The game market is an increasingly large industry. The board-game market, which is the most traditional in the game market, continues to show a steady growth. It is very important for both publishers and players to predict the propensity of users in this huge market and to recommend new games. Despite its importance, no study has been performed on board-game recommendation systems. In this study, we propose a method to build a deep-learning-based recommendation system using large-scale user data of an online community related to board games. Our study showed that new games can be effectively recommended for board-game users based on user big data accumulated for a long time. This is the first study to propose a personalized recommendation system for users in the board-game market and to introduce a provision of new large datasets for board-game users. The proposed dataset shares symmetric characteristics with other datasets and has shown its ability to be applied to various recommendation systems through experiments. Therefore, the dataset and recommendation system proposed in this study are expected to be applied for various studies in the field.
