TSR was an American game-publishing company first founded as Tactical Studies Rules in 1973 by Gary Gygax and Don Kaye to publish Dungeons & Dragons. When Kaye died in 1975, the company was restructured into TSR Hobbies, which became a gaming juggernaut led by its popular flagship title.

In 1983, TSR Hobbies ran into financial difficulties, causing the company to split into four independent businesses, with game publishing and development continuing as TSR, Inc. By 1995, TSR fell behind its competitors in sales, leaving it unable to cover its publishing costs. In 1997, TSR was purchased by Wizards of the Coast, who initially continued using the TSR name for their D&D products, but ultimately dropped the moniker in 2000 when they released the third edition of the gaming system.
