The coming together of these two leaders in tabletop gaming will allow for better service to Canadian retailers and an increase access to popular titles across the country. The acquisition took effect on Aug. 8, and the integration of the two companies will happen over the next several months.

Jayson Pickford will continue to lead the company, and Ross Fleming will stay on as director, Lion Rampant.
