Pentaho is a board game developed by the Czechoslovakian game company Chemcad, and released in the U.S. in 1995.
It was published by the Electronic Arts subsidiary Epic Games, and was a successful success for the company, becoming the company’s best-selling board game, with an estimated market value of $8,000,000.
The game has become so popular that Chemcads license keys are sold for thousands of dollars on eBay.
When asked about the Pentaho license keys, Epic Games said it is aware of the auction.
“We’ve gotten some inquiries regarding this,” the company said in a statement.
“As part of the process, we’ve also contacted some of our licensing partners to try to get them to provide some of the pentaho keys that we have to the auction.”
Chemcad did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Chemcalad also confirmed to The Lad that it received a Pentaho key from an eBay auction house and has been working with eBay to secure the key.
The company said it did not have any information on the buyer, or if the auction house has a list of pentaho key buyers.
Another auction house is bidding on the Pentacheth license key and is asking a similar amount.
Epic Games is not the only game company to make the Pentateh-themed board game.
An online auction of the Pentagram-themed Chess license key for $8.5 million has raised more than $6 million in bids.
There is no information about whether the auction will go through.
