Is it possible to do a quick comparison between a users collection and another user, or perhaps guild, specifically looking for "stuff only I have"? This would be very helpful to help narrowing down what games I want to bring to a meetup, etc.

This will allow you to compare the collections of several users at once :

Not sure if it will do all you want, but you can always give it a try.

Yeah, I had found that, there also used to be a tool explicitly for doing this between two users, but it doesn't seem to be up any more. Ideally I want to enter in two usernames, or a username and a guild name, and have the output be "Here are the game that the first username has and the second username (or guild) does not"

If a guild has 40 members in it, the above tool is a little unwieldy.

For Windows (and Linux/Wine) there is BGG2nanDECK. This is the download page:
http://www.nand.it/nandeck/

And this is the direct download url:
http://www.nand.it/nandeck/bgg2nandeck.zip

For example, if you want to know what titles you have, that doesn't appears in the guild "BoardGamers of Michiana", you have to follow these steps:

1) write rhitmojo in the text box to the right of the "Load from user" button.

2) Click "Load from user" button and wait until the list on the left is filled with game IDs. Also a number appears below the button, showing the number of games (in your case, 465).

3) Click on the "..." button on the right of the "Load from user" button. This is an option to specify more than one username.

4) Write 733 in the text box below the "OK" button. This is the guild's ID, you can find it in the guild's URL:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/view/733

5) Click on "Load guild" button, the program load a list of 73 users.

6) Click your name from the list and click on "Delete" button. For this query you have to remove yourself.

7) Click on "OK" button.

8) Select "Sub" option in the box to the right of the username box. This is important, because you want to subtract the guild's collection from yours.

9) Click on "Load from user" button and wait. It's a bit long because the program must load info for 72 collections. The list on the left is filled with game IDs, in this case there are 90 games.

10) Optional, if you want a list of info for these games, you can click on "Load games" button, and again, wait. This list can be:
- printed, with "Print list"
- saved in an Excel file, with "Save as Excel" button
The list is already saved in a text file, named "result.txt" in the program's folder.

That's all. This program can do several other things. If you have some question, I'm here.

Thank you very much! This is exactly the kind of collection manipulation I was looking for!
