Canadian/Ontario Math Trades

For those who missed my last Math Trade, I'll be hosting a new Canada-wide Math Trade. You can find the details here.

I will also be trying my darnedest to run a monthly Canadian Math Trade.

So that I don't have to spam every forum every month (because BGG won't simply let me post in the Canada forum) letting people know when I'm hosting it, I'm letting you know now to be on the look out every month for my Math Trade.

You can subscribe to this thread or subscribe to the Math Trade Announcement thread as I'll announce it in both each month. I know, I know, if you simply subscribe to the Math Trade Announcement thread you'll get an announcement whenever someone hosts a Math Trade... but is that really a bad thing?

If you'd prefer to be notified through GeekMail when they will be happening I'd be happy to accommodate for this. Simply GeekMail me letting me know that you'd like to be on my GeekMail notification list and I'll send you a GeekMail every time I host a Math Trade.

Other people may feel free to post their Canadian/Province/Convention specific Math Trades here as well.

How do I get in on this?


I'd be happy to walk you through it, step by step, if you'd like (and anyone else for that matter). Simply GeekMail me and I'll respond giving detailed answers about the steps you are in.

Quick Overview on Taking Part:

Taking part in a Math Trade is simple, and relatively worry free.

Step 1: Locate the Active Math Trade List

Follow the links and find the list for the math trade. This is generally known as the Trade GeekList (Click Here for the Current Math Trade).

Step 2: Checking Key Dates

You will want to ensure you'll be available to submit during the submission period, or if not message the moderator about alternatives for your want list.

Step 3: Reading Rules

Of course, I can't say this isn't important. Most are straightforward, and the same every math trade, but it's always good to re-read them and ensure you understand them.

Step 4: Adding Items

This step is interchangable with Step 5. You can request items first if you like to base what you list on what others have listed, or list your items first to try and prompt some more listings.

There are a number of steps involved in this. If it is your first math trade, on the Math Trade GeekList page under the header is a link Add Item (Click Here for a Picture of the Location of this Link). It will take you to a page for you to add an item to the GeekList. Here you will list the item you are looking to trade. First you select Board Game. This will load the description fields for you to fill out. First enter the Board Game name, this should load the main image automatically (you can change this if you desire). One you have the board game selected, enter the appropriate description of your items. (Click Here for a Picture of the Page Layout). Then click Save.

Do this as many times as necessary to add all games you are looking to trade in the Math Trade (it's unlikely all items will trade).

Step 5: Requesting Items

This step is interchangable with Step 4. You can request items first if you like to base what you list on what others have listed, or list your items first to try and prompt some more listings.

There are a number of steps involved in this. On the Math Trade Request List page under the header is a link Add Item (Click Here for a Picture of the Location of this Link). It will take you to a page for you to add an item to the GeekList. Here you will list the item you are hoping that someone lists. First you select Board Game. This will load the description fields for you to fill out. First enter the Board Game name, this should load the main image automatically (you can change this if you desire). One you have the board game selected, enter comments if you would like. (Click Here for a Picture of the Page Layout) Then click Save.

Do this as many times are required to request any items you hope to see listed (this doesn't mean they will be listed).

Step 6: Creating your Want List

This step is all about figuring out what you want from the Math Trade (this may be anywhere from nothing to a whole bunch of stuff). You can go through the list on BGG or through the OLWLG to read over what other people listed and see what you would like.

You will add stuff to your Want List via the OLWLG (Click Here for Information on Using the OLWLG). If you have trouble or need assistance with the OLWLG, feel free to ask, and I'd be happy to help out.

Keep in mind that you can work on your want list before the want list submission period opens, you will just not be able to submit your wants until that time.

Step 7: Submitting your Want List

Once the Trade GeekList is closed, generally want list submissions will be opened. At this point in the OLWLG you can click the Submit my Want List and then Submit to submit your Want List into the system. Again, if you need further assistance with the OLWLG I'd be happy to offer my assistance to anyone who needs it.

Final Comments:

I hope this helps you to understand how the process of taking part works. I realize that it is very brief, but as stated I'd be happy to go into further detail about any of the steps which you are questioning. I can go ahead and send screenshots, etc as a way of guiding you through if necessary.

Edit: Keep in mind that you will never get a trade that you did not have prior knowledge of. You will create your own want list, and if there is an item you end up not wanting to trade, simply submit a blank want list for the item and it will not be traded. Only games that end up on your want list will be possibilities for you to get in a trade. Keep in mind when creating your want list that any items you select will be considered as possibilities in the Trade Maximizer (and whichever leads to more trades will be selected). But you will never end up with a game you did not add to your want list.

I do hope to see you participating!
