Trading Horror Stories

Premium User

I recently listed a few games for trade on BGG and almost instantaneously received some trade requests. I'm not a huge trader because shipping is so expensive now a days, but it made me wonder if anyone on BGA has some horrible trading stories. I'm thinking like a game you were supposed to receive that never got sent out or maybe you sent your end of the trade to the wrong address. Anyone got any good stories?

I have had only a few trade experiences. They have been very good experiences.

I haven't done any trades before so nothing from me :(

But I have heard of users who did math trades and accidentally checked the wrong box and offered the wrong (and a much more valuable) game haha

There are practice math trades where no one actually sends anything, you can participate just for a dress rehearsal.

That seems like just a tease

Really? No trades ever or just no bad ones? 

Last BGG math trade I only checked boxes for cash offers in my matrix and wound up getting next to nothing for them lol.

Only real bad experience I had with a trade..a guy agreed to a trade then realized he didn't have the rulebook for the game he was sending. Found it eventually but when I received the game it was missing components. Again he eventually found it and sent them to me but yeah it was a mess for a bit lol
