According to a report on Game Salute News, Rob Daviau, the design genius behind some of Hasbro's best games—including Heroscape and Risk:Legacy—is leaving Hasbro next month. He'll be starting his own board game design and consultation company called IronWall Games. This is terrible news for Hasbro, but excellent news for the rest of the board game community, as Rob's free to design, unfettered from the constraints surely put on him by a large, for-profit company. (The downside is that he won't have that large company's money to help make some ideas a reality. Something like Heroscape from scratch would be almost impossible, I'd imagine.)
We look forward to seeing what Rob has in store for us. Thanks for reading!
