Sorry about the lack of cartoons these last weeks. That’ll change very soon. Honest.
Life’s been busy this year. One day, it’ll mean I have some great stories to tell.
Here’s one I can tell now.
PRESS RELEASE – February 13, 2005 For Immediate Release
Rio Grande Joins the Out of the Box Family of Games
Top two names in the game business join forces
Richland Center, Wisconsin – Out of the Box Publishing and Rio Grande Games announce a strategic partnership which will energize the growth of innovative party, card and board games in the U.S. Under the terms of this partnership Out of the Box will offer the entire collection of Rio Grande board games.
Since 1998, Rio Grande Games has enjoyed unparalleled success in delivering the finest European style games to the U.S. hobby games market. Out of the Box Publishing expects to raise awareness for this great line of European style games by opening the doors to the average American family. Rio Grande will continue uncovering “hidden gems” in the European game market – while Out of the Box utilizes its national base of specialty game and toy stores to bring these games to a broader audience.
The fastest growing game company in America, Out of the Box Publishing’s flagship product, APPLES TO APPLES, has been at the forefront of the revival in family gaming since 1999. The addition of Rio Grande games will expand the Out of the Box game line to nearly 200 titles, making Out of the Box one of the largest, and most comprehensive, game companies in America today.
“The Rio Grande line of games represent the best that Europe has to offer,” says Mark Osterhaus, Out of the Box, President. “And we look forward to introducing these easy-to-learn, yet highly-strategic, products to a whole new group of players. Americans are ready and eager for social activities that bring folks back together, and off line from computers and TV.”
“We look forward to working with Out of the Box,” says Jay Tummelson, Rio Grande Game, President. “And offering these games to a wider group of players!”
Since 1999, Out of the Box Publishing has been recognized as an industry leader in the design of award-winning card and board games. Headquartered in Richland Center Wisconsin, Out of the Box Publishing produces a full line of games for the whole family.
