BoardGameGeek


This app searches the board game data from BoardGameGeek (aka, BGG, Board Game Geek, or just the Geek) at boardgamegeek.com. It's not a game itself - it's a reference tool that provides information about board games.


Features include:
• Viewing, sorting, and filtering your collection.
• Search for games.
• Log and view your plays. They are more advanced logging options and features here than on the website.
• View your GeekBuddies and their collections.
• View forums. Note that images are not loaded by default and are intentionally replaced by ugly placeholders. Clicking the ">" will open an individual post with all of the images displayed as you would expect.


Not supported (at least not yet):
• Can't add or modify your collection.
• Can't post to forums.
• No subscription viewing.
• No GeekMail.


Permissions
Since people want to know, requested permissions are due the following features:
• Modify USB storage - store game images so they don't have to be downloaded each time
• Accounts (add, remove, create, find, and use) - add your BoardGameGeek account to the list of known accounts
• Sync - regularly keeps your local data in sync with your information on the web


The code is GPLv3: http://code.google.com/p/boardgamegeek

User reviews of BoardGameGeek
One of two complementary BGG apps. This one's better for looking up the details of games, but doesn't record plays.

Step in the right direction Currently only really useful for tracking plays, if you like to do that. Good looking and running, though. Should become more useful add it's developed. 3 stars for now, but I'm hopeful for this apps future.

Just Ok... Missing quite a lot of features from the website, the most important one being the ability to view my trades status and initiate new trades.... A small 3 stars at best in its current form, because it's lacking features...

Awsome, but missing somethings Although it's starting to look really cool, it would be perfect if it included some stats and or achievements.

Active development makes me encouraged It's awesome for logging plays, and it's constantly being improved. I'd like to be able to select players to add, but I like that it remembers who you played with at a given location. Some have also wanted collection management, but it's play data that I'm most concerned about, and this app does it well.

About the only useful function is logging plays. It'd actually easier than the raw website. Other than that...
