I'm always amazed by apps that I find incredibly useful that I somehow never knew existed for the longest time so I'm throwing this out there:

I'm looking for an app that randomly selects a game from your collection (preferably pulling from the BGG list). Would be nice if it was smart enough to exclude expansions, or even better allow the user to set individual rules for choosing expansions when certain games come up (for example, Dominion+random number and type of expansions, Arkham+one random expansion).

There is one, but I can't for the life of me remember where I downloaded it from now. It even exports your collection from the BGG database. I think it's called simply "What Shall We Play?".

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but at least you know that a search won't be completely in vain from the beginning!

Are you thinking of "What to Play" ?

There is also: I Don't Know, What Do You Want To Play?, but that's more of a manual randomness.

Do you mean an iPhone app or a general computer application? Because you should check out What to Play.

I will check out What to Play for sure. Should have been more specific though that I was originally referring to an iPhone app.

So let me get this straight....

I'm going to use an App to randomly select a game to play...

....A game that will have no dice or other random factors?

Huh?
