DANVERS, Mass., Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Winning Moves Inc. (dba Winning Moves USA), a leading maker of specialty games and toys, announced today acquisition of the all-time favorite pig-dice party game brand PASS THE PIGS® from David Moffat Enterprises, LLC, following approval by the board of directors of both firms.
"Acquiring full ownership of PASS THE PIGS® is the next logical step in the growth of the brand and Winning Moves USA," said Philip Orbanes Jr., President of WMUSA. "We are poised to take this great brand into many new arenas."
