Hi there,

Hoping some of you might be able to assist me in settling a small dispute with a co-worker. Question is:

What would you say was the most popular game purchased in 2008?

If you mean top-selling, then Monopoly is a good bet. If not, then one of Hasbro's other mass-market titles, most likely.

Edit: The answer to this question may be different in the USA and Canada. I think it's no bet, because you aren't going to find much hard data.

Pandemic
or
Dominion

based on plays and purchases

unless you mean by raw sales, which is a metric that no one really has access to. But just guessing I'd say it was either Monopoly, Settlers of Catan or Blokus.

I'm guessing, but in 2008, I'd guess poker. Or would that be earlier? Yes, the decks can be used for other games, but none of them is very popular. Bridge players don't use poker decks.

However, you're not going to find an authoritative answer, I think. Private companies usually keep their sales secret, and while public companies will have sales in dollars, usually they don't call out individual game sales with any specificity..
