Many people bought cheap copies of Vegas Showdown at Toys R Us, Tanga, or somewhere else. Many copies have been traded during the past year. What did you get for your copy of Vegas Showdown?

This is the game. $10, $5, however much you paid, someone probably paid less. I bought at least two copies at $10, and more at $5 or less.

Right after Vegas Showdown went on deep clearance, math trades would have 15+ copies of the game listed at a time. In order to trade one, I figured I would have to pair it with another game.

I paired Vegas Showdown with RoboRally and got 300 geek gold. This was back when geek gold was about 6.5gg = $1. Over the next few months, that 300gg turned into $13 (via gg auctions), Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases (also a gg auction), and a Star Wars Miniatures starter set with 30 additional miniatures. RoboRally was the bigger item in the trade for the geek gold, so it's hard to say how much of it was due to Vegas Showdown.

I haven't played many solitaire games, but Sherlock Holmes was one of the better ones. Star Wars Miniatures was so good it makes me want my past back. It's so much better than the hours I spent on Star Wars Roleplaying in college. On the other hand, I would never pay the retail price for a collectible game like that. I got a few through second-hand trades and that's plenty.

In one of my worst math trade results, I traded away Vegas Showdown, Pizza Box Football, Tangoes, and Triple Traveler for Universalis (Revised Edition). I'm happy to have Universalis, but I did not realize that it is just a book - and a small paperback book at that. Tangoes and Triple Traveler had no value to me, and Pizza Box Football was virtually untradeable at the time (it was soon after JC Penny had them on clearance for $4 or something like that), so I basically see this as Vegas Showdown for Universalis. I guess I can't complain too much because I got something I wanted for something I didn't want.

Now if I could only get to play Universalis.

In one of my best trades, I traded away a game bundle of

Vegas Showdown,
Tichu,
Slide 5/Cheater,
Liar's Dice (Perudo tin), and
Ideology: The War of Ideas

for
Attika,
Sun Tzu, and
Mykerinos.

Game bundles are sometimes tricky because you might not want all of the games that are packaged together, but I got two games I really wanted and a third game in high demand that was easy to trade away later (Mykerinos).

Attika and Dynasties have both become regulars in the game rotation with my wife. I am especially fond of Dynasties and am rather surprised at its relative lack of popularity.

Vegas Showdown was one of the two 'big' games in my bundle, so you could say I traded it for either Attika or Dynasties (not both).

There are cheap copies of Time Agent on ebay, but I decided I'd rather trade for it. I put up an Ultimate Trade hoping to build a bridge from Vegas Showdown to Time Agent, but I got no offers. In the next math trade, though, I got exactly what I wanted. Time Agent hasn't hit the table yet, but it should sometime in the next 6 months.

Two additional copies went to friends who missed the sale (for the price I had paid). I'm left with one copy to keep and one more left to trade. That's eight copies total, if anyone's keeping track.

What about you? What did you get for Vegas Showdown?

I math traded my Vegas Showdown for a bulk lot of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle cards-a flat rate box packed w/ goodies (rares, vamps, and loads of useful commons/uncommons) from Jyhad, Dark Sovereigns, Ancient Hearts, about 75% of each set. This has been the backbone of some very playable decks that I've been enjoying ever since w/ a local group.

I missed out on the sale, so I traded away my unplayed copy of Carc: H&G for one.

A classic example of being able to trade down because I got such a good price on Vegas Showdown, I have been extremely pleased with this trade. A buddy of mine & I have played this game a number of times, and although I kept a copy of Vegas Showdown ( a good game ) I have more plays on Dungeon Twister.
