What's the current level of interest in me running a local math trade?

Maybe with an exchange at an upcoming Tuesday game night at Game Empire?

This is now the official discussion thread for the San Diego No-Ship Math Trade - Fall 2019 Edition.

Here's the link to the trade geeklist: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/262932/san-diego-no-s...

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
I'd love one, but could only do the weekend. :/ I think I missed out on the last one as well since it was during the week.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
Isaac - You could always meet someone before (another person in the trade perhaps) and have them come on your behalf...


Does Game Empire generally work for everyone? If not, where?

Do other people prefer weekend vs weeknight?

The more people that we get to participate, the more trades we'll get.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
I'd be interested! Normal Tuesday night at GE would be best for me.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
do you have to have games to offer for the math trade or can you just participate as a potential buyer?

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
You can absolutely list cash offerings or gift cards.

It allows the possibility of someone without a game to get a game even if the person with that game only wants another game in exchange (ie, looking to trade not sell).

I run the monthly nationwide trade and allow them there. Math trades that include them generally result in more trades. The only caveat is that BGG considers trades with gift cards to be purchases, and they need to be run through the BGG marketplace. (As are items in the VFM) BGG wants their 3% share.

The beauty of a local trade is that we don't all have to shell out money for shipping, which makes it easier to trade smaller or lower-valued games, which are hard to move in a shipping math trade.

I would participate - the last one I participated in was at At Ease Games during the week. Perhaps we could poll the group as to location preference.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
So far, that's about 8 people...

Get the word out & ask around. The more participants the better.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
Here are my current thoughts on the whole weekday vs weekend exchange:

If the physical exchange is to be at Game Empire on a Tuesday night, I'll make sure the trade is run and results are posted the previous Thursday. That way people who can't attend would have the weekend to get their traded games into the hands of someone who can attend.

Thoughts?

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
I'd participate and can likely facilitate for a few of my non-BGG gaming friends as well.

I'm flexible on the when/where details.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
I'd like to participate. I've been looking for a no ship math trade. Depending on the week, Tuesday can be difficult for me, though. I might be able to get my brother to make the exchange for me, but that would be 1930 or later before he could get by there. I've got a few things to offer. If it happens, I'll work it those details on my end before listing anything.

Re: Math Trade Anyone?
I am still very much interested. I have a bunch of good but not being played by my group games that are physically large/heavy that make shipping math trades not worth it.

Count me in! I'm pretty flexible with most days except for Sunday. I'd prefer At Ease Games, only because it's closer for us North County folks. But I'm flexible on the meetup place as well.
