Sounds like an interesting development that should benefit both companies. We'll have to see what happens, but I think it could be a good thing for board games as a whole.

Check out this article as well.

I agree with Rasmussen81. I think it could be a good thing. Most folks on BGG seem to think so too... Wink

I see no reason this shouldn't be a good thing

Considering how Eric Hautemont talked publicly of Ticket to Ride competitive online players, I am not sure that everybody is on board with you. (talking about the present only)
This news may explain why Mark was pretty hesitant in his communication.

The ticket to Ride World Championship is far from meeting the standards of a World Championship with such a big prize at stake - the format is a joke-. The webpage is not even updated...

The web version is left abandoned despite the quality of a community gathering international chess and bridge players among other passionate and skilled board game players... Ticket to ride has the potential to be something more than a family game.

It may sound bitter, but that's where we stand at the moment...
Looking for a brighter future...

I have just learnt the news, and I can't help being very very sad about it. When a company is born there is always an idea behind it. Days of Wonder have their own idea too and they have been bringing it to life in a unique way that we admired and loved. Now we learn that the company will stop existing or some other people with some other ideas will stand behind it. It means that the idea we love will be brought to life no more.
