I can't seem to make the "Adv. Search" work to do what I want -- does anyone know if there is a way to search my collection not just for games that *support* three players or more, but that *require* three players or more?

To put it another way, I'd like to view my personal collection with all games filtered out that can be played solo or for two players.

Thanks for reading!

Number of players: 3 to [blank] and click "Exact (include games that only support exactly this range)"?

Seems to work.

It gets you to the next question: does the game actually play well with that number? devil

I know you're kidding around, but for what I'm doing right now, I'm less concerned about the "plays best with" count. I'm pruning down my collection and thought I'd chip out a few that are mandatory multiplayer games and sell or trade those, since there's less chance of playing them.

I'm most interested in the "plays best with" numbers as well, but so far as I know you can't get that number with Advanced Search. Even if you could, the reliability would vary because some games have few if any voting on which numbers work best. (I find that I can usually glean that info from the comments using Analyze, but I have an unusually large geekbuddy list.)

Try this: http://bggview.retrobox.eu/view.html?username=YourScreenName

It can sort your collection by:
Allows 5
Good with 5
Max 5

(or any other number)

It's a really pretty and efficient tool.

That's totally spiffy!! thumbsup


It doesn't do what I initially wanted that I can see, which would have been "Min 3", but it's still a nifty tool to know about.
