I built a database and table for board games that we play (there's almost 100 games on it!).
After adding plenty of data, I realized that Board Game Geek (BGG) has an XML API to allow us to grab data for our tables: https://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/BGG_XML_API2
Here's the table I built now, populated with quite a bit of data: https://www.seanarenas.com/games
It looks like I'll hit them with a URL something like:
That returns a lot of cool information like:
<name primary="true" sortindex="1">Bob Ross: Art of Chill Game</name>
How do I make use of this information in:
a) Tables on my /games page above, and;
b) On a single page showing info about the game?
For a) the goal is to list the games that a particular player owns, so the group of players can look at them together and decide which ones to play based on complexity, duration, # of players, etc.
