Doesn't sound like there are any big changes planned for a while since it seems the whole staff is making the move.  I wonder if the changes to Approved Play were in preparation for this merger?

I expect that the move will be similar to when Hasbro bought WotC--not much will happen. It does make me wonder if they'll come out with some sports-based clix games, though.
