Q1 Sales Numbers: The Debut of the New

Here’s our sales performance for the first quarter of 2015. While it may look like a number of our existing products are “down” saleswise, focusing on that would miss the point: this is a quarter where we debuted a number of new items. Designers & Dragons hit distribution, as did Monster of the Week and an assortment of Fate Worlds of Adventure in paperback. Taken together with the Don’t Turn Your Back kickstarter (numbers to be reported next quarter) and the launch of the Dresden Files RPG: Paranet Papers preorder, Q1 was pretty strong for the Hat.

Let’s get into the data.
