BGG has been in existence since January 2000, and over those nineteen years we've changed the logo only one time. With the site coming up on its twentieth anniversary in 2020, we thought it time to reflect on how BGG presents itself to the world of gamers.

The goal behind BGG is simple: Be the definitive resource for all tabletop board & card games. At the same time, we want to provide a place on the internet for everyone to share their passion for games in a respectful manner. Not everyone will agree on which games are best, but if you play games, we want you to feel that BGG is the best place to be to discover new games, post your pictures and thoughts on games, show off your game-related creativity, and otherwise geek out about games with those who share your passion.

BGG welcomes all gamers, whatever your level of experience or particular tastes, and updating the logo reflects our belief that gaming is for everyone, not just geeky guys with glasses. Whatever our differences individually, gaming brings us together. Our new symbol is a nod to BGG's past, while also inviting you to see yourself in that silhouette — or to find your passion for play represented in that "game flame".

Aside from the new logo, we have a consistent approach to branding, which you'll see reflected across the site, at conventions, and in our social media accounts. We feel fortunate that every day of work is also play for us, and our branding is meant to reflect that spirit of play.

We're excited to share this new look with you and millions of other gamers around the world. We know that we can't find a table in the real world that will seat all of us, but creating this space online lets us all come together and celebrate our joy of gaming.

If you run into any technical problems with the new changes, please let us know here in the forums.

Looks nice. Loads much more slowly.


This is my (brief) view while it loads. Looks like each section loads its own content dynamically rather than loading the entire page at once. If I close my eyes for 2 seconds when I refresh, I can pretend it's not there.

Looks much nicer, but not too drastic a change. I very much like that I can hide the hotness and replace that space with my quickbar.

Each page loading is a bit rough with the left panels loading in late. Hopefully those kinks can be worked out.

I was not immediately filled with rage when I saw the updated UI. This puts it above 99.9999999% of such updates.

Congratulations on a successful new look!

My first impression of the logo is what state outline are they trying to portray? I don't associate a silhouette or flame with it.

Looks good! I was concerned it would look bad, like Reddit. This is a great update.

The new look is fine, but wish they would get rid of those HUGE margins on both sides. I can practically play Twilight Imperium (Fourth Edition) in those margins!

The orange blob is bad, but the stark whiteness of the site may be enough to drive me away. I swear it was a little bit tinted before.



And here I thought we got rid of Ernie to reduce the whiteness of the site....

I tried to guess what the logo was supposed to represent before seeing this thread, but “flame” didn’t make it into the list.
