There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.
I have been looking for a "recommendations" engine, to find people with similar tastes comparing our rated games, so I could check recommended games based on my tastes.
All the threads I checked are old and guided me to outdated links. Is there anything out there like I asked? Thank you!
This is my favorite one so far.
Note that it doesn't load your BGG ratings. You have to manually add some games you like, then based on that it gives you recs. I like that though because for people like me with very diverse interests, I can add some of the Euros I like, then separately I can add some Abstracts I like, etc.
BoardGameFinder: Personalized Recommendations with Machine Learning
This one is interesting. It does load your whole BGG ratings based on your BGG User Name.
Note that there are actually 3 different algorithms used. You have to "rate" the first list (at the bottom) to see the others.
There were some odd recs (Candyland?!?!) but the 2nd and 3rd list had some promising recs.
