Great app! Use daily!
I love this app and use it to keep track of my game collection. It is also makes it easy to find the best games when playing with a particular number of players. Keep up the great work!
Wish list of future features:
1)Auto update current BGG stats (rank, ratings, number of user ratings, etc) for all games in collection when syncing (have to update per game now)
2)add Filter by game mechanic and designer
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.
Not a Smartphone App
This App is just a basic reference to the BGG website account and can not be used as individual App. To make any modifications to your references you must link it to (or create if you don’t already have) your BGG account online. You have to populate and update your lists through the website. There is no ability to create a reference to a board game that you just played with your friends, or at a convention or a game you browsed at a store. A quick easy scan to “want to buy” or “have played” list is not available, rendering this app useless for any convenient use. It also does not add anything to the BGG site that you already using (or will have to use) without the app.
