What is the best way to download a list of the top n (50, 100 or whatever number) games from BGG? I am looking to import into excel for some manipulation in comparison to my list of games owned.

Thanks!

EDIT: Changed title and number of games reference

Re: Download top xxx games
Hmm, you may not want to use xxx in a title....

Might get unwanted attention...

There's probably some slick complicated way to do it with an XML link, but I'd simply:

1) bring the games up in a list,

2) select all of the game names,

3) paste the selection into Notepad,

4) copy the Notepad contents and paste them into Excel,

5) use Data>Text to Columns to line it up.

You can make your recently viewed list much bigger.

Copy paste from this is possible with keeping all the links.


and perhaps the best way is to put them on your wishlist.
You can view both selections together or filter in my geek. And export your collection

Simply do a copy and paste into excel.

Every extra page is another 100 games.
