The iconic Mayfair Games has been sold to Asmodee North America. The company said;
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.
Two years ago Mayfair sold rights to Settlers of Catan for the English language to Asmodee. This feels like the natural conclusion of that deal.
