The games industry


Many such games have gone digital. Magic: The Gathering, for example, has pivoted from physical cards to being one of the leading digital collectible card games worldwide. This puts this and other such games in competition with gaming consoles, PC games, and mobile apps. However, there remains a growing market for board games which is poised to increase.
