Hello Everyone,

I'm having a bit of a hard time finding trade partners for these games. While I see a lot of people with these games listed on Want for Trade, no one wants to actually pull the trigger on making a trade. Anyway, figure I'd try here.

What I'm specifically looking for are the games on my want list. I suppose I could also sell these games, but would prefer one buyer, so as to save on shipping. Well, that's all.

Glad to be a new member of BGG!

Alan

What has been your issue? People not replying, or just not having the games you want? I know that I often have wants, but I don't necessarily want this for that type of thing.

Anyways, for what it's worth, I want your copy of AoE3, but I don't see any games on your wantlist that I am willing to trade.

I'm having problems finding people to trade with too. I think it's because we have no trade feedback, unfortunately :/ Well, if no one ever gives us a chance, we'll never have feedback. It's beginning to irritate me :[

I even offered a trade to someone who told me he wasn't sure if he wanted to part with his game. Then why is it on your freakin trade list? lol..

Anyway, best of luck. Wish your games appealed to me so we could make a trade-

Kevin

I'm not sure if that is the case. I pretty much trust most people on here with or without feedback. A lot of times though, it might be trade desire. Like I have Shogun listed for trade. I actually don't want to trade it much, but if I got a game in my top 2 or 3 wants then I might. A lot of people experience some difficulties getting trades together, and I know I have.

If you get really serious with it you can always try math trades. They run trial runs where no games change hands but you can learn the system. Honestly they are pretty easy to do but can intimidate people. Most of my trades come through there now as I find you can get the games you want easier at times since you don't have to have the same game preferences as the person you are trading with.

Haha, yeah 90% of my trade declines are from people who say they didn't want the game in the first place, even though it was on their list. Oh well, maybe it's just a nice way of saying no.

Yeah, maybe that's my problem. The games I want are the games people want to keep. Although, I'm fairly certain the majority of my trade requests are through matches (for trade, and want in trade). Guess I should start looking at those math trades.

I'm interested in Runewars. Check out my trade AND owned lists and let me know if I have anything you might want. I would trade multiple games for your one.

Welcome to the geek! cool

Holy crap, dude... thanks! I was just trying to figure out how to earn geek gold. I'm thinking I'll still make a contribution, just cause I know how hard it is for nonprofits to function. But yeah, really appreciate it... let me know if you ever need anything.

Well contributing is cool if you use this a lot. But that way you can use your geekgold on microbadges.

You're asking for more geekgold aren't you? Haha, man I LOVE the Thunder. They have been good this past week but scared me the few weeks before the Minnesota game last week.

Sidetracked convo - Are you a fan of anyone Aonex? Or just aware of NBA happenings.

I'm actually originally from LA, so yeah I'm a Lakers fan (should be a great game tonight)... I'd say after the Lakers, I like the Thunder and the Bulls (both led by quiet, unassuming superstars), then the Spurs (Tim Duncan plays D&D).

Yes, Tim Duncan is a regular D&D player. He has said as much on interviews with Jay Leno and ESPN guys. I thought most gamers knew that.

On a side track, Vin Diesel plays, as do two of the band members for Creed.

(Okay, totally sidetracked conversation - I will look at your trade list and see if anything piques my interest. If it does, I will try to assist you in amassing your games, although no guarantees - I just sold off 18 games in a recent flea market at my FLGS).

You could also try Math Trades. It is also a good way to build up some trade feedback. Not that I have a lot of trade ratings but all of them I got via Math trades.

p.s. Go Raps! (for a good lottery pick that is)

I would recommend a Math Trade.

I've also had success by finding everyone who had what I wanted for trade, geekmailing each one (I just copied and pasted), and letting each one know that they had something I wanted and offered my main "For Trade" items.

Most of them ignored me, some said "no", some said "maybe", and one said "yes"!

Welcome!

Contributions are certainly welcome, but BGG is a for-profit site. I don't bring this up as a dissuasion (see patron badge; I personally don't have a problem with it), but I wanted to make sure you had awareness.
