being new to this world and trading a thought came to me.

Why do you all trade your games?

Do you do it for profit or
for updating your collection or
swap games you don't like for games you might like?


What do you look in the game you want to trade a game for another

the main reason i ask is what should i do with my games to entice people to trade with me.

Why do people trade & other musings on trading?

Do people actually trade?

Because you have a game you don't want.

Maybe it wasn't what you expected. Maybe it was a game you enjoyed but it's only good for some many plays before it starts feeling repetitive. Maybe it's a really old game that you just aren't excited about anymore. Maybe your game group refuses to play it. Maybe you got it as a gift. Maybe you saw it at a ridiculously cheap price and knew you could trade it for more than you paid for it.

Regardless, you have a game you don't want... and there is a whole wide world of games that you do want. Time for a trade!

I trade because my collection got out of control, so I typically try to send more than I receive. My final goal is to only have games I will actually play, not own because they look cool.

I don't trade my games. I hoard them.

I trade games that don't see enough play in my collection, because I believe games were made to be played.
