2004 Atlas Games Bestsellers

It's become something of an annual tradition for me to tabulate our bestsellers each year and share them with an internet. Given that today is January 2nd, it's about time for me to do it for the year just passed.

As usual, there are two lists, one ranking by unit sales and the other ranking by dollar sales. Boldface indicates a title that was a new release in 2004. Newer products typically dominate the lists, and this year is no exception. Availability also has an impact — for example, Tomb of the Lich Lord sold out several months ago, but until then it tended to sell a little bit better than Vault of the Fiends. Had Gloom made it in time, it would have placed on both lists, simply on the strength of the pre-orders I have waiting already for its imminent arrival. Roleplaying definitely took a back seat this year; even with the strong showing of Ars Magica 5th Edition in November, the lists are dominated by our traditional card games, which is the area that we really focused most of our investment this year.
