I went to the Geekdo user listing and found 693 games in the "listing of the BGG library collection". I thought there were more games in the library. Is this a temporary result of the Family and Sea events?

That's the old collection.

The new collection is under BGG Library with the stored games in BGG Storage.

Is there a filter in BGG where you can see only games on a user's list that are on your "Want to Play" list?

Hey Jeff,
I heard that one could request games to be available from storage for the CON. I was told games that aren't checked out for an X number of years in a row go into storage. True? And if so, where do we request a game from storage to be added to CON Library? Thank you!

Last year I setup a geeklist but I wasn't planning on pulling games back from storage this year. Was there something in particular you we're looking to rescue, or are you just asking in general?

Can we request additions to the library? I was dumbfounded last year when I found out there wasn't a copy of Merchants & Marauders in the library. It's not in storage either! It's in the top 150! Probably the highest ranked game that's totally absent.

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

New additions to the library are nearly all publisher donations. Ask the publisher. :-)

@Jeff, thank you for quick reply.
It's ok. You all are busy! No special requests.
I was curious because a few years ago I physically saw The Mystic Woods and The Sorcerer's Cave on the library shelves, but then it wasn't there last year (now I don't even see it listed in storage inventory so maybe it's just gone). That's when I was told that games not checked out get removed to storage. I didn't even know about storage...the game vault, awwwww! surprise

There was never a copy of M&M in the library. The year it came out, I kept checking the library and it was never there, so I went to find out who had it. They didn't have one, and AFAIK, one was never donated. (I would have had words with Zev, but he wasn't really running things by the time I had the chance.)

It looks like we will have one copy on loan.
