I just had to say that after hanging around BGG for several years, I have only realised the true value of the trade system.
Last weekend, I made my first trade with a user who lives locally, and scored myself two new games, one of which I'd been eyeing-off for a long time. It also allowed me to trade away two games I really didn't like.
It feels so much better to have someone actually use the games than have them sitting idle on the shelf.
And best of all, it cost me nothing.
Get those unwanted games in your collection as "For Trade". I'm hooked and on the hunt! Thanks BGG.
Welcome to the club, the next step is to jump in a math trade, I think I've seen an Aussie MT or 2 run.
