Calliope Games is in the final days of its Kickstarter campaign, focused on raising funds for its Titan Series game project. The Titan Series is a line of casual, family-friendly tabletop games intended to be playable in 60 minutes or less, and designed for ages 8 and up.
Game sales in hobby stores were up from 5 to 10 percent in 2009 despite the worst economy in generations, according to a report in the new issue of Internal Correspondence. The growth was driven by a resurgence in Magic: The Gathering sales and by board game sales up by double-digit percentages. Yu-Gi-Oh! and the return of HeroClix also helped support improved sales. Non-collectible miniature sales were slightly down, and RPG sales were down approximately 10 percent in 2009.
