Mayfair Games to wind down from game publishing, Asmodee North America to acquire assets

So long, sweet prince: The publishers of classics such as The Settlers of Catan and Bang have decided to shutter its game publishing business after thirty-six years. The company has sold its games to Asmodee North America, who will continue to distribute the publisher’s games.

As of today, the management team at Mayfair Games, Inc. announces we will wind down game publishing. After 36 years, this was not an easy decision or one we took lightly, but it was necessary. Once we had come to this conclusion, we knew we had to find a good home for our games which is when we reached out to Asmodee.

We are pleased to announce that we have sold our games to Asmodee North America, who have acquired all the assets of Mayfair Games, Inc. This acquisition includes the product line for both Mayfair Games, Inc and Lookout Games, GmbH.

Moving forward, Mayfair product will continue to be available through previously established distribution channels including Alliance Game Distributors for all sales in the USA to the hobby market and with Esdevium Games now Asmodee UK for the UK market.

The future of Mayfair Games’ classic titles seems to be secure for now, and you can contact Asmodee North America for more information. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
