I use the Advanced Search extensively to keep myself updated on what new games are being released in the future. It’s a great tool, but recently I found that I’m lacking a function, the ability to include or exclude categories listed under “Family”.

I have no interest in Kickstarter games. I have full respect for people who do, but it’s just not for me. Kickstarter games are listed under Family, and it would be great if you would be able to exclude/include them from your search.

I’m sure that adding the Family option to the Advanced Search would have other benefits to other users as well.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

That is already there -- the bottom of the advanced search has 'Filter on Board Game Subdomains' and that is where Family Games is.

But the better idea, I think, is to stop having Kickstarter games show up as Family games -- how did that happen? I think kickstarter is big enough by now to deserve its own category.

Ah, a misunderstanding. It is not the Family Games Subdomain I’m referring to, but the Board Game Family. If you click on a game it’s listed as the seventeenth entry, just above Primary Name.

Short answer -- planned in re-design, but not considered priority to take focus away from the redesign work to implement it on the current site.
