https://gameshelf.github.io is the site I build, clicking into it will display my collection.

You can load up your collection by appending your BGG user ID in the end https://gameshelf.github.io/?userId= (only need to do it for the first time, Cookie will remember it for future load).

The reason I build this site is because my collection has grown quite a bit since I started this hobby, and it become not so easy to pick a game to play for the game nights.

I honor the best # of players on BGG for the best play experience, but that data is only displayed in the single game page on BGG, and clicking into each candidate for the game night become a pain. Then game length game length is also important. So the only filter I build is best # of players and game length.

Note: the best # of players data is missing for most of the game, because that data is coming from exporting one's collection, and I have not added all the games into my collection... So, it is missing for most of the games.

Hope this site if useful for some people.

Very nice but seems to ignore my user name.

https://gameshelf.github.io/?userid=kbieb still appears to be showing your collection.

User ratings are messed up. I have unrated games being rated as 0 or 1. Actually, there are games rated which I haven't. Patchwork is a 7.

Yes, blocking Cookies is the cause, but I just pushed out a fix, so it should work for you now.

You should use plezercruz, rather than Pete.

What are the 2nd and 3rd inputs for?
Nothing changes when I change these values.

Cool!

I like that the weight is shown. But it doesn't seem to be there for all games?

I wasn't blocking cookies and the fix did not help.

I checked the cookie for your site in Developer's Tools (Chrome) and it had your user name for the value. I changed it to my user name and refreshed and it worked. It looks like the cookie got written the first time I accessed the page with your user name but then didn't get overwritten when I added my user name to the URL.

@Pete: I had to hit the refresh several times before it pulled the data.

Strange, it should alway overwrite the userId whenever it is provided.

Well, I retested it and it did the same thing. I access the site once with no URL variables and the cookie is created with your username. I access it again with my name as the userid variable and the cookie does not change. I manually change the value of the cookie and then I see my collection.

It sounds like it is working for some folks though.

I found the problem, you were using userid rather than userId.

This could come in handy - nice work

Although I'd probably rather the number of players field was the allowed number of players, not the best count

If I'm organising a game day with 6 people - I want to see the games I can play, even if its not necessarily optional with that count.

^^This!

Great idea otherwise, though! I came to BGG hoping for this functionality and was stunned that it was lacking in this regard.
