Blackball Games has recently acquired the AE line-up of games previously ran and designed by Darkson Designs. Matthew Hope, designer of the original AE: WWII ruleset, left Darkson Designs to form his own company, Blackball Games.
Recently though, talks between Darkson Designs and Blackball Games, led to the release of the AE lines to Blackball Games.
Blackball Games will continue producing and selling rules and models for both lines, AE: WWII and AE: Bounty and currently have a small stock of models and books available in their online store.
The future looks bright for AE!
