The Witcher: The Old World knocks Earth from top spot for most new owners | BGG Stats

Monster-hunting adventure game The Witcher: The Old World had the most new owners on BoardGameGeek in June, knocking Earth from the top spot it has held for the previous two months.

More than 2,100 BGG users registered owning Lukasz Wozniak-designed The Witcher last month according to data collated by user Igor Larchenko, coinciding with Kickstarter copies landing in backers’ hands over the past few weeks.

Motor racing game Heat: Pedal to the Metal held onto second place with 1,620 new owners, with Earth falling to third place on 1,598.

Heat had not even been in the top 100 for new owners in April’s stats, but accelerated up the rankings after two wins and two other nominations at the BoardGameGeek Golden Geek Awards towards the beginning of May.

Tile-drafting game Azul, a mainstay of the new owners Top 10, rose to fourth place this month, about 150 new copies ahead of fellow perennial Wingspan.

Aerial combat wargame Undaunted: Battle of Britain was the most wishlisted game on BoardGameGeek last month, being added by more than 1,100 users.

Archeos Society, the reimplementation of Paolo Mori’s 2017 release Ethnos, was in second place with 1,101 new wishlisters, while solo game Mr. President: The American Presidency, 2001-2020, which unexpectedly soared to the top of the BGG Hotness over the past week, was third at 895.

Books of Time, Stranger Things: Upside Down and Disney Lorcana were also added several hundred BGG users last month.
