Founded in 1995 by CEO Christian T. Petersen, Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) has grown to be one of the premier publishers in the hobby games industry. Having firmly established a reputation for innovative gameplay, immersive gaming experiences, industry-leading customer service, and top quality game components (often enhanced with highly detailed plastic miniatures and beautiful artwork), FFG has maintained an ever growing business in the board game, card game, roleplaying game, and miniature game categories.

FFG’s best-known titles include games based on licenses such as George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, Battlestar Galactica, The Lord of the Rings, Sid Meier’s Civilization, Warhammer: 40,000, and Star Wars, as well as proprietary titles such as Arkham Horror and Descent: Journeys in the Dark.

During the course of the company's history, FFG has published games in over thirty languages and distributed games to more than fifty territories. In 2014, FFG further expanded its international reach by merging with the Asmodee Group of game companies. FFG retains all of its licensing relationships as well as its creative DNA, and the company remains a fully independent publisher within the Asmodee Group.
