Asmodee USA has announced their partnership with 3 publishers: Tabletop Tycoon, Thundergryph Games, and Fantasia Games. Fans will be able to purchase games from the catalogs of Tabletop Tycoon & Thundergryph Games as well as Fantasia Games’ first title at local retailers and online through Asmodee.
Tabletop Tycoon brings several brands to the agreement including Victory Point Games, Starling Games, Flying Meeple, Spark Works and Polyhero Dice. Their catalog includes popular games such as Everdell, Black Orchestra and Nemo’s War as well as lighter games like Blind Spot and Eleminis and a tabletop series based on The Princess Bride.
“I am very excited to join the accomplished company of successful independent publishing studios distributed by Asmodee USA. This will bring our titles (present and future) to a broader variety of outlets so we can continue with our mission of ‘Making the World Better, One Game at a Time’,” said Dan Yarrington, CEO & President of Tabletop Tycoon.
“We’re thrilled to offer Tabletop Tycoon’s games to our retailers and their customers. With titles that family and experienced gamers are sure to love, we hope that everyone will have fun exploring their diverse catalog,” said Andre Kieren, Head of USA Distribution.
Tabletop Tycoon’s games will be available starting April 2, 2021.
Thundergryph Games will also be adding their line-up to the Asmodee catalog throughout 2021. You’ll be able to purchase English editions of strategy games such as Tang Garden, Spirits of the Forest, and Iwari as well as Hats and Rolling Ranch. Thundergryph will also be introducing their Matchbox Collection which offers “portable, rich gaming experiences that can be played solitaire or with others in 20 minutes.”
“Asmodee shares Thundergryph Game’s commitment to growing relationships and connecting family and friends, one game at a time,” said Andre Kieren, Head of USA Distribution. “Our team is looking forward to sharing their imaginative line of games with
our retail partners.”
“Asmodee has given us the warmest welcome as our new English distribution partner, and we already feel like part of the family,” commented Gonzalo Aguirre Bisi, Founder and President of Thundergryph Games. “This important relationship will help us grow
professionally as a board game publisher. We are extremely excited to unveil our plans for 2021 together.”
Lastly, but not leastly (I’ll see my self out for that one), Asmodee USA has an exclusive English language distribution agreement for Endless Winter: Paleoamericans, the premiere title from Fantasia Games. Designed by Stan Kordonskiy (Rurik, Lock Up) and developed by Jonny Pac (Coloma, Sierra West), it is a euro-style worker placement game where players develop their tribes from nomadic hunter-gatherers in 10,000 BCE to prosperous tribal societies.
“We are proud to distribute Fantasia Games’ first title,” said Andre Kieren, Head of USA Distribution. “Endless Winter: Paleoamericans seamlessly blends two favorite genres, worker placement and deck building, and we’re certain it will become a game shelf staple
for tabletop fans.”
“After a whirlwind year of launching Fantasia Games and a successful Kickstarter for our first game, we’re thrilled to partner with Asmodee and continue the momentum of Endless Winter: Paleoamericans,” said Head of Studio, Yorgo Tsalamanis.
Endless Winter: Paleoamericans and its expansions, Rivers & Rafts, Cave Paintings and Ancestors, will be available starting Winter 2021. Retailers that are part of Asmodee USA’s Best Sellers Program who pre-order Endless Winter can qualify for the special Mammoth Module, a limited expansion from the original Kickstarter.
