Christian Petersen, president and CEO of Fantasy Flight Games, introduced 1A Games to a standing-room-only crowd of retail stores, distributors, and game industry people at FFG’s Keynote address today. It was the first in a series of presentations by FFG at the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) 2013 Trade Show at the Bally’s Casino in Las Vegas. Petersen announced to the group that the Tide of Iron World War II board game series has been licensed to Dana Lombardy and Bill Jaffe of 1A Games, and he noted that FFG had enjoyed a long and positive relationship with them on the TOI series since 2007.

Dana Lombardy, Chief Creative Officer of 1A Games, gave a few brief remarks and invited everyone to come by the 1A booth in the exhibit hall.

After the Keynote, Dana and Bill were approached by friends whom they have known for many years who congratulated them on their TOI license and expressed interest in working with 1A Games.

The 1A team then set up the new exhibit booth and are tonight preparing the final special hand outs for Wednesday and Thursday.
