Is there some way I could find gamers who share a similar game collection? I'm hoping to expand my collection, and I'm assuming that people whose lists are nearly identical to mine would have other games that I'd probably like. (I'm hoping this makes sense...) Thank you!

Someone made a website where you could put in your BGG name and it would find other users who had a percentage of the same games, but I can't remember what the URL is (and I don't seem to have bookmarked it). soblue

I hope someone else posts it, here.

This is a (the?) thread.

Not sure of its current status, though.

Thanks! This is the page I was thinking of (I bookmarked it, now ):

Thank you for the help! Unfortunately, angramainyu (Alex Wilson) seems to have stopped helping people with their lists back in January, and Mikko Saari's site needs at least 75 rated games... I think this ought to be a BGG tool.

I'm guessing that even if their collections are similar, you'd really need to consider their ratings too.

Given that, here's a different way of approaching it:

Each game page also has a 'Similarly rated' page, (linked to in the Statistics section). This page looks at which games are highly rated by people who rated this game as a 9 or 10 - although actually you can configure the exact values yourself. Here's the one for 7 Wonders: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/similar/thing/68448.

So you can go to your favourite games and see what other games people who rate it highly also rate highly.

One limitation is that the page includes items from RPGG and VGG too. Until a proper filter is implemented, you can largely exclude these by increasing the minimium number of raters required to 100 or so.
