I apologize if this has already been answered, but I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer.

I have been recording my plays all year, including who I have played games with. Is there a way, either through the API or via export, that I can retrieve that information? I was hoping to put it into a spreadsheet or a database so I can get some stats on it.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

No fair! They're using brains against us! We removed our brains to make room for guns and explosives!

Aw, here I was hoping for a "woke up in my underwear on hotel rooftop with Settlers of Catan pieces scattered around me" kind of story.

And, sorry, I have no idea how to do that (but then again I don't record plays).

If it is possible, I would like to know too. It would be valuable to me, to have some way of finding out easily which games I have already played with which friends, (for those of us that have done the effort to register all plays and players).

If you don't record your plays, why do you then respond to this message?

Finally got a reply (after many, many Geekmails):

We don't currently have an API for plays. It is on the list of things we'd like to do in the future, but it isn't something I'd expect very soon.


Oh well...looks like I will have to create some kind of automated screen scraper. That won't be fun. yuk
