Thames & Kosmos


Thames & Kosmos UK (T&K UK) was set up in 2010 to operate as the exclusive distributor for the European English Language science kits of German-based publishing house, Franckh-Kosmos Verlags-GmbH (Kosmos). In 2015, T&K UK added Kosmos board games to their ever-growing catalogue, and in the past few years board games have now grown to account for more than a third of T&K UKs overall turnover.

In 2017 T&K UK decided to separate the two sectors and establish board games under Kosmos Games, while keeping in with the board game branding. In March 2018 Kosmos Games partnered with The Devir Group, a board game publisher and distributor founded in Brazil in 1987. Devir have established roots in the imaginative universe of fiction and fantasy, offering products that involve wits, knowledge, art, and social interaction, all of which perfectly compliment the Kosmos range.

Going forward, Kosmos Games aim to grow with the thriving movement in the board games community and continue to support the industry in bigger and better ways.
