Clearing the Shelves - Many to One Trade List
This list has been closed down in favor of a new version:
Clearing the Shelves - Many to One Trade List, 2nd Edition
Please visit us there!
Do you have too many unplayed games sitting on your shelves? Are you trying to wring every last dollar of value out of them in a trade, or would you rather send a few of them off to better homes in exchange for just ONE game you really want? If you fall in the second camp, this list may be for you.
The idea here is that one person offers a selection of games from which another person can choose several, and in exchange, they agree to ship just one game.
[For the sake of clarity, I'm going to call the person offering a list of games the Seller, and the person shipping just one game, the Buyer]
The Seller does five things in their posting:
Include a list of up to TEN games that you are offering. Use the title of your most attention-grabbing game for the Geeklist item. Indicate conditions, versions, etc for each game.
Indicate how many the Buyer can select (choose 3, choose 4, choose any number, up to ALL)
Post a list of up to FIVE games you want in return, with the understanding that you are only getting one. It is assumed you will accept used games in excellent condition.
Indicate your zip code so shipping costs can be calculated
Indicate your shipping policy. Some Sellers may generously offer to pay the full amount to ship their stack of games. I recommend both parties estimate shipping and then split it. The Buyer can include cash or check in the package, or electronic payment can be arranged. (Example: if Seller pays $20 to ship, and Buyer pays $8, the total is $28 or $14 each. The buyer would include $6 in the box when shipping.)
The Seller should be willing to ship any games on their list, provided it falls within their guidelines for how many can be chosen in exchange any single game on their wishlist. As the Seller, you are not allowed to reject a legal offer. If you offer "pick 3 of these 10 and send me 1 of these 5", then you must honor that agreement as long as the Buyer selected 3 and offered 1 from your lists.
Remember to subscribe to your listing so you will see questions and offers.
As a prospective Buyer, make a claim by posting a comment to the Geeklist item indicating which games you've chosen and which you are sending. Include the condition of the game you are offering. If the condition is less than Excellent, Seller has the right to refuse. From there, the two parties should initiate a normal trade on BGG. If the claim is invalid, the Moderator reserves the right to delete it. First legal offer takes it.
Following the completion of the trade, the Seller will overstrike (cross out) the games that are no longer available. After some period of time has passed, if there's no activity, the Moderator will delete or archive these entries to keep the list clean. Once the Seller has shipped their games, they may post another entry which includes the games not chosen, or keep the current listing with the unavailable games removed. (Sellers may post as many Geeklist Items as they want, provided the 10 games listed are unique. Example: if you have 50 games to offer, you may post 5 lists of 10 games.)
An idea for Sellers: you may bundle games together as one "offer item". So you could make the following offer:
Choose 3 of the following:
2. (Viticulture Moors Expansion & 50 Metal Coins)
5. (La Granja No Siesta & Scythe Promo Pack #4)
Items 2 and 5 each count as one item.
An idea for Buyers: you don't need to own a game that the Seller wants. You can buy it from an online retailer or BGG Store and ship to that person.
Sellers - the best way to approach this list is with a sense of generosity. You may only come out marginally ahead financially, but the purpose is to clear your shelves and give these games some love. Send them somewhere that they will be played. Personally, if I can unload 3 or 4 games I don't play and get a $50 game I really wanted for only $20, then I'm a happy man.
You can choose any 4 of the following:
1. Candamir: The First Settlers: Excellent condition, played a handful of times
2. Foragers: KS edition, played once
3. Nautilus Industries: KS Deluxe edition, includes metal coins, played once
4. (Tasnia, Equinox, Village in a Box + Village in a Box: Water & People in a Box) All from KS and in excellent conditions.
5. Shear Panic: Excellent condition, played once
6. The Hunger Games: District 12 Strategy Game: Excellent condition, played once
7. The Hobbit: The Defeat of Smaug: Opened, never played
8. Pictureka Kubes: New/Sealed
9. Animal Upon Animal: played once
10. DragonFlame: played a couple of times
My wishlist includes:
1. Great Western Trail
2. Fields of Arle
3. The Colonists
4. A Feast for Odin
5. Russian Railroads: German Railroads
My zipcode is 60440 and I'm willing the split the shipping costs.
Edit 5/1: added DragonFlame, removed already traded games, upped number of outgoing games to FOUR

March of the Ants
Mansions of Madness: Second Edition
