Phalanx and Ares Games announce that the 5-years long master distribution agreement for North America between Phalanx and Ares has terminated, and after a transition period, the two companies are parting their ways amicably.

Starting on May 2nd, Phalanx products in North America will be distributed exclusively by GTS Distribution.

"Ares Games helped us a lot to make our products known and visible on the North American market," declared Waldemar Gumienny, founder and CEO of Phalanx, "and after 5 years working with Ares under a master distribution agreement, our catalog and lines have grown a lot. We now feel ready to establish a more direct presence on the market, through the exclusive deal with GTS Distribution, one of the most important players in the game industry, and we are excited to have GTS supporting us to get our new products - such as Huang - and the reprints of our beloved classics - such as Hannibal & Hamilcar - to the tables of American gamers soon."

"We had a great journey together with Waldemar and all the Phalanx team, and we wish them all the best for the future development of their presence in USA and Canada," declared Christoph Cianci, CEO of Ares Games. "Phalanx’s catalog has become much larger in the past 5 years, and we understand they are now ready to take the next step, with a shorter supply chain to reach their retail customers. We are confident that our friends of GTS Distribution can be a great partner for them."

“We are thrilled to be partnering with a publisher like Phalanx Games in the tabletop gaming industry.” said Patrick Day, Director of Business Development for Gaming at GTS Distribution, “The Phalanx team develop stunning titles like Hannibal & Hamilcar, U-Boot, Huang and many more. Phalanx Games focus on titles that are a blend of rich historical settings and deep mechanics are something the GTS team is pleased to carry and support as a Distributor. We know these are games customers are often asking retailers about and GTS is committed to helping stores have access to the titles they need to be successful so that more Phalanx titles are being played on gaming tables across the United States.”
