I absolutely love tabletop games. It brings people together to do something physical. It gets your mind thinking and keeps your mental state high. I also love data. Numbers are the language of the universe. I love collecting data and I love tabletop games so I decided why don't I create a way to track my tabletop gameplay??
Sounds pretty nerdy, I know. If you're not into tracking how many games you play in a month or how many times you win at games or who you play with or how many new games you've played, then the Game Database might not be for you. If you like all the stuff I just mentioned and also like learning about new games and what games are popular than you might love the Game Database.
The main function of the Game Database (DB) is to track gameplay. I have been tracking every tabletop game I've played since 2017. Game DB tracks whom you play with, what game you played together, when you played it, what everyone's scores were, who won, and who was playing that game for the first time.
Once you've tracked at least a few games, Game DB will give you an idea of how many times you've played games in a given month. It will also track how many wins and losses you have. I've tried to create a system that gamifies tabletop games. You get awards based on how many times you've played and many others.
One really good feature I love from Game DB is that it shows me games that I might like in the future based on the games I've played in the past. Every time you check the recommended games, it changes and gives you more suggestions based on what other people have played and what you have played.
Of course, since this is sort of like a social media platform you can connect with friends, chat with them and even enter tournaments together. The tournament mode keeps physical interaction on the front of everyone's mind and gives people a reason to get together with their friends.
I'm the only person developing this platform, so it has been in beta mode since 2017, but in order to continue to improve it, I need feedback from users and any bugs you might find. This platform is super useful to remember who got what scores and to keep track of everything in your life dealing with tabletop games.
