Decipher.jpg

Decipher, Inc. is an American company that produces several collectible card games. Their headquarters is in Norfolk, Virginia, USA.

Decipher was originally founded by Warren Holland in 1983 as a games producing company. Their first project was to launch the successful How to Host a Murder line of party games. Shortly after that, they purchased the license for Pente from Parker Brothers, and started to produce that game as well, maintaining a position in the games market.

Ten years later, a new market of gaming was beginning with the introduction of collectible card games (CCGs). Seeing the opportunity in this market, game designers Tom Braunlich and Rollie Tesh (both former Pente world champions) conceptualized a media license-based CCG, and in November 1993 approached Decipher with the idea.[3] The following month, Decipher acquired the license from Paramount to create a CCG based on Star Trek: The Next Generation. In August 1994, the new game was previewed for the first time at Gen Con, and in November 1994 it was officially released.
