Paul Lamond will continue to operate as a stand alone entity; changes in management or staffing are not anticipated.

University Games and Paul Lamond Games have announced the acquisition of Paul Lamond Games by University Games. The acquisition adds to the UK presence of University Games Corporation, a US based game company. University Games is currently active in the UK and is trading as University Games UK.

Richard Wells, managing director of Paul Lamond Games, commented: “I am delighted that we will be part of University Games and this is a great transition for the company. University Games is a great fit for us and has a similar business model in the US to the Paul Lamond way of doing things here in the UK.”

Bob Moog, president of University Games added: “I am so excited to finally be part of Paul Lamond Games. Now when I play classics like Yes/No, Perudo, Who’s In The Bag and What’s Up! I will have great pride that we have added some truly great party games to our range.’’

University Games plans to operate Paul Lamond as a stand alone entity and does not anticipate any changes in management or staffing. “This is another step in our efforts to find talented management and strong product lines to build University Games into a global player in the games and puzzle market” said Bob.
