Template:Infobox Company Mayfair Games is a publisher of board and roleplaying games in the United States and United Kingdom. They also license German-style board games and publish them in English, most notably the Settlers of Catan series licensed from Kosmos.
In 1993, Mayfair was sued by TSR, Inc., who argued that Mayfair's "Role Aids" line of game supplements, advertised as compatible with AD&D, violated their 1984 trademark agreement. While the court found that some of the line violated their trademark, the line as a whole did not violate the agreement, and Mayfair continued publishing the line until the rights were bought by TSR.
In 1997, most of Mayfair was bought by Iron Crown Enterprises and restarted as Ironwind, Inc. A warehouse was purchased by a dice company. Their RPG system, MEGS, ended up in the hands of Janet Bromley.
