These numbers might be out of date, but well, at least there are numbers.

Quote:
"The palace of Alhambra," the game of the year 2003 was, globally, together with its extensions to more than 1,000,000 copies sold. Now there is the popular family game for the first time with 5 extensions (each containing four modules) in a large box.

1,000 copies sold more or less immediately upon release, as per an October update on BGN:

Quote:
Clever Mojo Games reports that all one thousand copies of the initial print run of Alien Frontiers are gone. From a news update: "This amazing sell-out has just surprised the heck out of us and left us scrambling to both get all of the games mailed out and to figure out what's next.... Also, we're exploring our options for a second, larger, printing with a wide, or even global, release."

Our all-time best-selling game is back!
Way back in 1997, a totally unknown game company called Outset Media released its first board game. That game went on to become a best-seller, with over 100,000 copies sold across Canada. That was ten years ago, and the game was All Canadian Trivia!
