Published: January 8, 2016
On Jan. 7, Asmodee North America procured the English-language rights to the Catan game from Mayfair Games Inc. Catan is a German board game with available expansion packs, which have sold a combined 23 million copies worldwide in the last two decades.

With this addition came the development of Catan Studio Inc., the newest creative unit in the Asmodee company. Mayfair Games will help with the development of Catan Studio Inc. and will assist Asmodee with the promotion of the Catan brand. The two companies will continue to coordinate the 2016 Catan tournament schedule, Catan Day 2016 and the 2016 Catan World Championship.

Mayfair Games, Inc. is continuing to do business as an independent company, publishing both their own merchandise as well as Lookout Games products. All of their distributor and retail terms are remaining the same.
