January 11, 2006 (BELLEVUE, WA) Paizo Publishing, LLC®, publisher of the officially licensed Dungeons & Dragons gaming magazines Dragon and Dungeon, and the premiere e-commerce site for all things gaming, is pleased to announce today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with James Ernest and Cheapass Games to become the exclusive worldwide sales agent for the entire line of Cheapass Games products.
"I've always been a fan of Cheapass Games," says Lisa Stevens, Chief Executive Officer of Paizo Publishing, LLC. "Now that James and I are working together on Titanic Games, it seemed natural to add Cheapass to the Paizo mix."
Paizo Publishing will begin soliciting orders for new products and backstock in March. Fans of Cheapass Games will be able to buy the complete line of Cheapass products on paizo.com.
Cheapass Games president and head designer James Ernest is also thrilled with the new arrangement. "I think goblins are living in my basement," said Ernest. "Getting all these games out of here will prove it one way or the other."
Paizo Publishing will also demo and sell Cheapass Games' products at trade shows and consumer conventions starting in 2006.
