Right now, there is no way in the site's advanced search to query for expansions for the games I own.

I think it'd be rather easy to make such a query, and I suggest you add it to the site.

¿is it true that there is some sort of web services API to BGG data? whare can I find info about it... if I could just run the sql query, I'd have the info I need =)

In the advanced search, you can set the category "Expansion for base-game", then make sure the check box for "Search games owned" is also checked. I think that will get you what you want?

As to your second question, see here: BoardGameGeek XML API
But check the end of that thread for the newer version of the API

Unfortunately, checking "Expansion for base-game" + "Search games owned" in advaced search will only return me a list of expansions I own.

What I want is a list of expansions for the base games tyhat I own. Ideally, "expansions I don't own, for base games I do own".

I checked both versions of the API, and the search features seem to be based on regular item search, or searches within "my Collection", nothing like a global search correlated to my collection, nor a SQL-ish search.

I ended up querying by hand, opening the page of game in my collection and checking manually which expansions it listed

Bump! This would be an awesome feature if it's at all feasible!
