Is anyone familiar with/is it possible to extract information from the BGG database. I think that it is and I would like to collect certain information on games into a spreadsheet. Perhaps they sell the ability to do it? I haven't had a chance to thoroughly investigate it yet and thought I'd start here.

But I don't want to learn stuff... Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, though my lack of coding knowledge may be a hindrance.

I'm looking for specific information, and it's actually right out in the open. But it looks like someone would need know PEARL to gather the data. Pick any game and about a 1/2 of the way down the page is a section called "Versions". I would like: a) game name b) publisher c) year published d) size/dimensions (e) maybe weight). Most of this is even in the first section. So it's not a root canal.
