Subject: Add a New Index "Occupied Area" for Board Games rss

When playing board games, I sometimes meet a embarrassing situation, that the game occupies too large space and the table is not big enough to set up all the components. So if there is a index that can indicate the area a game may occupy, it will be much easier to either select a suitable game to buy or seek a better place to play.
Obviously the index "Occupied Area" is a range of number, because for many board games the occupied area will increase when the number of participants increases. The data can be evaluated from the rule book (from the set up pages) or supplied by geeks (just like the index "Weight").
This is some of my ideas.

You don't have to wait for it to be an official field (and it would be a hard thing to enter), but you could put something like this in the More Info wiki on each game's page.
