IELLO names Flat River Group as its U.S. and Canadian distributor

France-based board game publisher IELLO has appointed Flat River Group (FRG) as its exclusive distributor for the United States and Canada.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Flat River Group,” says Cédric Barbé, managing director of IELLO. “We’ve known Matt Stahlin, president of Flat River Group, for a long time. FRG’s high ambitions for our flagship King of Tokyo and Bunny Kingdom lines by Richard Garfield convinced us that we shared the same vision and strategy.”

The distribution agreement covers the U.S. and Canada (for English language versions of the games).

“This year will be an exciting one, with many new releases,“ adds Laurence Grau, international sales manager at IELLO, “starting with King of Tokyo Monster Box, Get on Board – which is eagerly awaited – and Distant Suns in the first semester, Animals of Baker Street and King of Monster Island in October, a new standalone in the King of Tokyo universe.”

Flat River Group’s Matt Stahlin says: “FRG has sold IELLO products to mass retailers for the last nine years and we have always admired their products. We are proud to be selected as the exclusive North American English language distributor.”
