For the last two weeks, with the assistance of DriveThruRPG, we’ve been looking at the best selling RPGs published this year.
Not all RPGs, though, can easily be put into one genre. We’ve seen this in the charts, with games appearing more than once. In fact, the top two best selling fantasy RPGs published this year are also the top two best selling modern genre RPGs.
However, there’s still one type to go; RPGs designed by generic or multi-genre.
Best selling multi-genre or generic RPGs of 2019
The chart below shows the top ten besting selling generic RPGs, supplements or accessories that were published in 2019.
- Cypher System Rulebook by Monte Cook Games.
- Fate Accessibility Toolkit by Evil Hat Productions.
- Savage Worlds World Builder and Game Master’s Guide by Pinnacle Entertainment.
- Macchiato Monsters by Lost Pages.
- Dogs by KN Obaugh.
- Encounter Theory by Plot Points Publishing.
- Hero Kids – Fantasy Adventure – Darkness Neath Rivenshore by Hero Forge Games.

How much should you pay for a best selling generic or multi-genre RPG?
The average price for a generic RPG or supplement is little over ten bucks; coming in at $10.17.
We take the lowest price from DriveThruRPG, which is usually the PDF-only option, and we use the marked down (in red) price unless it’s part of a sale. Red means a discount, but publishers often use it to show the discount offered on the digital copy of the game compared to the physical one.
