Hi all,

If one goes to videogamegeek.com and does an advanced search for:

- Platform: iPhone
- Theme: Board Game

It shows a small number of board games that have iOS implementations. Yet the iOS video game geek blog:

http://videogamegeek.com/blog/164/ios-board-games

Shows many more games not included in the search. Is there something I / users can do to help improve the search? I wouldn't mind spending some time updating games in the database. I'm sure everyone, especially the "I just got a new iPad!" types would love to have a search return all games indexed on boardgamegeek.com that also have iOS implementations.

Yes. Do just that--update and populate the database.

Add an App to the database: http://videogamegeek.com/item/create/videogame
Correct a database entry for app: http://videogamegeek.com/item/correction/videogame/[database code]
VGG Data Entry Guide: http://videogamegeek.com/wiki/page/Video_Game_Guide_to_Data_...

I'll even work out a deal with you for some extra if it helps.

Meaning: I'll give you extra GeekGold above what BGG will to populate and update the database. Make me an offer!
