Default The End has Arrived

Games Workshop Bought By Wizards of the Coast By DAVID M. HERSZENHORN
and VIKAS BAJAJ
Published: April 1, 2008

ENGLAND - Gaming company Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of
Hasbro, Inc. has agreed to buyout the British based miniatures company
Games Workshop today after falling stock prices have reached a record
breaking low. A spokesman from Games Workshop says "both companies have

reached an agreement and will continue to produce excellent games." The

company is no stranger to seeking help from outside sources, obtaining
the rights to book and movie franchise The Lord of The Rings.
"Obtaining
The Lord of the Rings range was a huge success, the movies boosted
sales
and brought in a new generation of gamers. Unfortunately, that wave has

passed and we were forced to seek new opportunities."

Under the terms of the deal, many of Games Workshops developers have
been replaced by WotC employees causing a stir within the gaming
community. When asked for comment games developer Jervis Johnson
replied
"They're afraid of change which is understandable. We're going in a new

direction with the games and Wizards will help us achieve that. We're
looking to appeal more to the average gamer, Warhammer is after all a
children's game. The people at Wizards have a lot of experience and we
welcome their ideas."

I'll admit, you got me there.

Well done - might have been late, but it got me until I scrolled down.
