Top sellers

I never quite trust the statistics produced by my webshop's software, however checking against other records my mistrust is misplaced.

My current best sellers (based on the last 90 days) are:-

1) Runewars
2) Agricola - Farmers of the Moor
3) Twilight Sruggle
4) Summoner Wars - Orcs v Elves (if i added in the other base set this would be no 1)
5) Municipium

Numbers 2 and 5 are no suprise because they are sale items - Esdevium (the UK distributor) has deeply discounted these games and i have bought them by the truck load and passed the savings on to my customers. Farmers is an excellent expansion for Agricola, to my shame i have only played it once, despite my having played the base game over 50 times. Municipium is, from gaming buddy reports, a decent game. It suffers by comparision with the Essen 2008 competition and a very steep RRP of £45. However, the cheap copies have all gone now. I have yet to play Runewars, depite excellent reports. I am not suprised Summoner Wars has been so popular - it's quick to play, easy to learn and could be described as 'Magic the Boardgame'. The new edition of Twilight Struggle seems to have brought a whole new generation of players to this amazing game, and i see it played a lot at my gaming clubs - which is unusal as 2 player games aren't common on public nights.

Without counting Dominion and its progeny, bubbling under the top 5 are Thunderstone (love it but it needs an expansion ASAP), Carson City (there seems to be a resurgence in interest in this game after initial so so reports, Hansa Teutonica, Dungeon Lords, Republic of Rome (see comment re TS above) and Vasco da Gama.

I'm sure Campaign Manager 2008 would be a top seller if i could get some more!
