I am trying to enter my collection of games and have a couple of questions.

1. It will not let me enter Coup d'Etat even though it is listed in the games database. How do I enter this game (or Tactique, another game I have that is not in the database)?

2. Is there an easier way to enter a long list of games than selecting the Add A Game button for every one?

1. Coup D'Etat should be addible. I just did to test it. You could navigate to its record and select 'add to collection' under user information. Also try typing only a few letters then selecting it from the list that comes up.

Tactique (1984) is in the database and should be addable.

2. I don't know of an easier way to do multiple games.

Yes but it may depend on your games. For example, if you type "ASL" into the search box, it will bring up all the ASL games and modules. If you were to have lots of those, you could click on the "status" column for each game and simply click on the "own" box.

Another option is using the advanced search box and specify a certain category like "mafia" games for example. All such related games will appear and again you could use the status column to update those you want to your collection.

There may even be other ways that an admin person may know about.

Thanks for the options.

I do have one game that I am pretty sure is not in the database; Discovery of Australia.

How do I get this into my collection?

Yup I think you're right we don't have it we do have: Discovery of India.

How to get Discover of Australia in your collection is to add it to our collection:
http://boardgamegeek.com/item/create/boardgame

After it is approved you will be able to add it.
