I thought I knew how to operate this site by now, but I can't seem to find a way to search for a particular family of games. Any ideas?

Used google search below

tigers site:http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamefamily/

"Tigers" is a keyword.

There are some groupings such as "Animals:", "Cities:", and "Magazines:".

Not sure I get it. Is that just for things with one word? Is there no way to do it inside BGG?

If I want to search for the Operational Combat Series for example?

Example of the above work around:

Search term:
site:boardgamegeek.com Operational Combat Series family

=
Google result

(Scratching my head though... I could swear I've done it in a different way before.)

I used the quickbar workaround described in http://boardgamegeek.com/article/7927678#7927678 and it works fine for me.

That's the one!

Works on multiple objects if you play with the code. Again BGG 2.0 hopefully will have these things built in.

A couple more imperfect ways to look for a family:

(Top menu) Browse / Families

Create a new forum message. Set the Insert Geek Link button to Board Game Family. Type, select, insert, preview, click the link. For example, type "opera", one selection is: Operational Combat Series Others are: GMT Operational System, VaeVictis WWII Operational series.
