Hi Everyone,

I remember reading a thread once about a score or a number that you give yourself based on the number of plays of a board game you have. I want to know what that score/number is called. If someone could link me to it that will be great.

I think it went something like this. You would rank your games by number of plays and you start counting down until the number of plays is lower than the game's respective number on your list.

I hope it makes sense. Thanks.

It's the H-index.

The Board Game Geek app will calculate it for you.

An H-Index of n means that you have played n different game titles at least n times each. So, an H-Index of 13 means you have played at least 13 games 13 times each, but have not yet played 14 games 14 times (otherwise, your H-Index would be 14).

Thanks everyone! Was planning to use the H-index to see how I can improve it by doing the 10x10 challenge.

Which app does that? I have two of them on my iPad.

You can get your h-index using friendless' stats site at http://friendlessstats.dtdns.net/dynamic/tabbed/{your bgg username}

You'll need to send an email to the guy that runs the site to get added. There's a crapload of information available there.
