They report steady sales continuing in the face of supply chain issues and an overall market that is still experiencing what many thought was a COVID boom, but may be setting in as the new normal.
Looking over the various charts I see a few changes. Starting with board games, where the staple games of Catan and Ticket to Ride, absent last time, have returned to the top 10. Wingspan and Gloomhaven continue their strong sales, and my current favourite Lost Ruins of Arnak also makes an appearance for the first time.
Miniatures look much the same as before. Warhammer 40,000 and the Nolzur’s line dominate:
Is that a misprint on the publisher of Star Wars Legion? I didn’t hear anything about the line moving from Fantasy Flight. I still feel this chart would benefit from being a top 10, I suspect the Game of Thrones line would be in here if that were the case.
In the realm of collectible cards, the in-demand Pokemon line has toppled Magic from its previous top spot in terms of hobby store sales.
Finally over in RPGs the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons continues its rule over the roost:
Other than Pathfinder the top 5 games are completely new compared with the August update. It would seem that other than D&D and Pathfinder, RPGs have initial sales before quickly fading from view.
