Hello,

I am new to these forums and SFR but I registered because I know you guys bought the rights to Dragon Dice™ from Wizards (or Hasboro). I was wondering if I could get advice or any leads on how I could do the same for a game I have been working on that also was previously owned by TSR. The game is called Spellfire. It's an old CCG I want to bring back in a more LCG style format with updated rules and cards. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Zach Moore

Sorry I can't really advise you. From what I understand we were an oddity. The original president had started talking with a friend who worked for tsr before they were ever purchased ( the first time). Now that the company is long gone I doubt you could even get "them" to admit they own the license.

I wish you luck, but there is no magic process I can suggest.

I'm curious, at what point would it become public domain? probably not a decade.

well with the look and feel laws being what they are...

if you did a new game with different rules and different cards and different artwork with a different name... it would be a different game and who cares what they think.

ALL games are similar to some other game.

I would really like to use the Spellfire name though. I know this is a route I can take in the end but being able to use the old icons and name Spellfire would be ideal.
