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.

Great app, a couple of limitations Love this app. Quick access to my collection, forums, and links to the website. Would like to add to my collection from the app, instead of having to follow through to the full site. Would also like to post to the forum from the app.

So easy to add plays, I'll be stoked once you can change collection status in the app.

Lacking functionality Can only browse 'the hotness' or search so of no use for game searching. As others gave said need some way of saving games. Mostly needs a much expanded browsing function, by genre, age group, mechanic, rating etc and then to filter and sort as desired. Then it would be very useful. Keep developing!

Get Your Geek Fix Anywhere!! This is an awesome app! On the go, you can stay on top of the forums of the games you love and the new hotness you want to know more about! I can't wait for them to add the ability to update your game library with new games you've purchased. You can't go wrong with this one.
