My philosophy on Thumbs:
Starting in May, 2014, if I've written something, and you've taken the time to post a response (whether I agree with it or not) and it isn't in any way irrational (ad hominem
attacks come to mind), then I'm going to give you a thumb. Yep, just for taking the time to interact. Sometimes we forget that the people on the other end of the connection are human too, and that everyone likes to get a thumb!
My BGG Marketplace philosophy:
I will not charge extra to receive a payment via PayPal, as I consider the fees a cost of doing business.Due to the large number of Brazil-bound packages I have mailed that have never reached their destinations, I will no longer ship anything to that country. I'm sorry if that means you miss out on trades, auctions, dice, etc. Take it up with your country's postal service.Items listed as "For Trade" are items I'm actively looking to unload, but almost nothing is off limits. I will consider offers for almost anything in my collection.
I like to play games. I make every effort to keep my games in good shape (and most of them are still in excellent condition), but things happen -- a card gets creased, or a board gets scuffed, or perhaps a box gets dinged up. If you're the type of person who insists that every item they acquire must be in near-mint/never played condition, I'm probably not the person to trade with, since you'll probably get a game that has been (horrors!) played and enjoyed.
I guarantee a smoke-free environment for anything which I am the original owner.
You can feel confident in my packaging abilities. I spent some years working in the shipping/receiving department of a now defunct games distributor, and have seen the results of poor packaging. I make every effort to ensure that games are not damaged in shipping.Feel free to add me as a Facebook friend, but if you do so, please send a message with your BGG UserName so that I don't ignore it.
Thanks for looking!
