Passport Game Studios partners with Granna in Canada

Everett, WA; Warsaw, Poland – May 9th, 2017. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Passport Game Studios announced today that they have updated their distribution partnership with Poland based Game Manufacturer and Publisher, Granna Sp. z o.o. such that Canadian distributors may now procure CV, CV: Gossip and CVLizations from Passport for distribution sales in Country.

Passport has been Granna’s partner for the CV line of games since late 2015 however until this update, Canada was not a territory Passport could provide their games to.  With this update, Scott Morris, President of Passport Game Studios, is very excited to bring these great games to new customers in North America.  “CV, its expansion Gossip, andCVLizations are three very fun games.  While CV and CVLizations provide different game experiences in the same artistic world, they both deliver fun and strategic gameplay along with a narrative that is driven from the player’s actions, making each game unique, fun, and memorable.  I’ve long enjoyed the CV line and after having much success with it already in our partnership with Granna, we’re excited to introduce these games to a new region through our great distribution partnerships in Canada.”

In CV, players compete to develop the best life story, or Curriculum Vitae, that will see them land jobs, make friends, forge relationships, and acquire cars, houses, and take worldwide trips!  Each game tells a story based on each player’s choices, making each play uniquely different.  CV: Gossip, an expansion to CV, introduces new ways for players to fight bad luck, along with introducing rumor cards that can be played into other player’s tableaus. In CVLizations, players take the role of a leader of a tribe, destined for happiness where you must now tell the tale of not yourself, but your tribe, through innovations, tools, buildings and ideologies.
