A pair of Canadian tabletop gaming giants have come together.
Asmodee Canada has acquired Ontario-based Lion Rampant Imports, one of the largest distributors of hobby adventure games in the territory. The acquisition took effect on Aug. 8, and will increase the ability of games to families across the country, and is intended to provide better service to Canadian retailers.
“I have a great deal of respect for Ross Fleming and his company, Lion Rampant and we are thrilled to bring them into the Asmodee family,” says Jayson Pickford, Asmodee CEO. “There is a lot of synergy between the two companies, with Asmodee being particularly strong in Quebec and among major retailers, and Lion Rampant having a solid reputation with the core and hobby segment in Western Canada. Bringing them together will allow us to leverage these assets, strengths and best practices and improve service to retailers from coast to coast.”
Asmodee is known for games such as Catan, Pandemic, and Ticket to Ride. Lion Rampant is the Canadian distributor of games including Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, Codenames, Ghost Blitz, and others.
