I have a game I want to trade that's big & bulky, so I don't really want to ship it. I can use the "custom search" trade options to find matches in my state for people with games I've got on /my/ trade wants list. That's cool.

I can go to the game's page & get a list of /all/ users with it flagged as a want, sorted by their ranking of the game. That's cool-ish.

Is there a way to find users wanting this game but limited by state?

Is there a way to see all games offered in trade by users wanting this game?

Yes, I'm fishing for trades.

Go into Trades and select Custom Search.

Select the game you want to trade and then the state in the third column.

That just shows you trades that match items in your existing "Trade wants" list, I thought?

I want to see all possible people wanting a game in a state, not just the ones with a direct 1:1 match with one of my wants.

Ahh, cool. I was more wondering if you were going crazy and, err, getting rid of War of the Ring. Which I would probably would have had to call the looney bin for a 72 hour evaluation.

Lordy, no. I may be mildly crazy, but I'm not insane. Due a play of it sometime...

Anyway, no way to find the pool of users wanting a particular game within a state?

Step 1) mark every game in the database as wanted in trade
Step 2) make sure you have marked your games as for trade
Step 3) follow havox's instructions

I suppose you would miss anybody who has nothing marked for trade, but other than that, nothing can go wrong here.

You could always sell the games and pass the shipping cost on to the buyer.
