The new "Guess the Board Game" challenge is up for this week!
How well do you know board games? Take part in this weekly challenge to identify a board game from a single image. Check in each Monday for a new challenge, and follow-up Friday to find the identity of games you couldn't name.

Thanks! We got a nice camera for baby photographing, so I've been taking advantage of that. No light box, but I rigged up something with a few lights and it seems to work alright.

I've been working on a board game recommendation site for the past few weeks, and I'm finally launching it.  Its goal is to make finding new board games quick and easy, so you can spend less time researching games and more time playing them.

If you're interested in checking it out, or just want to do it as a favor to me, you can find it at www.boardgamesfor.me.

Also, if you like it, you could share a game from the site or go to http://www.boardgamelinks.com/links/details/2039 and click the little heart icon on the right side.
Take the hassle out of finding board games that you will love. Easily filter through piles of games and find options that fit exactly what you are looking for. Spend less time finding board games and more time playing them!

I really like the "corruption" expansion for Lords of Waterdeep.  It's making a strong case for overtaking Eclipse as my favorite board game.  Side note, I finally got to try Tzolk'in and it's a great time.  I love the gears mechanic on the board.

It's a good time to be a board game fan!

Sales Call Manager just got another update.  With a visual redesign and some new features, people seem to be liking it so far.  If you're involved in sales at all and have an Android device, check out the trial version and let me know what you think.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lyote.coldcall&hl=en

An Eclipse bug made it take much longer than it should have, but I finally have the Android support action bar working in my app project.

+Adam Jones You're right, but you're supposed to guess on the site!  New games are going to be posted on Mondays and you have until Friday to answer them.  Once Friday is over, the answers will be made available and a new game will go up Monday.

+Phil Hatfield Thanks Phil, I agree with all of your feedback.  The filters use the game's player range, so even if a game isn't good with 3 players it will show up if you can technically play with that many.  I have a few ideas for improving this, but it will require some more work on my search algorithms.

I agree that more information per game would be useful.  I will likely add a link to BGG or try to include more information.

A big goal for this is to help people that aren't overly familiar with board games find something they may like.  Because of that, I'm trying to keep it easy to use and not overload/intimidate people that are new to the hobby.  I'll take a hard look at things and see where I can add more detailed information while keeping things simple.

Thanks for the feedback and for taking the time to check it out!

This is probably my favorite board game that is not currently in my collection.  Curse you +Pepper Miller for buying it before I could!

I would also set aside a little extra time than the rulebook says per player, to make sure you can finish the game.

I just discovered +Kenneth Lewelling's Android app DevAppsDirect.  It's a must have if you're an Android developer.  I've already discovered multiple updates I want to add to my current app.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.inappsquared.devappsdirect
Android developers have used DevAppsDirect to run over 315,000 library demo...
