What we have here is a failure to communicate.
Games I want and are willing to trade have been given a number of points designated to them. The more points means the more I desire a game or the tougher it is for me willing to give up. Generally, in any trade, I'd prefer if the number of points is around the same, at least 75% of each other. Also, when trading, it is recommended for non-star users such as myself to only trade with those that do have a star. Thus, if a non-star user is really desperate to make me an offer, the only way I would consider it is if they are willing to send first at their own risk. I will also consider selling in some circumstances; in this case the buyer would need to send a check or money order.
This is how I interpret the meanings of game conditions:
Brand New: Just that, it's a new game that's still sealed and never been played. Basically flawless.
Excellent: A game that has only been played a few times, with no real blemishes while the instruction book and case are in great condition.
Very Good: Similar to excellent, only the game might have been played a good deal, with small blemishes at worst. For cartridges, this means no peeling of and no writing on the sticker. For disks, minor scratches are allowed, but nothing real noticeable. Case and instruction book are still in decent condition.
Good: This is basically the type of game bought used at a place like gamestop. The disk might have some noticeable scratches, and a cart might have peeling or writing on it. The case might not in the best of conditions, and can have a price sticker attached or have major residue. The instruction book might be worn, but still useable. For a game in good condition, I am primarily concerned with the actual game disk/cartridge itself and if it plays well, that's what matters.
I don't accept or trade any game that's not in at least good condition. While I'm in the process of making a trade with another person here, I expect both parties to agree with these condition definitions.
Update (8/13): My SNES broke down a while back, so I have no way of verifying if those games still work although they were perfectly fine before that. I would send first in these circumstances.
