Year in Review – Part 1

Year in Review – Part 1

August this year concludes our first year of operations. As we were looking back at the year, we thought it would be interesting to dig into our sales data and make some interesting inferences.

Note: For most of the analysis below, we’ve used order data from 01/09/2018 to 31/08/2018.

Orders by total cart value

The first data point we were interested to see was what was the total order value of an average order placed on the site. As the data shows, a majority of our orders fall in the ₹0-₹5,000 range. Since we also sell sleeves, dice, and other accessories on the site, the peak is at a lower value than you would expect given the high prices of games.

Distribution of orders by total order value.

Zooming in on orders less than ₹10,000, we see the distribution shift and even out in the ₹2,000-₹4,000 which coincides with the prices of most our games.

Distribution of orders in the ₹500 to ₹10,000 range.

Number of sales by item price

As you’d expect, cheaper items sell more than expensive items. Though, again, this is skewed by the prices of cheaper items like sleeves and dice. The peak in the ₹1-₹2k range is mostly driven by the sales of Arboretum and The Mind which have been hugely popular this year, and the sales in the ₹4-₹5k range is driven by the sale of Wingspan, which is, not surprisingly, on it’s way to become our best selling game of the year. And yes, that bump in the 7k+ range is mostly Gloomhaven.

Hopefully you found this interesting. In the next post, we’ll dig further into the games, popularity of games by BGG weight and rating. If there’s anything else you’d like us dig into, let us know in the comments.

    Would be interesting to see the following data as well:
    – Contribution of top 5 cities combined to total sales
    – Next 10 cities after top 5 to understand the next budding board gaming places
    – Comparison genre wise – Top 5 genres and mechanics
