You have a question that others frequently ask?


You cannot see your new game in your collection?

Gameshelf caches game collections to not strain BoardGameGeek's server too much. Try downloading your collections again by clicking the refresh button in the setting menu. The settings menu can be found in the left side of the page header when you are viewing a shelf.

You own a game with an expansion that add additional players to the base game, but this is not shown in Gameshelf?

This used to be a problem, but now it should work! If it does not, please tell us.
