This was an idea just to take the pulse of the board gaming community here at BGG. I don't have a massive collection of games like a lot of you at home, but I feel it's respectable. as I was looking at my respectable collection the other day, I was trying to determine what to play. I almost had AP trying to make that decision. I have the Kallax shelving like so many of you do, but have not yet figured out how to stack game boxes so that they're all visible given how deep the shelves are.

That said, I thought it would be great if there were an app that would allow me to plug in different criteria for what game to select. How much time do I have to play? How many players do I have? Any game mechanics I'm interested in delving into for that session? The idea was to create an app that would comb through your listed BGG collection that you listed as being owned, and then based on the criteria that you select, the app will make suggestions for you based on those criteria.

Is there an interest in an app like that?

Hey that's pretty cool. Thanks for the link. I can base a mobile-specific app on a website like that perhaps. Or think about how a design like that would work at any rate. Thanks again!
