2020 Arizona Game Fair No Ship Math Trade
Welcome to the Official 2020 Arizona Game Fair No Ship Math Trade!
Math Trade is complete!
Official Results are posted here.
We will meet up in the parking lot of Building A of the Mesa Convention Center @ 1 PM on Saturday March 21st. This will be the same time as the original Math Trade.
During the exchange we will observe the prudent precautions. No hand shaking, keep distance except from those you are trading with, bring hand sanitizer. Thanks.
After careful consideration, we are going to continue with the Math Trade, albeit it will likely be reduced in size / scope.
If you are not willing to meetup at that time and place, then you should submit EMPTY want lists for all your games. Essentially indicate that you aren't interested in anything (i.e. no checks in any of the boxes for stage 4). Be sure to submit/resubmit your want list AFTER you make that change
If you have any questions/concerns, feel free to contact me directly via Geekmail.
What's a math trade?
An opportunity to trade your unwanted games with other users for their unwanted games. What's great is that the algorithm matches up the trades and you never get something that you haven't specifically asked for. Learn all about Math Trades here Math Trade Wiki.
All trades are intended to be made in-person at the AZ Game Fair held at the Mesa Convention Center March 20th to 22nd, 2020.
Note: You must be a badge holder to participate in this Math Trade.

Discussion Thread - Note, comments on items are disabled on this list. Please use this thread for any questions / discussion related to the Math Trade.
It is suggested that items should have the following format so it is clear what is being traded:
Condition: This should be described as accurately as possible. If games are not in shrink, please inventory them to ensure all pieces are present or list out which ones are missing. Do not assume all pieces are there!
Language: Language of the item / language independence of components.
Edition/Publisher/Year: The edition, publisher and/or year of the item.
Comments: Any misc. comments about the item. Bonus items / sweeteners / etc.
RULES AND GUIDELINES:
Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/ is required for this event.
Only traders who are attending the Arizona Game Fair may enter. You will be physically handing these games to their new owners. This is a NO SHIP math trade.
The exchange will take place at 1 PM on Saturday, Mar 21st at the Arizona Game Fair in the theater.
The exchange normally goes pretty fast and we’ve had great success with this in the past. If for some reason it turns out you won’t be at the game fair it is your responsibility to coordinate meeting up with the individuals you must give and/or receive games from.
You must accurately describe your games condition, language, publisher, etc. If you neglect to mention a defect or missing piece the onus is on YOU to solve the problem to the new owner's satisfaction. Some people are collectors more than gamers and are very particular about condition. White corners or a creased instruction manual might not bother you but it could very well bother the person getting it, so BE SPECIFIC.
If you discover, after posting an item, that it is missing something or is somehow different than your post would suggest, then please edit it to say "Item Removed" and re-post it.
I reserve the right to remove games from the list for whatever reason. If you are on the bad traders list, your games will be removed.
Non-gaming items are allowed. You can trade for Giftcards, Geek Gold, Dvds, etc. Please use the altname format and try to keep it as short as possible. E.g. +altname+ $20 cash -altname-
Most of all this is going to be fun. Please approach it with the spirit of friendliness and cooperation. We all love this hobby and love sharing games with others. This math trade is an opportunity to find new homes for the games you have outgrown!
You are responsible for knowing these rules. Any violation of the rules may result in disqualification from this trade and future trades.
About Math Trades / Want Lists:
You can start creating your want lists any time after the start of the event. But remember to double check everything once submissions have closed in case anything has changed.
Please note that it's best to work on your want lists and submit them early - you can always make changes and resubmit later. This will prevent you from being left out if you forget the deadline.
Remember that you may have saved your want lists, but they have NOT been submitted until you have pressed the green button in step 4 and received a confirming Geekmail.
You are not obliged to trade anything you put up for offer. If you offer a game, but see nothing that you are willing to accept for it in trade, you can submit a blank want list for that game and it will not trade.
If, however, you do submit a want list for a game, then it is expected that you will honor any trade that the TradeMaximizer comes up with.
You will not receive anything you did not list as acceptable for the game(s) you have offered, so it is important to check your want lists when they are posted publicly (see dates), to correct any errors.
