Warlord Games is apparently closing it's doors temporarily for the moment.

Suspect more will follow.

Interesting.

It may be that the smaller independents without employees will stay active, whilst those like Warlord who have 'staff' have to shut as they are a non-essential business.

A one-man-band or maybe family outfit could get away with carrying on.

As long as the postal services are active, and will collect from a business then they could trade.

However if they all shut down, then my bank balance could well improve.  :engel:

You mean they will be using Ouija boards instead of Tarot cards for their business plans from now on?
