Hi all! I love the BGG but I am curious if there is a german equivalent to it? Now that we have handy dandy automatic translators it would be neat to see what is being discussed by those that are in the boardgame capital of the world! Also, I find myself drawn to eurogames and not at all to American-style games. I am interested to see how the germans rate certain boardgames in comparison to the primarily North American BGG audience.

Thanks!

Happy Gaming!

I don`t know of a website but you might want to look into Spielbox Magazine. They have an English language translation that they put out, plus it includes promo bits!devil

Luding at http://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/luding/ is probably as close as you'll get.

There's um, a fair bit of love for Euro games here, too. And a lot of Germans.

Not that I'm aware of. The advanced search only lets you set a rating range or weight. It would be interesting however to see ratings broken down by country as over the years I've seen many games that get rated poorly by a European contingency at Essen get accepted totally different by the US/Canada crowd, and vice versa.

You can do it only for games separately. Go to a specific game, jump to stats and then click on the round button right next to the average rating. There you get the ratings breakdown by country.

Have a look here.

It is not really comparable to BGG but a portal for all interested in board games too. Be warned all in German, but that's what you have asked for

No, there isn't. I've often wondered why that is, and I believe the answer is that gaming is too widespread around here. As a result we have a number of game-related websites (including the aforementioned Luding, Spielbox, or Hall9000), mostly focusing on slightly different aspects of the hobby. If you combined all of them in one endeavour I would guess you'd get something comparable to BGG. As it is, that behemoth doesn't exist.
