About me: Well, I've been a registered BGG user since 2001, and here I am, more than halfway through 2010, writing a profile synopsis for the first time. I'll leave it to the psychologists to determine what that says about me.

First, the practical stuff: I am a frequent BGG game trader. My preference if you want to trade is to first send me a geekmail outlining the proposal. I'm not a fan of sending formal trade proposals through the BGG trade manager without first discussing them. The trade manager doesn't include condition, edition, etc., and, while counter-offers are possible, it's not all that conducive to tweaking and enlarging trades.

Speaking of which, I do prefer to cobble together multi-game trades when possible. Why? Well, I have more than 200 trade feedback ratings (all positive, so far!). While some are for math trades that didn't involve shipping, most were trades via mail. Add in the fact that about 20 percent of traders don't bother to leave feedback and that I had completed many trades via BGG before the feedback system was developed, and I'm guessing I've shipped close to 250 game parcels. The medium-box USPS Priority Mail flat-rate option is about as good as it gets, but that's nearly $11 to ship a single game. Doesn't sound all that bad, but when you consider the number of trades I've made, that's about $2,750 in shipping costs - phew! So, these days I prefer to trade three or more games at once and ship via USPS parcel post, which usually tops out at around $15, or a per-game cost of $5 - less than half of the cost to ship a single game.

If you happen to live in Massachusetts, I host game sessions in Waltham on the first and last Saturday of each month. We play everything from filler and party games to monsters, but the GNAT (Game Night at Terry's) group tends to favor the light heavyweights like Goa, Caylus, Agricola, etc. - games that require some thought and typically fall into the hour-and-a-half to two-hour time frame. If you're in the area and would like to join a GNAT session, just send me a geekmail.
