    Not sure if this exist? Or if it is frowned upon ?Not sure why it would be but who knows? I wanted to put together a thread For people who has grown tired of their machine or people who's machine should be rotated on route. If you have a game that you want to trade with another pinside member please post the game you have and certain games you may be willing to trade for. This is not a sale. There will be no money exchanged between members. Some feel they may get a better end of the deal where others think that it was perfectly Fair. I repeat No money offered period. Game for Game that's how this should be handled. If you have a game please post the picture and a description of its condition and what you may want in trade.

    Operators can use this as well. If you have a game that has been in a location for a while and you do not want to spend the money on a new game just trade it with another member. Game for Game.

    Private owners can play a game in their home and when it starts getting old to them trade it out for another game from another member with a similar problem. Old to you is not old to them.

    Please NO Money exchanges this is not a sale.
    Thank you,

    There is a trade only option for market place adds. People will have a lot better luck getting a trade going that route.

    #3 1 year ago

    I felt this would be the proper form for a lot of people that even have the slightest bit of Interest in trading one or a few of their games. People can scroll through the history and see at any time what games were in discussion. Thank you very much for informing me on other methods.

    I am tired of my Shadow, trade me your gb premium or woz. No cash on top makes this a no brainer for me!

    I do not see how this would work. Will be hard to find an even and fair trade.

    #5 1 year ago

    This sounds much easier than keyword searching through the marketplace or regional for sale threads. Nice one!

    #6 1 year ago

    I appreciate your contribution. I'm sure others will take it under advisement. Perhaps if you have a MM that you have played for a while and now want a MB or FAM. Would be more in line with what I was thinking. How about if someone had a GOT and they wanted a GB perhaps that is a good example as well.

    #7 1 year ago

    I feel it would not be that bad. I for one would like to look through a thread and see if someone has a game that I might be more interested in playing and if I have a game collecting dust in my collection that is on there want list. Why not.

    Let's try to handle our selves more professional than the last thread.
    But again thank you for contributing your comment.

    I still think it is not very realistic to trade 1 game for another with no cash changing hands. Sure my example was a bit extreme but what would I be able to trade my Shadow for then? Seems JM comes up often but Shadow is worth a good bit more than JM. Could say Congo but even that is $400 off. Of course condition rules here and my prices were based on the pinside estimates.

    #9 1 year ago

    I do not see this working out and I have been succsesfully trading pins and arcades for 12 years. Location, condition, value... All of those things have to match up for me, not just "I don't want to play this game any longer and want something different."

    If anyone wants to trade me a Radical! for my Taxi, let me know.

    #10 1 year ago

    find a better way to boost your profile than a thread for trades when they have a feature on Pinside to do just that.
    perhaps start 50+ threads for trades in each State / so people can avoid shipping charges too that would boost your ratings big time

    I pretty much only trade my pins so here goes.
    I have a Custom Pinball Refinery Metallica pro pinball

    Mirror blades
    Sparky Lcd Mod
    All armour powder coated lolipop purple
    Red translucent apron with interactive led lighting
    Led custom backbox lighting with game play
    Underneath cab led lighting with gameplay
    Chrome flipper bats and buttons
    Chrome shooter housing
    Mantis mystery hole protector
    Cliffy shooter lane protector plus mylar.
    Pinbits plastic protectors
    Sparky airball plastic
    Sparky el wire mod

    Getting really tired of these people. Pinside is for everyone. If you don't like the thread. Please do not read it. If you do not have anything to contribute please stay away. People are trying to have fun with the hobby.

    #18 1 year ago

    I have an F14 that I'm looking to trade that's in really nice shape for another system 11 or a slightly newer DMD. Full leds and plays awesome. Details and photos can be exchanged if a trade is offered.

    I contributed and yet you down voted me because you didn't like it. Wasnt being a jerk, just pointing out that there's a trade option in the market place which gives you a ton more exposure. It allows people to easily search a game and see if any are for trade or sale. It's also not realistic that trades are going to be even and no cash will be needed to balance it.

    Pinside is an open forum which means everyone can read and respond as they like. It's not custom made for only what you want.

    #20 1 year ago

    Jgentry. My apologies you are correct I should not have down voted you. I will retract it. I just did not want the entire thread to get negative and way off topic.

    If this thread helps a few people find some trades then that is awesome. You never know until you try. I just thought maybe you were not aware of the market place trade option.

Seems JM comes up often but Shadow is worth a good bit more than JM. Could say Congo but even that is $400 off. Of course condition rules here and my prices were based on the pinside estimates.

    I have traded many games this way.
    Remember... There are costs incurred to pick up and drop off a game as well. As well as your time. So your $400 off goes out the window. Would you waste a whole day of travel to get that $400. - your gas. And food etc etc.

    Or would you trade even if it was dropped off at your door and the other pin was picked up.

    In fact I traded my BOP, pinbot and bk2000 for a totan. Because the person drove 12hrs round trip and dropped it off at my door. And picked the pins up.
    Totally worth it. Time is money. Sure I could have sold the pins I had. Then tried to find a Totan somewhere for sale eventually for a reasonable price. (Hard around here)Then had to go get it.
    Spent money on gas. Had to bring a friend to help move them. Bought lunch for the two of us.

    This way I got what game I wanted. And made someone else happy they got pins they wanted.
    Without having to do all the leg work.
    Or spending a cent.

    That's a deal!

    #28 1 year ago

    Logistics is usually the number one thing that kills all deals. It seems like this would be alot easier if dealing locally. Again who knows if a few people are able to make a deal mission accomplished.

    i know a lot of people in your country. None with pinball machines. If you ever get into SE florida , you are welcome to come over and play pins here. Not sure why you would trade away your Totan unless you are short on cash / But Metallica is my #1 pin on my top 10 list so understandable.
    Only Negative Downvoters need not apply/ Keep away !! Have Fun /play more pinball

    #30 1 year ago

    Well I have shadow for trade. The only thing I am interested in that is near the same value is NGG. If someone wants to make the trade let's do it.

    Cool man, thanks! Coincidentally, there are a few vacation trips to the US that I'm planning for the next years to come... one is to make a car trip 'round California, including of course, the Napa Valley; and another is to visit South Florida, including Boca Raton, Ft Lauderdale, etc.... Me and my wife were planning to make the Cali trip this past winter (summer for you guys), but work caught up and instead we spent 2 weeks at Bariloche, ARG (from hot sun to cold snow, huh?)... well, maybe next year!

    As for the trade, there are plenty of TotAN's down here, so I could get another one in a heartbeat.... and Metallica is also one of my dream pins!!!!
