Roseville, MN based Fantasy Flight Publishing was founded in 1995 by its CEO, Christian T. Petersen. Since the release of its first game product (Twilight Imperium) in 1997, the company has been doing business as Fantasy Flight Games ("FFG"). Since that time, FFG has grown to become one of the biggest names in the hobby games industry, being a marketplace leader in board games and maintaining strong businesses in the card game, roleplaying game, and miniature game categories.
FFG is known for its quality of game components (often enhanced with highly detailed plastic miniatures and beautiful artwork), innovative gameplay, professional dedication to customer service, and a cutting-edge online presence providing information and support for its many products.
FFG's best-known titles include games based on licenses such as Star Wars, A Game of Thrones, and The Lord of the Rings, proprietary titles such as Arkham Horror and Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition, as well as re-releases of classic titles such as Cosmic Encounter, Fortress America, and Dungeonquest.
In 2008, FFG formed an exclusive partnership with industry-leading, UK-Based Games Workshop ("GW"), to represent its acclaimed IPs (Warhammer and Warhammer 40K) in the hobby games market, publishing new versions of classic titles such as Talisman and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay as well as original games such as Warhammer: Invasion and Only War.
FFG's business is a global one, with the majority of its revenues generated from international sales.
