The site provides an extensive database of board games as well as an active community of users who discuss, argue, buy, sell, trade and play board games. The database contains over 81,000 board games (as of January 25, 2016) and each game has its own Game entry which gives information about a game, user ratings, forums for discussion and a great deal more.

Text Editors at BGG

BGG has two basic text editors. You can recognize them from sight using the red boxed regions in the images below for reference.

Forum Editor - Used for editing posts and other parts of the system. The Forum Editor provides support for creating markup in the editor which is then rendered in the actual post.

Wiki Editor - Used to editing wiki pages and other places. For example the game Description and More Information sections are actually wiki pages.

The markup formats for the Forum Editor and the Wiki Editor are similar, but different.
