I'm new on this website and I have searched the forum and around the website for this info without luck. How can we add (or tell to add) a board game that is missing from the database?

Thanks,

Under the Misc menu at the top, there is Add to Database, and then Board Game. I'm not sure if there is a time period before you can add something, but probably not because it is moderated.

Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. I guess I didn't search enough, sorry.

Thanks again!

Welcome to BGG!

You can check this BGG link to determine if the game is already on the waiting list for approval after being submitted by another Geek:

http://boardgamegeek.com/items/boardgame/pending

Thanks for contributing to the BBG database.

(Approval of a new item usually takes a few days, BTW.)

You may also need to add the designer and publisher to get the game's record published (assuming they are not already in the database). These can be added via the misc window again. You can communicate to the admin via the 'notes to admin window'. Further, info can be added to a record via navigating to it and pressing the 'corrections' button.

Thank you both for your two additional advice. I personally figured that already (checking the queue list and the publisher), but I guess it can be useful to have that info in the thread if somebody else is searching the forum.

Thanks.
