ROTTERDAM – Dutch family games producer Jumbo, widely known for the red elephant in its logo, has been sold to the Rotterdam-based European competitor M&R De Monchy. Jumbo is the maker of such widely known games as Mens erger je niet (Man don’t be so irritated) Stratego and Pim Pam Pet. Jumbo’s management will stay on to ensure continuity. In recent times, the company had dropped nearly two thirds of its selection of 1,500 games and pared down its staff from 200 to 120. M&R has been in business for close to forty years and owns or represents major games in various countries.
