I just started my own bgg account but my husband has had one for a year or so. Is there some easy way to import his owned game list into my owned game list? Thanks.

No. You can either share an ID, or you must each maintain a list of "owned" games.

I see you've already done it.

In case someone else reads this in the future the easiest way is possibly this.

Open hubby's collection.
Open one of these games in a new tab.
Click "customize layout" which is in the list towards top right of the game entry box.
Drag the user "info box" from the bottom to the top of the list.
Click "Return to [ name of game ]".
Click "add copy to collection" which is now at the top of the page.
Close tab.

Open lots of hubby's games at once in many tabs. "Add copy" is still at top.

another way
is to go to ADV. Search
enter the user's ID in the user field & check the box
then submit the search.
you'll have a list of all the games then
click the status box for each - marking it OWNED.

easier?

To make it even easier click the status box, when it pops up hit the space bar then enter. It will check the box then submit without needing to click around.
