Throughout November and December, @trentellingsen and I have been working on combining Board Game Prices and Board Game Atlas under one roof. It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride, but we're almost there!
Here's a progress update:
- 100% of BGP's game pages are now redirected to BGA's
- We've redesigned some of our main pages (e.g. Home, Discover, and Deals) based on some of the parts we liked the most on BGP's home page. We also gave a slight visual update to our Kickstarter page. In the future, we plan to flesh out the Discover page by adding in features that will recommend you games based on your data
- "Comparison Cart" feature has been added
- New sitewide user settings - You can turn on settings that will prioritize price data when you visit a game page. You can also turn on settings to default to the country of your choice (US/Canada/UK). @trentellingsen has been working on expanding international support and price listings
- Trending page has been fixed. The page will update every hour to present the latest trending games based on our own traffic data. BGP's "Trending" section was done manually.
I'm glad I secured a copy when I did. I checked BGG's market today and saw that there weren't any copies left for the Black Box English edition. Looks like some gamers out there are splurging for the holidays!
