Mattel buys Blokus, Whac-A-Mole games

According to AP Toy maker Mattel Inc. said Friday it bought Sekkoia SAS, which makes board game Blokus, for undisclosed financial terms.
In a separate transaction, Mattel also acquired the rights to the Whac-A-Mole game from Bob’s Space Racers Inc.
Financial terms of that transaction were not disclosed as well.
Mattel’s purchase of Sekkoia includes Blokus Trigon, Blokus 3D, Blokus Duo, and Blokus Giant.

I wonder if Mattel is going to make a run at challenging Hasbro's dominance in the boardgame sector.
