Here are some incredible visualizations of BoardGameGeek data such as ratings, etc. PLUS the tools to create more.

Good advert for my office (data visualisation is very relevant to my work!).

Neat, I like the 'blob chart' that shows a games not only rating (proximity to center) but also the appeal (number of people rating which correlates to people playing)

Very cool!

One extremely interesting thing I noticed: On the last chart, under Steve Jackson, it lists a ton of game with a Dice Rolling mechanic. Most of these are flavors of Munchkin. Although there are circumstances in which you do roll a die, I wouldn't exactly consider it a main mechanic of the game (although clearly BGG disagrees with me here) :-)

Bookmarking this with the intent to come back later. Why did I read this thread after 11pm?

Edit: Yes, I still haven't gone to bed yet. And I can see I'm going to need a bigger data set with more categories!

Great article! Now I'm brainstorming for other things to make charts of...
