I am curious as to how people log their plays of Codenames in BGG. Do you log each turn of the player, pairings of players, etc.?

From box lid off to box lid back on again = 1 play

Completely the opposite for me. Each game, I think, is a separate event so I log them separately.

A game is finished each time one side found all words, or someone hit the assassin. That is what I log as one game.
Example: We play five games of codenames with five different clue givers. Each time, till one side has found all words, or someone hit the assassin.

I know people who only log a single game per event, regardless of how many rounds are played.

Since I use my record of games played to decide what to cull, I try to avoid biasing things too heavily towards short games that get multiple plays in a row. It's entirely personal preference in order to make the stats work better for me

I log each game, when I remember. If we play 5 times, I log 5 games as they are all different games.

Code names is "1 game played = 1 game logged" for me. A very few games are "1 session played = 1 game logged", but those tend to be the ultra short and quick games (Love Letter, Tapple, Click Clack Lumberjack, Loopin Louie, for example).

My play logging is basically there to allow me to see how much we're actually playing the games. I know a game of Codenames doesn't take long, but I log each individual game as I want to know if we played for over an hour on a given day compared to only having 1 quick game.

Likewise. I think I have 17 plays logged, but that's from 4 sessions. We like to binge on short games like Codenames, but each game I consider a unique event.
