Is there some way to use the BGG database to find games by filtering?

So something like hitting check boxes for "Worker placement", "Two players", "fixed number of rounds", "weight ≤ 3" and have some suggestions pop out?

Has the Adv Search changed in recent months or years? I seem to remember clicking more than one + box, and it acted like an OR filter (more boxes gave more results, unless you hit the - box to filter stuff out.) Now it looks like it works like you would expect: more + boxes narrows the results, rather than increasing them.

Unless I remember incorrectly.

It seems like the sections act as AND and choices within a section act as OR, with oddness around the excludes.

But it is better than where I was before...

I use the spreadsheet discussed here.

I have heavily modified it, using macros and the like. It acts as a game selection tool for games in my collection. Maybe this isn't what you are looking for, but I thought I would mention it.
