I was trying to find games that supported 6 players. So, I went to the Advanced Search and selected my range as 6 to 6, Normal. (As well as a couple other criteria: user rating and max play time)
But the search results still shows me games that do not support 6 players. For instance, the 2-player game Bushido shows up.

What am I doing wrong?

I don't remember. But it's very odd,I remember that. Did you try exact search?

I tried it, 6-6 normal, and I got Bushido too. I also only got 50 pages of results, up to the letter C. Same if I search 5-6.

Looking at the Bushido entry, it had min 2 max 0 players. I put a 2 in the max player field to see if that would help.

Exact would exclude games for 7p or 8p.

Ick don't do that. It makes it exactly the range you selected.

Worse, it seems to require 6-6 be printed on the box so to speak.

6-10 seemed to work but I'm on mobile is hard to tell.

I did try the exact match with 6 and 6 and it returns 0 results.

6-10 still returns Bushido. Perhaps there's just something wrong with the Bushido listing and I shouldn't be using it as a litmus test.

Looking at it more, there are other games that are not in the range that are showing up... and all of them appears to be 2-player games. I suspect that there's something about the way the data is structured for games that have a set number of players that causes them to be included in in all searches.

I tried it again, and Bushido wasn't included. So I think entering the max 2 fixed it.
