Alderac Entertainment Group, or AEG, is a publisher of role-playing game, board game, and collectible card game products. AEG was formed by Jolly Blackburn[1] in 1993 and is based in the city of Ontario, California. Prior to getting into their current markets, AEG was involved in hobby gaming magazines, with their first product the magazine Shadis (winner of the 1994, 1995, and 1996 Origins Awards for Best Professional Gaming Magazine[2][3][4]).

Including the three for Shadis mentioned above, AEG products have garnered eight Origins Awards (see the individual articles noted below for more details).

In 2009, AEG entered the board games market with 10 new board game releases. Notable successes include Thunderstone and Smash Up.
