There should be a way to add a weight column both when viewing your collection and when viewing search results. You should also be able to sort by this column.

I know advanced search allows me to search for games within a given weight range, but the results screen doesn't even have a column that shows the weights.

You can accomplish that by downloading your collection and viewing it in a spreadsheet, e.g. Excel.

Okay, but it should be doable within the site, not a bunch of work outside the site... and that doesn't address the issue of showing weight in search results (especially when searching by weight range).

My copy of Orleans Deluxe with the Invasion expansion easily weighs 5 pounds.

HaHa. True. But, you can't sort your collection by weight to be sure that Orleans Deluxe is your heaviest game. You're just going to have to weight them individually and jot it down in an Excel spreadsheet and sort them there.
