Recommend.Games now with BGA recommendations
You might have seen my site https://recommend.games/ which offers personalised board game recommendations based on BGG ratings. I've now come around to implementing a similar algorithm for BGA – you can see a preview at https://recommend.games/#/bga
This is a very hacky first version that most likely contains many bugs, and it's not linked from the main site yet, but I wanted to get it into the hands of the users here as early as possible.
While its primary purpose are personalised recommendations, it also gives recommendations for users who haven't rated any games yet, i.e., an overall ranking. According to this, the highest rated game on BGA is... *drumrolls*... Pandemic Legacy.
If you want to see your own recommendations, head over to https://recommend.games/#/bga, type in your BGA user name, and you'll see recommendations based on your ratings. Note that the number of ratings here are still fairly small, so recommendations might not be as meaningful as they could be. Also, the model needs to be trained on the full set of ratings which takes time to scrape and process, so any ratings you do will take time before they show up on recommend.games.
Let me know what you think!
