Statement from Stronghold Games Regarding “Richard Hamblen’s Merchant of Venus”

October 22nd, 2011 by SHG_Stephen

It has come to our attention that Fantasy Flight Games has also announced the reprint of “Richard Hamblen’s Merchant of Venus”, indicating that they have received the sub-license to reprint from a third party.

First and foremost, Stronghold Games bears no ill will towards Fantasy Flight Games over what is a very unfortunate situation. In fact, we have been and will continue to be big fans of Fantasy Flight’s work within the hobby game industry.

Over 18 months ago, we began negotiating with Mr. Richard Hamblen, the designer of “Merchant of Venus”, to procure the license from him to his great game design, finally signing an agreement recently.  Mr. Hamblen believes that the sub-license is solely his to offer, and he has selected Stronghold Games for the reprint.

Stronghold Games and Mr. Hamblen believe that the third party, which sub-licensed “Merchant of Venus” to Fantasy Flight Games, does not have the contractual right to do so without Mr. Hamblen’s permission.

At this time, we are discussing the situation with all parties involved, noting once again that we view Fantasy Flight Games in the highest regard and regret that they have been put into this position.  We are working toward an amicable resolution to this matter.
