Z-Man Games, Inc. is a publisher of games. The company was formed by New Yorker, Zev Shlasinger, in 1999 to bring back Shadowfist, one of the best multiplayer Collectable Card Games ever made. With the success of Shadowfist, Z-Man Games published its first B-Movie card game, Grave Robbers from Outer Space, and from that point on it was decided to continue to make fun, innovative games. In 2001, Z-Man Games has published the Origins Vanguard Award winner, Warchon, a portable game that uses a book as the battlefield and bookmarks as the playing pieces that move and fight on this battlefield.
Cartoon Action Hour, the 1980s action cartoon RPG, was published in 2002 and there are three supplements available. Ideology: The War of Ideas is our first abstract strategy game, and our first in a line of board games. We have also started publishing English language versions of European games, like Primordial Soup (Ursuppe) and Santiago. But we still do original games like Parthenon and Castle Merchants and co-productions like Duel in the Dark, Chang Cheng and El Capitan. We also publish other game-related items like Baby's First Mythos and our Dark-Platypus line of gaming accessories.
After all, games are our business and our pleasure.
