Dallas, TX – Aldie just announced this morning that Boardgamegeek.com is being bought out by Asmodee.  Final terms are still being hammered out.  In an exclusive Google Hangout interview with yours truly, Aldie reassured me that he would still be in charge of the site.

When I emailed my sources at Asmodee, their press contact said: “Nothing will change, we believe BGG serves a great niche in the hobby and we want to support it.”  More news on this merger as it unfolds today…
