Cherries for Berries, the first deal. :eusa_clap:

Is it agreed? If so let me know and I'll mark those items off the list.

I'll add 2 new ones.


Sparlin: SpinBank (new in package) drop any coin in and it spins on a pedistool. Great as a kids toy or a place to store pocket change.

Sparlin: Levitron OMEGA (New/Unwrapped in box)- a physics toy that uses magnetism to levitate at spinning top. It take some effort to balance out the magnets, but works well once it is set up.

Fastlane Lesson 1.0- do not assume gender of anyone here. ATW is female. I know you meant know offense, just wanted you to know.


Typos are easy :).... but it 's a good point. I sent him an email about that this morning.

It seems your strawberry plants are the hot item right now. Thanks guys for getting this going.

More items are still needed, and offers need to be made for the game to advance.


I think qwerety was interested in the Cobain DVD,... wonder how he will get that?
Any suggestions?

Second, in regards to your question, I will let you know by this weekend. How many would you want for the cookie press?
Thanks for telling me.

About the strawberry plants, how many strawberries could you get with 1 plant? Also, how long would a plant last? Like say one gave up about 20 berries at a time how many more cycles of berries would it grow. Whats a good estimate for that?

Hey guys, Unfortunately I have to take a short leave of absence from the game.

I will have no internet access until the first of aug. I will be doing some camping and fishing at the coast. Gotta fill the Freezer till November when we go back again.

My daughter with a 2 foot bonnet head shark, me with a 29" red, my wife with a 27" Spanish Mackerel on our last trip 2 weeks ago.

Nice Pics. Enjoy the fishing. I remember swimming off a peer in North Carolina all day, then I went fishing there that night only to learn they just caught a 5 foot tiger shark where I had been swimming. :float: Oh well.

I'm not sure if the game is going to keep going, it depends if I there will be enough interest in it continueing. For now, do you want to leave the DVD up for bids, or pull it?

Round 2 ended with a couple of trades in progress. Right now things are moving slowly, however there seems to be enough interest that I'll keep it going. Next Round ends on Friday at 10pm Central.


Remember, the goal is to learn how to leverage your assets to get things you want. Post items and trade until you acquire something of value to you. It may take 3 or 4 unfavorable trades in order to obtain your end goal. You don't have to mail off your trades until the 3rd business day, so you will have some time to trade off an undesired item (you don't have to mail each one that way). I have to admit, making a good trade is a bit challenging, but that’s the whole purpose. Try to make an unfavorable situation one that works to your advantage. Think you can do it? I’m not sure you can (Intentional ribbing). Good Luck!


Current Items are listed above in Permalink #67

Please see the poll at the top of the thread. Thankyou.

I'm waiting for rcardin to get back, because I liked your offers in post 69 and I want to see if that goes through. I don't really have any suggestions or anything for the game. Seems fine to me and the only way it could be better is if we had more people participating, but that has nothing to do with the setup of the game.

Another round has ended. I thought I would post this link for those who haven't seen it to show how barters can work and the potential of negotiating trades. I was hoping this could be a learning tool of sorts while still entertaining. Thanks to all who have participated. At this point, I'm just going to leave the game open for a few more weeks. If it's still slow, I'll close it out.

This was the original offer made weeks ago. Qwerety is after your Cobain dvd, or at least a copy of it. I don't know if there is still any interest in the cookie press.
