  FAQ regarding the sale of BattleLore by Days of Wonder to Fantasy Flight Games Thu, 21 August 2008 18:05
Days of Wonder has announced an agreement to sell the BattleLore Game System to Fantasy Flight Games. You can read the announcement on our Press Releases Page.

Why did Days of Wonder do this deal?
We progressively came to realize that we did not have the proper resources to support and develop this game system in a way that would simultaneously please the fans, deliver on the vision we had initially outlined and meet our own internal financial goals; With fuel, labor and plastic costs out of China rising continuously, we decided to face reality, bite the bullet and do the right thing by finding a partner with the resources and a deep love of the genre and product. We are firmly convinced we could not have found a better home for BattleLore than with Fantasy Flight.

Why are BattleLore products no longer available in the web store?
As part of this agreement, we are transitioning our entire inventory of BattleLore products to FFG. This transition will occur in the coming weeks. As a result, effective immediately, all BattleLore products are now marked as unavailable on our web store, as we prepare to ship our inventory to FFG.

I preordered "For Troll and Country". What will happen to my order?
These Troll Battle Maps are currently on a boat and will arrive at our warehouse sometime in October. We want to thank those who have already pre-ordered the map sight unseen, and have made the decision that we will fulfill your order at no charge, (i.e. you will receive a free copy of the map) once the Troll Battle Maps arrive. You do not need to do anything at this stage, this will happen automatically when we receive the Troll Battle Maps.
The remainder of our stock of Troll Battle Maps will then be shipped to FFG, who will take responsibility for the distribution of the remaining Troll Battle Maps.
For European Customers only: We will of course refund your payment for the amount of the Troll Battle Map before sending you the Map free of charge, since in Europe orders are charged when entered into our web store.

I am a US/Canadian reseller and have some outstanding orders with my distributor, Alliance Games, regarding the Troll Battle Maps. What will happen to my pre-orders?
All the details are not finalized, as there may be pricing changes from FFG for this expansion, but Alliance is still expected to stock the Troll Battle Maps when they become available. And of course Alliance will also continue to carry the other BattleLore products going forward, but on FFG's behalf once the transition is completed, in September 2008.

I am a European reseller and have some outstanding orders with my distributor regarding the Troll Battle Maps. What will happen to my pre-orders?
Please contact your local distributor directly.

I am missing some parts. Who will I get them from?
For the time being, you can continue to contact us with customer requests for spare parts. Once the transition is complete, we will transfer our inventory of spare parts to FFG, at which point they will assume responsibility for support of the game.

What will happen to the BattleLore forum and my scenarios on DOW's web site?
We will keep this forum and the Adventure scenarios alive for the foreseeable future. Once FFG's own forum is up and running, we will progressively retire ours, though not necessarily shut it down. This will partially depend on whether we can find a way to export the scenarios out to FFG's site. If not, we will let you produce PDFs of the existing base of scenarios.

What does this agreement mean?
At the end of August, DOW will transfer to FFG all of its inventory of and rights to the BattleLore game system. FFG will then take on the development, marketing and sales support of the game. Future announcements will be made directly by FFG.

What happens to my web code number?
When we finally discontinue the Adventure editor, once BattleLore has transitioned over to FFG, we will also stop accepting any unused BattleLore web code numbers.
So if you have an unregistered code, you should register it now, just to be safe, and use it to gain access time to some of our existing online games, such as Gang of Four and Ticket to Ride.
Note that even if you still have some Time Credit left on your online account coming from other Web Code numbers, the time you will gain from entering your BattleLore web code numbers will cumulate: So don't hesitate nor wait, and enter your BattleLore web code numbers while they are still valid!

What does this mean for Memoir '44?
Memoir '44 is in no way impacted by this deal. If anything, it means that we (DOW) will have even more time to devote to the development of expansions for this game. We understand that some of you may be skeptical, but believe that in the coming months and years you will see a steady stream of expansions (not all just Battle Maps Wink) coming your way. We will be making some announcements shortly, in September, once the BattleLore transition is under way. We will also publish a full schedule of the expansion and base game reprint shortly.

What does this mean for other games?
We have a number of exciting new games which we will announce in the coming months. Stay tuned!

I am angry/upset/concerned and have some other unanswered questions. What should I do?
Please post your questions on the BattleLore forum on our web site, after this message, and we will do our best to answer them.
