What does this mean and how does it work?

Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/ is required for this event.

Never done one of these before.

Oh, that's a software that helps create the trade chains. Basically, Math Trades help facilitate large complex trades where you might want something that someone has, but that person is interested in another item that someone else possess.

Let's have 3 people, A, B, and C. Person A has a game person B likes, but Person A has no interest in anything B has. However, A is interested in something C has, who has no interest in anything A has. C wants something B has though. If all 3 people knew each other, A would send his game to B, B to C, and C to A. The OLWLG basically helps us match people in those kinds of situations, but on a much larger scale.

You will need to go there and request a log in. It will send a mail to your Geekmail and set up an account, linking your BGG account to the OLWGS. Afterward, you can submit your trade items onto the geeklist for this trade and it will show up on the generator. Once done, you will tick off what games you want and what you are willing to trade it for. Once the deadline passes, I will make some magic and you shall hopefully get what you want!

You can take a look at this place to get started. Let me know if it's still confusing. It's a lot to take in at once, but once you get through it, it'll be very easy.

I'll reopen it since it's a small trade. I'll leave it open until 10pm tonight and do one last resync.

would've loved to jump in - but bad timing for me, in the middle of a move and couldn't get time to put my stuff up

Ricky,

Thanks for organizing this - I'm an idiot who had my want list done for a couple of days, but didn't realize it needed a final submit.

Anyway, if anyone else is interested in Heroes Wanted (KS version with Extra! Extra!), Council of Verona (w/both expansions), or an unplayed Betrayal at House on the Hill, get in touch. I'll post them back up on the flea market as well.

John

Ha, it's no biggy. I think I was a little too trigger happy with it. Maybe bi-annual is the target. I have full faith that the math trade in the winter will perform much better. Question is, before or after Xmas...

Yeah, thanks for setting this up! This was my first math trade so I got very lucky this time around.

Looking forward to the next one!
