White Goblin Games acquires Chronicle Games as a design studio
2e Exloërmond – As of October 1, 2017, Chronicle Games will become part of White Goblin Games and will continue its operations as a studio label. Chronicle Games is a publisher of board games, among which are the Dutch licenses of Dream Home, What’s Up and 10 Minute Heist: The Wizard’s Tower.
Chronicle Games is a nationally oriented publisher of board games, noted for its publication of high-quality games with great replayability. “Besides a game needing to be fun, it is also of great importance to us that the quality of the rules is topnotch and the artwork is exquisite,” according to Michiel Hendriks.
Chronicle Games was founded by Hendriks in 2015 and within a short amount of time has become a respected name in the industry. Hendriks has the ambition to further expand the Chronicle Games formula and the availability of their games, which will now be possible within the network of White Goblin Games. Michiel Hendriks will take on the role of Senior Developer at White Goblin Games, mainly focusing on selection, localization and quality control of the games. “My heart as well as my greatest strength lie in these areas, and I’m delighted to be able to fully focus on bringing great games to The Netherlands,” according to Michiel Hendriks.
With the acquisition – Chronicle Games will be positioned as a design studio within White Goblin Games – the licenses for the games will now become part of White Goblin Games’ portfolio and the publisher will put all their effort into enabling as many people as possible to be able to enjoy Chronicle Games’ games. “Through our network we will be able to take the Chronicle Games concept to a new level. All possible marketing and sales support will be applied for this purpose,” said White Goblin Games’ Johan Kuipers. “In this cooperation the advantages of both companies will be combined, creating a wonderful synergy and new opportunities to explore,” added White Goblin Games’ Jonny de Vries.

This module consists of six upgrade tiles which allow players to upgrade the class cards from the base game.
This module introduces universities, which will be founded in various regions on the board at random times during the game. This will allow the players to score additional points during the game.
