GAMETABLE ONLINE ADOPTS WIZARDS’ ONLINE BOARDGAMES
Axis & Allies, Robo Rally and others move to popular gaming site
FLORENCE, MA AUG 18, 2008 - GameTableOnline.com is set to increase its online game offerings as they prepare to incorporate five games from Wizards of the Coast in August. The games include Axis & Allies, Acquire, Guillotine, Robo Rally, and Vegas Showdown and all will be available to play online for free
Over the past year GameTable Online (GTO) has developed these games for Wizards’ website. With Wizards focusing their online efforts on D&D Insider and Magic Online III, GTO offered to assume the hosting duties as well.
“The games we created for Wizards of the Coast are some of the crown jewels of board gaming,” noted Joe Minton, president of GameTable Online. “Being asked to develop them was an honor in itself. Providing a new home for them on GameTableOnline.com is very exciting.”
“GameTable Online did a terrific job of creating online versions of our games,” said Randy Buehler, vice president of digital gaming at Wizards of the Coast. “With GTO’s recent switch from a subscription model to free play (funded via advertising sales), this became a great way to let our fans continue to play our games online, for free and whenever they want.”
With the addition of these games GameTable Online will offer gamers more than 20 online versions of popular tabletop games at their website and shortly many of them on Facebook as well.

That’s good news - it would have been a shame to lose such a good online gaming site.
