This is the official app for BoardGameGeek, an online resource and community that aims to be the definitive source for board game and card game content. Daily new content, continuously updated by millions of passionate users, makes ‘the Geek’ the largest and most up-to-date place to get gaming information. You can become a registered member of BoardGameGeek (BGG) for free, and we welcome your contributions in the form of ratings, reviews, and thoughts on games!

BGG features reviews, ratings, images, play-aids, translations, and session reports from board game geeks around the world, as well as live discussion forums.

Here you’ll find many types of board games, including thousands you’ve probably never seen in a store. We cover not only board games but also dice games, card games, tile-laying games, and games of dexterity. We have abstracts, economic games, dungeon crawls, city building, diplomacy and negotiation, trading, puzzle games, strategy games, party games, war games, and many more. We run the gamut from the light and whimsical Carcassonne to the serious and heavy empire-building of Twilight Imperium: Fourth Edition. Well-known games like Monopoly exist in the database as well, although you’ll find almost all users prefer modern games that exhibit advancements in game play and component quality since Monopoly was first published.

It’s Perfect

Been into board games for a year or so and it always struck me as odd that BGG didn’t have their own app. So many other third party apps are in the store to make up for that, but all of them are glitchy or don’t have many features. At last, BGG has released their own app, and the more I play with it, the more I love it. From seamlessly adding games to collections to contributing on forums to going through the news to looking at Kickstarter games…it’s like they though every single detail on the admittedly old-school site and made it look great on modern phones. The ads that people are complaining about are easily ignored. Some people just want to nitpick when the good clearly outweighs the bad. I have no complaints. Keep up the great work, BGG!

Finally! BGG on iOS!

For years I’ve had a website bookmark for BoardGameGeek on one of my phone’s home screens. But those days are finally over! With this native app, I can access all of the board game information I need, as well as my account, forums, videos (Game Night! is awesome!) and more. Loving this app so far!

I have on occasion found the website overwhelming, but this app has really helped. The functionality is excellent and it really gives me a handle on the various topics available. Two enthusiastic thumbs up for this one!
