PRLog - Nov. 21, 2012 - The NPD Group has released the year end sales results for the board game industry and their really quite encouraging. In a year where the overall toy segment was down 3%, board games were up 6%. This has led to a rash of opinions indicating that this is part of the continued rise of board games and that they are now ready to overthrow video games.

Some sources have predicted drops of 41% in online sales over the last few weeks but as Games from Everywhere spokesman, Luke Dawson, says, that is certainly not the picture that is unfolding for online Board Game sales in Australia.

"When you add in the apparent increase in market share that the digital gaming industry has, it really is remarkable to see that this increase has been matched with an equally enthusiastic board game community", said Luke Dawson.

For those worried about the decline in the kids board game industry, it has become increasingly clear that digital gaming has lead to a resurgence in board games. Families are choosing more and more to find quality board games for their kids as well as games that can be played as a family.

"Video games just don't have this element", said Luke. "In video gaming, the kids sit at the screen, oblivious to their social surrounds and occasionally family are called in to, "come see this!". The satisfaction is short lived. Who want to sit on the sidelines?"

Board Games have this enduring quality. They invite everyone and give them a stake in the entertainment. This is true of many of the Educational Kids Board Games and Puzzles now available on the market.

New board games are being developed all of the time with families eager to get in on the resurgence and give their kids something with a bit more substance than, "Blow that freak out of the Water."

Social Games like, "Cover your Assets" and, "Off your Rocker", are being developed by small board game industries and are finding a happy and profitable home among the myriad of fly-by-night video and iPhone games.

Luke really believes that the resurgence in Board Game popularity has come at a time when it was least expected. he is confident that the rise in online board game sales in Australia will only increase with the number of new high quality kids and family board games that Developers are putting forward.
