Top DCC Third Party Publisher Products, 2020
As we look back on 2020, it’s always great to track the trends and see what’s popular in our online store. In looking specifically at our Third Party releases (leaving aside ‘zines for now — they are the subject for another day) we can get a clear look at what DCC fans have been clamoring to get over the last year.
Our rankings are based on a combination of total sales, and dollar sales. All of our “big books,” like hardbacks, tend to score higher because they are at a higher price point. But when you just look at copies sold, you get a few different titles floating to the top. Therefore, our ‘Top 10 List’ is actually comprised of thirteen products this time around, since we combine total dollar sales with total numbers sold to come up with the best list possible.
So, without further ado, here are the top third-party best-sellers for the last year…
Not only was the 2019 edition of Gongfarmer’s Almanac our top seller, but previous year’s editions all placed very highly as well, so we are lumping them all together here.
Written, illustrated, edited and produced by the DCC RPG G+ community, this yearly almanac collects the entire year of the ‘zine, and is absolutely chock full of new adventures, artifacts, patrons, monsters — well, everything, really.
