March 2, 2005 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc., makers of the popular Mage Knight™, HeroClix® and MechWarrior® collectable miniatures games (CMGs), is proud to announce the release of Pirates of the Crimson Coast™, a standalone expansion for the Pirates of the Spanish Main™ constructible strategy game™ (CSG).

“Pirates of the Crimson Coast introduces several exciting new game play elements,” said Jordan Weisman, WizKids® CEO. “A new faction – the French – has joined the race for treasure, and new schooner ships make for faster battles on the open seas.” Additionally, forts protect players’ plunder, and three new kinds of terrain can replace islands, with treacherous consequences for the unprepared sailor.

Pirates of the Crimson Coast can be played as a standalone game or as an expansion for Pirates of the Spanish Main, the best-selling CSG. Each Game Pack (MSRP $3.99) contains everything one person needs to play a basic game, including a ship, crew, complete rules of play, a terrain feature/island and a die. Additional Packs will expand a player’s collection. Parrots and monkeys not included.

Founded by 20-year game-industry veteran Jordan Weisman, WizKids is a Seattle-based game developer and publisher dedicated to creating tabletop games driven by imagination. Its Mage Knight, MechWarrior and HeroClix CMGs are among the most successful games on the market today, and the company has sold hundreds of millions of figures worldwide.
