    Don't mean to thread jack, but would a St. Lamvinus be able to land one?

    I would say no. The price on the St. Lam is up there, but it can be acquired for a lot less than a Vanilla.

    A few months ago, I traded BCBVS+KH for NG Kriek + Gueuze. All parties involved were pleased with the transaction.

    Well I have a post in the forums now for Cherry Rye plus either coffee or bolt cutter. Haven't had any hits on that one yet...

    How about a coffee and a bolt cutter? I don't have any cherry, quite doubtful that I will get any either.

    2 Cherry Rye and a coffee for A Vanilla and a Bramble and a Hardwoody Gingerbread.

    I traded mine away for an '08 Darkness. The full trade was BCBVS and Bramble for an '08 Darkness and a 4 pack of WET. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

    If I had a Vanilla, I would do that. Seems reasonable.

    How many BCS 2011 or 2012 would it take?

    Do you guys think a King Henry would land one?
  21. MarkIntihar

    MarkIntihar Mar 17, 2010 Michigan

    I traded a King Henry straight up for one back around the time of KH release. But I also heard of people who traded two KHs for one, so who knows, lol.

    Yeah, I think they're pretty close to 1:1

    Hmm. I wonder if 2 2011+3-4 2012 get it done?

    Not to be a skeptic or anything, but considering the availability of 2012 BCBS, I don't know if it'd trade well for Vanilla. Probably a Venn Diagram issue.

    You're probably 100% right.

    Would Mamouche trade 1:1 for BCBVS?
  31. tbadiuk

    Possibly, as Mamouche is just as rare as Fou'Foune technically. However, FF is the one that has the big draw. It really depends on finding someone who isn't min-maxing. For example, I traded Fou'Foune $4$ towards regular BCBS this last spring and was perfectly happy doing so...

    I actually made this exact offer about 2-3 weeks ago (asking for BCBVS) and got zero responses.

    BA9K for BCBVS straight up? Or do any of you out there feel either end should throw in a little more?
