kulturgutspiel.de | Who earns what from a board game?

This comprehensive article highlights the revenue structures in the board game industry - based on the German market: publishers, producers, distributors, retailers, the state, authors, illustrators and translators. Based on a sample calculation, the individual participants are then presented in detail. Only the term "earn" is somewhat misleading, as it mostly refers to net sales without taking costs into account. On some points, the SAZ has also commented on request of the author.

Regarding author royalties, SAZ members can download a detailed "Mirror of Royalties and Contract Terms" in the publication series SAZ Points.
