With Days of Wonder’s reputation as a premier publisher, Asmodee continues to build and strengthen its game portfolio, most notably with the addition of the Ticket to Ride family of games. It will also benefit from Days of Wonder’s digital games development expertise.

Asmodee will lend its network of studios and increased access to ensure broader international distribution for Days of Wonder products. As the UK arm of Asmodee, Esdevium will continue to supply a full range of Days of Wonder products.

Stéphane Carville, Asmodee CEO, said: “I’m thrilled that such a successful publisher as Days of Wonder has decided to join Asmodee Group. By combining forces, we’ll be able to further our great company project – providing great titles to the gaming community and developing the game market across all borders.”

Days of Wonder, with over 5m total games sold, will continue to operate with its current team as an independent brand and studio within the Asmodee Group.
