Open up a world of board game information with The Board Game Bible. This app scours the internet and brings you all the information you need about a game into one place. Search for a specific game title or find what your looking for by browsing the numerous categories available. You can watch videos of other board gamers playing the game, or check out a few Top Lists to see what's popular right now. Also includes the best websites and podcasts for gaming news as well as a list of the hottest games at the moment. The BGB gathers information from places like BoardGameGeek.com and YouTube channels in order to make your board game search as simple as a game of Candy Land.
You can sync your collection from the Board Game Geek website and update owned/wishlist games. You can also view and log plays to BGG.
We also now incorporate BoardGamePrices.com price data into each game so you can find the lowest price game on the internet.
Added a stats collection screen, where a signed in BGG user can see a variety of statistics on their collection.
Fixed an issue with logging negative scores
Ratings and Reviews
Probably the best BGG app on iOS, but still missing key features.
I like this app a lot but there are a few key features that I really think are missing.
First of all I can’t seem to find any way to rate games in my collection. You can see my BGG rating but there doesn’t seem to be a way to add or change one within the app.
Secondly and most importantly to me, in other apps there is a way to look at the player count rating in detail. Seeing bars representing the “recommend” and “best” player counts for the game. Just seeing the single “best” number is not as helpful as you might think. Some games are rated to be best with two, even though they are also considered to be really great with five or six. Like “Letters from Whitechapel” for example. They came please best with two, it’s almost as good at three, but it’s also great with six because each player gets to control one pawn.
I use that information every single day when I am choosing which games to bring to a game night. How many players we have is the single most important deciding factor.
Great way to track games and plays. Was looking for something that integrated with BGG.
One star removed for a couple small issues (and clarity)
* Password field for BGG doesn’t support all characters BGG allows in its password. Literally couldn’t type the characters so had to change my BGG password to use sync.
* Unclear that “Add To Collection” included other options than adding to games you own until actually clicked. I was initially browsing app before I discovered password issue and adding stuff to a manually created wishlist instead of using built in wishlist as I thought add to would only add to “my collection”.
* Speaking of that manually built list.... unclear if there is anyway to delete a list you aren’t using anymore.
Really great app! A must have for any board gamer!
This is a great app. It’s my go to app. The only reason I give it a 4 star review is the randomizing button only works on the lists you create. I want to randomly pick a game to play from my entire library but can’t. If that were fixed I would and will change my rating to a 5 star review. Still a great app! Must buy!
