Hasbro bolsters games portfolio with three new acquisitions

Snake Oil, Hex Casters and Acquire are now part of the Hasbro family.

Hasbro has boosted its games portfolio with the acquisition of three new titles: Hex Casters, Acquire and Snake Oil.

Aquire sees players compete with other venture capitalists to build Saxon City and own majority shares in the most lucrative corporations while Hex Casters - the result of Hasbro and Indiegogo's Great Game Challenge 2015 - is a fast-paced card game with hexes that have rules, and defense cards that protect players from them.

Elsewhere, Snake Oil, previously with Out of the Box Publishing, sees one player be the “customer” while the rest of the players are "salesmen" trying to convince the customer to purchase their product over the others.
