The first four items below are intended to foster discussion. In addition, please add an item to represent your gaming life for the week of October 23-29, 2011. Please list any games played along with any other information that you deem is appropriate, from game descriptions to thoughts on the games to new acquisitions.
Recently I decided to embark on my first venture into the world of BGG trades. It does not seem to be going well, with my having sent some games to another member & their subsequent ignoring of my geekmails for about a week now. I was disheartened since it was a name I recognized from a few forums I read regularly; but I guess I've learned my lesson to be more careful when conducting these things.
The reason I decided to engage in trades here on BGG was really about three things:
1) Spending less on new games by being efficient with gaming resources which are going unused.
2) Acquiring games in a new way that is more fun than merely buying boxes of games from boards&bits.
3) Broadening my collection to things that for whatever reason I would not normally buy for myself, but am willing to trade for.
As such, I think the topics this week will be a matter of trust, frugality, experience, and broadening horizons.
