Hobby Industry Veteran John Kovaleski to Step Down from Gale Force Nine

Hobby Industry Veteran John Kovaleski to Step Down from Gale Force Nine
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Long-time hobby industry veteran and game designer John Kovaleski told staff last week that he would be leaving Gale Force Nine (GF9) effective October 15, 2018 to focus on other interests outside the company. Kovaleski, 49, founded Gale Force Nine in 1998 and has manned the helm for the past 20 years as the owner and later General Manager after GF9 was purchased by Battlefront Miniatures Ltd.

“After twenty years of navigating GF9 through the ever-changing seascape of my beloved hobby industry, I felt it was a good time to turn over the watch and move on to other opportunities. Tabletop has shown incredible growth over the past two decades and I’ve been fortunate to be a part of it. I am incredibly proud of the company we built, but I’m ready for a new challenge and looking forward to what comes next.”

“To my friends that crewed with me and helped along the way: Jason Buyaki, Aaron Dill, Katie Dillon, Peter Przekop, Lizzie Willick, Charles Woods and the late Sean Sweigart, I offer my eternal thanks and wish you all fair winds and smooth seas.”

During his tenure, Kovaleski provided leadership, creativity and vision on hundreds of tabletop and hobby products including many popular boardgames, expansions, gaming accessories, hobby tools and hobby scenics, just to list a few. Kovaleski was among the first to introduce laser-cut manufacturing to the hobby market, expanded hobby global distribution relations, and helped lead the thematic licensed boardgame category with such fan favorites as Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery, Firefly: The Game, Star Trek: Ascendancy and Dungeons & Dragons: Vault of Dragons.

“After almost fifteen years of working together John will be sorely missed by me most of all and although the choice he has made is one that I fully appreciate and support the place will not the same without him.” said John-Paul Brisigotti CEO Battlefront

TANKS: The Modern Age

The Cold War Just Got Hot!

The widely successful TANKS game is turning the clock forward from World War II to the height of the Cold War. Choose your nation carefully as they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Do you pick the American forces with the old faithful M1 Abrams, Soviet forces and their numerous T-64, the mighty British Chieftain with its heavy armour, the popular German Leopard II and its powerful 120mm gun, or French AMX-30 that has speed to burn.

Or maybe you have a desire to spread your wings and take to the air? TANKS: The Modern Age wouldn't be complete without Helicopters! These fast and nimble machines trade the armour that that their ground pounding friends have for the ability to zip around the battlefield delivering anti-tank missiles from all quarters.

LEGENDARY ENTERTAINMENT AND THE FRANK HERBERT ESTATE AWARD GALE FORCE NINE MASTER TABLETOP GAMING LICENSE

Tabletop role-playing game planned for late 2019 release, with additional original tabletop games from Gale Force Nine and their sub-licensees to follow

BURBANK, CA – August 6, 2018 – Legendary Entertainment and Herbert Properties LLC have reached a multi-year licensing agreement with Gale Force Nine (GF9).  The award-winning game publisher is now set to bring the beloved sci-fi franchise DUNE to the world of tabletop gaming.

“Gale Force Nine has consistently demonstrated a skill and passion for building successful tabletop game series alongside category leading partners and we are thrilled to announce this exciting addition to the Dune licensing program ,” said Jamie Kampel, Vice President of Licensing & Partnerships for Legendary. “Legendary looks forward to a fun and meaningful contribution to this revered legacy property.”

The agreement calls for Gale Force Nine to produce original tabletop games drawing from the full scope of the Dune franchise—spanning the many publications from Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson—along with multiple direct tie-ins with Legendary’s highly-anticipated film from director Denis Villeneuve.

“This is only the beginning of our big plans in tabletop for this captivating franchise,” says John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO of Gale Force Nine. “Dune is a rich and wonderful universe, and we expect to produce an equally expansive and inspired line of games for years to come.”

The full range of tabletop games, including board and miniatures games are slated to hit the market just prior to Legendary’s theatrical release of DUNE in 2020. In addition, GF9 plans to align with other game companies on numerous categories and formats in the future.
