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

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

Really needs collection-management function. Just the ability to flip the "owned" bit would be good enough for me.

Record your game play I use this app to record my gameplay. It's easy to use and really user friendly. Really usefull when I play at a friend's house. I really hope we can add or modify our collection directly in the app soon. The search function is hidden in the hotness page, but you can find any game.

Wonderful Just for the small picture icons of My Collection, this is great. Plus there is tons of other info that can be seen at a blink of an eye. *edit* What happened to the Links?
