D&D Minis Game to be “Privatized” January 12, 2009

You might have caught wind of the fact that even though D&D minis are still going to be made, they are dropping the skirmish game aspect of it.  In other words, the minis will officially be only an accessory to the RPG from WotC’s perspective.

However, what you might not know is that they’ve granted a player group a sort of exclusive right to continue on the skirmish game as some sort of licensee.  The DDM Guild group will continue to create new content for the skirmish game for the new figures, as well as handle the organized play aspects of it.

I wish them a lot of luck.  For inspiration, I hope they have seen what the  Star Wars CCG Player’s Committee has accomplished in a similar vein with their virtual sets.  The D&D folks will have the advantage of actually having new figures continuing to release for the foreseeable future, so there future looks bright if they can get everyone on board early.

Finally, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out the hard work put in by the UnOfficial JoeAttacktix Figure Mod Committee to do much the same with the Attacktix game.
