Hello all,

I'm trying to search the Trade forum, but I'm running into problems. For example, I'll click 'Search' and type, for example, "Flash Point" in the 'Keywords Search' dialog box. I will then highlight 'Trades' in the 'Search Forum' box and click 'Submit'.

I will then get Flash Point messages from all different forums instead of just messages with Flash Point in Trades only? Hope this makes sense.

Also, can I ask about trades in the specific game forum instead of through the Trades forum?

Thanks,
Elliott

I think what you want is

http://boardgamegeek.com/trade

Make sure you enter some items as "for trade" in your collection, and then you can search for matches.

I find the easiest way to look for trades is using this tool
Bazaar > Trades > Custom Search

or just click on this link http://boardgamegeek.com/trade/custom

To make it work, you have to maintain in your collection the the items you have up For Trade and the items you want in trade. (maintained under My Geek)

Its still requires some work to find a trade partner who sees the trade as a Win-Win, but I've had a good deal of luck with trading. It's given me the opportunity to cycle my collection and get more NEW (to me) games than I otherwise would be able to afford (or have room for).

Best of Luck!
