Mayfair Games has announced that they are closing their doors forever. Asmodee now owns the rights to both Mayfair and Lookout Games. Here’s the announcement:
SKOKIE, IL – February 9, 2018 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. Moving forward, Mayfair product will continue to be available through previously established distribution channels including Alliance Game Distributors for all sales in the USA to the hobby market and with Esdevium Games now Asmodee UK for the UK market.
Let me just say that I thought Mayfair was a class act, and they will be sorely missed. What will fill that huge Mayfair Games space at GenCon and Origins? I wish everyone at Mayfair the best in their future endeavors.
