Asmodee UK acquires Coiledspring Games

Asmodee UK has purchased UK games distributor Coiledspring Games.

The change in ownership, which is effective immediately, sees Coiledspring join the Asmodee Group of games companies across the world.

Founded in 2004 with just one game and puzzle, Coiledspring has gone on to become a leading name in UK games distribution, carrying a wide range of products also including jigsaws, puzzles and soft toys.

Following the acquisition, Coiledspring will continue to operate as a separate entity, run at arm’s length from Asmodee UK’s current operations.

Asmodee UK’s managing director, Steve Buckmaster, said: “We are delighted to welcome Coiledspring Games to the Asmodee group. We have always thought very highly of the team and the work they do, so it’s great to have them on board with us.”

Coiledspring’s Roger Martin, added: “We are very excited to be joining the Asmodee Group and I am sure this will bring with it some big opportunities for Coiledspring Games. Being part of Asmodee presents us with a fantastic platform for future business.”
