Thought the following clips would be helpful for anyone attempting a math trade for the first time, as it can appear daunting at first glance.

Rahdo Runthrough

Part 1

Part 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__oGrGjHi4I

Part 3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTds59_PdEk

Part 4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3vhzs3Lm-8

There are other videos out there, but I feel that Rahdo does a great job of breaking everything down for someone new to trading.

Cheers!

Mike

Thanks, Mike!

These videos were very helpful.

I am working on prat 2 right now; is it possible to start want-lists yet on this math trade? Or is it not up yet?

Short answer is no. I create my own Excel spreadsheet myself, but this is definitely not necessary.

The want lists open up once the trades are locked in, which is looking like the 17th of October based on the trade guidelines. We then have a week to complete and submit our want lists to participate in the trade.

Since this is your first math trade, just because you list a game does not mean that it will be automatically traded away. You will determine later on if there is a game worth trading for the game you have listed.

With that in mind, if there are any games that you are on the fence about whether or not you should trade at this time, I would just add them to the list. Later on you can submit a blank want list, which I can explain more if needed, to prevent the game from even being traded away.

Mike, would you mind sending me your excel file that I can use as a template? I'll send you my email in a PM.

I thought you could start creating a want list at any time, on the OLWLG? And it already has a lot of native functionality to tag games for future perusal, set values for your own items for auto-matching, etc.

I don't have any items in this trade yet, so I can't go verify on the OLWLG just yet.

I tried this morning and could not, but you may be right on this one. It has been awhile since my last math trade. Plus I love Excel...yeah I have a problem. whistle

I just checked and it looks like the option to ADD it to your want list hasn't appeared yet. But all the games seem to be populating into the table correctly.

Scratch that! I just had to go through the proper login process. Now I have the option to add them to my want list.

It's a green light all around, folks.

Hey all, I have added a number of items to the math trade, but would consider other items from my owned list. Please check out my profile and if you see anything you want added let me know!

From your owned list, I wouldn't mind a shot at K2, Manhattan Project, and to really shoot the moon your Arkham Horror Promotional cards. And I fully understand if you don't want to list them

Figure this is worth a shot... here's a list of games I'm hoping people put into the math trade that I'd like to try for:

Descent 2nd Edition
K2
Dead Men Tell No Tales
Carnival Zombie (I know, not bloody likely, but still...)
Puppet Wars
The Warlock of Firetop Mountain
7-Card Slugfest
Kill the Overlord
Battle Cattle: The Card Game
Defenders of the Realms
Dark Minions
Splendor

And if there are games other people are looking for that haven't been listed yet, I'd say go ahead and list them and see if you get lucky.

I'm likely going to be at the NUGG night this Friday. I can answer any math trade questions in person. I'll bring my laptop as well, just in case we need to pull it up and walk through anything.

Great job everyone! Time to submit your want lists on the OLWLG now. Remember that you can submit your wants as many times as you would like, but (and this is very important!) each time you change your want list, you always have to click the green "Submit your lists Here!" button and confirm your choices each and every time. You will get a geekmail for each time you submit them correctly.

Also, I will not be able to do any test runs this week (Fall Break For The Win!), so if you are curious about how your games are trading prior to the deadline, I will be unable to accommodate. Sorry.

Good luck and Happy Trading!

So I posted on the actual list this request, but just wanted to post here as well. If anyone is willing to be a courier for me from Logan, I would be very grateful.

My wife and I are due on November 8, so I don't think I should be heading down to Roy for this math trade due to that. If I am unable to find someone, I will simply submit a blank want list to not interfere with the trade.

Should have thought about this before posting the items. blush

Want list in. Not optimistic, I was pretty conservative.
