Now I know that some people list components of the game in the descripton or by uploading a file with the components listed, but I think it would be great that under the game name (or anywhere on the game page really) there was a link to the game's components. This way if someone doesn't list the components in the description, or if a file gets lost in a sea of game files, there would always be a set space for the game's components.

Good idea? Who knows, but I think it would be useful.

A lot of game rules include that information. (Many wargames include a scan of the counter sheets so you can determine if any counters are missing.)

For those that don't, that'd be a handy feature.

I think this feature would more or less shine when you get a game from ebay, a trade, or a thrift store that doesn't come with the rules or any sort of listing.

How about a "more information" link ala amazon? It could include component lists, product codes, UPCs, ISBNs, suggested age range, box dimensions, etc. That way the main listing doesn't get cluttered.

Agreed! thumbsup
How else would we know if all pieces are there? And not all rules inventory the components (though they should).

Fab idea about the component listing and I fully support the idea of supplying the suggested age range (as the proud dad of a game playing 5 year-old), although I'd advocate the age range as a piece of information I'd put on the first page for any game.

Age Range - I was just submitting my first games and wondered why this wasn't already there
Component Listings - Great idea. Probably should be a "second page" type thing. I actually think the game page really should be just a top level page and everything else you click from the main page to get (ie don't show all the stuff unless I ask for it).
