone that would manage it correctly, like FFG.

I believe they have the license to this in their bag of stuff that they bought off GW.

It was a very unusual and innovative game when it was released. Frankly, it still is - there is so much in here that's worth saving. But it's one of those games where separating the wheat from the chaff is going to be extremely difficult, so I'm not holding my breath.

Another one Hasbro may still have the rights to but will never reprint. Only FFG could update this classic and do it justice. But I can't see 'em adding another title to compete with the Runebound and Warcraft series they already print.
