A few weeks ago I got a very serious warning at BGG for saying that I believe all lives matter and not only black. This was my second warning after writing a few months back that I am willing to play all kind of games, even those that include sensitive topics like slaves, war, etc. in a joyful fashion.
I am tired of that. Of not being able to express myself and being silenced (posts erased and no trace of them left on the original thread, so that the illusion of uniformity does not shatter) each time I post a disenting opinion about certain issues.
I wanted to know whether I would face the same issues here or if BGA team is more tolerant with us non-SJW.
Greetings! I just found this place because I saw an alert in boardgameprices.com that it was being acquired by Board Game Atlas. Is there any kind of integration between both sites planned? It is really being able to import all my collection from bgg to BGA and set alerts for my wishlisted games, but right now the "Rest of the World" links in BGA pale in comparison with ones in boardgameprices.com
Ideally, what I would love is to be able to set alerts for all my wishlisted games whenever they are on sale in Canada. Is that something feasible?
There are a few things that confuse me about the forum on this site. It may possibly be my fault, so maybe someone can help me with this issues:
1. While browsing the site, it is very difficult to reach the main forum page: https://www.boardgameatlas.com/topics
All the links are for "Hot", "New", "Active", etc, but it is not easy from there to see the "Suggestions" or the "Humor" forums, for example. I was only ablle to reach the page I linked above by searching directly on Google.
2. Is there any way to search the forums? I tried to use the top bar but it only could find games.
On a different topic, I tried to remove a game from my wishlist but when I click on the lists button on the game page, I get a permanent loading circle. Is that a bug? Is it known?
I despise rule exceptions. Also, I am not keen on blocking for its own sake. So yesterday we played with the following house rules:
1. No card reserves.
2. During your turn you can take 3 gems of different colors, 2 gems of equal color or 1 SHIELD chip.
3. No lower limit on available chips for the action above. If there are 2 yellow gems, you can pick them.
We played 2 games in a row and we all enjoyed the game. Desirable heroes were very contested and nobody had the sour feeling that you get sometimes when a perfect hero appears right after your turn and you know another player will reserve it simply to prevent you from taking it. We do not consider that strategic play at all. That's simply luck. And we can deal with a bit less of luck in Splendor just fine.
But this did not turn the game into a multiplayer solitaire. The third house rule allowed for much more aggressive gem blocking and we were often pleading other players to hire heroes so that a certain color was refilled. Having a healthy roster suddenly became very important because gems depleted so quickly that you could not rely on them for your recruiting.
I don't mind a lot about 1 to 3 stars, but I am a bit upset about the 4 and 5 stars. For me, there is a very notable difference between a game I rate as 8 and a game I rate as 9.5, yet BGA translates both as 4 stars.
I do not know what was the reasoning for chosing stars over numeric ratings, or even why limit to 5 stars and not 10, but I just wanted to voice my disagreement with the current system.
Hello. Yesterday I created a thread about Clank and Clank Legacy. Even though there have been several replies to that thread, being the last one about 20 minutes old, this thread does not appear on the "Recently Active" list of the Forums.
Now, please, do not think that I feel neglected or anything, I really do not care about it. But I just wanted to raise awareness of this behaviour because it may be the visible outcome of a bug.
Hello. I've noticed that notifications only go away if I click on the icon but do not go away even if the notification event has been dealt with in a different way.
For example, I receive an email saying that somebody has replied to a thread that I am subscribed to. I click on the email link to see the thread. I would expect the notification for this event to go away. But it does not. The notification remains there until I go to the notifications page.
Maybe this is how it's supposed to work, but I find it counterintuitive.
