Board Game Finder website launches to help recommend new games to you

“I like X, Y, and Z, and mechanics A and B, can anyone recommend a game to try?” is a common thread that pops up on Board Game Geek over and over again, hoping the the discerning board gamers can help them out.  But what if a website could help you do the same thing?

That’s what boardgamefinder.net wants to do, and I think it does a pretty good job of it.  Once you go to the site you can start listing games, categories, or mechanics that you like and it will output a list of game recommendations.  You can then click on each result to get more information about the game as well as info like player count, length, weight, and BGG rating.  With this site you can now quickly and easily get a lot of recommendations for you to try within having to poll the masses.  Is the site perfect?  Of course not, but it is definitely a useful tool to have bookmarked.

I’m an engineer manager by day, board game entusiast by night. I will play most anything once but I love adventure style games and cooperative games, or just playing games with my wife. Games like the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, TIME Stories, and 7th Continent really hit on all those marks for me and I love discovering new gems.
