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. This is not an official app; it is supported by adoring fans.


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

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.

Works great. Still like to be able to add and rate but time fixes all wounds. U an having an issue syncing plays but that might be the server not the app.

One meeple short It would be great to have a facility to directly browse a list of a) your own collection and b) your wish list. And then edit / add items.

Fantastic! It's simpler and faster to log your plays through this app than using the actual BoardGameGeek site. I love this app! The user interface beats its parent site. This is a stellar app.
