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.

Good App functions well but is missing some key features.

Lacking features, but still good. I really wish there were more features and options for me to drill down for specific information about games (like I can on the website) but so far it is the best game in town (hah) and I can at least check board game ratings while I am out shopping.
