TOPIC: Asmodee Sold

Asmodee Sold 23 Jul 2018 23:31 #278232

So will this sale decrease the availability of any good games? Are there any publishers that *weren't* acquired by Asmodee?

Asmodee has:

Fantasy Flight
Z-Man
Plaid Hat
Space Cowboys
Days of Wonder
Mayfairs titles

I don't think it will decrease the availability of good games. They have mostly just been riding these brands cash cows these past few years anyway.

Stronghold
Gale Force Nine
AEG
GMT
Academy Games
Level 99
DVG
Victory Point
Renegade
IDW
CMON
Columbia
WizKids
Wizards of the Coast/Avalon Hill
Games Workshop
Pegasus Spiele
Gamelyn Games
Flying Frog
Greater than Games
USAopoly
Cryptozoic
Ares
Upper Deck
Plan B
Mondo...

That’s just off the top of my head. There’s hundreds of publishers.

Yeah, I don’t think there is anything for board game consumers to worry about. And even if PAI closed up shop on all their brands tomorrow, other publishers would buy the cash cow titles.

Some heart, some wargame, some trash, some innovation... I like this list.

Hmm, I think Asmodee has runway clearance for its flight into the sun.

I feel for the employees more than I'm worried about the games. Uba is absolutely right that the games will find new homes.

I was mistaken. Asmodee did terminate some employees months ago. They have continued to cut staff since then. Some of the people that they have let go were there for a long time.

Golly, who saw a pump-and-dump coming?


Oh, right. Lots of us did.


Wish I could go find the chucklefucks on BGG who when all this started years ago were like, "Let's just wait and see what happens."
