I've been wondering lately... just how many Warhammer Gamers are there in the world?
- I know the Games Day, UK, 2006 had "over 8500 attendees"...
- I know the US has GamesDay in four locations. Can't find attendance numbers
- I know Canada has one. Can't find attendance numbers
- I'm assuming that there would be one in France, Germany and others?
Do you think I can assume that a Games Day will garner, on average, 7500 Gamers at each event... and there are, perhaps, 10 Games Days worldwide...
I would think only 1% of active Gamers go to Games Days so...
7500 * 10 * 100 = 7,500,000
Seven and a half MILLION active Warhammer players (Fantasy and 40k combined)?! Does that sound Reasonable to everyone or am I off my rocker?
At the last guesstimate , there is about 3 million table top war -gamers world wide.
1.5 milloin historical ONLY gamers.
750,000 GW gamers ,and 750,000 non GW, fictional setting gamers.
GW gamers were broken down into ..
40k ,350,000,WH 200,000,LOTR ,100,000,SGs 100,000.
Now this was done about 4 years ago, and GW has withdrawn nearly all support for SGs.
And AT, 43 SST, Warmachnie,Flames of War and Armies of Arcana have certainly pulled alot of GW gamers away from GW .
So my best guess would be about 500,000 to 600,000 GW gamers world wide presently?
Hi snazzed .
The inormation was from a column in a copy of 'Wargames Monthly'
It just commented on the extimated amount of gamers world wide,(appx 3 million), and the approximate break down of games played.
GW have never released any information on how popular any of thier products are as far as I am aware.
500,000 seems a bit low though to me....
