Top 25 Role Playing Games of 2010

Every store is different and has their own unique list of top sellers. Here's what we sold in 2010, listed by quantity and excluding accessories like tile sets.

  1. Pathfinder RPG: Core Rules
  2. D&D - Player's Handbook 3 
  3. Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide
  4. Pathfinder Bestiary
  5. Dresden Files RPG: Volume 1 
  6. D&D Fantasy RPG Box Set  
  7. D&D Dark Sun Campaign Setting
  8. D&D Essentials Heroes Of The Fallen Land
  9. Dresden Files RPG: Volume 2 
  10. D&D Essentials Rules Compendium  
  11. Gamma World RPG
  12. D&D 4.0 Player's Handbook
  13. D&D - Martial Power 2
  14. D&D - Psionic Power
  15. D&D Essentials: Heroes of the Forgotten Realms
  16. Pathfinder Gamemastery Guide
  17. D&D Dark Sun Creature Catalog
  18. D&D Monster Manual 3
  19. Diaspora
  20. Warhammer 40k: Deathwatch RPG
  21. Legends Of Anglerre
  22. D&D 4.0 Dungeon Master's Guide
  23. D&D Essentials: Monster Vault
  24. Spirit of the Century
  25. 40KRPG: Ascension
In the past, D&D would dominate this list, but it shares only half of the top 10 spots (and half the spots overall), with three spots going to Pathfinder and the big hit of the year, Dresden Files, taking two spots. I thought the most interesting stuff was towards the bottom, where we see the success of several more FATE based games.

What can't be ignored is the success of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook. It's our number one best seller, despite being a full color, full sized, hardcover selling for $50 at a time when D&D is moving to a softcover digest for $20.
