A couple of users have messaged me about boardgaming groups in leeds. I attend leeds Uni Sci fi society gaming day every saturday 3-10pm in the student union building. Non students are welcome. I've also heard that one of the local shops, traveling man runs board game evenings on the first tuesday of the month.
Feel free to message me about trades prior to trading, but you don't have too.
I'm only interested in trading the games currently in my trade list. Don't bother offering me trades for other games i own. However may consider offers for games not on my want list, especially for games i've ranked at 6 or lower.
My favourite mechanics are hidden information, bluffing, negotiation and large maps that you can conquer.
I have a boardgame and rpg blog that focuses on more obscure titles http://lestradesgame.blogspot.co.uk/
