Rate Limits and Good Citizenship

The API allows for up to 60 requests per minute per client_id. Exceeding this amount will result in an HTTP 429 Too Many Requests status code.

We encourage you to cache the data retrieved by our API or store it locally. All data is updated only every 24 hours so additional requests will not result in new data. Keep in mind that

  • Newer games update with the most recent information once a day.
  • Older games with infrequent activity are updated much less often.

If your application requires a higher rate limit to function you can contact us directly with your request at contact@boardgameatlas.com.
