Default 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.
Only one each of e, f, or x can be used at a time.

Thumbs up

Thank you very much! I'm addicted to that database
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
