It was reported today at SPIEL 2013 (aka Essen), that Mayfair Games has purchased controlling interest in the German publisher, Lookout Games (known for titles like Agricola and Le Havre). Earlier in the month, Mayfair announced that they would distribute three new Lookout Games titles in the U.S.: Caverna: The Cave Farmers, Bremerhaven and Karnickel. We can see there is more to that now.
Mayfair will immediately start releasing future Lookout Games titles as they become available. Perviously published titles will be brought in after their current licenses expire with their current publishers.
Maryfair’s President, Larry Roznai, stated that Lookout Games will remain and will still do their own game development and artwork.
The only question that remains – Are we going to see a Catan/Agricola crossover?
