and I want to add that game.

How do I go about doing this?

Does the game have to be something that can still be purchased?

Does it have to come in a box?

If being a game that 100s of thousands purchased and may still have around, but never thought to add here, or just don't know about BGG, does it still count as a game?

I still have it, and many would be familiar with it immeadiately, but they wouldn't realize it may have included a game.

I really think a posting for it would be fun. After a conversation recently I realized I need to play it and cannot recall if I ever did, though I posses it.

I looked and searched, it's definitely not listed on BGG.

What should I do? How can I propose to list an old game?


Curious toads want to know! Can a Mod help? PM me if you have clarifications or questions, I really think it could be a neat addition to the massive database already present (Much like the list of Avalon Hill games brought up recently in a geeklist).

Thanks for feedback and consideration by the way.

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
You can submit a game by going to Misc->Add to Database->Board Game. However, read https://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/BGG_Guide_to_Game_Submis... first (it is linked from the submission page).

Thanks both of you!

I will dig into it and see if it's feasible.

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
I don't know if this can help as an example but the card game designed by the computer game Civilization IV lead designer was (as far as I know) only included in the boxed Civilization Chronicles computer games compilation.
It's in the database: Sid Meier's Civilization: The Card Game

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
I'm definitely going to try to list it, but it's a matter of having time to do it properly.

From what I have gathered, pictures for examples cannot be from here but from a defined source.

I am working on that matter.

Once I have time, and feel comfortable enough (there's nothing naughty about the game, but the trademark factors and whatnot), then I am going to give it a shot.

Of course, my time to finalize the submission and all is a huge factor too.

It won't break my heart if it makes it or not, but now looking back at it, I feel it's something that's just fun enough that the world needs it documented somewhere.

BGG just seems the place to do it.

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
Why are you being secretive about the game? Just say what it is, it might already be listed under a different name, or someone can help you if they also have a copy. Your posts in this thread seem odd and suspicious.

Hmmm. Sounds like a game that was a promo? It wouldn't have its own box and would have to be included with something that lots of people purchased anyway. My first guess would have been the game that came with the Goonies DVD a while ago, but I think it's in the database.

Edit: Yep, the Goonies game is there, but the analysis still stands.

In addition to what this person is saying, if it was something that was released in multiple languages, it may be posted already using a non-English name.

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
For this 'matter', along with FUTURE 'reference', then perhaps also displaying the LINK for "queue of games submissions" already "in the pipeline" would become of greater assistance in A-L-L places it should pertain. Hell, they'd even PUT theirs where it is NOT the least bit expected, since; what do they KNOW any/NONE better?

LOL both of you are warm. Sorry for the delay in replies, work and all...

See that's why I'm not sure, maybe I'll just get a few of your opinions.

It's from an old record of mine, Triumph: Just a Game.






A closer image of the game, though I should probably try and get one with a better resolution.



I couldn't find it in searches, so I thought maybe it belongs. It's very Ameritrashy!

I have a friend who is a big Triumph fan. I'll have to ask him about this. As a prog rock and metal fan, I love when bands think outside the box.

Hmm.. according to the picture, there are no rules. That would make it an activity and not a game.

This is just an example of 'something that's lost with the death of vinyl". I remember so many good times, buy that album, spending hours peering at the album art, reading along with the lyrics that were on the sleeve protecting that album as I listened carefully, track by track.

With digital downloads, CDs, etc. That really gets lost. There's not a good way to put a board game with a download... nor purpose when 0101010101011101 cannot lay on a table in front of you.

Of course! It's Rock & Roll and making a career! There's not going to be any rules!

Re: Say there's a game that's not listed in BGG
Well, I finally had the time to get a better picture of the game on the inside fold of the album.



Feel free to go to the image to see the original if you need more detail!

So now, it's time to vote.

What are your feelings?

Should this be a game in the queue to be listed on BGG for all eternity?

Or,

It's a one-shot dealio and not worth the bits it would take up on the interwebs storage.

Let your voice be heard!

Poll
So, in this situation, should this be a game listed on BGG?
Yes, it's a game and looks like fun!
Yes, it's Rock & Roll trash baby!
Yes, it's a game, but might be frustrating. Would play with alcohol.
Yes, why the heck not!
No, I don't like games with dice.
No, I don't like games with no rules.
No, I never heard of whoever and Vinyl is dumb.
No, I can't buy it so I can't support it.
Maybe, what does 'No Rules' mean?
Maybe, if you buy me my next drink.

Ok, it's my first poll, so be easy on me! blush

This will run until New Year's Day. Based on the votes, I will determine if I should submit this game to the BGG Game Archives.

Thanks ahead of time for your thoughts, comments, feelings, and votes.

May the dice gods look upon you with favor!
