I mark every game I come across that sounds interesting as "WTP" so I know its a game I want to play once eventually. At this point, I feel I've played a lot of games since joining the hobby, and I want to start filtering through this list and searching. My list is below:
http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/NowOrNever88?wantto...

How can I search through this list/filter it specifically? The Adv. Search only lets me search games I own, but I want to look through this list and compare playtimes, rankings, ratings, player counts, etc like I do with all games in the Adv Search function.

Thanks!

I'm guessing that you don't realize that games marked "Want To play" are included in your BGG "collection." The normal notion of a collection is physical ownership, but at BGG your collection is any game for which you have entered personalized data, except plays.

So you can manipulate you collection for some of what you seek.

You can also download a CSV file of your collection which has more columns of data. That will allow more manipulation.

Finally there are various aps which manipulate BGG data.

May I ask how I download a CSV for it?

And is there a way to filter my collection to only search the WTPs alone, not the Owned games?

--------

Try "My Geek >> Collection" from main menu and just manipulate columns of your collection.
