logging plays

Post  RikTheChief on Wed 09 Sep 2015, 14:04

I have been logging all my plays on Board Game Geek, I have now played 106 different games. I can now officially start a top 100 list! (I'm not going to...!)

Does anyone else log their games? Do you record the no of players, scores or just no of plays?

I did for a while last year - managed to keep it up for maybe a couple of months before running out of steam...

Yes I do it too...Just what I've played and when, not scores and players etc.... just for my own interest really - I'm not sure that it would be interesting to anyone else!?

I rate a game after I play it, so I suppose I'm keeping track of what I've played

up to 85ish, so I'm closing on the 100, give me a couple of weeks Very Happy

Yep, I've been logging the games (just games, not results) on BGG for almost a year now and have played nearly 200 different games in that time. Not sure that the data is particularly useful, but it's interesting to look back over.

I've been logging my plays since some time in 2013. I've got a couple of hundred unique plays and it's been somewhat useful for deciding what games to sell and, more importantly, what game to take to every game night until someone plays it with me.

I also use the BGG app which, whilst useless for just about everything else, is excellent for logging plays.

Yes, me too, and I agree!

Is it just me who is surprised that a site as full of nerds as BGG hasn't yet overhauled its website and app to make it a bit more, er, 21st century?

My general experience is that nerds make shitty designers Smile

I quite like the lo-fi, late nineties look and feel of BGG. It would be nice if it was a little more intuitive.

Yeah, I always feel like I'm probably missing out on a bunch of features that are hidden somewhere...

I started logging games around the time of the UK Games Expo. I was taking note of the game, what position I finished in, and how much I enjoyed the game from 1 to 3. It didn't last very long and I only have ten games in the list. The 1/3's were Hook! and Diamonsters and Clacks (next to which I noted "Belongs on The Star's puzzle page"), and the 3/3s were Om Nom Nom, Sushi Go, Lords of Vegas, Urchonia and Skull. The games I won were Sushi Go, Extra Extra, Urchonia and Road Rally USA.

Looking back on them now it's nice to have this info as it makes it easier to recall the fun times I had playing the games, and knowing how well I did and how I felt about the game after playing makes for a more vivid memory and I would say is better than, for example, taking a picture of the games. It makes me want to start updating it again.

Every game I've played since April 2014 logged on BGG. I also log books I've read on Goodreads. I don't know why.
