Does anyone have any reliable data on the state of the gaming industry, excluding the computer gaming industry? I can't find any modern (post-1990's) data about what's going on in the industry and its vitality.

Are we looking at a declining, stable or growing gaming industry if we don't include computer games? Anyone know?

Not a lot of reliable data coming out. But last year (2010) the German and the Dutch sales in boardgames were rising, if I recall correct.

Ah: from the Spiel pressday 2010:

Kids games: up 15%
Family games: up 11%
Trading card games: down.

2011:

First half year: -7%... (games in Germany, total)

Not sure how reliable the Fachgruppe Spiel is, but quite reliable, probably.
