OverviewAction Games, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Delaware in 1986 and began life with QuarterPole, its original thoroughbred racing board game. The board game was the basis for the company's first computer game, QuarterPole, developed jointly with MicroLeague Sports under intellectual property license from Action Games. QuarterPole was upgraded to Hooves of Thunder, once again together with MicroLeague Sports. When Microleague ran into corporate difficulty and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, their license for the racing game series was cancelled. Action Games reissued Hooves of Thunder under its own label and has continued the development of the series in an upgrade to QuarterPole Plus.
