BoardGameGeek


So sorry for the crashes in V4.7. This new one should fix the problem. Thanks for your patience. Just a reminder this is a hobby for us, so we weren't able to fix it quicker. We appreciate everyone who will re-rate the app based on it's non-crashing nature.

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

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

I work in a comic book and game shop and this app is such a life saver. I'm a huge board game fanatic but I can't know every detail about the hundreds of games we carry. And this gives me all the info I need at my finger tips.

It's the only option right now It's mostly good, but the wishlist of missing features would make the app great. Notifications for Geekmail and viewing/replying would be super helpful.

Improved This app has improved drastically since version 1.0 but still needs some work. Many things are just not accessible so you have to resort back to the website but now at least there is a link to it within the app. The play logging is great yet you cannot easily see your comments or ratings still. I do love how it gives you a notification at each game log telling you what number play you're at for the game.
