Asmodee Gets a Ticket to Ride
This is news you might have expected to be announced at Gen Con, but a little over a week since the convention has ended it has been announced that Asmodee has acquired Days of Wonder in a merger. Days of Wonder will now be a wholly owned subsidiary of Asmodee.
That means Asmodee will now be adding to their line of games hits such as Ticket to Ride and Small World. This gives Asmodee a bigger presence in the U.S. game market as well as Days of Wonder’s digital game expertise. The company has found massive success with their Ticket to Ride app.
Asmodee’s North American and European operations are quite different. In North America, the company is the publisher for it’s own games. In Europe, the company owns distribution companies and sells more than just its own games.
