A little trick when looking for something on Mobygames...
If you append these to a Game Browser URL, you can add one extra filter where normally it would not be applicable. (eg, you can search for games associated with two genres) :)

There are more than these, but not all of them HAVE associated games.

Thank you very much! :OK: I'm addicted to that database :drool:
I've proposed several fixed on MobyGames forums and bombarded their staff with PMs, I don't care about the latest trends in GUI, but more search options are a must for data mining.

Thanks to your tip I've managed to do a following trick:

if one of the options mentioned above is on this list (unfortunately not all are) you can mix even two options, like this!

Example: a wonderful listing for wargamers
