I don’t know about you but I always had troubles positioning my games within existing casual game categories. For example, I didn’t know whether I want to put Runes of Avalon into match-3 games or brain-teaser games. I believe it was the same with a lot of other games like Virtual Villagers, Build-a-Lot or Westward.

A bit off topic: have you noticed that despite real estate markets going down real estate games hold strong?
