A win win for computer wargamers: Slitherine and Matrix merge

This just in (although it was a little inevitable since Matrix Games published a version of most Slitherine titles)
"Slitherine Ltd and Matrix Games today announced that they have signed a comprehensive agreement to merge the companies creating the world’s largest wargaming specialist publisher. Both Brands have strong identities and core values and these will be maintained to provide maximum enjoyment and added value to all customers. "

This is a good thing, as it means more power to two great computer war gaming companies that keep the fires alive for us hex based war game lovers.

Slitherine produces the Field of Glory miniatures war game for the computer and Matrix Games saves all our old favorites plus makes their own titles. Either way this is a good merger and will bring more war gamers to the same site where things can be discussed.
