We thought it was all over when TSR Games (3), the people who had flip-flopped on whether they were the original TSR Games or just people who snatched up TSR Games (2) trademark (who had to rebrand to Solarian), changed their name to Wonderfiled.
There’s now a press release which says;
- It’s all the fault of the old social media/tech individual; who has been fired.
- TSR Games are trying to get their social media accounts back.
- Ignore any of the horrible things TSR Games (3) said, also ignore what Justin LaNasa and Ernie Gygax’s social media accounts said.
TSR has replaced the individual that was serving as both social media manager and information technology manager for TSR and The Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum. This individual was also the social media manager for Giantlands, Justin LaNasa, and Ernie Gygax.
All posts on all social media accounts for TSR and Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum should be considered invalid.

TSR is in the process of recovering the social media accounts of TSR, The Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum, and the personal Twitter accounts of Justin LaNasa and Ernie Gygax.

“I wish to speak directly to the transgender community regarding this incident. The individual who was speaking to you on Twitter does not represent me or TSR in any way. Trans people are always welcome to play with us. Everyone is welcome at our table.”
There’s a lot to unpack there. Firstly Michael seems to be real. At least there’s a convincing LinkedIn account.
Secondly, once again (and like the now-fired old PR guy did before?), the news has gone out only on PR.com and no other channel.
The TSR.Games site still says Wonderfiled.
Lastly, the old logo is gone, and there’s now a new logo for “TSR – The Game Wizards”.
Ernie Gygax still gave the YouTube interview, which wasn’t the intern pretending to be him. Doubts over whether there really was a nameless person controlling the personal social media accounts of TSR Games (3) founders aside, TSR Games still has an uphill battle ahead of them.
Hat tip to Morrus for noticing the press release. EN World’ coverage of this rolling dumpster fire has been great.
