Here is what I was first offered for my single matchstick

First Trade

I traded the matchstick for a green pen with Nikki

Fourth Trade

I trade the 2 business books with Nick for 18 bottles of First Sighting Wine

Fifth Trade

I trade the 2 cases of First Sighting Wine with Claire for a Holiday in Utopia

Sixth Trade

I traded the holiday for cash with Gaynor and Gerald, and that turned into quite an experiment

Seventh Trade

I trade the cash with Claire for a hot air balloon flight

Eighth Trade

I traded the hot air balloon flight with Dj Al Your Pal for a party of the century!

Ninth & Tenth Trades

My next 2 trades involved Eran and Eric of Springleap, 375 Tshirts and another 216 people.

Eleventh Trade

I turned the result of the Tshirt Trade into a Rock the House with WONDERboom experience

Twelth Trade

I traded the WONDERboom Rock Concert with Rene & Nina into 3 Boxes of Tech for an Off the Grid Lifestyle

Thirteenth Trade

I traded 3 Boxes of Tech (Off the Grid Lifestyle), into a podium, TV, projector and window blinds, and those into the office space.
