There are a lot of traders here at BGG and thousands upon thousands of trades have been entered in the database. This cool site also lets you review all your personal trades. Upon reviewing my list, I still pleased with most the deals I've made. But there are a few trades that I am shaking my head, wishing I could have back.

Any one else have any trades they regret?

1. Board Game: Witch's Brew [Average Rating:7.06 Overall Rank:454]

The one I regret most. This game wasn't even on my trade list. But I was trying to get the OOP Santa Fe Rails and offered Canal Mania (which at the time was hard to find). The other trader wanted to include additional games to make the shipping costs worth it. We settled on Witch's Brew for Cold War:Cia vs KGB and Fantasy Business, two games that are still unplayed. At the time, I figured I could just reacquire Witch's Brew but I never got around to it and now it's too late.

This was actually a mistake. I was trying to get Snorta on the cheap and saw it in a math trade. I uploaded a few thrift games, but somehow the box was checked for Amazonas. Oops. What made it worse was a few weeks later I saw Snorta at Toys R Us on sale for $10, less than what it cost me to ship Amazonas. Double dagnabbit! On the bright side, Snorta is my five year olds favorite game and it's seen more play than Amazonas ever did and more play than most games in my collection.

3. Board Game: Power Grid [Average Rating:7.99 Overall Rank:11]

There was a time in my life I started collecting LEGOS. I posted on a forum that I'd trade board games for LEGOs. What was I thinking? I traded Power Grid and Attika for a bunch of LEGOs. Some decent sets, but nothing in boxes. Now I have LEGOs coming out of my ears and just wish I had these two games back. Of course, I also have board games coming out of my ears and LEGOs still sell pretty well on ebay, even loose pieces.

This really wasn't a horrible trade... Louis XIV was a game that just looked way too dry. So I traded it for Wildlife. The only problem was the trader didn't tell me his version was in German. He started with some paste ups but didn't do a great job. I might still try to get this played at some point, but it's highly unlikely.

5. Board Game: Goa [Average Rating:7.70 Overall Rank:53]

Definitely one of the worse trades I've made. Back before it was OOP, I threw this gem up in a math trade. What I ended up getting in return was Dream Factory. Now it wasn't THAT bad...this was back when Dream Factory was called Traumfabrik and that was the only version available. It was in German and so it sat unplayed. I don't even remember what happened to it...I think I sold it on ebay. All I know is that I have the game now and it's called Hollywood Blockbuster and it remains unplayed. An alleged reprint of Goa takes the sting out of this a little.

Didn't know this one had value. I had the original square-corner printing, and ended up trading it for a copy of Verräter and Meuterer!. I got two games I wanted in trade for one I didn't, but there was a lot of missed value there for me.
