Asmodee Announces Brotherhood of the Coast for T.I.M.E Stories

April 24, 2018

Brotherhood of the Coast is the seventh expansion for T.I.M.E Stories, sending you and your fellow players to the 1600s Carribbean, during the age of piracy. Look for Brotherhood of the Coast at your local retailer in the third quarter of 2018! 

Up until now, we know you’ve seen quite a bit. The horrors you faced in Estrella Drive were almost unspeakable. But you’ve proven yourselves capable of handling quite nearly anything—which is why we know you’re up to this next assignment. Now let’s get to the good part: you’ll be traveling to the year 1685, crossing the high seas of the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy. I hope one of you knows how to sail…

We’ve tried to keep this blunder under wraps, but the situation has gone beyond our control, which is the exact reason we’re sending you, agents. Some time ago, four seasoned agents, just like yourselves, were sent to this timeline. Unfortunately, something went awry, and we’ve lost their trace. It’s up to you to track them down and… release them from their receptacles. More details on that at a later date. We’ve seen the way you handle yourselves in the field, and believe you possess the exact skills we need to bring these agents home.

Asmodee Acquires Mayfair and Lookout Games

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!!

Asmodee and Rebel Games Form Partnership

Feb 8, 2018

The Asmodee Group have announced that talks on the takeover of Rebel Sp.  were successful.

Established in 2003 by Piotr Katnik and Pawel Piechota, Rebel is a distributor of board games and accessories, including products from the Asmodee Group and its partners for many years.

The combination of the Asmodee product catalog with Rebel’s capabilities in Poland will certainly translate into the possibility of spreading new games from the Asmodee group partners on this market.

Thanks to this operation, the Asmodee Group will have direct access to the fastest-growing market in Europe worth EUR 95,000,000 (PLN 395,000,000).

“We are happy to strengthen our position on the Polish market through a new level of cooperation with Rebel. We have been partners for over 10 years, but this step will allow us to transfer the release of board games in Poland to a new level.” – Stéphane Carville, general manager of the Asmodee Group.

“We are proud to join the Asmodee Group with which we share the same philosophy: focus on really good games. The Polish market is very demanding and needs top quality products. As part of the Asmodee Group, we will be able to expand and diversify our range of board and card games, thanks to which our offer will have a chance to reach an even larger group of recipients in Poland. ” – Piotr Katnik, CEO of Rebel

3 New Unlock! Adventures Await you from Asmodee Games

Jan 26, 2018

You’ve explored the House on the Hill, escaped the Nautilus, and found the treasure of Tonipal Island in Unlock! Mystery Adventures. But now, three brand new adventures wait for you to test your skills against.

Look for A Noside StoryTombstone Express, and The Adventures of Oz at your local retailer in second quarter of 2018!

The next wave of your favorite Unlock! adventures will soon be here with three new exciting escape experiences ready to be challenged. Professor Noside returns for revenge in A Noside Story, you’ll attempt to keep train robbers away from your precious cargo in Tombstone Express, and you can help Dorothy and her friends escape the Wicked Witch of the West in The Adventures of Oz. Three brand new adventures means three new epic  challenges to take on in Unlock! Secret Adventures, coming soon from Space Cowboys!

Like the six previous Unlock! adventures, each of these new Secret Adventures captures the exciting and challenging puzzles of an escape room and brings it to the tabletop with just a deck of cards and the companion app. While the companion app counts down the time and provides hints along the way, you and a group of your (hopefully) most clever friends have to use deductive logic and reasoning to discover the solutions to escape! Containing the perfect blend of immersive theme, intricate and fluid puzzles, and just one hour to figure out the solution, Unlock! is an action packed thrill ride experience contained in a single box.

 

T.I.M.E. To Get Tubular

Dec 6, 2017

Estrella Drive is now available for T.I.M.E. Stories from Asmodee.

In Hollywood, the ghosts of the past never sleep! Embark on your next adventure into the past with Estrella Drive, the sixth expansion for T.I.M.E Stories. Like all T.I.M.E Stories adventures, you and your fellow players are members of the T.I.M.E Agency, sent to investigate a disruption to the Time Stream. This time, you and your fellow agents are sent to 1982 to investigate a temporal anomaly in a supposedly haunted Hollywood mansion. Please note that Estrella Drive is recommended for mature audiences—certain themes within this adventure may be objectionable to younger players.

Welcome back, agents. Don’t mind the confetti, I’m just getting you in the spirit for your next mission. Take your seats, time is valuable, and you could be embarking on your next mission as early as today—the mission we’ve codenamed Estrella Drive.

You’ve been briefed on the destination of this mission—1980’s Hollywood—and also your objective. Prepare for everything that comes with this setting: partying, loose morals, and other… “adult” content. Once again, agents, I cannot stress this enough—Estrella Drive is meant for mature audiences only. Those not of age should stay back at HQ.

The objective of your mission is to simply observe the temporal loop located in this time period. We aren’t looking to close this loop, merely gain knowledge from it. We’re certain that this mission in particular will prove to be key in studying the complex behaviors Time exhibits.

Through our briefings, we at the agency have worked hard to familiarize you with some of the far out (did I use that right?) receptacles that you can choose to inhabit during your mission. Each of the different receptacles has a particular skill set that might aid you in their own unique way. You’ll need to work together with your fellow agents to choose which characters to inhabit… and you might meet some new ones along the way!

You’re returning to a time of neon colors, shady characters, and confetti—which I still can’t seem to get out of my clothes no matter how hard I try—and I wish you the best of luck, agents. But please remember: you’re not there to alter or tamper with the temporal loop, only to observe. I cannot stress this enough.

Asmodee Announces SONAR

July 30, 2017

In the depths of the ocean, a submarine’s sonar activates: the enemy is near! All hands rush to battle stations—the radio operator tracks the signal intently while the captain charts an intercept course. Deep beneath the waves, a tense battle of submarine warfare is joined…

Asmodee is proud to announce SONAR, a family version of the award-winning Captain Sonar board game.

Launching exclusively at Target, SONAR puts all the excitement of the original into streamlined gameplay for two to four players.

In every game of SONAR, players split into two teams that command opposing submarines. Players navigate their vessels in an underwater game of cat-and-mouse, trying to locate their opponent while avoiding being spotted themselves. Each has the same goal: destroy the enemy!

July 5, 2017

A haunted house. An undersea submarine. Pirate treasure buried on Tonipal Island. Three new adventures and three new chances to escape from certain danger—three new Unlock! adventures are coming soon from Space Cowboys:

Like the three previously released Unlock! adventures, each of these new adventures captures the pulse-pounding excitement and devilish puzzles of an escape room and brings it to your tabletop in a single deck of cards. While the Unlock! companion app ticks away the seconds and offers hints when you need them, you and a group of your friends must use your logic and deductive skills to find the solutions to a series of interconnected puzzles and escape the room. With the perfect mixture of intuitive mechanics, cunning puzzles, and only an hour to escape, each Unlock! adventure is a self-contained experience in a single box.
