Ive always logged my board game plays on Board Game Geek, but I dont get on my computer at home very often and the BGG website isnt very accommodating to my mobile device.
I wanted an app to record my plays from my phone. What I got was so, so much more.
Not only can this app sync my new plays to BGG, but I also put all of my old plays on here easily, too. Now I can see all my plays for the month or the year or even my all time plays.
Best of all, though, is the way the app creates easy to use graphs for so many stats. For example, pie charts for locations Ive played, days of the week, and the people Ive played with. There are bar graphs for total plays for the last few days or the last few weeks as well as line graphs for plays of each individual game.
The app will track the personal high scores for each player for each game and give win/loss records, too. Does your buddy seem to have a selective memory when it comes to how he did the last time you played your favorite game? Just look it up with a few taps on your phone.
Ive had this app for over a year. In that time it has had a few small glitches. For example, a new friend of mine was listed as having won a bunch of games against me even a couple years before we even met.
However, the app is very well supported and any little problem has been quickly addressed. Additionally, the app is much better and has more features now than when I first installed it. It just keeps getting better and better.
One last thing, and maybe this is just a weird thing about me than about the app, but sometimes in looking over my personal stats, Ive been motivated to set a new record for number of plays for a particular game. For example, adding another game to my "5 and dimes" list (games youve played at least 5 or 10 times), or trying to increase my H-index (for example, right now my H-index for the year so far is 4, meaning Ive played four different games at least four times.)
If you like knowing what youve played and with whom and how well you did, I cant recommend this app enough. Its quick and easy to use, updates your info to BGG, and lets you instantly see all your stats with the touch of a finger. Its so completely worth the few dollars Ive spent on it.
