Gaming is fun, and fun is for everyone
If you go to best selling gaming MTOF is beating the SCAG, if you go to best selling Dungeons and Dragons the SCAG is beating MTOFs wtf?

I will say at least in some ways the SCAG is better written then the MTOF, but MTOF does have is bright shining moments, such as the unification of Demihuman Pamtheons and some of the Monsters and of course the Gith.

Anyways the point of this thread was that some where saying D&D had peaked, but the fact that Theros is doing so well before it was even released says otherwise.

I'll add that given the Corona situation, alot of folks that would have purchased just the physical book have purchased the digital versions instead (or as well), boosting digital Theros sales, but at the expense of lowering sales on Amazon, so it might have been even higher on the lists otherwise.

Amazon's list varies from country-country, so different areas get different results.

The top i see (in Seattle) are PHB, DMG, Monster Manual, Xanathar's, Starter Set, Wildemount, Essentials, Volos, Eberron, Mordenkainen, Strahd, SCAG, couple miscellaneous, then Theros at 16.

This was book American lists, I didn't check the Amazon Canadian or other lists yet.

True, it's not a surprise that Theros is leading new releases, but that it jumped two spots on the D&D best seller list is different. Isn't that based on total sales of a book?

If I'm right it means Theros' sales have already out paced Ravnica and Saltmarsh's sales before it's been released. Of course Wildemount blew past everything basically but the core and starter set.

No, it is based on current sales by the hour, not historic. It's doing well, but this means Ravnica is selling slightly better in terms of sales today.

But it's only how well it's selling today. So a week after release, it could fall back down again once the pre-orders are met.

Wow you are so negative, you have a real talent for finding the cloud in every silver lining.

Its a GOOD thing Theros is doing so well so far, try positivity you might enjoy it.

Is there a list that shows best sellers by total sales?

Because that is kind of useless doing it by the hour.

Not for public use, no. Amazon does do annual overall top 100 lists, but these are just so customers can go and quickly check what's selling hot. And Theros is selling hot! Almost as hot as Ravnica is at the moment.

Right? Especially one with relatively broad appeal like this.

Also I'm kind of annoyed by this thread because it tricked me into think Theros was out or would be soon when in fact it's June 2nd.
I got tricked too. I knew the release date was 6/2, but I thought maybe there was a covid-19 surprise and they release it early :p

I hadn't heard that. Who was saying that? Someone here on these forums or an analyst or insider? I would think the fact that WotC just realesed all of their 2019 success marketing that it would indicate it is still on the rise. Though I image covid-19 might cause a downturn or flattening of the curve.

Anecdotal, but I could run a session every night of the week based on the number of people who have never played before but now want to due to the pandemic

Again I apologize, I wasn't trying to trick anyone, I should have thought about how it might be misconstrued.

I got Odyssey of the Dragonlords. There's no way this one is going to top that.

I LOVED Odyssey of the Dragonlord, but having read all the story stories and the novels for Theros, it might, although in a home game I would absolutely poach the best parts of both books, and Arkadia, plus the Old Empires (old FR book with simular flavour, Chessenta is FR's Greece, but with its own twists, and more diverse cultural influences).
