Is there an easy way to know how many games in my collection can support 6 players?

Yep! If you use the advanced search feature, there is a checkbox that can filter to games in your collection. There is also a place to put in the number of players.

This link should work (just for you, I specified the username ): http://boardgamegeek.com/geeksearch.php?action=search&advsea...

Hmm.. I'm not seeing it. Thanks for the link but it is showing the number of "plays" not players. Although that isn't a bad idea. I could use that column to indicate the player max since I don't record my plays.

Or am I missing something? I looked through the filters and views but didn't come across this yet.

Side note: I did find that the BGG app for my phone has a searchable feature for the number of players so that helped a lot.
