The top 100 most purchased games (March 2014 edition)
This list analyzes purchasing (or acquisition) trends of BGG members, normalized to a 30 day month using units (not $).Recommend
Note: as I use members collections to create this list, it is affected by when people update their collections. So in the case a new member was added, it will show up as "purchased" that month. That is a gap in this list's accuracy. Also, please note that occasionally I will pass by games that are in the top 100...I have a tough time putting in Scrabble and Chess in every month at the expense of some new(er) gamer's games.
Lastly, sometimes you will see numbers that are a bit confusing, but they are commonly due to ties in game purchases of this month or previous months.

Comments: Again, this won't be the most thrilling list this month, as we're in the doldrums of release season, with few changes in the top 50 / 100. What I think is most interesting, however, is the significant fall off of game purchases / adds in March, just like in 2013. The good news? We're still at 25% higher than last year, though, which is great news.
If 2014 is anything like 2013, we'll see similar numbers come in for April through July, followed by a steady rise through the end of the year.
What to know how your favorite game is doing? Are you a FPGS who wants the "scoop" on some of the new games and how they are selling? Let me know. I am here to help!
I have had several of you contact me for information other than what is posted here-please keep those requests coming. I am always open to share what I can to help you out or if you are just plain curious
A special thanks to Todd Snyder
