The Londond Family Game Day is coming up on Saturday November 9th, 2013 at Victoria Public School, 130 Wharncliffe Road South from 10am to 6pm. For more details, make sure to check their Facebook page or the Meetup page for more information.

Everyone is welcome to participate in this trade but you are obligated to deliver and pick-up your traded games at the convention (details posted below) - or to have a proxy deliver/pick-up in your place. Please note that although the LFGD organizers are graciously providing the space for this trade, they do not have any involvement with its management or take any responsibility for it. Any issues relating to the Math Trade must be taken up with the trade organizer, Jorage, directly. Furthermore, space is limited, and the the space they are providing for the sake of the math trade is only available for a short window. As such, it is expected that all traders will deliver their games by 10am to the designated math trade area. Games will be available for pick-up shortly thereafter once all submissions have been verified. If your situation changes, and you cannot be there to drop off or pick-up, it is incumbent upon you to make arrangements with your trade partners to fulfill your obligations.


Trade list is located here.


The Particulars (all times are EASTERN TIME):

Submissions Open: immediately
Submissions Close: Sun. Nov 3 10pm
Want Lists Due: Wed. Nov 6 10pm
Results will be posted shortly thereafter.

Trade Date & Location:

Where: London Family Game Day, Victoria Public School, 130 Wharncliffe Road, London ON
When: Saturday Nov 9, 2013.
Time: 9:45 - 10:15am - receive submissions.
10:15 - 10:30am - pick up new games.

The Rules:

1. Boardgames, boardgame related items, Video Games, RPG items, Gift Certificates, GeekGold and non-gaming nerdy items are all permitted. There is no limit to the number of entries each person can have. Gift certificate and GeekGold arbitrage is NOT permitted.

2. Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG", "Miscellaneous Game Merchandise" or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item to ensure they appear properly in the OLWLG.

3. You must describe, as accurately as possible, the condition of both the components and box, language and edition of your item and any sweeteners. You must also inventory the game's components and list anything missing and/or damaged. If you do not, the game must be complete, in like-new condition and be the most recent English edition.

4. Sweeteners are to be listed using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown or you can manually insert the GAMEID using BGG formatting to have them show up in the OLWLG properly.

5. Do NOT delete any entries or sweeteners after they have been listed. You can always submit a blank want list for an entry if you've traded it away before the deadline or decided to keep that item. If your plans have changed and you cannot attend the trade, please submit a blank want list so that we are not trying to frantically contact you at the last minute!

6. You are required to periodically check your entries for comments and respond to them appropriately. The OLWLG will let you know if any of your items have unanswered comments.

7. If you have been reported as a bad trader or disregard any of the above rules, I will submit a blank want list on your behalf.

The Other Stuff:

If you want to know more about Math Trades and how they work, read the thread "MATH TRADES for Dummies".

It's best to work on your want list early since you can always make changes and resubmit your list anytime before the want list submission deadline.

Creating want lists is not the same as submitting them. You will receive a confirming GeekMail message when you submit your want lists (it may be truncated). If you don't get one, your want lists haven't been submitted properly.

Use of the OLWLG (On-Line Want List Generator) is required for this trade. If you have never used the OLWLG tool before, please read the wiki page. Please consider tipping JeffyJeff some GG for his support.

Have fun and good luck!

Anyone have a copy of Red November for trade? I figure it's a common game that isn't worth a whole lot...it might be considered equivalent to one of the lesser titles I plan to trade away.

I would mind a copy of Earth Reborn...that sounds pretty cool.

I'm just curious...I have some dice trays I've made and thought of bringing some with me to this event. They're basic, solid, sturdy dice rolling trays that have been dampened so the sound isn't so loud. I was looking to sell them for like $8-10 if people were interested. I don't know what the market is like for that type of thing. I guess if people are interested they could PM me on here.


Please don't bring anything to sell at the LFGD; it's just for gaming, teaching and swapping any won product from this Math Trade.

Richard Hamm (rahdo), prolific board game reviewer recently did a run-through on how Math trades work, for any newbies (like myself) to give yourself a better understand on how it all works. It's where I'll be learning the ins and outs of this craziness!

It has 4 parts total.

The geek list has been locked down, and the OLWLG is open for submissions.

Remember, you have until 10pm Wednesday to get your wants in.

Well, I came here all set to remind everyone that we're entering the final 24 hours of the submission period - but it looks like that's already been done for me...

Thanks Luc!

Very addictive! The only catch with this one is that we have a small pool of trade items this time, so there may or may not be many trades that occur.

I'm betting on slim to none... but it's a start. Hopefully it gets the word out to people in the area and the next one will be bigger. (Fingers crossed)

Well I am willing to bring my stuff to the game day and anybody who wants something can trade with me there....assuming I don't trade it away to somebody officially via the math trade.

Yeah that's something we can all look into once the stats are released. You can see what items people were willing to trade for your items, etc., that didn't fit in the math trade circles. Then reconsider if you'd actually trade for any of those items in a one-on-one.

Reminder notices have gone out to those who haven't yet submitted. Hopefully we'll get them all in under the wire.

Results are now up. Congratulations to the two of you trading!

Thanks everyone for your participation - sorry we couldn't make more trades happen. Hopefully, if there's interest, we can grow these trades to get more folks involved and see a much higher trade percentage!

WoW!! only two trades!

I am still willing to make trades with the stuff I didn't manage to trade away. If anyone is interested please PM me. I don't know what time I will be able to go to this event as I couldn't get out of work.

I meant to post in here, jtemple didn't have wants from the submitted products, so I told him a blank wantlist was fine, but also that if he didn't get to that then it wouldn't matter as his chain was dead anyway.

That was expected. Just look at the link 'who wanted my stuff' (an a-b venn diagram button) to see what might have been traded and PM an offer.
