Board Game's popularity amongst developers
This chart displays the games released over the years with the Board Game tag and the percentage of total Steam releases they represent. The releases count conveys the quantity of games published on Steam each year. It usually follows the increasing amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better idea of the trend a tag follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Board Game tag is getting more or less popular from a developer's perspective. The Review chart can let us know if this trend is a positive thing (i.e. players interest for the tag is growing) or a negative one (the tag is overcrowded).
The Board Game game tag peaked in 2021 with 315 games released. The tag's popularity is in a range between 0.26% in 2010 and 0.05% in 2013.
Keep in mind that the current year is not over, so the number of games released will still increase. But the percentage is usually a good estimate.
