I was curious if there was some sort of app that you put all you favorite games in and it suggest what game you need to try next. Maybe it uses the mechanics or theme or whatever it just gets the data and process it and out pops the next game you should check out. Maybe using the data from BGG. Didn't know, is there anything out there like that? Thanks.

I actually just published one yesterday! I'd love for some feedback/suggestions 

It has some limitations – namely, that it can’t currently exclude the games you already know about from the results – but I was interested in something that taught slightly-less-expert users about their preferences and allows people to filter based on the things they’re interested in, rather than hiding the rationale behind an algorithm you may or may not agree with.

I also did quite a bit of research on other tools, in case mine isn't quite what you were looking for.

Plus 1 for /u/boardgamerecommender. He helped with my wishlist, and also when I was shopping for my Reddit Gifts secret santa this year. My giftee didn't give me too much information to go off of, and it was very helpful!
