Board Game Analytics
Scientific game analytics with massive game play data

We are interested in computing statistics on game components, discovering dominant strategies and testing game balances

Unlike ordinary game reviews based mostly on author's personal experiences after a few play tests, our analysis is objective and based on massive game plays (100,000+) over our online platform.

Balancing game components and strategies is a difficult task, and we hope our analysis can provide feedback to game designers for future rules ammendment or expansions.
