Founded in 2004 in Brussels, by Cédrick Caumont and Thomas Provoost, Repos Production is a Belgian board games’ publishing company, one the most awarded publishers in the world.

“For 15 years we have been successfully exercising our passion: to create the best possible games for young and old alike. The Asmodee Group is a partner with whom we have been working since the beginning of our adventure.

We share the same playful culture and a common ambition to offer the best games to as many people as possible. Through this acquisition we will continue to grow our intellectual property portfolio with world-renowned titles. Within the Asmodee Group’s ecosystem of 14 studios, Repos Production will thus be able to benefit from synergies enabling it to express all its creativity, the hallmark of its identity, by inventing tomorrow’s hits” underlines Stéphane Carville, CEO of Asmodee Group.
Cédrick Caumont is leaving Repos Production to develop an independent studio, Captain Games, combining game publishing and consulting.
