I need to play more games
Looks like games_played field was removed from API
We need to thank those players who play thousands of correspondence games. Hooray!!!
I’m sure it’s in the forums somewhere, but how many are active users? Is 800k unique users since OGS start date?
Not to say it’s not impressive, it is
I have played nearly 8,000 live games, and only 625 correspondence games (which is a power of 5). I feel left out
Hahaha. My bad. We should thank those players who have played thousands of blitz, live and correspondence games.
I’m looking through my friends list and others to see who has played the most games, and how much credit they should be given.
This post is a wiki, so you can add people.

Seems like I’m not the only mathematically challenged person around!
I often tell the anecdote of how I was on stage in front of hundreds of people, and I thought 9 x 10 = 92. In my defense, I did have a fever of 40 degrees Celsius, so math was not my top priority, but still, a 6th grader should know better.
Oh my Go. This guy deserves a prize or a medal.
I added a bunch more people to the wiki.
Here are some statistics:
1 in every…
38 games is played by GnuGo
313 games is played by stinkygobasket
2700 games is played by me
1500 games is played by a mod
6 games is played by a bot
25,000,000 games is played by a player who played one game
(this post is also wiki)
Back when we had games_played field I made a list:
I tried to fetch this one by one, but it’s just too slow. Leaving my query running for an entire day only get around 50k users T_T
And then I noticed that
is_bot might not be correct as well, because I cam across old_gnubot something that’s not marked as a bot but have questionable(?) name. So I dropped short the query.
Iirc games_played wasn’t fair as well, since it count annulled games too.
When the long correspondence tournament starts (in about 18 hours), it will most likely create over ten thousand new games.
You wrote the 25000000 is broken. What could be amount of broken/empty… Games in these 25 millions?
Besides this, it’s an Impressive amount, Bravo ogs!
Just speculation, but I would guess that a game number is assigned whenever a new challenge is opened, however not all challenges become games, since they might be left unaccepted and eventually closed.
I do not think this is correct. Once, I saw a correspondence open challenge from 2019, and someone finally accepted it in May 2020, it had a 245xxxxx number.
I realise this is way less satisfying than having an actual concrete answer, but I’m just stating a few things I’ve experienced.
Edit: oh yeah, forgot to mention it was a 25k creating a challenge restricted to 7d+, which is why it was unaccepted for so long
… What to say?.. Search teaching game, only slow time setting and high Dan accepted…
80000 games, quick calculation if you give 20mn/game it’s a bit more as 3 years no stop no sleep no eat.
I had a look at some of those games, they are all 9x9, and apparently <2-3mins each.
80,000 is still a ridiculously large and hard to believe number though…
… in fact, since that person has been on site for ~6 years, it is approaching 40 games per day, every day for that whole time.
I suppose that’s not impossible …
Huh, apparently I passed my 2000th game without noticing, in mid-October.
Unfortunately, it was a low-quality game – I was a bit drunk and misread a corner, which died in the opening.
