“We’re in a strong position to drive forward”

Paul Lamond’s Richard Wells on mergers, Oi and classic licence success.

Now that we’re half way through 2019, Source catches up with a selection of licensees to find out how the year has been so far, the main challenges and big successes and what hopes they have for the remainder of the year.

Today: Richard Wells, md, University Games and Paul Lamond Games

“The start of 2019 has been exciting but exceptionally busy and challenging for us with the merge of Paul Lamond Games with University Games UK, which has put us in a very strong position to drive forward.

We had a great reaction to the new games and puzzles we unveiled in January at the London Toy Fair – from a licensing perspective the new Oi series of games and puzzles, Pointless and the Disney Classic Winnie the Pooh 1,000-piece puzzles, as well as The World of David Walliams Gangsta Granny board game, have been strongly received and are selling through well.

We also have a number of new licensed products launching in the second half of the year with new board games for both Horrible Histories and The World of Dinosaur Roar and three new educational games starring Roald Dahl’s famous characters Matilda, The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
