Default Question about Merchants

Hi guys new to Munchkin, been hooked on it for about a month now and loving it. Have Deluxe, Booty and just got Munchkin impossible. Have a questions my group was confused about.

First in Munchkin Booty how does the Merchants swap an item ability work? I had a situation where before combat resolved I wanted to pick up a weapon I had equipped using the ability. There was some debate if I could do that as it says "Swap" and I would have to equip something in it's place. What is actually legal here?

Also could I use the Cheat card with a Ship enhancer and still get it's bonuses?

Hmmmm. High-Pressure Negotiator doesn't actually say "swap," and the word "swap" never appears on the Merchant card. So, if you're sure about that wording, maybe you mean another card.

Anyway, that Merchant ability lets you change which Items you are using (i.e., if you were using one Armor Item, and were carrying other Armor Items, and you decide you want to use a different Item, so you switch which one you are using), and it allows you to trade with other players, both during combat, which is normally illegal. A trade between two players can involve one player giving another player an Item or Items and receiving nothing in return.

What High-Pressure Negotiator does not let you do, is take an Item back to your hand, which is what I'm inferring you were trying to do. That's is the Explorer's (from Jump The Shark) Resourcefulness ability, which doesn't talk about swapping cards, either.

As for the Cheat! question, it's easier for me to just point here, at this point, rather than try to explain (or remember) it all:
