While the rest of the world laughs at our pathetic Milton Bradley and Parker Brothers crapfest boardgames, one American company is actually making decent and respectable games. This company is Fantasy Flight Games. Incorporated in 1995 as Fantasy Flight Publishing, they started out printing graphic novels in a tiny operation. They almost went under a couple of times, until the book publisher decided to wing out a game called Twilight Imperium. Floodgates opened, and the company continually puts out quality materials and Board Games.

Another thing FFG is known for is destroying rainforests, because practically everything they produce that isn't a straight-up RPG makes extensive use of cardboard tokens and counters for as many gameplay mechanics as possible. They also have a fondness for non-standard specialist dice which are only useful in the game they came with, by virtue of using a limited set of unevenly distributed symbols instead of numbers.

As of 14th November 2014, FFG has been bought out by Asmodee (Source: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/138631-Fantasy-Flight-Games-Acquired-by-European-Asmodee-in-Board-Game-Merger)

As of February 2017, FF's license to GW IPs will expire, and all of the current games will cease to be sold. Depending on who you ask, this is either because Games Workshop wants to whore out their RPG license to everyone the same way they do for video games, or because FFG has the Star Wars license and anything GW makes is peanuts compared to what the Mouse is giving them. That, or GW is jealous that X-Wing dethroned 40K as the best-selling miniatures game in North America Or maybe because Asmodee is a direct competitor to GW, and having your opponents make money off your licensed products is an incredibly stupid idea. Actually, according to GW they are a model company, and Asmodee certainly does not compete in that market; in reality, as we all know, GW is a game company, but Asmodee does not sell any tabletop minis games.

They also are known for not proofreading their RPG materials beyond running them through spellcheck. Seriously, these things make English teachers queasy.
