    I traded a prize I won at an amusement park all the way up to a Baja Dune Buggy. It was a cheap „Made in China“ Batman guitar, but I only spent $5 on the game. I felt I’d already began trading up from the $5 bill so I just kept going lol . Not close to as impressive, but it was an interesting experience. You will put a lot of time in and deal with many rude people, but if you can weather the storm, trading up can be lots of fun.
