WizKids logoWizkids has just announced that Zev Shlasinger, formerly of Z-Man Games, has joined the company to head up a new board game unit.

“I plan to continue to bring original and unique ideas to market with the help of the WizKids team,” said Shlasinger. “They are very serious about building a board game business and are not afraid of good, fun, original ideas. In addition, WizKids has an amazing portfolio of licensed properties to enhance their board game presence in the industry. I think our combined qualities make a formidable team.”

It’s a pretty interesting move, and I’m hoping to see Zev again at Connecticon this year to see how it goes.
