pax east: trading / swap meet ...meet

sillyzombie666sillyzombie666 massRegistered User regular
last year I attended a few diff meets and they were a blast, so i was wondering if any one wanted to meet up to swap... any thing, retro games, cards, legos , mini figs, home made geekery , hats, goggles, bit art, pins, so on and so on

so what does every one think?

    Ooh, we should do that again. Or at least, a regional snack swap. I'd love a chance to hand out Old Bay UTZ chips.

  • vicechanvicechan Registered User regular
    Oh, the International Food Exchange will be on. :D If the thread does get created before then, I planned on starting it around January. Give us all some time to find stuff, put together a wishlist, and maybe post some wants.

    Craft beer swap? That sounds interesting...

  • CabadrinCabadrin Registered User regular
    I'd be down with a craft beer swap and a food swap - I have a lot of rarer stuff I'd love to share with fellow PAXers (Dogfish 120 min and World Wide Stout, Brooklyn Black Ops, aged Stone 08/08/08). Any excuse to get tanked with nerds!

    The noms where indeed Epic.

    I'm all about a swap meet though. Geek souvenirs are better when they have XP attached to it.

    I know that I have a bunch of incomplete trading card sets from the 90s that I'd be willing to shuffle around: Marvel, DC, Ninja Turtles, Gulf War.

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    I just started collecting the Lego minifigs, so maybe I would have a good amount of doubles by then. I have three different figure doubles. Might have some extra Ninja Turtles by then too to swap for some other good stuff.

    I also get other blind box items here and there that I have some doubles of (Ninjatown, Street Fighter).

    well i make alot of things for fun so my idea is to brings stuff i dont feel like selling and just swap them with other things people made or have. i have lots of odd thing like small zelda chests that play the you got something in a box music, musical snes and genesis controller belt buckles, the list goes on. we could also trade swag, but i would like the food and beer swapping to stay in their own threads/ meets UNLESS we would like to combine every thing

    Just one table where you bring anything and everything. Haha. That would be a site to see.

    "I'll give you a beer and my PAX East 2010 trading card for two of your Lego minifigs!"

    edit: Actually, that doesn't sound like a horrible idea. Maybe we could list what we are bringing for swapsies and just be like "meet at the TRADE ALL THINGS table." Of course, there could be issues like people not bringing what they are supposed to, etc etc. Just thinking out loud.

    Well I will be bringing my Magic the Gathering cards and I hope there will be more people that do likewise! If so, maybe we can get together a little friendly tournament? Just an idea. Can't wait for March!

    the food exchange is a different event but odds are this swap meet would be in about the same place food court at a random table

    Should we start a list of what people want vs. what people are bringing or want to bring?

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular

    Like, a general list of things we would like to bring for trade? I'd be in for that just to see if anyone is up to swap thingamabobs of sorts.

    Sounds like a plan. I actually have a ton of Pokemon cards I've been trying to offload. First editions, holographics, original sets. I know they aren't popular anymore, but I can imagine there are still people who would be interested. In terms of food, I'll probably bring Rolos to start.

  • Hyperion098Hyperion098 Registered User regular
    would any one be interested in trading some older ps3 xbox 360 games?

    I'm one of those people. Got a list of stuff? Feel free to PM to keep the thread on track. :)

  • redfield85redfield85 Registered User regular
    I kind of got back into Pokemon cards in the past year or so, but haven't really played (maybe a few times vs a friend). I still get packs from time to time because who doesn't like to collect? I already have billions of the old stuff (which I will gladly trade). If anyone is interested we could PM about what we have. I'm surprised there isn't some sort of card game forum meet-ups for trading and playing.

    I have some extra Lego minifigs (Space Marine, Pirate, and, uhh, fancy Swordsman? I believe they are all from Series 7-8). I have others that I would part with too. Again, PM me.

    I think I have an extra blue Blanka Kidrobot figure (with sticker card). I also have some Ninjatown figs too.

    Same here.

    Just a side note, I noticed there were often some good trading / casual game opportunities at the Hotel Lobby of the Westin in the hours before PAX opens its doors. I know it sucks for people who are not at the Westin, but, just saying.

    Also, not sure if it's inappropriate to ask, but seeing I stopped playing soon after Avacyn Restored was released, I would love anyone's trash cards from either Core 2013 or Ravnica. I will trade or compensate of course. Or maybe we need an MTG thread.

    I have a bunch of board games and probably some video games I'd be willing to trade, but honestly, I'm taking the train, so I'm not going to bring stuff up if I don't already know I have interest. I'll update later (if I remember) with the video games, but the board game list is:

    Alien Frontiers
    Blokus
    Braggart
    Colossal Arena
    Dominion
    Dominion Black Market Promo
    Dominion: Cornucopia
    Dominion: Envoy Promo
    Dominion: Hinterlands
    Dominion: Stash Promo
    (would love to trade all the Dominion stuff in one shot)

    Eminent Domain
    Eminent Domain: Bonus Planets
    (together as a set)

    Factory Fun
    Get Nifty
    Glen More
    In a Pickle
    Kung Fu Fighting
    Puerto Rico
    Scattergories
    Thurn and Taxis (maybe, I'm on the fence about trading this one)
    Twister


    I'll keep an eye on this thread or PM me if there's any interest, so I know what to bring.

    I dont have Ravnica because I didnt necessarily buy things from that set, but I have things from Gatecrash. I'll take a look at what extras I have.

    im kinda waiting to see offers made but i just haven't seen enough activity in here yet, i've seen people saying ill do it but not much substance.

    also theres no pannel schedual out yet so usually people wait until that so i can pick a time with the least conflict, since i will be attending the food exchange, going to the mega 64 pannel and the power glove show(if those are on friday)
