2017 Geekway Trade Table
- Jeff HiattUnited States
This the list for Geekway attendees to propose an entry for the 2017 Trade Table.Recommend
Please read the rules carefully at the following link as there are SIGNIFICANT CHANGES from previous years.
Key changes are:
Participants limited to approximately 50 (target of 150 games).
Event is only 2 hours, 11 to 1 on Saturday (game check in is still Friday).
Picking will be fast and furious due to being in a "smallish" room.
The proposed changes will reduce the impact to non-participants and at the same time produce a more intense and enjoyable experience for those trading. Limiting to 3 makes it possible for out of town attendees to bring 3 games and participate where in past years, (with bundling) it was much harder. Finally the quality of the games should be very high, though there is almost certainly to be some disagreement on what constitutes a quality submission and what does not. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
Entering procedure: (copied from Geekway website)
Entering the trade table event will not be a first come / first serve event. There will be a geeklist on BGG which attendees interested in participating can add an entry indicating what three games they would submit.
A group of as of yet to be determined GW personnel will review each submission. A submission can get an "accepted" or "conditional" rating. Accepted means this set of games is guaranteed to have a slot in the event. Conditional means you might make it but if there are other submissions with a "better" set of games, you could miss the cutoff.
One week before the convention, a final assessment will be made and the geeklist closed. This may or may not complete the final list of participants. If there are not enough submissions that we are comfortable with accepting, then there may be some slots held for walk-ups.
NOTE: See the first item in the list to get an idea of how to enter. 1829 is combined with the Northern board and while they were designed as separate games, using the exact same set of rules, there are rules for using both boards in the same game.
7 Wonders and Summoner Wars are solid games, ranked 28 and 102 respectively. Both are unplayed with the former shrink wrapped and the latter with 4 extra factions and all of the decks still shrink wrapped.
So if you are wondering if two games can or cannot be bundled or have any other questions. Ask. Contact me here on BGG and we can figure it out.
NOTE: It's not just highly rated games which are good options. Out of print games can be very good choices as can oddities such as "skittle ball". Skittle Ball was entered a couple years ago and was taken in the first few picks.
