Since I am asking about a website feature, I maybe should have posted elsewhere, but it's trade related so...

How do I search for users that want a game I have, where I am not worried about what they have for trade?

I have just a few titles left in my collection that I no longer require, and would like to find trade matches. Thing is, I basically have all the games I know I want, so there is little left in my want list.

I would like to search for users that want what I have to offer, and I'll likely take whatever they are offering. Short of posting here (I know I could, I just dont want to bother people on an ongoing basis about games that are not exactly in demand) am I missing a click, or is there no such feature?

My other option of course is to wait for the next UK (or APO friendly US) Math trade.

1. Go to the game page of the game you own.
2. Scroll down, under Statistics, there is a "Users Wanting" link -- select it -- it will show you who wants that game.
3. Select each user in turn to see their trade lists.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

That's it. Unfortunately there isn't a way to filter this by country or region or to get an aggregated sortable list of games. This is my most wanted BGG feature.

While you can't sort by region, you can sort by country.

1) Hover over Bazaar, click on trades.
2) Select Custom Search
3) Highlight the game you're looking to trade, and check the box on the far right 'search my country only'

It'll match up people trading games you want, for the selected game, in the country you live.


Read the OP again a biit more carefully; that's not what we're looking for. Essentiallly, we want the inverse of the "match any in my collection" button: show us all possible trades for a game I have (not one I want) even if I don't have the games on my want list.

I was quite aware of what he was asking for specifically, I thought I'd try and be helpful by suggesting a way that you, not he, could sort by country in some manner.

Lesson learned.


In that case, read my post a bit more carefully. I'm looking for the same thing as the OP.

Getting a little snarky in here, aren't we?

Anyways, the easiest way to do it is pretty obvious. Go down the list of 58,780 games and start adding them to your "want for trade" list. Shouldn't take too long.
