Why is there no “all genres / themes / mechanisms” selection field?

By adding such a vague field, the system would only find matches between people who also selected “all genres / themes / mechanisms”, so you would miss a very large number of matches with people who are more selective.

Therefore, by selecting various specific options, you better your odds at finding matches.

Why is my game not listed?

We try to add as many popular games as possible to our database. It is however impossible to list all the available games on the market; not only would it make the lists quite tedious to read through but it would also reduce your chances to find an appropriate match.

We will nevertheless add a game to our lists if there is sufficient demand for it. In the meantime, you can add the games that we don’t have to the “Wishlist” section in your profile under “About me”.
