Local Sale/Trade section


From time to time I have a game that, while it is a good game, is not just a good fit for whatever reason. I like to turn around and sell/trade these with other people in my area. Shipping costs sometimes make a long distance trade unfeasible, but if there was a way to post games for sale/trade, specify your location, and then let other users search to see if there is anything of interest, that would be great!

I am planning to add some marketplace functionality to the site where you can see the sell/trade listings on the game's pages in the future. For now though you're welcome to make a post on the forum for that. /u/FirstJohn318 has done a few postings for game sales.

This sounds cool, but I like the idea of having local trades/sales. Maybe it's a users number thing that makes BGG really work for that, but as BGA grows it might be nice to have. Perhaps it's just a forum post, but as the forum is a large list I could get lost easily.

I'd like to be able to support local trades/sales as well. I think it'll be something I can build a good system for once the userbase grows. A few things I'm planning to offer are meetup organization, local trades/sales, local game store integration, and a few other features.

I like the idea of the local sales/trades because then BGA doesn't have to worry about enforcing sale/trade disputes and the can of worms that represents. I'll keep trying to get it to grow so that someday this is a possibility.

Yes. I have a bunch of games for if you can intrigue me but mostly for sale. I recently sold 2 games (machi koro and flashpoint for reference) to someone cross country for about $20 shipping. Shipped Friday got there Monday. /u/lucioghosty as a reference.
