Asmodee USA and Lucky Duck Games Sign Distribution Deal
Roseville, MN – JANUARY 13, 2023. Asmodee USA and Lucky Duck Games are pleased to announce they have entered into a distribution agreement that will bring Lucky Duck’s games, including Chronicles of Crime and Flamecraft, to multiple sales channels in the United States.
Under this new agreement, Asmodee USA will distribute Lucky Duck Games’ products exclusively to mass market channels and e-commerce outlets, such as Amazon, Target.com, Walmart.com and Miniature Market. Asmodee USA will also distribute titles to hobby and toy & gift independent stores in a non-exclusive capacity.
Founded in 2016, Lucky Duck Games is best known for their innovative, digital hybrid board games that merge both traditional aspects of tabletop games with digital apps. Asmodee USA’s Hobby and Toy & Gift customers will be able to purchase Chronicles of Crime, Kids Chronicles, Destinies and more, offering stores a wider choice in how they stock Lucky Duck’s products. Additionally, through this new distribution partnership the award-winning Chronicles of Crime, a cooperative, criminal-investigation game, will be coming to Target shelves in the Spring 2023 season.
“Asmodee USA is thrilled to add the Lucky Duck Games to our portfolio of distributed games. Our sales teams across all channels are excited to bring these titles to stores across the country,” comments Julien Sharp, GM / Country Manager of Asmodee USA.
"At Lucky Duck Games, we strive to spark joy and happiness around everyone's gaming tables", says Scott Morris, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Lucky Duck. "This exciting new partnership with Asmodee offers two great benefits for us and our partners; For Lucky Duck, our games will be discovered by new consumers in new markets while at the same time, for our established hobby retailers supporting our games in their stores, Asmodee will be a new distribution choice, providing more options for them to acquire our games and be successful with them in their stores."
