DCC RPG sales

Post by rotgrub » Sun Jun 10, 2012 9:41 am

Hi everyone,

I just registered to share this news with you. I actually don't have DCC RPG myself yet but am intrigued. (I'm a Pathfinder player but would like to borrow some charts and ideas.)

Anywayz, I wanted to send encouragement and support for creating a new system to enjoy! Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, a local store reports that DCC RPG was their #1 seller last month:

That's pretty cool! There seems to be a lot of buzz around the game, and it's growing.

Wow, that's cool. DCC RPG, the first two DCC modules and Perils of the Sunken City are still in the top 10 on DriveThru/RPGNow.

That is awesome! Black Diamond Games regular posts how products are doing in there store, it is good see it reach the top selling spot for them! The buzz really seems to be building behind the game. I know I had a bit of a time trying to track down a copy of the hardcover of it. Wish I had had the sense to pre-order it!

That is really awesome that DCC is making a good showing out of Black Diamond.

What really surprised me about that list, however, is how thoroughly it proves their theory that presentation of gaming materials in abundance (their choice to just dive in and display a huge selection of Pathfinder stuff when the sales were low on the product before hand) drives up sales significantly... the Pathfinder Core Book should, by all means, be lagging in current sales... at least lagging behind the newer Pathfinder supplements and aids... but nope, sitting pretty only beat in sells that month by a brand-spanking new game with a brand-spanking new definition of "epic gaming."

I noticed that Dragon's Lair in Austin, TX is having trouble keeping DCC RPG materials in supply. They're already out of core books and adventures and they said they will have to special order a copy of People in the Pit for me. This is really good for a game that really wasn't getting much promotion in the store with the exception of a single poster on the wall near the RPG books. Of course, Free RPG day is coming up this weekend so it will be interesting to see if they can get more stuff in to sell. Because I'm going to be there running demos and really talking up the game.
