Jack Herman and Jeff Dee co-created the classic 1979 superhero tabletop role-playing game Villains and Vigilantes back in 1979. They started Monkey House Games in 2010 when they learned that V&V’s original publisher, Fantasy Games Unlimited Inc., had ceased to exist in 1991 and that the publishing rights had reverted to them at that time.
Unfortunately, the old publisher’s former president was not willing to let go and so they have become embroiled in a lawsuit. The claim that the publishing rights reverted to them has been upheld in court, but their opponent is still fighting over the trademark to the game’s name. They’ve been fighting for their rights for several years, and frankly they need more money in order to carry this battle to a final victory. If you’ve enjoyed their game, or simply support creators’ rights, then they need your help.
