This post was just more of the announcement that it had started. I'll be up doing a Q&A at 9am Pacific like the schedule says as well :)

I found the other videos, so I was looking at the wrong place :)

Would it be possible to include a JSON object with the reviews as a summary of the data:- number of total reviews- ratings average- number of reviews by rating (1,2,3,4,5 stars)Maybe even a filter to chose only the 3 star ratings for example.

Okay! All your feature requests are complete! https://www.boardgameatlas.com/api/docs/reviews. There's now a 'include_summary' parameter and a 'rating' parameter which should get you all the functionality you were requesting.

Yes. I can work on having that. I think I'll make it as a parameter called include_summary so that it can be added if you want that but without it by default to return the data faster.

I have a question regarding the user reviews. If I try to get them from the API the server returns me the TOP POSTS section of the game detail page, how can I get teh USER REVIEWS?

I send the following request:

https://www.boardgameatlas.com/api/game/reviews?skip=0&pretty=true&description_required=true&game_id=RLlDWHh7hR&client_id=SB1VGnDv7M

And it also returns a review without description.Where do I go wrong?https://www.boardgameatlas.com/search/game/RLlDWHh7hR

Take out the word game it's just /api/reviews. The URI you're using is to get "external reviews" like links to articles and such which are now forum posts.

Here's an example with your filters https://www.boardgameatlas.com/api/reviews?skip=0&pretty=true&description_required=true&game_id=RLlDWHh7hR&client_id=SB1VGnDv7M
