Mayfair Games has just announced in the past few hours that they have come to the difficult decision to end publishing games.

They have reached an agreement with Asmodee North American to buy all of their assets and take over their titles. Here is the official announcement:

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!!

This is very surprising news as we had not seen any indication of these changes happening. It does beg the question of what Gen Con will look like this year as Mayfair Games was a major sponsor.

What do you think of this news?
