Since Icv2's Internal Correspondence separates card games from board games, here is the companion list to their top ten hobby board games for Spring 2013.

Icv2's figures, gathered from publishers, distributors and retailers, principally reflect the US, rather than the global market, but I hope they will be of interest to somebody. They make for an interesting comparison with Peter Brahan's excellent summaries of BGG's purchasing activity.

Note: these figures also lump together base games and expansions, so don't be surprised if this skews the figures in favour of long-established games with buckets of expansions on the market.

Also note: I don't really play card games, so forgive me if my commentary is of necessity more whimsical and less objective than it might be.

If people find these lists interesting, I shall make a point of keeping up with the sales figures as they are released.

Topping the list is FFG's relaunched two-player LCG: Netrunner, which has climbed from the number three spot it occupied at the end of 2012.

Dropping one place to number three, it's the ubiquitous deck-builder Dominion. It will be interesting to see whether the 2008's continuing stream of new expansions will see it climb the list again once Netrunner's novelty wears off.

Demonstrating that you can't keep a billion dollar franchise down, even by making three terrible movies starring a faintly-racist CGI horse-lizard then selling the lot to Disney, FFG's Star Wars LCG climbs four places to number four.

Knocked down from the number one spot despite benefiting from a mindboggling plethora of expansions, it's the gateway card game everybody loves to hate. Perhaps as popular memory of old-school D&D fades, time will also come up for Munchkin.

Up three places from number nine last year, doubtless benefiting from the present popularity of Marvel Comics' film franchises. Not bad for a game that's basically Top Trumps.

A new entry at umber seven, it's a game I hadn't even heard of before: Ascension. It's yet another deckbuilder, apparently designed by Magic players.

And finally at number ten, it's superhero-themed co-operative card game Sentinels of the Multiverse, another new entry.

Booted out to make space for this quarter's new entries were: Atlas Games' Gloom and Alderac's Smash Up.
