Flat River Group, an e-commerce business accelerator, announced today the acquisition of Greater Than Games, the tabletop game publisher, design house and consolidator.
Founded in 2011 and based in St. Louis, Missouri, Greater Than Games publishes tabletop games including Sentinels of the Multiverse, Spirit Island, and Medium.
As a long-time vendor partner of Flat River Group, Greater Than Games has seen steady business growth since their inception and has merged with other established game brands including Dice Hate Me Games in 2015 and acquired publishing rights to Cheapass Games in 2019.
“For the past ten years, we at Greater Than Games have been committed to making high quality games, and to growing and bettering the tabletop gaming industry,” says Paul Bender, president of Greater Than Games.
“I have been interested in working more closely with Flat River Group for several years, and I’m extremely excited to be joining forces with them starting today. I believe that this partnership will let us develop and produce even more games of the high quality for which we strive, and I’m really looking forward to working more on all of our upcoming projects.”
“We are deeply connected to the board game industry as it is one of our strongest vendor categories,” says Matt Stahlin, president of Flat River Group. “Partnering with Greater Than Games is a win-win scenario for both our companies. Greater Than Games has been phenomenal to work with as a vendor and we are excited to take our partnership to the next level.”
Flat River Group made a similar acquisition in 2019 when they purchased Impressions Game Distribution Services.
