BANG! #6 in Card Game Sales, Q1 2011

ICv2's Internal Correspondence #75 market report noted that the game biz roared in Q1 of 2011, and that the following card games were the top 10 best-selling:
  1. Dominion

  2. Munchkin

  3. Thunderstone

  4. Ascension

  5. Killer Bunnies

  6. BANG!

  7. Dixit

  8. Resident Evil

  9. Seven Wonders

  10. Guillotine

It kills me that Killer Bunnies beats BANG!, but such is life. This is a report of what people buy, not the quality of their taste. Not that many of the games in this list are not excellent. But I thought it good to know that BANG! is still a very popular game even 9 years later. As for how this list was compiled, the source website claims, "The charts are based on interviews with retailers, distributors, and manufacturers."
