July 19, 2004 (SEATTLE) - WizKids Inc., makers of the best-selling HeroClix® and MLB™ SportsClix™ collectable miniatures games (CMGs), is proud to announce that their Mage Knight™ fantasy CMG won the coveted Best Game of 2004 award from Hobby Outlook Magazine.

"We are honored to be presented with the Best Game award," said Jordan Weisman, WizKids® CEO. "We value the opinions of our retailers, and this small token of their appreciation for our efforts means a lot to us." The Hobby Outlook Awards are voted on by members of the Hobby Town USA network of retail stores.

The Mage Knight fantasy CMG received a massive upgrade in 2003, with features such as domains, relics and interchangeable mounts and riders revolutionizing the miniatures gaming world a second time.

The Hobby Outlook Best Game of 2004 award follows a bevy of awards WizKids received at the 2004 Origins International Game Expo, including Game of the Year for Indy HeroClix.

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®, MLB™ SportsClix and HeroClix CMGs are among the most successful games on the market today, and the company has sold hundreds of millions of figures worldwide.
