It's officially Summer. I mention this because our top sellers this month are about the sheer volume of kids we have in the store. We may talk a good game with our new role-playing books, boxes of miniatures and photos of shiny board game releases, but Summer is all about kids and cards. This was not the case a year ago, with a dismal June and only about 18 months into the new store location. Apparently it takes about two years for the local kids to find you, and with our sales up 30% from last June, the word "locusts" sometimes comes to mind.
Here are our top 10 sellers for the last 30 days:
- Magic: The Gathering - Archenemy
- Magic: The Gathering - Rise of the Eldrazi Booster
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Gold Series 3
- Pokemon HS Unleashed
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Shining Darkness Booster
- Magic: The Gathering- Worldwake Booster
- Yu-Gi-Oh TCG Duel Terminal
- Dresden Files RPG: Volume 1
- Dungeons & Dragons - Monster Manual 3
- Magic: The Gathering: Rise of the Eldrazi - Fat Pack
Eight out of our top ten sellers are collectible card game releases (all of the top seven). All hail the young suburbanites! Our closest miniature release is the Warmachine: Cryx book (#13). Our closest board game is Pandemic (#14). I've stripped out drinks and snacks (bottled water and Mexican Coke would be on the list).
Dresden would be higher if we hadn't taken in a dozen pre-orders of both books earlier. The Duel Terminals are treated like a product in every way (including sales tax), so I left it on the list. The release of duel terminal 2 cards has created quite a bit of excitement.
