The following fax arrived at work, with the familiar GW corporate logo and header at the top of it:

"Good morning,

On April 1st, Hasbro Incorporated, parent company of Wizards of the Coast, purchased a majority share and controlling interest of Games Workshop Group PLC. This is exciting news for the gaming industry, as the leading manufacturer of role-playing and collectible card games and the leading manufacturer of miniature games have now been consolidated into the same family.

What does this mean for the staff of Games Workshop? It means that your stores are now able to expand their product ranges to offer more than just Games Workshop products. Soon, retail staff will be able to demo not only Warhammer games, but also run intro games and tournaments of Magic the Gathering, and Pokémon the Trading Card Game.

By bringing these amazing worlds together, Hasbro / WotC is presented with a whole host of new possibilities... one which the front line sales staff of the existing Games Workshop retail stores are well positioned to deliver.

Let me be the first to say, welcome to the fold!

Sincerely,

April Phules
CEO Hasbro Gaming Division"

Makes sense.

I always thought 40k should have been on the same shelf as connect four and guess who.

Only about the 10th year in a row that this gag has been attempted. Would be good to see something original.

It does seem like a cut and paste from history. After all, I'm fairly sure WotC doesn't run the Pokemon TCG any more and hasn't for many years.
