Hi folks,

I noticed that when I go to rate a game I own, there’s an ‘Advanced’ link below it where you can add private information about how much you paid for the game as well as other info.

I am wondering if I do this for all the games I have bought, is there some way to view the total I’ve spent on my little game collection? Or is this feature available somewhere else on BGG?

(I realise a lot of people would not want to know their total board game spend 😂 But I thought it would be a good feature and is probably already available somewhere on the site).

Thanks!

You should check to see if there are any tools that export your BGG collection information. If so, if you consistently format the information in that field, then you can probably import the data to Excel or some database platform for analysis.

Lol yeah. I guess that’s why you have to export the data and put it in an Excel spreadsheet. BGG is a happy place, but nothing good happens in Excel spreadsheets 😂

No, it's good, like keeping track of your calories.

If you go to a game that you have rated, next to your star rating there is a link that says ‘Edit’. Click on that and scroll down to the bottom of the window and click on the link that says ‘Advanced’.

In the collection view, it's the Private Info column.
