Default Digital Sales at DriveThruRPG.

Recently I visited a Barnes and Nobles for the first time in a while. I found DnD and roleplaying are a thing again not longer relegated (for now) to a single shelf in the back corner of the science fiction and fantasy section. Instead they are in the main section on several tables filled with books and RPG/D&D related merchandise.

So this got me thinking about something I haven't done in a while. Crunching the order numbers from my sales from Bat in the Attic Games to get a sense of how DriveThruRPG and other Onebookshelf sites are doing.

This is only relative sales as it is based on order numbers which can be in addition to a sale contains multiple product and be for internal accounting. But the idea is that if a year has twice the order numbers compared to a previous year They are doing twice the business compared to that year.

Year to Year Orders
HTML Code:
Year	 Start # for Year 	Total Order for Year
2007	 474,590 	 314,000 
2008	 788,590 	 422,649 
2009	 1,211,239 	 500,874 
2010	 1,712,113 	 671,444 
2011	 2,383,557 	 797,698 
2012	 3,181,255 	 1,016,249 
2013	 4,197,504 	 1,196,729 
2014	 5,394,233 	 1,261,849 
2015	 6,656,082 	 1,465,395 
2016	 8,121,477 	 2,407,787 
2017	 10,529,264 	 2,912,654 
2018	 13,441,918 	 3,689,355 
2019	 17,131,273 	 4,484,531 
2020	 21,615,804 	 6,599,058 
2021	 28,214,862 	
Then I thought to see what effect the pandemic had. So I ran month to month numbers starting in December 2019. There is a significant spike in April starting in the March and tailing off in June.
