Top 5 August

Last month was cut short because of our summer break, but we still had a busy month considering it was the school holidays and a normally quiet time of the year for the board game industry.

Here are the Top 5 in sales, which were dominated by reprints of two very popular games:

1) Cthulhu Wars
2) Roll Player
3) Gentes
4) Spirit Island
5) Runebound (Third Edition): Unbreakable Bonds

Three GenCon announcements from FFG have taken the Pre-Order Top 5 by storm:

1) Fallout: The Board Game
2) Terraforming Mars: Venus Next
3) Photosynthesis
4) Civilization: A New Dawn
5) Twilight Imperium (Fourth Edition)

 

 

This week’s new releases

It’s the summer holidays, but it looks like nobody has told this to the board game publishers. They keep on releasing game after game, which means that this week we are expecting fourteen new games/expansions:

Most of these will be available on Wednesday, but some (Ticket to Ride, Runebound Expansion, Modern Art) will get released at the end of the week.
