BGG's database currently doesn't have any "notability" requirements. The admins are very open to new games being added, so long as they are complete. Obviously just adding some half-baked idea that has never been played or refined shouldn't be added. These icehouse games are more useful in the database, imo, because at least it will be easy for someone to play them. The rules are online, the pieces to play them are either already in your collection or ease to make or acquire. Getting them in the database and then tagged, rated, perhaps even writing a review or preview and added to the appropriate geeklists* is a great way to promote the game and find people who are interested in trying them.

I'm adding them to this one as I find them: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/10836 Up to 70 items on the list now, and I've only made it to the "E"s. I'll do more tonight. I'm sure there must be more than 100 icehouse games already on the geek, just hiding in the 30,000 entries in there. -Jason On Feb 19, 2008 2:02 PM, Doug Orleans <dougorleans@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I guess I'm used to the Wikipedia community, which has minimum > "notability" standards that should be met before something can be > added to the database.
