Geek Native and DriveThruRPG have been looking at games published in 2020 and which sold well. Today we’re looking at family gaming which, unlike previous categories, isn’t a genre description but an audience one.
Family, rightly or wrongly, tends to be a shorthand for “appropriate for kids but interesting to adults too”.
As with previous lists, this one has been lightly edited by Geek Native and DriveThruRPG to remove games that might have been tagged with “Family” with some other definition in mind, or by mistake.
Best selling family RPGs of 2020
(That were published in 2020)
- Kids on Brooms: Core Rulebook by Hunters Entertainment.
- Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Adventure Game by River Horse Games.
- Pirates of Pugmire by Onyx Path Publishing.
- Tiny Taverns by Gallant Knight Games.
- Harper’s Tale: A Forest Adventure Path for 5e by Saturday Morning Scenarios.
- Neverland: A Fantasy Role-Playing Setting by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
- Beyond the Wall – Dangers Near and Far by Flatland Games.
- Witch+Craft, a 5e crafting supplemental by Astrolago Press.
- The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen, third edition by Magnum Opus Press.
- Fungal Kingdom (TinyD6) by Fat Goblin Games.
That’s victory for Hunters Entertainment with Kids on Brooms: Core Rulebook.
Despite spending more time (and much angst) filtering these charts for the first time (previous years have been a data dump) it is still not unheard of for a game to list more than once.
That’s the last of the charts we have for you this year.
