Founded in 2000 by Jordan Weisman, Wizkids focused on creating games that were simple and fast playing. One of their most notable achievements was the Clix dial. Instead of complex tables and charts, Clix dials provided all of a unit's stats on the figure's base. As figures took damage, these stats values would change by rotating the base. Mage Knight, HeroClix, Mechwarrior, and Crimson Skies were some of the games to use the patented Clix Dials. Later in its life, Wizkids focused heavily on licensed games based on Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Halo, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Wizkids was purchased by Topps in 2003 and as sales dropped, it was closed in November 2008. Eventually, the Wizkids name and some of its properties were sold to the NECA in late 2009.
