Moose Games, the gaming division of the Moose Toys brand, announced the acquisition of the Worst-Case Scenario license from the game developer, All Things Equal, and licensor, Quirk Productions. Quirk oversees the licensing rights to Worst-Case Scenario and has entered a long-term licensing deal with Moose Toys for exclusive global rights to sell Worst-Case Scenario games, including the original game and a newly developed adults-only version, effective immediately.  

 "This partnership stemmed from my and Eric Poses' belief that we could work together to expand the market for Worst-Case Scenario games globally," says David Norman, general manager, Moose Games. "The topic of how to get out of a bad situation has proven fun and engaging as a game for all ages. The new adults-only versions we're bringing to market, alongside the original, are uniquely different. We look forward to working with Quirk to introduce new variations of its best-selling card gameplay, beginning this holiday season." 

"Worst-Case Scenario has always been wildly popular – from the original books to the game – and now, in partnership with a giant like Moose Toys, we'll be able to expand the game's audience around the world, allowing even more players to enjoy the cheeky fun of ranking their worst-case scenarios," says David Borgenicht, founder and president, Quirk Productions and creator of the Worst-Case Scenario brand.

Along with the Worst-Case Scenario acquisition, Moose Games has announced a multi-year international licensing deal with Hunt a Killer. Moose Toys will spearhead global sales of Hunt A Killer's retail mystery games under its Moose Games division, giving Hunt A Killer immediate international distribution through new retail channels. This deal diversifies Moose Games' growing titles portfolio while simultaneously expanding Hunt A Killer's reach into overseas markets. 

"We couldn't have found a better partner to help us realize our international growth potential," says Ryan Schuman, senior director, retail, Hunt A Killer. "We are thrilled to reach international retail markets and Moose Toys will now have new products for its customers. We couldn't be happier or more excited to work with Moose Games, and they will be a great partner in the years to come." 

Hunt A Killer will be distributed immediately by Moose Games in the U.K. and Australia, with more significant global retail expansion planned for the coming years. The current deal excludes distribution in the U.S. and Canada.
