Subject: List of games by "weight"? rss

I see individual games have a rating for weight/complexity on their pages. Is there someplace where a master list (an equivalent of the popularity ranking list) is available?

My apologies if it's someplace obvious but I've looked and I can't find it.

Thanks for the links, but what I think he was asking for and what I was looking for is a way to have BBG sort it for us so that it is up to date. The people who put together those geek lists did great work, but they only include games that were in print at the time they were compiled.

Well, you can filter by weight using the advanced search. But as far as I know, there is no way to rank games by weight.

Thanks, they do help. But Mason's right; I was hoping for a master list.

At least now I know such a list doesn't exist and it's not just a matter of me being unable to find it.

I'm somewhat surprised though. It seemed like an obvious thing the board would have set up.

You can output to a flat data file your collection including all stats including weight. So There probably is the option in the API calls somewhere, or you could create a dummy account and add ALL games to it's collection and then output that...but I wouldn't recommend that for the effort involved!
