Same situation in India

Check this out for an excellent article on how Hasbro is dominating the worldwide boardgaming industry. It is sad that the wonderful games that all of us geeks are enjoying just does not see the light of day in the mainstream stores.

As for the situation in India it is the same. The elephant here is called “Funskool”. a huge behemoth that licences games from Hasbro and sells them all over the country.
