Will you be able to win the Princess’s affection?

Z-Man Games are pleased to announce that the essential card game Love Letter will join their catalog! Along with distributing remaining inventory from Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG), they will also reprint current versions of the game that players know and love already.

“We are thrilled to have Love Letter join Z-Man’s diverse catalog,” says Steve Kimball, Head of Studio at Z-Man Games. “This gem of a card game packs a lot of fun in a tiny box (or velvet bag) and fits perfectly with the many other acclaimed card games that have been a hallmark of the Z-Man brand. I’m excited to work closely with Seiji Kanai to help Love Letter reach new audiences and realize its full potential.”

Designed by Seiji Kanai, Love Letter is a quick deduction game in which players will carefully use a cast of characters in the castle to carry a message of love to the Princess. If you can successfully carry your love letter to her before your opponents catch you then you can obtain her affection and ultimately win her heart!

Feb 10, 2018

Asmodee continues to acquire game publishers at an astronomical rate. This time it’s Mayfair and Lookout Games!

From Mayfair;

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.

We would like to take a moment to say – Thank You!

Thank you to the many retailers, reviewers, customers, industry partners, and volunteers, who made us a success over the past 36 years! You helped bring our games to game stores and cafes, conventions, libraries, schools, kitchen tables, backyard patios, family vacations, and more… where thousands of fans have been introduced to this great world of board gaming. Thank you!!
