Mexican Coke is the undisputed heavyweight of the drink cooler. If I had a group that wanted to come in and sit around the game center discussing the merits of Mexican Coke, I would gladly seat them in a prime time slot. Heck, it outsells Yu-Gi-Oh, and I would probably get fewer complaints.

Warhammer Fantasy has remained very strong throughout the year. Warmachine continues to slip, although we've had a LOT of new players start lately.
Anime CCGs have been the surprise for us this year, with lots of fans for Bleach, Naruto, and Yu-Gi-Oh, although I expect the last one to begin slipping since we canceled their organized play. A new set of Kingdom Hearts and Maplestory were released this week, but the love is gone. These customers can be fickle too.

Here's an interesting chart by company. Not so diverse now, is it? These top 10 companies comprise 75% of our sales.
What should we expect in the coming month? Dungeons & Dragons will explode upon the scene the first week of June. Keep on the Shadowfell is released next week, and based on pre-orders, will probably be our best selling adventure ever. Warhammer 40K 5th Edition has Mexican Coke like strength, and we've already pre-sold a dozen $90 gamer edition sets, including one to me. We've got 8 more available either for pre-order or for sale the day of the release. Those who don't splurge on that, will surely buy the standard rulebook when it's released July 12th. I've been reading a pre-release copy and I'm wondering if mortar teams might be viable....
