Quote:
Qwirkle has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide, says designer Susan McKinley Ross.



Posted in January 2013: I have no idea about the original release. But the German release that won Spiel des Jahres in 2011 is at 400.000 copies according to the publisher. These numbers are in line with what we can expect from the red pawn logo.

NOTE: This entry is for the Rubik's Cube itself, not the card game depicted. I thought it provided a useful point of comparison to the rest of the games in this geeklist.

According to Wikipedia, 350 million Rubik's Cubes were sold as of January 2009.

350,000 according to an informative Feb 2011 blog post by designer Frederic Moyersoen:

"The total sales for Saboteur has now reached 350,000 copies.
France has beaten Germany with 90,000 against 83,000 sold copies.
The third place goes for the Netherlands with 38,000 sold copies, which is not bad for such a small country."
