This trade list is unlike the chain lists normally seen on BGG. It is based on the bid-rank system suggested by Tim Kilgore and subsequently refined in Craig Viau's geeklist.

SUMMARY: In this trade list, participants will ante up a game of their choice for trade. Once the trade list has reached capacity (~20 games), all participants will submit their rankings to me by geekmail. Games will then be redistributed based on the collective rankings. More details below.

CRITERIA OF PARTICIPATION:
- You must have a USA address to ship to. I don't care where you are shipping from.
-At most, 2 games per participant.
-Games anted up must have a value of at least $15, probably not more than $25, and be in good, playable condition with all original components present. The game must furthermore have at least 20 people wanting it and an average rating of at least 6.
-You may combine games to make the ante.
-You may not duplicate a game that is already listed.
-You may add alternates to generate interest (Highly recommended).
***You can add a game that someone else has listed as their "alternate", as long as you post it as your main trade and you DO NOT list an alternate. Duplications in the alternates are not allowed.


# of PLAYERS:
Once this list reaches 15 games, a 2-day end-of-trade window will be triggered. People will have exactly 48 hours to add to the list. The trade list will however be capped at 25 games, for administrative purposes. So at a minimum, 15 games will be ranked - at a maximum, 25.

RANKING GAMES:
Once the list reaches the time deadline (2 days after reaching 15 games) or capacity (25 games), each player will send me a list of the games placed in order of preference for ownership. Games are to be ranked in terms of absolute preferences only.

Each game will garner points as below:
Each #1 pick - 2*(number of games entered)
Each #2 pick - (number of games entered)- 1
Each #3 pick - (number of games entered)- 2
...and so on. Notice the importance of getting some #1 picks?

The player who's game got the most points gets his number one choice off of his submitted list. Followed by the player with the second best point total who also takes his first choice unless its already gone then he gets his second choice and so on. Ties will be resolved by highest average ranking.

***RULE CHANGES***:
- Your own anted games WILL NOT be considered in the scoring of ranks. Hence you cannot bump up your own games in the collective rankings. Place your anted game in your rankings at the point where you would rather get your game back then take a game lower in your rankings.
- If you entered two games, I will only need a single ranking list (it will be scored once).


TIMELINE:
Once we reach the critical mass of games, the players have 3 days to privately geekmail me their list of ranks. If 3 days pass and I have not heard from you, I will make your picks for you randomly (these results will not affect the ranking results). If you actually want your picks made this way, please let me know and don't make us wait for 3 days.

Technical crap:
I reserve the right to close this down for any reason at any time. I reserve the right to remove any item at any time - I will try to explain why I have removed an item to the owner of the game removed.

I will post the results as soon as possible and I will be using Ed Jamer's excel spreadsheet to tabulate results. All of the picks made by each player and a summary of the relative popularity of the games in the list will be posted at the conclusion of the trade.

Have fun!

Played a few times, in excellent condition. And in the interest of gaining shelf space, I'll throw in FFG's Orcz, also in excellent condition. That's TWO FFG Silver Line games as ONE entry - not an alternate.

alright, i have deleted the Blue Moon expansions offering, and am replacing it with this. The Blue Moon Expansions are still an alternate for this, so in case you wanted those, don't fret. The expansions available are: Terrah and Flit.

hopefully this will make folks happier.

Empire Builder is the version shown. It is in good used condition. When I got it the game was missing 2 commodity chips and one player token. I have since replaced the chips (plus a few extra for backup) and replaced all the plastic pawns with nice wooden ones. The old pawns are still there too. There is light shelf wear on the box, no split corners, but there is some light blue bic pen on the front of the box.
