After discovering the BGG trading system, I've had a great deal of success in trading with BGGers; This list shows what I've had and what I traded it for. I think I've managed to trade up for the most part.

(P.S.: This is also my first Geeklist, so be gentle )

A game whose premise I enjoyed far more than actual gameplay. While it was fun to imagine all the things we were doing and name specific cities, states and countries we were threatening, the sheen wore off quickly and there were always better games to play. Plus, another guy in the group also owns this, so if we ever wanted to dust it off again, we could.

This was actually a tough trade, as not very many people have this on their want list - In fact, only one person in the US wanted it. Luckily, they were willing to trade it for . . .

Dungeon Twister 2. Another game I had become fascinated with, this time for its mechanics, DT2 was on my radar to augment my current DT and DT 3-4 player expansion. In addition, it was a game I was interested in that I could trade Mwahahaha! for, so I jumped on it. If it didn't work out, there were more folks interested in getting DT2 than Mwahahaha!, so I figured this was a trade up.

An impulse buy after watching the BGWS episode about flicking games, this one fell very flat the first time our group played it. We're just not that into "experience" games, and this one devolved into a boring flickfest. However, it was highly sought after in Want Lists, so I had my pick of games to choose from. I chose . . .

Metropolys. I had become fascinated with this game thanks again to Board Games With Scott (I sense a trend here). Turns out it's fantastic filler, and has been played several times in the few weeks we've had it. Definite win for our group here.

I thought this would be a grand slam for my group. Cooperative, yet with that competitive element that everybody loves. That is, until what turned out to be our final play. One guy in the group decided that , since he had no chance of winning (as he had a rough idea of VPs for the table), he would NOT defend the castle and allow it to fall, thus ensuring that nobody won. It kind of deflated me on the idea of the game, and everybody else as well. Another group could give this game the love it deserved, I was sure, so Unto my Trade List it went. Soon an offer was accepted for . . .

Drakon, a game I had been thinking about for some time. So far, we've played it once, and the reception was lukewarm. I'd like to give it another chance, but I'm not sure it will help. Oh well, perhaps it will end up on the Trade List in the future as well. I call this a break even.

I thought this would be a big hit, but again, "experience" games just seem to fizzle out with my group. Space Alert was no exception. The game was chaotic, I had fun trying to figure the puzzle out, but nobody else seemed to. We played through a few of the tutorials, got destroyed every time, and we haven't played it again since. Sad but determined to find an appreciative home for it, Onto the Trade List it went, when an offer was accepted for . . .

Macao, another BGWS inspiration. The rosette mechanic and gambling aspects really sounded intriguing, and when it finally arrived, I was not disappointed. Yes, the theme is tacked on, but wow, the brain burn is delightful and the mechanics are novel enough (at least for our group) that it really appeals.

I should add, as an endorsement of trading here on BGG, that the individual with whom I traded on this transaction (Octavian) was nice enough to make this trade despite the fact that he is moving soon. In fact, he sent out my game to me, and actually asked that I wait until Late August to send him his game. That kind of good-faith trading has made me a lifetime BGG trader.

What's this? A trade offer, out of the blue? Sadly, DT2 never hit the table in the short time I owned it. Having traded away Mwahahaha! for it, it really was a wash, and an effort to increase the value of what I could trade away. I was shocked at the offer when I saw that the trader was offering me . . .

Prophecy, I had put it on my want list after reading about it in a few geeklists since I needed an Adventure game in my collection (besides my complete copy of 2nd-ed Talisman, which hasn't seen light in over 6 years). In addition, this trading saint had offered me the Dragon Realm expansion as well. After only a moment's hesitation, I accepted the trade.

In effect, I had traded Mwahahaha! for Prophecy and an expansion. A fantastic exchange if I do say so myself.
