is it possible to have an option under status of "Interested"


There are a lot of games out there that I hear about and I only want to track or watch for a longer period of time.

THANK YOU! I have been desperate for this feature!

The issue with using the "Wishlist" options, even "DO NOT BUY" ironically, is that if you search for your wants in the BGG Marketplace those items show up. And I want an indicator that I can use to track games but WON'T show up in my Wants in the Marketplace OR in the Online Want List Generator for Math Trades.

Robert - This is a great suggestion

Why not use one of the Wishlist options, probably "4 - Thinking about it."

I don't think we need another status; it seems like there's enough and you could just "adopt" one for your use.


Yeah, that sounds like a good use of thinking about it. I'd go so far as to say the intended use . . .

Alternatively, just add it to your little bookmark quickbar at the top.

If you're not actually thinking of getting it, but want to mark it as of interest to you, surely "want to play" also works. Seems like that's why most games are made.

I feel like the subsection of people here who don't want to play or buy games and don't have access to a pen and paper is probably pretty small.

Have you tried using tags? Each game page has a "Tags" section where you can add your own personal tags such as "Tracking" or "Watching". Then you can select the "Tags" option under the "My Geek" tab at the top of each page and it will list all the games which you have tagged.
