I understand better - A semi-related question, can you use bgg API ? If yes it will make your life easier but I think they restrict it for database competitors.

I know sites like https://geekgroup.app/ do use it. This can make your life easier.
Yeah, I've seen that there are some APIs out there (board game atlas is another one, and they got some flak for copying from bgg), but I don't think that's a great idea as this would be a direct competitor for BGG. (and you'd have to be very careful with what info you would potentially pull).

But it would make my life easier, for sure.. :p

Would Clubs be a better option?

Example here: https://forums.warframe.com/clubs/

It essentially provides people with their own sub-community outside of the normal node structure so normal load times are not impacted.
