I recently started to record which games I've played and realised that a lot of what I play has no entry to go against. What I'm talking about are home written miniatures rules.

BGG has entries for plenty of commercial sets of wargames rules but in my experience there are plenty of people who still play with rules created by themselves, friends, members of their club, etc. These rules are never likely to be published, except perhaps as a magazine article, are only played by a few people and tend to change over time.

My own club has two rules writers (including myself) out of a dozen active members.

What do you think should be the attitude of BGG to such games ?

We could;

1. Simply ignore them.

2. Have an entry for any set someone submits details of.
(Would the admins actually accept this ?)

3. Lump them all in with the "unpublished prototype"

4. Have something a little more specific, such as entries for;
- Home brew miniatures rules (Ancient & Medieval)
- Home brew miniatures rules (Pike & Shot)
- Home brew miniatures rules (Black powder & Bayonet)
- Home brew miniatures rules (Rifle & Motor)

perhaps people could submit their own sets as files to such entries.
