Things I Liked this Year Part 1

TableTop has done a wonderful job of drawing attention to games that, at least here, have never reached top seller status and moved them into that category. Since TableTop started running episodes, sales figures for Tsuro, Elder Sign, Star Fluxx, Fiasco, and Last Night on Earth have quadrupled.  Prior to TableTop, in fact, we had not sold a copy of Tsuro or Elder Sign in over a year.  After the TableTop episode featuring each, we have sold out of both and had to restock several times.  Same thing with Fiasco.  I would have to say that TableTop was the most important promotional tool to hit the gaming industry this year.
