Okay, so I'm looking to thin the herd a little. The Unity Games Math Trade is coming up, and I'm thinking I have a lot of things that can go away. I want suggestions.

HERE IS MY GAMES OWNED LIST:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewcollection.php3?username=Le...

I want YOU to suggest things I don't need. Please don't do "YOU SHOULD GET RID OF MUNCHKIN CATAN BECAUSE THAT GAME IS SUCKS AND AMERITRASH" or whatever. I'm looking for reasoned suggestions. I may not take them, but I'm looking for them.

Your help in this matter is appreciated.

And here's what I'm talking about with the Russian Sledge:

You should put this up.

You rate it a 4, yet there are plenty of people that enjoy this game.

I'm think there are a few that still don't own it.

You've only played it once, so it should still be in good condition.

You dislike this game, well most people seem to dislike this game.

But, it is now OOP and I'm sure there are a few people looking for it.

BTW, I have seen Monsters taken out by the military.

I don't know if a lot of people WANT it, but it's Martin Wallace, and doesn't often show up on Math Trades. Your comments seem to damn the game with faint praise, as it is.

You've made some comments that indicate, while you like the game, you aren't sure you want to play it much.

Toss it in there, get rid of it while you can still have fond memories.

It doesn't seem like you are going to play it much.

(I loved this game when I first played it, but it seriously didn't have a lot of replay value in my group)

Magdar is great game. Need to get Magdar to more gamers so Magdar does not destroy gaming industry. Magdar could get Trogdor to burn your roof if you not trade and not buy another.

Stephenson's Rocket.

Looks like you don't get to play it and rate it only 'middling'.

Why this game?

Well first off you have a copy and I don't. You should give it to me.

Also, I figured this would be an interesting experiment, yet it's dropping off the front page to quickly. So, someone needs to post another game.

[Kinda cheating since you have these cards listed for trade . . . ] However, I would think that since this game is fairly well regarded by many, but only so-so by you, it's a good target.

Plus, at some point since they are not making any more of these (as far as I know), the longer they are out-of-print you'll begin to reduce your target traders from the "players and collectors" to just the "collectors". [My thinking here is that the game becomes very challenging for new players to start and existing players will likely begin to hoard their reserves - i.e., become collectors.] Thus, I would put these up while your likely still to get as many interested trading partners as possible.

One other note: No Netrunner cards listed in the BGG marketplace currently, and the only eBay links on the site are for individual Netrunner cards, none for a collection of cards.

Not one of your favorite games, but a decent number of BGG'ers list it as "wanted" (approximately as many as those who list it "for trade"). Again, something that would likely draw some interest.

[Again, cheating a bit since you have already indicated an interest in trading this . . . ] However, the number of user "wanting" this outnumbers those trying to trade it by ~ 3:1 (24 to 7). Granted those aren't huge absolute numbers, but you would likely draw some interest from the Colovini fans (of which I am one).

This one is probably going to go away to a friend of mine who enjoys it a lot more than I do.

I really liked this one at first, but I think I'm kind of cooling on it. The last couple of times I played it, it seemed like nothing really mattered except the last couple of turns. So it might go.
