Once again I have compiled a list of my best selling game lines in order. I assigned points to different values of purchases so that this reflects both most individual items sold as well as costs of those items. A $3.00 item (CCG boosters) would get 1 point per item, a $12 item (Heroscape booster) would be 3 points, a $40 item (Catan) would be 6 points. Once again, paints, puzzles, and games accessories are not counted on this list, Compared with the previous lists the trends I see are somewhat expected, though I did not expect the 1st place item to stay that way for the 4th quarter in a row!

You may notice that neither Dungeons and Dragons nor Magic appear on this list. I still sell both of them but they just aren't selling that well. I think I could decide to stop carrying WotC products completely and not have a decline in over all sales. Is WotC finally no longer the leader in gaming? I think Fantasy Flight Games now holds that title, though in this store it is Games Workshop.

Miniatures games makes up about 80% of my sales while CCG's make up less than 5%. Since puzzles, paints, and accessories are not on this list it may not be that obvious.

I did not expect this to stay in first place. I figured people had what they wanted and I would not be able to sell as much since I can get nothing new. I've reduced the shelf space for Heroscape in half, yet it is still my best sold product. It is still by a large gap too, though not like before. The 2nd and 3rd place items combined still beat it, though Heroscape beats out all of the 4th place and lower games combined.

The surprise here is that WH40k is rarely played here. I hosted an event and there was no turnout. Around here there are many small groups of 40k players that don't like to interact with each other. I believe that is a result of having been shunned by the main group that own what used to be the only place in town to buy the products. I'm trying to bring everyone together into one large community but it is taking some time.

The difference with Fantasy is that this store is in fact the hub for Fantasy players. It gets painted here regularly but still not played much as most of the players are fairly new and don't have a playable army yet.

4. Board Game: Redakai [Average Rating:5.57 Overall Rank:9266]

What isn't shown here is that the gap bettween WH Fantasy and Redakai is huge. WH Fantasy sells about 3 times as much as Redakai does. Still it is pretty good that what is now my CCG of choice is also the best seller. Disapointing though that the people have been buying this but not showing up to league play. It is still a new game though and hopefully picks up.

I don't expect this to stay here. I had a customer buy a whole bunch of books for the Fantasy version. Also this is closer to 10th place than it is to passing Redakai

This is going to die off I think. The main guy for this that was running the league has moved away. A lot of Pokemon players are switching to Redakai. It is the same kind of game but just better.

I probably would have sold more expansions if I'd keep them all in stock . I have all of the expansions on order to arrive probably Wednesday.

This is one I never saw coming. Somehow there was a large demand for this game all of a sudden. It wasn't even one I was considering stocking until two people special ordered it in the same order. At least I had the foresight to order the expansion and sold it right away also.

DnD done right. I love that not only is this now outselling DnD but that it is Piazo just sticking it to WotC. I'm going to be playing in a campaign shortly. As DnD clears the shelf here it will be replaced with more Pathfinder.

I could have easily sold twice as much if everything were still in print. A lot of customers ask me regularly if I can get the various expansions in.

If anything will steal Dominions place as my favorite card game, Race for the Galaxy will, though I doubt it will ever outsell Dominion.
