About 1A Games

1A Games was established in order to carry on the Tide of Iron board game series originally created by Fantasy Flight Games and licensed to 1A in 2013 [read the press release]. 1A also plans to develop a series of railroad games (hence the military and railroad motifs in the 1A logo). In addition, 1A acquired the rights to Lombardy Studios and will publish a series of history books under that imprint that will complement and support the game lines.
