The board game market is a multi-billion dollar market. It may be a surprise to some that board games are out-selling electronic games by a two to one ratio. The renewed strength in classic board games, as well as the introduction of mass- market, family-friendly board games, is creating positive momentum for board game sales. Combined with the continued growth of independent board games aimed at adults, games and puzzles is likely to see some of its strongest sales growth in years in 2017, with value sales expected to grow by over 1% globally in US$ constant prices. While mass-market classic board games and new family-oriented games are seeing modest increases in sales, independent board games continues to be one of the highest growth areas of games and puzzles. Park Smarts Adventures will benefit from a recent trend of game publishers to expand titles based on one central general theme. For example, the most successful board game in history, Monopoly, offers numerous versions with a central design based on rules and components of previous games. Monopoly has a national parks game that covers all the most popular parks though it will not generally be a direct competitor to Park Smarts Adventures which concentrates each game on one specific park and its many features.
National parks saw a record-setting number of visitors last year. A new tally shows 330.97 million recreational visits to national parks last year, a 7.72% increase from the year before. In 2016 visitation to national parks broke another record for the third year in a row. The NPS’ 2016 marketing effort included the Every Kid in The Park campaign, led by the White House, which set a goal of getting every fourth-grader in the U.S. to visit at least one park between Sept. 1, 2016, and Aug. 31, 2017. This campaign will continue for years to come. Park Smarts Adventures Board Games series is ripe for the market and ready to hit the mass-market game industry. Your support will bring many youngsters and adults hours of fun while being educated on our beautiful National Parks.
