WOTC Sales

Hasbro posted significantly higher sales than expected for both the 4th quarter of 2016 and the entire year. Some 80% of WOTC sales were through hobby game stores such as ours and similar outlets, which I would take to mean comic shops and hobby stores, not the mass market such as Walmart and Target.

Unfortunately, much of WOTC's focus for the future is towards the digital version of the game, as mentioned in missives from the company CEO. Much discussion about the online version of Magic, no mention of the physical game.
