Hi everyone,

I just found this site, and I LOVE it. Great questions & answers. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a site (associated with PBS or not) that lets us swap video games (wii, psp, ds, etc) ???

Thanks in advance, Kristy

As far as I know, there is none but I wish there were. I have some games I'd love to get rid of and there are titles I'd love to pick up.

Not at the moment, but what a great idea.

I think they've talked about starting a video game swap sister site.  Why don't you go down to the bottom right corner of any page, and under "company" click on "contact us."  Use the Feedback option there to put in a plug for it!!

Swap.com will let you swap video games, however they don't deal in points. There are one-for-one swaps and then there are three-person swaps where the person who wants what you have has something that a third person wants and that third person has what you want. The site finds swaps for you, so it's not complicated.

I've swapped for a few games at swap.com.  They were older games and not worth much, but it was pretty simple. Depending on value and interest you can swap books, or DVDs and CDs for games there.

Definitely use Feedback to vote for a sister site for swapping games.  I've made this suggestion myself before, so any further help it gets from others is a plus!  wink

I've used Swap.com to get some games, but find the PBS system infinitely superior to my experience over there.  I would much rather do it the PBS way.
