Gale Force 9 Suing Wizards of the Coast

Gale Force Nine, maker of D&D minis and accessories for games including World of Tanks and the Doctor Who board game, has sued Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering publisher Wizards of the Coast in Washington state after months of licensing disputes between the two companies. The suit seeks $950,000 in addition to related costs and previously owed amounts.

According to a November 17th filing, GF9 accuses Wizards of being in breach of both contract and “implied duty of good faith and fair dealing”, alongside a few injunctions. ICv2 further reports that licence renewal talks had soured back in May. GF9 alleges that Wizards wanted to end an agreement between them one year earlier than planned and ceased negotiations after GF9 pushed back. That licence apparently gives GF9 translation and distribution rights to Dungeons & Dragons products in a number of international markets.

GF9 said Wizards ceased any further approval of products in those markets following the licence disagreements.
