Tellico's BGG import just isn't setup to read that (yet). I'll take a look
at expanding it to allow for private data to get imported.

The default is usually to ignore data which doesn't correspond to any of
the default fields, but maybe an option to create new fields or map them to
custom fields somehow would work.
