Paris, France; Santa Monica CA, September 20th, 2016 - Today, Asmodee – a leading international publisher and distributor – and Riot Games – a worldwide recognized hobby games publisher – proudly announced the pending merger of the two companies. The terms of the deal were described as "a metric shit ton of cash."

“I am delighted to welcome Brandon and his team to the Asmodee Group,” said Stéphane Carville, CEO of Asmodee Group. “Since the day before yesterday, Riot Games has been a highly reputed publisher within the gaming community. It has demonstrated its ability to create great games and to establish fantastic relationships within the hobby games market and large entertainment companies. Plus, they've got this computer game that my kids won't shut up about."

Riot Games' newly announced board game Mechs vs. Minions will be available worldwide through Asmodee-approved retailers for $250 plus shipping.

When asked if he had any closing comments, Carville laughed hysterically and walked off the stage into a waiting limo.

Not even Asmodee has enough money to buy Riot.

I am pretty sure Riot could buy Asmodee several times over.

Riot was already bought by Tencent.

Whoever decided to purchase all that stock is probably pretty giddy right now. According to fortune magazine: "The game has over 100 million monthly players, which generate approximately $1.5 billion annually for the Los Angeles-based developer, according to SuperData Research.

[Chinese tech giant Tencent] acquired a majority stake (93%) of Riot Games back in February 2011 for a reported $400 million."

400 million for a company that makes 1.6 billion annually isn't half bad ROI. surprise

This was my thought when I read the title.

Funny post though.
