Decipher sought to rejuvenate the Star Wars CCG mechanics after losing the license in 2001. They created the non-licensed "WARS" in 2004 in an attempt to do just that. A remarkable showing of consumer apathy resulted in the game being placed on 'indefinite hiatus' after less than a year in production. Decipher has since claimed to be attempting to make a major motion picture deal to raise interest.
Decipher has been around since the 1980s through various board games. The motto for Decipher has been: "Decipher: The Art of Great Games".
