Here some guidelines for the participants to link to.
Passing a game around is a sort of multi-user open trade. I started it by giving away Funkenschlag (Power Grid) away for free. People then offered some games that they would be willing to pass on, in order to receive Funkenschlag.
From the list of games offered, I picked the one I found the most interesting, and which I believed would gather the most users wanting to make a bid for it.
To round up the rules:
- in order to qualify yourself for the game(s) being offered, you will have to reply that particular thread, stating which game(s) you are willing to pass on in order to get the game being offered.
- both "seller" and "buyer" should list the state of their game(s). Is it complete? Is it marked by heavy use? A link to the BGG entry of that game would be nice too.
- If you are offering multiple games, please state clearly if you are making several seperate offers, or if you are offering a bundle of games as one package.
- Even if games has been offered two games for one, the owner may decide to split the games up when it is his/her turn to pass on the games.
If something should be added to this list, please send me a message. Have fun passing on your games.
So... if it's about reciprocity, game condition, etc., how is this any different from trading?
