Hi all,

I am trying to find board games that are "best played" by a certain number of players. For example, Agricola supports 1-5 players, but is best played with 3-4 according to its page. How do I search for games that are best played by, say 4 players, and have Agricola and other such games pop up?

I tried using the Advanced Search feature and the # of players range (min) to 4, but that doesn't always give what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

I'm afraid the BGG user best-number-of-players poll was put into the system after Adv. Search, so I don't know of a way to search by it.

Ah, that's too bad :( Thanks for the response though. I wonder if there is a way to get a Feature Request in for this.

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.

I can't find it right now, but somebody created a series of GeekLists.

Top 20 games with best played by 2.
Top 20 games with best played by 3.
etc.

But yeah, otherwise, no easy way to search for it that I'm aware of.

BGG Suggestions...but, they have so many suggestions, they can't implement them all.

A geeklist of geeklists: The best X player games according to algorithm

People create these kinds of Geeklists occasionally. You could ask how they're created to generate your own on demand.
