I thought the BBG Owned file and Want to Play Geeklist I maintained got obsolete. So here comes the brand new revamped...

Berkeley Board Gamers Summary

Available in the file section. This time, I'm leveraging all your collection data on BoardGameGeek and rolling it up to BBG members. You will find games owned, games played, top rated, # of plays, want to play etc. Basically, anything you record into BoardGameGeek can be shown at the BBG level. Only thing stopping me from displaying everything is that some aspects of the data are heavily under-utilized by us right now (for trade, want in trade, comments, preordered). If we start using those flags, I can crunch them in.

This file will be updated much more often (every 1-2 weeks), as I've set it up to sync the data automatically from BGG in < 5 minutes. I will update more often if I notice our Geek ratings, want to play etc are more frequently updated (it got boring updating the Owned file, since things rarely changed). I will not post updates when the file is refreshed on here, unless something interesting happens.

I've pulled the Owned file and will no longer update the Want to Play Geeklist.

Please post below with your BGG username if you're not in the data right now, and you'd like to contribute your numbers. And if you're already in, please keep your collection data up to date!

Now also in geeklist format.

* BARating = [# of raters * average rating + (total # of members - # of raters) * Average Rating of all Members for all games] / (total # of members)

And some of us have been too lazy to list all of our games on BGG! tongue
