HeroQuest 25th Anniversary Project Pulled Down by Kickstarter Because of "Intellectual Property Dispute"

Thanks to daffadu for updating the original post with this latest bit of news:
"This is a message from Kickstarter Support. We're writing to inform you that a project you backed, Heroquest 25th Anniversary, is the subject of an intellectual property dispute. 
The project has been removed from public view until the dispute is resolved, which can take up to 30 days. The project’s funding and the countdown to its deadline have been stopped. If the project becomes available again, the countdown will continue and the new deadline will extend past the original deadline for as much time as the project was unavailable.

Am I surprised? No.

Do i expect it to get resolved anytime soon? Maybe for the 26th Anniversary...

    Sorry for the inconvenience . Gamezone Miniatures Design and Moon were in talks and negotiating an agreement between both parties.

    Moon Design presented a precautionary CyD two days ago. Moon Design understand that their interests about the brand in USA Heroquest could see harmed. Although we are distributing or selling any products or are in USA territory . The talks between the two were flowing agreement in which both parties we would be benefited. Agreement to ensure project progress smoothly in KS meanwhile . And also allow us to offer next product in our stores also USA year.

    The Moon Design CyD was on hold , but on the table, as an element of negotiation. We understand that from Gamezone become effective may be due to an error. Since both were coming to agreement . This agreement would mostly benefit USA fans , be open to physical distribution to stores. This temporary suspension hurts us both sides, both as Moon Design Gamezone Miniatures .

    We're as surprised as you, did not expect the day of Thanksgiving brought us this very desagradabale win situation. On a day like today is being complicated contact Moon Design. We are trying to fix it, to resume the project where it was. And fortunately, further strengthened .

    Thank you. Dionisio .
