Add a field
- Could we add a field to the UGX database for BGG link. There are some
games in that database that I don't know and it would be neat to have
a BGG link to information about it handy.

First, I don't think anyone is going to take the time to determine the
specific BGG link for a particular game and enter it into the
database. It's too much work. There aren't many people entering games
as it is, and I feel most will balk at entering this data.
Second, and perhaps more importantly, such entries don't work as real
links. I experimented with the UG9 Games List, adding the BGG column
and placing an entry for Acquire. Yahoo displays the information, but
doesn't present it as a hyperlink. I don't know why Yahoo is being
restrictive, but I'm not gonna fight it.
So I think you're better off opening BGG in another window and manually
navigating to the games you desire.
