An ICv2 Release.  ICv2 has announced the release of the ICv2 Guide to Games #49, which is being released to the trade by Alliance Game Distributors, Diamond Comic Distributors, ACD Distribution, GTS Distribution, Lion Rampant, and direct from ICv2.


The issue includes an overview of the 2007 market to date, which after a slight blip in August and September sales, now seems set for a healthy holiday sales season (see 'Game Market Has Solid Base for Holidays').


ICv2 Guide to Games #49 also includes the ICv2's best-in-the-business bestseller lists in five game categories -- CCGs, CMGs, non-collectible miniature games, board, card, and family games, and RPGs.  Other features include a special report from Ward Batty on Essen, launch coverage, reviews, and overviews of sales in each category.
