Hello, I'm new to Math Trade but I'm having trouble figuring out how to add my "For Trades" and "Wants". I have a BGG account with my collection. I've synced up my data to the Math Tool.

I don't know what to do next.

- Go into the math trade (using the link you used to get to the sync)
- Find this math trade and click on the link
- click on the icon of a Box with a green plus, and it will let you start adding your games
- you can choose to get it to show your "for trade" items in your collection first, and then for each one you can add some text about edition, language, condition, sweeteners (if necessary) and then click to post them one at a time to the Geeklist

What about my "Wants in Trade"?

It's one of the other icons, but you should wait a few days at least before you start marking them, because the list only syncs maybe 1-2 times per day (manually by the organizer).

Did you read the instructions for that part? It's a little harder to explain.

I found watching the videos that are linked in the main trade thread, to be very helpful. I think there's also some from Rahdo as well that are good.

Once you get the hang of it, it is fairly easy but the videos help a lot to lessen the learning curve.

Thanks for all the help.

I figured out how to add items I want to trade, but how do I add items I want? Or are wants done automatically via my BGG collection?

That would be "Step 3" in the Online Want List Generator, the OLWLG.

You don't add your "wants in trade" games, but rather you add games that other people have listed in this particular math trade. Your BGG account "wants in trade" list has nothing to do with math trades (except one function, see Jamie's post below mine). A Math trade "want list" is entirely separate, and is managed separately still for each individual math trade.

Please read/watch the Math Trade Tutorials, it really DOES answer all your questions. I learned this way, and it's really easy.

One clarification:

Your BGG Want in Trade (and Want to Play, owned, prev owned, etc) are all colour coded in the list you'll go through to add items to your Want list. So it's useful as a sort of flag, but doesn't do anything else.
