Wonder Forge told ToyNews last year it plans to grow its UK business.

“We’re excited about this strategic investment from Ravensburger,” said Chrisman. 

“Ravensburger’s longstanding tradition of product excellence, their company values, and their commitment to developing quality play experiences makes them an excellent partner to our business.”

Clemens Maier, a Ravensburger board member responsible for the US market, added: “We are invested in helping Wonder Forge grow. We believe in the team, their award-winning approach to game design, and their commitment to innovation.”
