It would be really nice, then, if "Games" didn't include the expansions count too.

What is the definition of an expansion? Yinsh can be played perfectly as a stand alone game. It's only part of a family of games, like the A&A families, and they are not concidered stand alones.

Until that is solved I don't mind seeing the expansions under the owned count.

Yes glad to see this as well.

I don't think it's that hard to simply subtract the Expansion count from the Total Games count.

If they had indeed removed the Expansion Count from the Total Games Count some people would certainly have gotten up in arms over their definition of what constitutes an expansion, potentially mucking up their collection stats.

Can't please us all.

This is a nice idea but there are flaws right now.

YINSH and TAMSK and Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers are currently listed under "expansions" in my profile. That doesn't make sense. Those are stand-alone games, not expansions.

Please fix! Keep up the good work.

I like having the combined version but maybe there should be a split. You can see all, games only, expansions only. I like having a master list since I know how many games I've got.

Additional stand-alone games listed as expansions: Wings of War, Zooleretto.

Can we select what's displayed by default in the collection summary tab? I dont rate expansions or use the marketplace so those areas are just clutter.

Can average rating come back?

Thank you! I really like this, and am looking forward to when you can select the expansions you used when recording a play of a base game.
Also, how are expansions determined? As they are "found"? I ask because my Expansion list shows "Tannhauser" as an expansion.
Finally, will we be able to have a selectable option set for our profile that will show us only base games in the game list, keeping them seperate from the expansions?

So far from what I see this is a non-issue. All that's been done is expansions have their own list now. The general board games list still contains everything. Unless I'm missing something, but we all know that's not possible.

I would like to see all three, games, expansions and everything be an option.

I recently answered a poll saying that I had between 10 and 20 expansions, but I now realise I have over 40. Was anyone else surprised?

If it can expand another game, it's an expansion.
If it can be played separately, it's a base game.
If it can be played separately but also expand a base game, it's both.

So why is Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers an expansion? As far as I know it cannot expand another game!
