I must have been slacking this year. I can't take credit for any of the games that were checked out only once.

Edit: 1,406 different items checked out at least once. About a quarter of the game collection. Some opportunity for culling?

Yep, I saw all three of those (and played two) at the Hot Games tables. I believe Bruxelles 1893 took one of Glass Road's tables and Nauticus took one of Concordia's tables on the second day.

I would suggest pulling the 500 lowest ranked games (all copies) that have not been checked out in the last 4 (or more) years and place them on a new set of racks, the "Last Time for Love, Doctor Jones" racks. These are games that will not be brought to future cons. Do this each year to keep the library at a reasonable size, but not removing the games that people are actually looking at. If a game is checked out enough times from the LTfL,DJ rack, it is saved, but it needs to be a number greater than 1 or 2 times, with checkout times longer than a few minutes, to revive it. This will make space for the 500 or more new games each year, while giving the library the ability to self cull.

That checkout of Rallyman is thanks to me!

No wonder I could never find Milestones. Here I thought 1 person was hogging the game and it had been checked out 7 times.

The two checkouts for Pirates on the High Seas were because of my wife and I. We checked it out first and when I went back later that evening someone else had checked it out. I'm pretty sure someone saw how much fun we were having playing that silly kids game with the spring-loaded cannonballs that are wicked awesome to fire and decided to check it out for themselves.

Also, I'm pretty sure someone checked out Fluffy Bunny Tea Party because we saw it one night and had a good laugh at the name and said we'd have to come back and check it out. We could never find it again after that.

I'm glad I got to check out Jet Set. From the stats it looks like I was the only one who checked it out.

Thanks to exhibitor bingo, I discovered it. The vendor's description got me interested in it. I really enjoyed playing it and am looking to add a copy to my collection.

I am thankful for BGG and the CON.

I wonder how much availability skews the numbers. For example, I rarely saw A Study in Emerald available on the shelf (grabbed it the one time it was) or the numbers for it would certainly be higher; on the other hand, there were always multiple copies of The Witches available. Just looking at the numbers you might think The Witches was more popular (5 more players) when really SiE was quite difficult to get a hold of. Regardless, it's interesting to see the numbers!

I was kinda surprised that there was only one copy each of Age of Steam and Roads & Boats.

I am not sure that I agree. As a first timer, I was looking forward to playing games that I never played before. Some of these games were on the bottom of the list. I understand the wish to "clean up" the library a bit to allow new games. It is my understanding that this is only a small component of the entire collection. My worry would be that eventually the con would become a relatively new game only con.

However, I do not have a better suggestion either. All in all, a great experience. Will be coming back in the future.

I have to admit, despite being a firmly entrenched Cult of the New member, I also disagree with culling the unpopular in the BGG library. It should be a thing of wonder, and someone is going to stumble on an old gem on those shelves... if they are not there to play, nobody can rediscover old favorites or something different to try.

If you want all-new, all-the-time, Essen is your gig.

Not too many years ago BGG.con was a great place to go to play all the new games, and it wasn't nearly as hard to find what you wanted in the library.

In recent years it's become more and more important to bring our own copies of games that we want to play.

The long tail in the library is awesome, I don't think anyone is denying that, and there are significantly more just-released games than there were in the past, but I'd be curious to know how many of the new acquisitions actually got checked out and played.

My suggestion is not a matter of the cult of the new, this is a matter of burying the dead. If the con had the intentions of growing the library by adding shelves every year to accommodate every game they have ever received, they would not have culled this year and would have just bought more racks. It is a reality that some games will be leaving the library over the next few years as the convention no longer has the capacity to store and transport games that may be gems, but are not utilized by convention goers. It is not intended to be a museum, but an actively used library.

My suggestion was to give fair warning and an even easier way for convention attendees to find those gems that may be getting over looked and give them a final opportunity to be revived after five years of neglect. With the doubling in size of the convention, if games still do not attract attention after 5 years, even with a spotlight, they are doing nothing but taking up space for games that will get actively played. The five year time, and the starting from the lowest rated games has nothing to do with the cult of the new, it has to do with the longevity of a game and its ability to hold our attention.

A game may be a gem, but how long do you hold out on someone finding the needle in the haystack, even with bright flashing signs pointing to it, before you start sacrificing space for those games that players do want to play?

It may be a nightmare to handle, but what if you could vote on the games delivered to BGG.con? Once you have your ticket, you have a preset number of games you can request be in the library. The questions become:

How many games do you get to request?

What kind of deadline do you need to ensure that your selections make it onto the cart?

Is there a minimum number of votes needed to ensure a title is available?

It could be that a combination of the past years' library stats and the Twitter library system is an acceptable substitute, but it will take some time to gather up enough data to make it feasible and fair.

I like this idea, in general. If there's room in the hangar (where games are stored), I'd offer each attendee the option to bring back add back in a game that is still in the collection, but not planned for the library in a given con year.

Someone please tell who checked out Russian Railroads and kept it for the whole CON. I looked multiple times for a copy in the library and this list shows a copy checked out ONE TIME! Now I know why I couldn't find a copy in the library. whistle


Now that you mentioned it George, my wife reminded me that she had been looking for: Nacht der Magier during most of the convention. They told her it was checked out then checked back in but we could never find it until it magically appeared on Saturday night I believe. She checked it out as well so that would make 2 check outs.

Surprised it's not on the list.

Probably the Hot Game table that had it (the library copies get checked out to Hot Games all weekend).
