Hi

What website publishes sales figures for annual party game sales of publishers?
Taboo, Cranium, Pictionary, Apples to Apples, Mad Gab etc etc?

Thanks

To my knowledge, none

While big sellers get touted by the company selling them, I've never seen anyone break out year by year sales numbers on individual titles. If I recall, NPD Group does marketing research on the toy/game industry and does issue reports, but again, I haven't seen any numbers on specific titles. (NPD was the one who reported that board game sales were up 6-8% last year). That might be in NPD's paid report, but I don't think it's in the free one.

Part of the problem, too, is sublicensing. Apples to Apples and Mad Gab are both sublicensed to separate, private companies for niche market titles. So, even if you found the yearly figures for Mad Gab, that might not include the numbers for Bible Mad Gab or other variants.

I hope I'm wrong, and you can find the info you need. If I am, post back here and let us know!
