Happy New Year: 1 million players!

A few days ago, we went over 1 million accounts created on Board Game Arena. ONE MILLION! Needless to say that when we launched this website 8 years ago, we never imagined to reach such a number...

Thank you everyone for making BGA such a big success!

This year, we published 27 new games, including very popular ones like Russian Railroads, Bubblee Pop, The Builders, Carcassonne expansions or Roll for the Galaxy. This is quite a lot, and we couldn't have done it without the support of the developers from the community who helped us to create some of these wonderful game adaptations: thanks to all of them!

During the same period, we introduced this year a lot of improvements on the website itself, including the community-based translated news, the "hotseat" mode, the revamped audio/video chat, the 3D mode. We worked a lot on BGA Studio, our portal dedicated to developers, to make it faster, easier to use and more efficient to bring new games on BGA. We also put a lot of effort on the "Simple mode" of the game lobby, which we'd like to use at the default for beginners.

As you can imagine, all of this required a lot of work: we have been able to handle it thanks to the great help of the community and because now the 2 admins have left their outside job and are working fulltime on Board Game Arena. We'd like to address a particular thank you to all Premium members: without your financial support, we wouldn't be able to spend enough time to run BGA.

Speaking about Premium, we just made it possible to subscribe to a membership in US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Pound and Yen. So those of you playing from USA, Canada, GB and Japan should now be able to subscribe directly in their own currency instead of Euro :)

We wish you an happy new year 2018 full of fun & games!

And what a marvelous improvement this hotseat mode is, considering that it was no trouble playing together until you added it as a new premium feature. :-P (Maybe that's why "hotseat" mode is written with quotation marks, but 3D mode isn't?)

... but happy 1 million players, it's great this site exists.
