It would be cool if we could return board game information when a specific title is searched (e.g.: Twilight Struggle -- http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1...).

boardgamegeek.com clearly has a very big dataset of this information including pricing, user ratings, reviews, descriptions, etc... We would probably need to work with them to either get a dump or API access (if it exists).
