I'd like to know if there is a way the expansions I own will NOT add to the numbers of games I own. Right now, if I add a game to "board game expansions" , it will also increase the number of "board games I own".

I did my homework of searching here but only found about tags and filters and neither one of them will help me with my number crunching/control.

Is this option available anywhere? Or I just skip adding board game expansions (as I have so far)

To my knowledge there is no option. You can list your expansions in the game comment if you wish.

Or just add them all, but know that your 'true' games owned = OwnedBoardGames MINUS OwnedBoardGameExpansions.

The same is true for logged plays.

The 'Boardgame Collector' microbadges (mb mb mb - manually awarded here) take both games AND expansions into account (and so just use the OwnedBoardGames figure).

That's too bad. I'm not much of a expansion fan, only own those who really add to gameplay, but I believe that "artificially inflates" my owned list like small world stuff and catan island from 7 Wonders

Well considering you're from brazil, so probably have to pay import duties on each of those expansions equal to the cost of a regular board game anyway . . . the database is okay with it.

Having the same problem as FakeDutch. I´ve seen my collection "grow" artificially thanks to BGG adding expansions to my Games listing, even some promos appear as games!

Still, no real solution to this?

BGG doesn't add them, you do. When you put something in your collection and tick owned, that's +1 to the number of games you own, even if it's just a promo. You can put them in the game comments or you can not tick them as owned--you might set them to Wishlist=do not buy.

You can also filter your collection view to not show expansions. If you Permalink (top right) that view, you can put it in your Quickbar or in a browser bookmark and just use that link to get to your collection.
