Is the trading post a one way trade? Can I not say trade one rare resource for two uncommon resource? Or two coal for an uncommon/whistle?

You can trade a rare for 2 common resources, or 2 common resources for 1 rare.
You can trade a rare for a rare, or a common for a common.
You can trade a common for 2 coal or a whistle.

There is no option, however, for turning 2 coal into 1 common or 2 coal into 1 Whistle, or 1 Whistle into 1 common.

There are upgrades that let you turn coal into a whistle or into any resource.

The trading of 2 common resources for 1 rare is not specifically mentioned (that I can find) in the rules, but the trading post tiles do seem to indicate it is possible due to the use of the plus signs. Regardless, without your comment here, I would have assumed it impossible due to the lack of a rule mentioning it.

Anyway,my wife and I just got the game, but we love it! Thanks, Scott!
