I'm trying to find people in Calgary, Alberta on boardgamegeek to game with and also to trade with via BGG's trade system.

My problem is that I can't find a way to search for users by city. Somewhere around this site I found something that let's you enter a postal code to find people 'x' miles away from you but it doesn't seem to accept Canadian postal codes.

Also, I want to trade games with people but unless I specifically have a game in my trade list and they have it in their want list then I can't find other traders in my city.

So, my questions are:

1. How can I list all other users in my city?
2. How can I see the trade lists of all other users in my city?

Click on the to go to his group's Meetup.com page.

You might also want to look at the Alberta guild.

Unfortunately, I don't see a way to look up deals by location. However, the excellent gaming resources in Calgary should let you get with other gamers, try games before you buy them, and perhaps deal for some games.

Nope, that doesn't work. That's the first thing I tried. It only accepts US postal codes.

I didn't know about the Flag thing. I did so much searching, looked at faqs, and did numerous forum seaches. Thanks.
