I keep coming across cool little things, and figured I'd post them here for people that might miss them. It's possible some of these things were doable in the old design, but I'd never run across them there, so my apologies if some the the functionality shown here isn't new.

Of course, there are also the obvious things like the ability to add a game to your collection, or the ability to log a play being much more obvious and accessible!

Feel free to list anything you've come across that you've found handy!

Filtering User Ratings By Comment

One handy thing that I'm pretty sure is new is the ability to filter ratings to only those that also include a comment. Furthermore, you can filter by rating, so you can filter down to only comments from people who either loved or hated the game, for example.

Adding to Collection from the Expansion Tab

A nice tool for making sure you don't miss any expansions for your favorite games! Note this also works from the Linked Items tab as well for accessories and other related games.

Linked Items

Not a new feature, but something I feel like a lot of people never knew exited in the old site. See all of the database items that have something in common with the current item you're looking at!

How about the 100 quick slots vs the 10 on the old page?

I know I always found the 10 slots to be too limiting.

I love the the BGG ID (the game's number in the database) is now on the actual game page, rather than just in the address bar. It's a small thing, but handy at times.

How sticky is your ZOC?

You can collapse the hotness bar under your quickbar and recent items.

so you don't have to resist all the CotN and KS crap that's being blathered about.

I never look at the hot new items and now I don't have to even see it.
Ignorance is bliss
