Following up on our recent video, this statement is to confirm the following points regarding Goodman Games and our former relationship with Judges Guild.
To start with, we are disgusted and disheartened by the antisemitism, bigotry, racism, homophobia, and transphobia exhibited by the current owners of Judges Guild.
Goodman Games has stopped selling our previous Judges Guild products through all distribution channels.
Judges Guild will no longer receive income from Goodman Games products now that sales of their titles have ceased.
We have one remaining product to release, which is a collector’s edition focused on the works of Jennell Jaquays. Jennell’s story is one quite different from the views espoused by Bob Bledsaw Jr. Judges Guild and Bob Bledsaw Jr. have agreed to receive no royalties of any kind from this title. To say it bluntly: Bob Bledsaw Jr. and Judges Guild will not profit from the Judges Guild Deluxe Collector’s Edition Vol. 2 focused on the works of Jennell Jaquays. Goodman Games will match 20% of the proceeds of this title with donations: 10% to the Anti Defamation League and 10% to GLAAD. The funds that would have been used for a Judges Guild licensing fee will be included in this donation, as requested by Bob Bledsaw Jr.
After this final volume, we have no plans to release future Judges Guild titles.
We are deeply saddened and frankly horrified by the views espoused by Bob Bledsaw Jr.
