For quite some time now, Z-Man Games has released the English language editions of hits like Terra Mystica, A Feast for Odin and Gaia Project from German publisher Feuerland Spiele. This partnership is now coming to an end:
Since 2012, Z-Man Games has worked with Feuerland Spiele to bring their excellent games to the English- and French-speaking markets, and it has been our privilege to support such beloved titles as Terra Mystica, A Feast for Odin, Gaia Project, and more. It is with a feeling of gratitude that we announce that we’re returning the English and French rights to these games to Feuerland.
Frank Heeren, Feuerland’s founder and owner, has been a longtime partner of Z-Man Games, from our F2Z days through the present. Back when Terra Mystica was first released, it was common for regional publishers to seek out foreign counterparts to localize and import their games for overseas markets. As the tabletop games industry has continued to grow and evolve in the years since, including the rise of a vast distribution network, publishers that were once considered regional now have access to international channels to bring their games to any part of the world.(Source: Z-Man Games website)
Hopefully, this means that the availability of the English editions will get better here in the UK. Especially getting stock for some of the expansions for A Feast for Odin or Terra Mystica was a struggle most of the times.
