a couple yrs ago Wizkids made some bad decisions and my kids have been following along the story of how it's been going. We were friends with the gameshop owner in town who explained a lot of it to my kids. So they have had some good discussions about running a business (or ruining it). I'll have to let them read this. thanks.

Topps will probably wind up selling WizKids to somebody else
(my money is on Hasborg, of course), but what boggles my mind
is why they'd just close it rather than selling it as an
operating business.
