We're going to buy a lucky user a game off of their wishlist before this coming holiday season! Before we get into the rules for it I wanted to share a bit about everything that's changed recently on our board game search platform.

Board Game Search

In the last 7 weeks, we've built and released a new board game search platform. It features a growing number of amazing features that make it the world's most powerful way to search for boardgames. Here's some of the sweet features that the web app includes.

  • Optimization for both mobile & desktop
  • Price Alerts
  • Price based searching (Example)
  • Discount % based searching (Example)
  • Embed code for each game for content creators. (Example of it in use)
  • Game Lists (Example)
  • Rules Q&A section
  • Official website and rules links (no account required to access)
  • Wiki style database (info changes are shown immediately and old versions are stored)
  • Prices from Amazon, Cool Stuff Inc, Miniature Market, Game Nerdz, Card Haus, and a growing international store section
  • Commercial & Non-commercial available API
  • Links to reddit conversations
  • Game data (of course)

That's enough about features. If you want to check out the search web app, you can see it at https://www.5colorcombo.com/search.
