Wizards of the Coast is an American games publisher founded by Peter Adkison in 1990 just outside Seattle, WA. The company mainly publishes table top games in the fantasy and science-fiction genres.
Wizards of the Coast started as a basement-run RPG publisher and popularized the collectible card game genre thanks to the success of Magic: The Gathering. They are also known for publishing the Dungeons & Dragons RPG after purchasing the original D&D developer TSR in the mid-1990s. Until 2003, Wizards published the licensed Pokémon Trading Card Game.
Theyalso publish novels based on games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and Legend of the Five Rings.
Wizards of the Coast has been a subsidiary of Hasbro since 1999.
