This is the first I'd heard about it...

I hope that includes current games - INWO, Ogre, In Nomine (it's me - you knew that one would be on the list, right?), TOON, Car Wars, and other older SJGames products are just as deserving of support as the newer non-Munchkin games are, especially if the company's desire to ride the long tail is at all serious. You won't get follow-up sales if nobody remembers the games, after all.

I don't know how much freelance editing SJGames contracts out nowadays, but I know you used to work that way with some products. (looks at copy of In Nomine: You Are Here that was a gift from the book's freelance editor.) It might be worth trying the freelance-editor route with the smaller lines, letting the in-house editing staff concentrate on the big sellers and new products. (Edit: Of course, that's just a possibility and suggestion - until somebody does that business analysis SJ wants done, we won't know whether this is a good idea.)
