This is a simple puzzle I came across when reading a GAMES magazine article about Sid Sackson. A GG tip goes to the first person with the correct answer.

The two exchange cards pictured are in play, and you currently have two red stones and one white stone. How can you claim the ware card (three green, two white) in just three trades, with no stones left over?



Please use spoiler tags when posting an answer, so that others can try the puzzle as well. Give a thumbs up to anyone that you think has the right answer; I'll confirm the correct solution early next week.
